GIS Kit Reviews

  • Could be Better

    By GIS Pro1
    This App has its issues and could be much better. The best GIS App on the market is WolfGIS. Used it for 3 years with no issues.
  • My go-to GIS app for several years now. Switched from wolfgis and never looked back

    By Ddd1600
    Worth every penny. No subscription fees. Switched to this from wolfgis pro a long time ago and I'm never going back. I can't understand what everybody's problem is with this app. It's been my go to GIS app for over three years now and I haven't found anything comparable.
  • Occasional issues

    By planetrobert
    It is a super powerful app with tons of great features. Sadly it crashes from time to time. I find that if I close everything else it runs just fine 99.9% of the time. I do hope for further updates for the semi-pro GIS app. I use it regularly and would likely be lost without it.
  • A piece of garbage

    By Piotr N
    I bought this incredibly expensive app at a friend's recommendation to use in a remote area of Africa with no access to the network. So far I have not been able to download a complete, high resolution map of any area and the app crashes frequently. Save yourself the frustration of trying to use this very pricey, poorly executed app. The app developer offers no technical support and deflects requests for refund by sending me to the Apple Store. Don’t waste your money.
  • I'm done with this app

    By afddasfad
    I give up. It's been the better part of 2 years since GIS Kit worked. I told the company all the things that were wrong....they told me to contact Apple directly for a refund. Take our money and run, huh? I don't even think the company Garafa exists anymore to be honest. I have tried to look them up and call, number disconnected. Whatever, I use Collector now.
  • Crashing and losing valuable work

    By Giacometti.
    The program crashed and I lost 3 hours of valuable field work! The program was updated the next day, so we will see what happens next! 2016 Still crashes, but a great little field app. Does what it promises. If I knew they would update it, I would purchase the full pro version.
  • Still crashes all the time

    By afddasfad
    I love this app. But I am losing my patience with the stability issues that started after the release of iOS 8. The recent updates fixed some of the issues, but it still crashes way too much to warrant the cost. With iOS 9 coming out I am starting to doubt this app will ever be as good as it used to be. All that would require is fixing stability problems, but he developers are incredibly slow to fixing these issues.
  • A little help please

    By Pilotc5289e
    Do not buy this app!!!! Used to be a good app but after the last update it doesn't work anymore. Support refuses to answer emails. No contact at all. Total waste of 100 bucks. I almost bought to pro version. Glad I didn't.
  • Was great; but no longer so

    By Mohan M
    Sad to see a really capable app getting sorely neglected. Not what I expect for the price I paid for this app. No serious update in a very long time. Not optimised for iPhone 6 plus. Constantly crashes. Unless you see the app being updated and maintained actively, please do not buy.
  • Does not build a consistent track

    By howardmb
    I have been out hiking a conservation boundary line earlier today with a partner and when I returned back to my desk, I found the app did not build a solid track across our hike. The really odd thing was a sister app, GPS Kit HD, was able to accurately build a solid track but not this version. Bummer, one of the biggest things I need beyond importing/exporting was the ability to keep a good accurate track. I'll update the review in the future if they improve the app but right now it isn't functioning the way it should.
  • Don't buy this App

    By CharlieMiddleton
    I used to use this app alot. The latest updates have killed the functionality. The app crashed unexpectedly all the time. I am in the field with no service frequently and I purchased to use for importing kml and kmz files from Google Earth. The program allows use of Google and Bing aerial imagery, which is fantastic, and it caches this data for when you are in the field with no service - again, fantastic for me. This used to be a very solid app and I would have given 5 stars prior to the latest update, but now it is junk. Please fix it.
  • Can not email files from app after last update.

    By CIDponic
    This is/was an excellent app, but after the Last update the app will no longer allow me to email any type of file from within it. Please implement corrective actions immediately or at least advise the masses as to when we shall expect this to be resolved. Thank you
