Pros and cons of MilGPS app for iPhone and iPad

MilGPS app good for

Just as in the description, not more or less. Soldier proof. Could you please add a horizontal view?
If it would be in future possible to have a real topographic map or load up an topographic map to use, Ill give you 10 stars if possible :-) Really great App and every cent worth !
Ive used a bunch of apps that combine MGRS/UTM grid system with map/navigation. Out of all the apps, this is by far the best one. The UI, both functionally and aesthetically, is fantastic - it is beautiful, and every option is laid out logically and easily accessible. There are no gimmicky or superfluous functions that clutter the app. The developer is open to suggestions and replies to email promptly. Highly recommended.
Any military combat arms will love this app. Great as a back up or for a quick grid.
Love the map integration. Also great for calling in an air strike.
Still works great without signal if you use it with paper map. Very accurate. Great for Pl or Coy sightings.

Some bad moments

This is unusable. Support i’m still waiting for. If there was a way to get refunded I wold do this. Apple seems to only be able to sell stuff. They have sealed off any attempt at customer service.Find a better GPS, this is terrible. Every time apple sends an update to their OS, the laptop runs worse.
Why is it that only 5 (five) people have rated this? Is it because only 5 people have used it?
I spend $9.99 to buy this app but it doesnt work waste the money dont buy it
Great app, paid $10 for it, but its only compatible on iPhone/iPod. Need to be able to use it while Im on the range to help with targeting for the aircraft that Ill always be working with. Its not always plausible to just use your phone, will give 5 stars when add compatibility for iPad. Also, would like to see military map symbols integrated.
Love this app!! Works very well even in the most remote areas with no cell service. Really looking forward to Apple Watch being implemented into the app as well. Would love to be able to look at my watch and get distance to point, elevation and direction. Cant wait! Thanks for a great app!
So I dld this app sorta by accident. Nevertheless I want to learn how to proficiently use. See im old school military, and we navigated with a map & compass. Perhaps help files could be a little more geared toward the novice user. Any info you could give me on this would be appreciated.
