Look for another product
This atlas is so unpleasant to use that it masks the fact that it has some good content. In particular, every zoom in and out is badly broken,
Say you do a pinch and expand the image a certain amount. As soon as you let go, it leaps to a completely different zoom level. Often, it also shifts the image sideways a considerable amount, too. That means that what was at the center is now the wrong size (not the size to which you pinched it) and in the wrong position.
Given that nearly every other product can handle pinch in and out, I thought this would be the first thing they would fix. Instead months have passed and they do nothing. This speaks badly of their interest in the product.
I recommend strongly that you search the App Store for a good atlas. National G. is simply letting themselves fall by the wayside.
Not so good
Not impressive especially when zooming in or out. Not a good investment, look for better.
Rather easy to crash
