    Really? 2010 Census? Many changes since then.

    I only took a star because they have so much potential! There's so much more that could be added!

    But needs some KitKat updates. The graphics overlap in places, slide out navigation would be nice, and the new Google Maps features need to be integrated (double tap+slide up/down to zoom out/in). Great idea, good execution.
