Finally an Android device version! Few design flaws but overall, nice and simple! Most important, better handle brand problem to gain higher credibility. Prices are reasonable. This will be a amazing application for canvases creation.
Very excited about this product. Slight learning curve with the application as it didn't recognize all of my image folders at first so I had to do some image management manually before I could select photos. Want there was a volume discount as I have 31 canvases selected but can't bring myself to all of them and I'm having problem deciding between them all.
After watching the advert u wanted to create 3 canvases using one image in the advert it clearly shows you can do this and shows you can edit how you wish the canvas to be when you the application it isn't possible. I'm not even sure the application in the video is the this one.
Potential The concept is amazing (integrate Google maps and mgrs) and has a demand for sure. It needs to add long press at any point on the map to obtain the ten digit mgrs grid for there. At the moment it only presents the grid for your current zone or your waypoints
A Brilliant, Highly Functional, Application This application is exactly what everyone in the military/who is involved in orienteering could ask for: a easy interface, the ability to save way-points, and best of all, a MGRS widget. Highly recommended--and at an exceptional price. Looking forward to updates!
Worth the price! Awesome App! Downloaded this application while out in the field as a member of the U.S. Troops and it was awesome to allow my leaders know my zone on a constant basis. I would and have already recommended this application to several soldiers who have used it with the same result that I have. Amazing job guys!!
A amazing app, definitely one of the better ones out there. What it needs is offline maps for rural navigation as well as the ability to make and save waypoints. When navigating to a waypoint you should be able to see bearing and distance to the waypoint as well. Being able to view info about your trip like avg. speed, max speed and distance travelled would be nice too. Tick these boxes and I'd give 5 stars.
Use this for my job everyday. Exactly what I was looking for. Only thing I would like to see is a method to name dropped pins and select from a list EDIT: I want my saved pins wouldn't obtain wiped with each update. I usually have nearly 100 pins for my job and it is frustrating to begin the application and not have my pins anymore
Share menu I purchased the gridnav application thinking it would fix the share problem. It has not. Using a samsung galaxy note3 when the share menu is brought up it is in a zoom view mode. You can not resize the view nor use a left or right swipe to adjust the view point on tbe begin window. End result, I can not use the share zone function.
Life hasn't always been simple for 15-year-old Toby. Her mother died by suicide five years ago, and her father is not in the picture having abandoned her mother when she was pregnant.When the book opens, Toby is living on a dairy farm with her grandparents. Struggling to search any light in her world, she’s making plans to follow a related route as her mother. But her plans are suddenly interrupted when she’s told that her estranged father is returning home. Oh, and that he’s gay, and a popular female is novel broke my heart, and I mean that in the best method possible. Francis tackles some massive and difficult topics, but deftly handles the responsibility that comes with writing about suicide and depression—he writes with care, compassion, and e characters are well-developed and each provide a various view of Toby. As far as she is concerned, there is just enough pathos without the reader feeling sorry for her, instead they are pulling for her and don't wish her to create the same choice as her mother.With Francis' signature wit, Break in Case of Emergency is a vulnerable story about a non-traditional father and daughter relationship, and a young girl reconciling with herself. I highly recommend!
***TRIGGER WARNING***Suicide, depression, mental illness, parental abandonmentDespite it being a special and interesting story idea, this was beautiful average to me. This was another instances where an author tries to place too a lot of plot lines into one story. The depression and suicide talk really had nothing to do with her long lost dad. Even after her father comes into her life, she still goes through with her plan—his presence doesn't stop her. I also think it all was wrapped up beautiful quickly, especially for the severity of the situation.I truly think that if the two storylines were separate stories, then they would be really strong. The writing was impactful, even funny at times and could have been developed more. I would have liked to learn more about the mother's mental illness. It was kept kind of vague, but that could have also been because of the time period—late 80's/ early 90's. However, if it was its own story, you could place it during any time period and nothing would have been affected.If the plot about her dad was done as its own book, it would be a amazing special story that especially reflected the time period. Those scenes were definitely humorous but still held a lot of emotion and dramatic moments—a amazing pitch for a C was provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
Brian Francis’ fresh book may be categorized as YA but there’s nothing YA about how he weaves this raw story of identity, self worth and forgiveness. By turns funny and heartrending, we follow misfit teen, Toby Goodman, as she struggles with alienation, grief, and loss during those poor high school years that none of us escape unharmed. Her life is turned upside-down by the unexpected return of the prodigal father who sashays onto the stage in the form of a drag queen with a personality method too huge for this parochial little town. Hilarity ensues with Francis’ usual deft touch that pushes these characters through their suffocating biases to glimpse at bigger truths. Did I mention it’s funny? But don’t read on an empty stomach, the numerous dinner scenes had me craving old fashioned Sunday roasts.
I received an advanced copy of Break in Case of Emergency through Netgalley, so that I could share my review with you!Trigger Warnings: This book heavily with suicide and depression, along with feelings of parental by Goodman has not been given the easiest go at life.

Toby is just about to take the final step, and end her life, when her grandparents obtain a phone call from her long missing father. Her curiosity towards him is fought by her desire to protect herself from a man who couldn’t even be bothered to attend her mother’s funeral. Toby soon finds out that her grandparents haven’t exactly told her everything about her father, though. He is a female impersonator, who travels across the globe on tours, and who is coming here whether Toby wants him or can obtain your copy of Break in Case of Emergency now from HarperCollins!Brian Francis has written a heartfelt and poignant novel that explores themes of identity, loss, and depression. Above all, this book also talks about recovery, and learning to accept yourself with all of the amazing and poor things that may have been in your past. This book is a rather massive read emotionally, and should be given time and consideration before you start to read Toby’s Recommendation-If you are looking for an extremely special book dealing with hard-hitting emotional topics, Break in Case of Emergency could be a amazing pick for your next read! I couldn’t place this book down, because I was deeply worried about what the characters were going through and what would happen next!
[I received an electronic review copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.]Dark and sad, but also good. I was heartbroken for Toby - her depression, her suicidal plans, and her early recovery. This brought me to tears multiple times. I want there had been more discussion of some treatment for Toby, but the mental illness pieces of this were well-told. (Language, sex, LGBTQ+) TW: Suicide and depression
Break in Case of Emergency is a contemporary tale of 15 year old Toby who is dealing with her mother's suicide 5 years ago. She is struggling, especially when her father comes into the picture for the first time since her conception. Her father is... interesting... and isn't what she was expecting - or wanting.I did not love the LGBTQIA representation or mental health representation. I understand it was done with an explicit purpose, but I don't feel like they were represented properly. I feel it was meant to bring attention to depression and suicidality along with a country town's aversions to the LGBTQIA population (it's also set in 1992), but I feel that it misses the tag on both cases. Toby's mental health journey is a main plot point, but it's like it's set up so well and then just falls flat 2/3 of the method through and is finished too quickly.I felt confused by this book a lot of the time, and I feel it just wasn't my style. I didn't connect with the characters, but I did like the use of flashbacks to show information. I felt that was done very well and provided required context to what Toby was going through at any given point.
I'm on a sad book kick lately, but I liked the hope this had. Toby hasn't had the easiest life growing up, her mother was schizophrenic and killed herself when Toby was young. She's never known her father and is tired of living, so she makes a plan to slay herself when her estranged father comes into her life. At first, it seems like meeting him isn't a amazing thing, he's irresponsible and mean, but as they obtain to know each other a bond by was a bit difficult for me to understand, but the hopelessness she felt was heartbreaking and I'm satisfied she came to realize she has a help system and could talk about her feelings. The dark thoughts created this a small tough to read, but it's necessary to have books like these and the light at the end of the tunnel created me ank you to NetGalley and Inyard Press for the copy in exchange for an honest review
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest is is a story about healing broken relationships and overcoming family hardships. My heart broke for Toby so a lot of times while reading this! She was fairly doomed from the start, given her family history and feelings of abandonment from both parents. She never felt amazing enough and I spent the entire book worrying about her well-being. Her hero was brilliantly written, and I honestly was in tears beautiful early on. She was relatable on so a lot of levels. There were some themes and scenes that are too mature for my (upper elementary) students, but this will definitely be a 5 star review on Goodreads and I'll be recommending it to friends!
