ONE GLOBAL MAP, NOT JUST A SERIES OF SMALL MAPS, ONLINE OR OFFLINE
▸ With ForeverMap 2 orientation is no longer a problem. You don't need paper maps any more. No matter where you are, no matter what journey you are on, OpenStreetMap maps are available to you everywhere. You can decide, where you want to use it online or offline. Simply download as many complete countries as you wish (ideally via a WLAN) whenever you like.
Once installed you will always have them with you, even without an Internet connection, and you'll be able to use them fully. Including every city and city map. The map remains a single unit. You never have to jump backwards and forwards between lots of maps.
NO ADDITIONAL COSTS - NOT EVEN WHEN TRAVELING
▸ You don't incur additional charges in the app for flat rates, map packs or anything else. And of course, once the maps are installed you never have to worry about network quality or data reception. What's more, you avoid the high costs of data roaming when you are abroad.
FOREVERMAP 2 CONTAINS A COMPREHENSIVE TRAVEL GUIDE - AT NO EXTRA COST
▸ ForeverMap 2 does also contain a comprehensive travel guide, which provides you with interesting information on thousands of destinations around the world.
Naturally, this useful feature comes at no extra cost. Equally naturally, you can simply download the articles that are most interesting to you in order to have them available anywhere and at all times.

Simply type a little longer on the map in order to interact with individual locations on the map. You will never experience blurry displays or unnecessary blank map download frames.
What you'll get instead is a variety of map styles (e,g night, outdoor) and route planning for cars, pedestrians and cyclists (note: ForeverMap is not a navigation app). And there's something that you'll not find anywhere else: you can use all the functions both online and offline (in installed map areas).

The skobbler Team
When I plan a trip, I like to pin sites, attractions, restaurants, etc on a map which is not easy to do with forevermap. It s possible to add pins as favorites but it's one big list, not separated by city or type.
The favorites all show up as the same color star on the map with no labels or option to change the colors to make it easy to tell what the pin is at a glance.
Creating a list of favorites is a pain in the a**... The search always defaults to your current location instead of the location of the map you're working on so you have to manually change it back every time.
If you add your own pin that is not already on their list of attractions, ie a new restaurant that just opened recently, there is no way to change the name of the pin to make it easier to find on the master list of favorites.
Overall just a frustrating app to use for someone who travels frequently and wants to plan maps ahead of time. The only good thing about it is the ability to route from point a to point b without wifi.
Worked Great in Cuba for Me
While I wasn’t sure if it was legal for me to be using it there —car navigators like Tom Tom are not allowed to be brought into the country — ForeverMap worked great to get me around Havana and across Cuba without needing any 3G access. While it automatically scrolls the map as you drive, it wouldn’t rotate the map to keep the vertical orientation in line with the direction I was driving. Also, while it would tell me the total estimate trip time, it wouldn’t update the estimated time as I would get closer to the destination. It also could have used a night-colors mode. Perhaps it already does these things and I just couldn’t find how to use them.
Awesome! It really does the job.
I have tried several offline map apps and by far this is the best. It includes TripAdvisor and few other nice features. It was of a great help on my vacations driving through southern Spain.
It will be more awesome if you could keep offline trip advisor information when planning to go somewhere where there is no wifi.
