Bartsoft Inc. has released its new iOS mobile application MapCalculator, an app that helps to measure distance from point A to point B, compose complex distance paths or simply measure an area of a soccer field. Map Calculator is very flexible. The app allows users to have the center pin as the guide to compose the path on the map by adding and subtracting anchor points. The total distance (or area, if that mode is selected) is automatically updated.
The user can save the path for future reference just by tapping the check mark and giving it a name. When saved, an offline map image is automatically generated (if internet connection is available) that can be accessed without internet connectivity later on. The user can also customize the paths visually by choosing from 5 different colours and line thicknesses. With some people being color blind, there’s a color in the app for everyone.
