Cant search a location

:
I love this ap and its idea BUT has one major flaw...it needs to be able to search a location like google maps not just find your current location... I'm a photographer and I bought this to plan future photoshoots at specific locations ( not my current location) and scout the light patterns to plan my schedule and for that it does not help me.. Too bad I was really excited.

4/5 stars

Great app but ...

:
Love this app. As a landscape designer its really useful but ... need ability to specify location without being located only by gps. I need to access information from my office or other location. Would love to just type in any address. Hopefully future versions will include this important ability.
