Pin Drop - Custom maps

Pin Drop - Custom maps


Pin Drop is a bookmarking tool for remembering the places that are important to you, helping you keep track of personally curated locations for travel, work and lifestyle interests.

Drop virtual pins to make a customised map, and group locations into categories. Add your own notes and images, then share lists with friends publicly or privately. Send pins to friends seeking for recommendations of where to go, what to see and do.

Pin Drop is also the first truly social mapping app, because the pins are generated by users and shared by the community.

Whether creating your own tour guide, keeping a memoir of places or just a practical and simple way to log a location, whatever it is: See it. Pin it. Remember it.

FEATURES:
- Import location data from all your social accounts
- Share places with friends, using private or public settings
- Collaborate with others to plan travel itineraries, share memories, or record group places of interest
- Send pins to friends, or your favourite navigation apps
- Browse through tips from top curators

TESTIMONIALS:

“Pin Drop might at first sound like another (yawn) map app, but this is something that once you’ve used you will move to the front page of your phone. Truly intuitive, truly smart, and truly useful.” - Stephen Fry

“What you have is an exceedingly useful app which also works offline, where you can drop pins of locations and recommend them, making them public or private.” - TechCrunch

“Pin Drop allows you to browse through lists of the best attractions and restaurants made by its community. But its best feature is really allowing you to pin a point on a map when you stumble across something interesting so you can remember its exact location.” - 88DB Singapore Lifestyle

Oh thank god. Google Maps doesn't support its custom maps on its app. There went all my carefully curated "places to eat after midnight" and "discount shopping" maps. Now, all my places are just a gazillion stars in Google Maps. Thank god for Pin Drop saving the day! I have places tagged and easily accessible by theme. I use it daily. I just moved and I have easy access to grocery stores, lunch, al-anon meetings, and anything else I want. I am in charge of my GPS again. Thank You! It is WONDERFUL!
