Stop and think. When do you need mapping apps the most? When you are travelling. That's right. And.. What's one of the main problems when you go abroad? Roaming fares and difficulty to access mobile data network. There's an obvious solution here, isn't it? Offline Maps!
elderorb's Offline Maps is a mapping app which allows you to check streets, local venues and touristic places while both offline and online. Of course, when you are online you can automatically jump to your current location. That's the only feature you can only perform online. The rest of features are available when you don't have access to a WiFi hotspot or data network connection.
Thus, you can navigate through maps, download, update and delete them. You can actually download much more info including search data and map tiles. You can set pins around, fav them and check its coordinates. You can also search for specific places by name, type, address, tag or objects positions. Show and hide touristic and wiki places.
Although Offline Maps needs a design revamping and some extra features such a more detailed venue info, routes and directions and a social layer, it's still a good mapping app that fulfills a basic need: have handy maps when there's no access to a Internet connection.
