Description of App
Snag My Spot is an easy and simple way to save and share your favorite locations.
Your favorite spots could be a restaurant, your friend's home, or a boutique you like to shop. You can even snag the spot of your parked car. Save any spot that you would want to remember and visit again.
Snag allows you to organize your spots by tags and lets you provide a descriptive title. Additionally, you can add notes, a photo, email the spot to friends, retrieve directions, and view all near by spots.
This is a mostly accessible app, that could potentially be very useful to a blind user.
The first time that you run the app you are greeted by a screen that gives you a brief introduction to the app. Double tap to go to the main screen.
The top menu bar on this screen contains just two buttons. The first is labelled 'Radar' and when double tapped will open a map showing your current location. This map will also show map pins for any local locations that you have already added to this app. You can swipe through these map pins. Double tapping on any of these will activate a pop-up, from which you can access the detail page for that location.
The second button on the main screen top menu is labelled 'Snag'. Double tapping on this opens a new page where you can 'snag' your current location. The first item on this page is a title field. You can either type a name, or double tap on the button that follows this text field. The button is labelled '06 Magnifying Glass'. When double tapped it loads a page titled 'Nearby Places'. This appears to be places that have been 'snagged' by others. If the location you want to add is listed, you can double tap on it to have it used as the title field for your own location. When adding a new location you have the option to give it a tag. Simply double tap on the 'Tag It' button to bring up a list of available tags.
When you have given your location a title and a tag, simply double tap on the 'Snag My Spot' Button. You have now 'snagged' your current location.
A list of your snagged locations is shown on the app's main screen. It has 3 display options - Recent, Tags or A to Z.
There are 2 further buttons on the main screen. The first of these is labelled 'Bump'. You can use this to share 'snags' with another user of this app. I have not tested this feature, but it looks like you have to physically 'bump' your 2 devices to share the sang.
The final item on the main screen is an unlabelled button, which when double tapped will load an 'About' page.
Double tapping on an existing snag will load its details.This page shows the title of the snagged location followed by a map of the location. The top menu bar on this page has a 'back' button and a 'delete' button.
There are 4 buttons along the bottom of the snag detail page. The first, Action, allows you to share the location by email, by SMS, or by a 'bump'. The second button is labelled '117 todo'. This button open a page where you can add a text note to the location. The third button is labelled '86 camera', and is used to add a photo to the location details.
The fourth button on the bottom menu is labelled '103 map'. Double tapping on this will start the Map app (the one that comes with iOS). Although not as powerful as a dedicated GPS app, you can use this app to get directions to the the snagged location ((either by car, by bus or by walking). When in the map app, double tapping on the settings button (the last button on the screen) will give you access to a number of options, one of which is to have your directions shown as a list.
Although this is not a complete solution, it does provide a very quick and easy way to 'snag' your current location. And, if the Map app is enough for your mapping and direction needs, the 2 apps work well together.
