User reviews affect conversion to installs and app rating. Featured and helpful reviews are the first to be noticed by users and in case of no response can affect download rate. This is why it is highly recommended to reply to them.
What a great little app! I found out about the app in a column on the Air France magazine last year and I can't believe how handy it's been since. I travel a good amount and I love tagging great restaurants in every city that I go to, and the ability to share makes it even more handy. Having the option to tag different categories (restaurants, discotheques, stores, etc) also makes it easy to look for all your saved places at a glance, and the list option sorts places based on distance, so if you save recommendations from friends you can find out how close you are to all of them and make a decision based on that. Legitimately very happy, and I wish the developer a lot of success!
Mapstr is perfect for planning a vacation. The endless lists of recommended hot spots - from friends, family, travel magazines -come to life in a map, and with the proximity alerts, you won’t miss a thing as you wander around a new city. The interface is easy to navigate and beautiful. We absolutely love the custom tagging for easy filtering, and we can add a comment for each spot noting how we learned about it. Check out Mapstr’s Facebook page for recommended ambassadors to follow. I’m also using the app to share recommendations in our neighborhood for our house guests. Highly recommended!
I never write app reviews but the team behind Mapstr should know they have impacted my life for the better by developing it. I live in NYC and keeping track of "that one place we went to last month with the great dessert" has been a problem in my life for years. Google is still behind and Apple has no real solution. In comes Mapstr with the radically simple idea of tagging locations and utilizing a strong set of integrations with other services instead of reinventing the wheel. I'm looking forward to seeing development continue and what other features the team cooks up. There is definitely room for improvement here and the potential monetization strategies in the future will hopefully propel this app forward without intrusive in-app ads. Features I want: - Yelp integration; I want to see yelp ratings / - Public maps; I want to be able to share a map with a friend without them joining; double edged sword for growth I realize though / - Map-view search / - Redesigned tagging; the tagging interface could use some TLC from a ux maestro / - More releases; keep on developing!!
For over 30 years, I've been collecting matchbooks from places I've been to from around the world...restaurants, pubs, hotels, etc. I literally have hundreds of matchbooks. I've been looking for an app to somehow organize and visually track all the places I've been to. No App from major maps companies (Apple, Google, MapQuest) has the functionality and features that Mapstr has. I like how if the restaurant I went to 20 years ago is no longer around, I can manually enter the name and address and a photo so that it shows up ok the map. Great job Mapstr!!!
This app definitely fills a gap! I love the ability to add any location and tag it however I want. Auto complete searching for a point of interest works great. Here are the issues... Tag colors are light colors with white text - impossible to read. The sharing and invite experience is downright terrible. You can't collaborate on a shared list - you can only view another's account as if you were signed in as that person. Invites don't work right away and cause confusion - especially when the app insists on inviting someone when you're already connected, adding them twice. Initial user name is random and not immediately discoverable, adding more invite confusion. Love the idea though!
