Download maps over wifi so you'll have them offline whenever you need them
MAPS.ME — world offline maps is just what it sounds like. Access the world map automatically, and download detailed maps of specific countries as you need them.
One of the issues with the maps app that comes automatically installed on your device is that it gets confused whenever it doesn't have access to 3G or wifi. This app solves that, since you can download a detailed look at any country before you go. It even includes locations of interest, including restaurants, hotels, and shops. It makes use of your device's GPS to locate you on the map, too. Although you won't be able to call up directions like with other apps, it's still far superior to the antiquated paper versions that never fold back up like they should.
Note that you'll need to upgrade to the pro version of the app to get access to the bookmarking and search features.

We continue perfecting the interface:
* The tool bar on the main screen is now transparent. Now there is more space for the map.
* A higher-contrast interface. The place preview background has changed from green to white, and the text has become easier to read, especially in sunny weather ;-)
Help is available in the app. Detailed instructions and FAQ are in the Settings & More section.
Enjoy your travels!
Very useful offline option
Stuck in Germany with a broken satnav this app probably saved my life. Map is very detailed and clear and even has waypoints for restaurants etc.
good for travel
Poor Japan map
Does no open anymore. I have hard reset my android phone, installed again and nothing. This is happening already since some updates ago. Each update, a new hope. Now I give up. Please solve it or give my money back, the app became useless!
Accurate and very efficient to use!
Would not zoom beyond 10miles, took 20 mins to open from sd card. Completely unusable. (Why has this comment been hidden? )
