    "Another map. I don't see much of a difference between this and free google maps. It's not terrible, but it doesn't offer much of anything different that I can't get for free. Works fine, but there are very similar free apps out there. "

    "NYC is some of the most famous land in the world, and so it should have the finest maps to go along with it. But of course everything in New York is about the lowest quality at the highest price. Simply trash."
