Map Reviews: 3/5 Stars

Though this map is very informative and useful, especially to those Manchester fans, it is not user-friendly enough in following aspects:

  • Cannot pan the map. Though sometimes a hint will be popped up and said we can pan the map by “press, hold, and then pan”, I could never pan the map as I could only draw a rectangle all the time.
  • Lack of a map legend for indicating the meanings of various colored dots.
  • External links, videos or photos can be inserted to the popup boxes for detailed information.
