  • By far, the best mobile GIS!

    By Giacometti.
    I have been using this app since 2013. It was my first mobile GIS app. Over time, I venture onto the other side of fence with virtually every other available mobile GIS app. Here’s what’s unique about GIS Kit: • Caches ortho-photo maps with a great number of choices • Allows easy customization for a particular project • You can have a number of projects, each remaining uniquely separate • Very reasonable cost, nothing’s hidden; you get the base program with all the bells and whistles for under $100 • I have not found an app anywhere, but here, that EXPORTS Shape files! (Pro version) Well worth the extra $$ if you need that functionality. Although there was a lag in updating this app and it tended to crash (frustrating), it was STILL worth the hassle! Not the team is back to raising the bar. They recently stabilized the crashing issue and are working on a major upgrade. Hands down, this is the best mobile GIS app available.
  • Scam

    This program is a scam, shuts down when u try and change back ground and no way to contact tech support for help or problem solving, stay away!

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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.
  • Still crashes all the time

    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

    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

    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.
