Oxford Offline Street Map
By Networking 2.0
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This app allows you to browse street level map of Oxford when you are traveling. You don't need to have internet connection for this to work as the map is stored on your iPhone or iPod Touch. Ideal for saving roaming charges or having to find the local wifi to access the built-in map application.
You can pinch to zoom in and out of the map just like you can with the built-in map application.
We are currently building and field testing support for GPS and this will be released as a free update soon. Stay tuned.

What's New in Version 4.0.0
* iOS 5 compatibility changes.
* Further bug fixes and improvements.
This is just a low resolution map image with no street names. Zooming in just gives you a grainier version of the map -- and that's if it loads, and mostly I got buts of map and blanks. There are ads (as you might expect; 2.79 to turn them off); location services has to be turned on permanently (even when not using the app) if you want to locate yourself. I didn't try it. I got a better result taking a photo of my old Oxford A-Z. Seriously, don't even bother. Google maps is free, and if you load your town before you leave your wifi it will do more than this app does.
Low quality map
Good idea but unfortunately the map detail is very poor and provides little detail when zoomed in.
