Editors' Review

+

People who are disappointed in the Google Maps Internet interface might want alternatives for viewing maps online. eMaps for Mac allows you to operate a different interface, although the lack of any additional features ultimately makes the program unnecessary.

Available as a free trial version, there is an option to buy eMaps for Mac for $10. The trial version had no noticeable limits. The program's small size led to a quick download and, while there was no native installer, it did initiate and start quickly. There were no instructions or support readily apparent. The interface has an intuitive design that is actually similar to that of Google Maps itself. A text bar at the top allows the physical address to be entered. Once located, the map renders quickly and brings up a pop-up box with the street view photo. Buttons at the top of the program allow you to switch between map and street view easily. You can navigate maps and street photos by clicking and dragging an icon, just as with the Internet maps application. The program's operation was smooth overall with no glitches or errors.

For people who desire a different look and feel for their Google Maps interface and don't mind paying $10 for it, this rather functional app could be a good solution.

"Constantly Crashes"

October 02, 2012  |  By kiddus_i2003

 |  Version: eMaps 2.8.0.003

Pros

Still a very good app. simple easy to use

Cons

Try magnifying any map and after one or two attempts it slows, then crashes.To date it has crashed every time I've used it and especially when I want to get down to street level.Nothing helps , originally the designer had resolved the time out problems but now I find they are back with no resolving.

Summary

Stick with the earlier version, this one is useless.

"Yaaaaaaaawn!"

March 28, 2012  |  By gmjm66

 |  Version: eMaps 2.6.7

Pros

None - It is like something from 8 years ago.

Cons

Help is no help.

Very unintuitive user interface. Difficult to delete markers, you must delete the whole route.

I could never find a way to get rid of...
- "Get Address" markers
- street view markers
- photo icons
...they just littered the whole map until you reset and lose everything.

No way to add a location into the middle of an existing route.

No way to reorient (rotate 90 degrees) the printable map to be landscape and fill the page.

"Better than Google Earth?" Are you crazy? eMaps is more like Google Map's very early days. It doesn't have ANY of the Google Earth functions, especially 3D. Even without 3D, eMaps still is terrible... very frustrating!

Summary

Even as a totally free app, I'm deleting it as a waste of space.

"The little Mapp that is"

March 19, 2011  |  By kiddus_i2003

 |  Version: eMaps 2.2.1

Pros

Ease of use, simplicity, price.

Cons

None yet still working on it.

Summary

I have been using this software for a couple of months and found it to be far superior to any other on the market.Planning a cycle tour through Japan and have what I call paper maps, aerial and topographics to plot my directions.Have already been to Japan a number of times so used my previous knowledge to work out any bugs this software might have, it hasn't failed yet.Proven by laying it side by side with Mapple fold out maps from Japan close to 100% accurate and in English, what more can you ask for?
