Pin Drop app review: user-friendly mapping

Reviews

Introduction

There's no need to be some kind of expert in reading maps just to use this app. The Pin Drop app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone is meant to be a user-friendly mapping tool. This app makes it possible to organize, save, and then share all your favorite places through the use of customized maps. There's no such thing as a generic map here because these ones highlight all the places that matter to you whether they be restaurants, sights, attractions, work, and more.

Your Map Your Way

Are you tired of looking at generic maps that really don't show you the things that matter to you? Imagine how great it would be to have one where all your favorite nightspots, restaurants, or shopping destinations are displayed? That's exactly what you'll get with the Pin Drop app. Through this app you'll be able to place pins in order to organize the map, you can then save it, and share it with all your friends and family. This is really a great way to remember places that stand out to you, you love, and you want to visit again. It’s also a great way to collaborate with others as you can all look at the same map and decide where to meet up, plan a holiday, pick that favorite spot to eat, and more.

Using the App

The Pin Drop app places a large emphasis on user-friendliness so that you aren't ever frustrated with it. You will be able to set up and share your own maps of course but you can also find out what's near to you and even check out tips from the top curators. You can also check out what your friends are up to by viewing their Pin Drops.

A great tip to using this app is to actually drop your pins as you discover and visit these places so you don’t forget about them later. It’s almost like keeping a visual journal of all your favorite spots. Using the app is free but you will need to set up an account the first time you use it. This will ensure all your information is kept stored.
