Missing multiple search results

The idea of this app is great, but it does not show multiple search results for you to choose from. It picks the destinations for you and runs the path. This was taking me all around the country for specifically local directions. Great potential though.

Good map app, but falls short in areas

This is the only way to put google maps on your windows device, and it could be better. The location it finds you at is miles off of where you actually are. Not only that, but the ui is very different from the actual google maps application. If you practice with the app though, it becomes very competent in what it set out to perform.

Simple searches that get the correct results in google maps get nothing here. Or, occasionally, something wildly inaccurate. If you do find what you're looking for and want directions, there is a friendly little button above the location for you to use. As long as you want them from "My Location". It apparently never occurred to anyone I might want them from somewhere else. Or that I might not have GPS enabled. Or to just open the directions dialog and leave it at that. Chimps could design a better app.

Good implementation of Google Maps

Works very well and the on-screen icons and buttons are well-sized for fingers, making it easy to use on a tablet (e.g. Surface Pro) My one complaint is that street view location isn't very accurate. e.g. select my house, click on the street view icon: end up about 2 blocks away. This might have something to do with defaulting to HD view, which is beautiful, but apparently not complete coverage. Overall a very nice app though.

Not Simple

You can't drop the street view ma where ever - you have to search for the location and then hit the eye button, which takes too long. Also there is no Google account integration.

Red pointer arrow HORRIBLE

Almost every time I try to move the map around by click and sliding the pointer, I get an arrow and info box blocking my view of a portion of the map that I usually need to see. Would be nice to have a on/off switch to allow for the pointer to not leave red arrows behind all the time. Really bad design that takes away from an otherwise good map program.

Doesn't work well on Win8.1

Very slow to load, mouse cursor disappears when running the app. Hope this app can be improved because I use Google maps on every other device without any issues.

Its a good app but

On smaller 8" devices like Dell Venue 8 Pro, performance lacks.. also in compass mode, ATOM processor gets quite hot

This app can't share... and whose fault is that?

So you print the directions, and naturally you want to email them to your phone. Go to the Charms Bar > Share > This app can't share. Sad. I blame Microsoft. I just don't see who else could be at fault here.
