Draw on your maps with Map Draw
Map Draw is a new iPad app that lets you draw on maps. This could be great for runners who want to plan their route or for giving directions to a friend. Map Draw will even track the total distance, making it a pretty neat app.
- Use your finger to draw on the map. Our touch system makes plotting your route easy and accurate, and total distance is stored. This is the perfect tool for dynamically mapping a route or run on the iPad.
- Maps support forward geocoding, allowing you to search for any location by name or address.
- Use the zoom to location feature for easy access to your current location when drawing a route.
- Map type can be toggled between standard, satellite, and hybrid. The type is stored and remembered for each individual map.
- Plotting contains undo and clear-all support.
- Each map you create is stored in a journal-style interface for easy access. Every entry is plotted on a graphic map display.
- Journal interface is customizable.
- Application supports both landscape and portrait orientations.
- All Saved routes can be freely edited at any time. Changes are saved automatically.
- Information is cached locally, allowing you to view a route and map offline. However for pinching and zooming, an internet connection is recommended.
- Maps can be exported via email, or saved directly to the device in the photo library.
- All exported maps can be freely drawn on, allowing you to add additional notes, or paint directly on the map like a canvas.
- Application contains built-in help and support, is intuitive and easy to use.
Map Draw is available on the iPad for $1.99.

Former app and photography editor at iMore, Leanna has since moved on to other endeavors. Mother, wife, mathamagician, even though she no longer writes for iMore you can still follow her on Twitter @llofte.
You can only draw freehand on your map after it has been exported as a photo, so there is no way to adjust your route, or change the lines you put on your map once you have exported it.
All in all this is a horrible failure by Fishington Studios, and the price at $1.99 is highway robbery.
Leanna, STOP copying and pasting your articles from the app developers information. Try the app and write your own HONEST opinion. Your are costing people who trust you to review these apps hard earned $$$.
