    Hi Lukas! My goal was to design an app that really excelled at this specific use case in terms of UX. I've used Google My Maps but I found it more of a desktop power tool, rather than a simple, fast, mobile-first kind of experience. To me, on iOS, My Maps feels shoehorned into the flagship Google Maps app.

    If you try Relay I think you'll be surprised at how much better the whole experience is! I spent a long time designing and optimizing the UI ;)

      That makes sense and I congratulate you on your new app. In no way do I want you to think that my comment is questioning the quality of your app. As a product owner & designer myself I believe its very important to help others by sharing a different and honest perspective. Especially if it helps owners of the product realize earlier that their investment of time and money is a high risk investment. I've been there myself and would have hoped someone would have asked me tough questions early in the product life cycle. I know that if someone gave me honest feedback early it might have saved me time and money over the years.

      As for Google's Map App: I personally find the UX of Google Maps just enough to fit my needs when traveling, this applies to me only as I haven't done research to learn about others.

      Best of luck with the app, it looks great! I will be sure to try it sometime.
