  • Greedy

    By No more PayPal
    What a joke.
  • Waste

    By C____H
    Even free forest maps aren't free here.
  • From Great to Crap

    By CA_Mapman
    I use this app to access USGS geo-spatial maps for field geology work. However, the developers decided to change the app significantly without letting the app buyers know of a key change. You have to BUY the free USGS maps thru their store! The developers took a useful app and made it useless to me. Avenza should refund the purchase price for the users who had the prior version (Avenza PDF). I am now looking for another tool to let me use the USGS maps without having to buy a free map!
  • From amazing to awful real fast!!

    By Ksewell24
    I have had this app forever and it was amazing. I loved being able to import maps and be able to see my location and add points of interest like campsites. This was an amazing app until it forced me to update and know it is utter crap! They want way to much for this app. For the price they want I could spend that money on a gps system! Thank you for ruining your amazing app definitely lost my support. Anyone intrigued in this app don't waste your time.
  • Zero Stars, I will delete this app

    By Disappointed fan123
    Very misleading, I wish I have read the reviews first. It is not free, you have to pay to import any map. Very expensive app.
  • Great map app

    By knobbytrav
    There are plenty of free maps in the store...I use this for mvum mostly and it's great!
  • Used to be great,...

    By fugdovr
    In a recent update Avenza's "extensive market research" led them to conclude that they should try to develop an income stream from people who import more than three free or user supplied maps. So they didn't tell us that previous functionality would be removed when you get the "free update". What an underhanded, cheating, misleading thing to do. I would have gladly paid for a newer version with added features or functionality, and I would gladly pay for new maps. Now I have to pay $30 per year to do what I was able to do last year?? I got cheated.
  • Suprise subscription "upgrade"

    By mi1357
    They added a subscription requirement in v3. This should have been explained and a different version released in the app store. I purchased once. Adding a subscription requirement to an automatic upgrade is poor form.
  • Horrible decision!

    By pereirahawk1973
    I loved when it was Avenza app...then, they follwed up the name change to PDF maps by removing the one feature that peope were using this app for...unless you are willing to pay a annual fee. It was good as a free, in-app purchase app; and horrible as a paid app.
  • Too expensive

    By Craw38
    $30 for maps! Google is free but they want 30 bucks for maps.
  • Great app - but not for the price

    By Fhhowdy
    Avenza is a great geo-PDF viewer. It has features that are really cool and well executed, but I am disappointed that they overvalued their market worth. If they did a market survey, I'd fire the person who did it. This is a great product and the features are solidly in the $5 range. Not $30 and definitely not $30 annually. The features are cool, but until they are numerous and groundbreaking at scale, they will never be worth the current asking price. I'm rating this 3 stars in hopes they will wake up and correct their error.
  • Great once upon an older version

    By nickylaiden
    I am a Deputy Sheriff patrolling a county in the area of 3300 square miles of mountains. I used to use this app every day, most notably to locate people during search and rescue missions and to coordinate operations with other agencies. I just attempted to download updated radio coverage maps and they now want me to pay $30.00 a year. Whoever made this decision is helping to make the world a lot more dangerous by limiting the ability for firefighter, EMTs, pilots, law enforcement, and search and rescue teams. The hunt is on for a new mapping app, it was great while it lasted.
