Android App

 I think it would be great if you could support android users with an app

We would love to be able to support Android users with Map Pilot but Android apps do not financially support themselves the way iOS apps do. We would have to hire an entirely new team of engineers.

You can use one of the many free and capable Android apps that are available out there to collect data. You do not have to use our iOS only app to collect data to use Maps Made Easy. 

There are no plans for an Android version of the Map Pilot applications.

Hi Zane: Thanks for the fast response. This logic seems odd to me given how ubiquitous android is. I hope this decision is re-evaluated in the near future.

In the interim what are some of the "free and capable" Android apps that you recommend. Thanks

As far as third party mapping apps, unfortunately, I find Map Pilot the best.:-). I was holding off on buying a CS, but looks like an Android version of MP is not in the near future.

Thanks for the recommendation. I will try Map Pilot. We went with a competitor mapping platform as a result

As far as Maps Made Easy is concerned, it does not matter how you collect your data as long as it conforms to our Data Collection guidelines. It doesn't matter what app is used. The only reason we created Map Pilot, which was the first full featured app made available for mapping, was to have something to point to in helping people collect proper data. Before that, it was nearly impossible for the average user to do so. We are glad there are lots of apps and options out there to help people.
