    I like it for what our does. Figured it for something else then initially thought, but after you play with it, or isn't hard to figure out. I use it mainly when I'm at someone's house that I have as a contact then the app lets me save there address easily, even when at work, it lets me save work place contact addresses' very fast.

    you can not just tap and hold and get the coordinates, how are you supposed to know the address in the middle of the forest

    Still a ridiculously cheesy looking ui. Can't believe such a superiorly designed app has such a childish looking interface. Hire a graphic design person
