    "Distance matters"

    There's a feature Google Maps' missing. It had it for a long time on its desktop browser version and then shockingly removed it. I'm talking about manually draw routes on a map and calculate distances.

    Fortunately j4velin's Measure Maps has come up to bring it back. As a runner, I deeply appreciate it.

    Measure Maps integrates Google Maps "map" and "satellite" layers and allows you to tap any point on the map to start a route or area you want to measure. Thus, any new tap will link that point with the previous one with a straight line.

    Total distance / area is displayed and changes as you keep drawing. Tap the "trash bin" button to undo latest line.

    You can choose either to display distance / area in metric or imperial units. In addition, if you tap "units" from the left side menu, you can view a summary with different units. Zoom in/out and search cities by name.

    j4velin's Measure Maps is set in a minimalist interface. In fact, you don't need anything else to make the most of the app. However, I'm missing a more intuitive way to access the left-side menu. Maybe Holo-style layout with the three-bar top left corner button. Tapping the "distance box" isn't what I'd instinctively do to access it.

    Regardless, Measure Maps fulfills a need a good deal of users have.
