Looking for an alternative to Google Maps? Yandex Maps is an app that's been especially created for a Russian audience that includes large amounts of information about the main cities of the world. All the key cities are present here, and the maps contain detailed information about the streets and most important places. It's an excellent alternative to Google Maps; you'll always be able to find your location wherever you are, especially if you're Russian.
The app works quickly. It has a search engine with which you can search for what you're looking for: cities, cafes, cinemas, roads...all you need to do is enter the information you want and tap the magnifying glass to find it in the map. In some places, you can consult real time traffic information and get a description of the most important places. Another interesting function is that it lets you define a start and end point and provides you with a route with directions on how to arrive.
The app, as mentioned, has been designed with a Russian public in mind, so you may find a lot of text in Russian. It doesn't distract too much from the quality and functions of the map, as most of it is in English anyway.
