The HartfordGIS map wil perform much like your other smartphone map applications. You can zoom in and out of the map using the + & - buttons, or by using pinch-and-spread gestures. Sliding your finger accross the screen in any given direction will allow you to pan across the map.
You can search for specific information by tapping the magnifying glass in the lower left. The are settings to search by Owner, Parcel ID or Address. When searching by address, it you may get better results typing just the number and street name, rather than a full address—.i.e, "525 Main" instead of "525 Main Street".
When the small blue circle in the upper left is spinning, let it finish before sending another command. If the map fails to refresh select the three buttons in the lower right had corner of the screen and then select refresh map.
There are scale dependencies set in the map, so more features will be displayed the closer you zoom in. When you can see individual addresses, tap them and a small window will appear. Tapping this information bubble will provide you with more details on the property.
