1.0 out of 5 stars Pathetic, 4 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I will not compare this app to google maps unlike other commentors and will just try and give my honest opinion. Maps themselves are very poor. Downloading region around a specific town in the UK is nearly impossible jnless you download entore countu or nearest big city that happens to include hour area.
Once you do download the map, its quality is beyond poor. Maximum zoom level of the map doesnt show most small streets. And the ones you do see are not labeled. Map tiles dont merge well leaving jagged edges and broken text. Roads disappearing into nowhere until you change zoom level and even then half are not there.
I am not surprised this app is popular on Apple devices. Considering it has to compete woth Apple maps, I guess a mapping app that shows only some streets is better than a mapping app that shows all streets but in the wrong place.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great book, bad DRM limitation, 26 Nov 2010
This is a great selection of Nietzsche works.
However, I find the Kindle edition to be marred by an abysmal DRM limitation - the clipping limit is set at zero. Meaning you cannot clip any portion of this book nor share it via Kindle's corresponding features onto social networking sites.
For Nietzsche's writings, I find that to be unacceptable.

My review rating of 3 refers to the digital copy quality only and not to the literary content, which is surely deserving of a solid 5/5.

If you have a choice - get this book from another digital store. Clipping limit of 0% on THIS book is an atrocity.
