  1. App Launch


Draw Maps:

This is on our list of known problems that need to be solved. Until then we recommend being aware of where you mark on the map. You can use the “Zoom Fit” feature located in the more menu to zoom the map to show all marked areas.

This is a bug where the app can crash due to drawing a line so long that the device runs out of memory. We are working on a fix for this bug, but until the fix is complete we recommend the user stop the stroke and then continue drawing.

Due to the nature of the way the app marks in the map each stroke is redrawn onto the map once you release your touch from the screen. A solution to this problem is in the plans to be added soon.

Unfortunately, we do not currently offer an Android version of Draw Maps. There is no version for Android in the works, but we have not ruled it out for the future.
