Hey there!
It is good to know that work on the project is continuing.
New features are cool, but I have some suggestions.

First, it's not that obvious to have tools in right-click (or
long-press) menu, as well as having tools divided into 2 parts: tools that
are big green buttons and tools that are somewhere in hidden drop-down
menu. I think it's better to make some *visible *toolbar or visible
drop-down list to select a tool (like that map source selection list)

Also, the design is not very well suited for small screens. I've tried at
Android's Opera mobile (with 4" screen), and buttons and tip are way bigger
that standard UI elements, thay could be made smaller while still being
totally readable.

Thanks for the projectbtw, I hope it will become great useful tool.

PS
I somehow reached a "Get directions" feature, but did not understand how I
did it. Is it good?
