Electronic Pushpin Map

    Internet permission is required for the map overlay.
    People often use a geographic map and mark off countries they've visited with a pushpin. Besides places visited, there are also countless reasons to mark off locations on a map: U.S. states you've vacationed in, countries you've played an online game against, etc. This is a mobile, electronic implementation of this map.

    There are a few key points.
    1. You can name your map whatever you want, i.e. Vacationed, Apps, Games, etc.
    2. Your map must take on one of two types: States in the USA or Countries of the World.
    3. You can "insert" a red, blue, or green pushpin in your designated locations.
    4. You can create any number of these maps.

    In other words, you can create a "Vacationed" map of type "Countries of the World." Then, you can insert a green pushpin for countries you've already vacationed in and a red pushpin for countries you want to visit. You can also create another map called "Road Trip" of type "States in the USA." Then, for this map, you can insert a red pushpin for states you've driven through. This implementation is fairly flexible. Hopefully you can come up with some of your own use cases!

    It should be fairly self-explanatory to use. The only tricky part is that you must long-click your location in order to set the pin. A simple short click does nothing.

    If you have any comments, suggestions, or issues, please contact me at Otherwise, in return for making this app free of cost and free of ads, I'd really appreciate some positive feedback on the Google Play store. Thanks!

    Can't open any map I created; goes right back to main menu. Zero stars.

    This app is very limiting. It would be great if you could pin cities not just countries. It's also very annoying that it brings you back to the menu after pinning one country.

    My wish list to make this app what I hoped it was: -one more pin color -ability to add multiple pins to a state, or segment by area -ability to label your pins -ideally being able to add a pin by touching a spot on the map Otherwise, might be ok for otgers but not me

    Disclaimer: I am the developer. The app worked perfectly for me. I played the "License Plate" game during a recent road trip, and I saw 45 of the 50 state plates. Ilene - sorry for the confusion, but the app only supported pin insertion through the "Edit" button. I tried to clarify by changing its name to "Insert Pin" now. Hope this helps!
