Best so far I have been looking for something like this for some time. Pls add features to share location and backup saved locations. Years of work will be lost if u loose your phone.

Ive noticed that it takes some time before a gps fix is obtained, can you fix this issue. It doesn't make sense to save a place if you have to wait forever before the current location is highlighted and the save key is revealed.

Developer Stopped Updating It It's good. As a suggestion I would say that please add a option to backup our saved places in a single file so that we can restore our saved places if something went wrong. Now I am using Share GPS Location as the developer stopped updating this app.

Good app. The only one of its kind. I'm sorry to see that the developer has abandoned it.
