I'd love to see Gaia develop a quick distance measure feature. Sample use cases include: There is a storm on that ridge, how far away is it, What's the sright line distance between those two lakes, etc. I've seen several apps successfully implement this functionality. In my opinion, the most elegant is the expandable two finger "rubber band" method used by the aviation app Foreflight. Additionally, the weather app, RadarScope, takes a different approach and lets you expand a circle radius from your current location (useful for how far away is that lighting strike). This is useful but only measures distance from your current location.
I'm a huge fan of Gaia and appreciate the incremental improvements that continue to add value!
