**Voted 2nd Best distance mapping app for iPhone and iPad by apppicker

DistanceMap or DistanceMap HD is the best alternative to Planimeter


by John Sherman
$1.99 in the App Store

DistanceMap or DistanceMap HD is the best alternative to Planimeter. Cost stops it from rivaling the essential app. To get the app on both your iPad and iPhone it will cost you $5.99. Planimeter is an essential app for half the cost of that combo. The app includes many of the same features as Planimeter. The big benefit of this app is for boaters. The app actually works with nautical miles, which is helpful for those on the water. DistanceMap is a nice alternative to the essential app.
