July Product Update

(We neglected to post this in July) Hello Mappers, Hope your summer (or winter for those in the southern hemisphere) is off to a fantastic start.  Exciting times here at mapalist ! We’ve been busy jumping into our admittedly aging code base, rolling out new features, and thinking about what’s on the horizon.

Thank you to our current subscribers for both your

Rinse and repeat for as many images you desire. In other release related news, we’ve updated the account page with tabs making it easier to navigate. On that same page ( on the billing tab
