What's New in Version 1.21
"get directions" bug fixed
Best istanbul app out there
Offline maps with gps tracker (without roaming) is worth the money alone. Not to mention the excellent content - you won't be sorry that you purchased this one- it's our go to guide in istanbul!
Update--- new map interface works even better! Love macs maps!
The nearby feature doesn't work at all
The nearby feature doesn't work at all. It very difficult to find places around you .
You have to go through each review to search for a place which is near you from the address . It's difficult to do for tourists .
The reviews are available online in any case . So it's a waste of 5 dollars without the location features .
