I'd like an app similar to google maps/earth with:

- zoomable satellite images and the user's GPS location,
- easily drop pins and label and share blinds, feeders, sightings, etc., and
- multiple users can share their locations.

A chat feature would be good, too. This may all be doable through google. I don't mind paying for the app or getting google earth pro if necessary, but does anyone have any experience with something like this? It would be especially helpful for guests and others not yet familiar with the property.

You can get google earth on your phone. Itís actually really nice. Doesnít have the most recent satellite overview. But if you pair it with your desktop work it helps you get a pretty good understanding of the terrain.

Scoutlook is popular. I'm a big google earth fan. And if you are hunting out west then OnX is the only way to go.
