Great app! I wish I could find a way to pay for it. The trial version would not let me pay for a full version.

I have to travel several places where there is no address, this app makes finding the exact location a breeze. Definitely a must have for me.

This is the first app I found that can obtain the address of whatever place by just tapping on the map. The integration with Here map makes it especially useful. Considering buying it but am hoping for an option to see the map in a standard Road view in addition to the default Aerial view, otherwise recognizing a place on the map could be hugely difficult (imagine a US-based user is trying to pinpoint a hotel in Sao Paulo before he takes off: without the text info in the Road view, even locating the Sao Paulo CITY is impossible!).

HERE map integration does not work, says the browser does not support it and took me to the HERE website. The experience there is not so good. Why can't it just use the local version of HERE map? Updated: Maybe this is not the fault of the app. When I shared the location via email, clicking the link took me to the mobile HERE website and returned the message that my phone browser does not support it and offered the HERE.com site. That did not work well there, fine when running from a desktop.

Well, Well, Well. This is a great app, but! When I looked at the setting to set up the OneDrive integration, I was appalled. Why in the world would I give this app or any app for that matter, permission to : Access my name, gender, display picture, contacts, and friends. 2: Access your info anytime 3: Access and edit your OneDrive? Sure it says that I can change these settings anytime in the account settings, but PLEASE! I like the app, too bad it is just so obtrusive. DELETE

This is one of my favorite apps. The developer has done a great job of leveraging the full range of WP8 available features, including voice commands and back-up to Skydrive. The HERE apps integration is the icing on the cake

works well, easy to use, like the txt/email feature. And unlike some apps, the location was dead-on.
