Map change not working, Devs blame stray fingers and insufficient RAM? Ability to change map type not working - fails and resets map position every time, dev support calls started with blaming screen size and I could "perhaps be tapping the refresh button?" (I am not that dumb - the map selection popup appears and there is no such button within easy touching distance of map change so could hardly hit one by accident) and ended with "could be the low memory on the device". High memory usage ? This is a 2d map app that does not cache even the whole small seattle area in the demo and loads on the fly from the cloud - the phone runs infinite flight, dungeon defenders, minecraft, gta and a plethora of other 3d and complex apps but cannot handle a 2d map that is not all loaded at once, seriously? The google play store even lists this as working on my old Galaxy Ace with far less available RAM. Avoid this app... and its actually $29.95 unless you only plan to fly around Seattle. The free part is a demo. Sad thing is as a fan of flight sims I was willing to pay the full whack but it simply does not work. Oh and I tried an app re-install, memory wipe and even a phone factory reset (was due one and nothing important could not be restored).
