Help for World Tour for iOS

I updated my device and now I can't see the whole world!

Apple Maps don't zoom out as far as the old Google maps did. We've reported this issue to Apple, and hopefully it'll be fixed in a future update.

Can I rename places? Can I move them around?

Yes and yes!

To rename a place, go to its notes screen, then tap the Edit button in the top right corner and choose "Rename Place" from the menu that appears. To move a place, go to the main map and hold down your finger on its pin to pick it up, then drag it to where you want it to be.

Does World Tour work when I don't have Internet access?

Partially. World Tour can't look up new locations without an Internet connection, so you can't add new pins if you're disconnected. Existing pins will display fine, but you may have trouble seeing the map itself—it depends on which parts of the map happen to be saved on your device at the time. Writing notes, adding and deleting pictures, and renaming and deleting places can all be done without Internet access.

Can I import or export World Tour places?

Not yet, but we're looking into ways to change that!

Does World Tour work on the iPad?

Yes! World Tour is now a beautiful full-screen iPad app with all the features of the iPhone version. And it's universal, so you don't have to buy it twice!
