"This is extremely useful [...] If you are not impressed yet, you should be." appadvice.com

OffMaps 2 allows you to access searchable maps, your position and bookmarks wherever you are, even offline and abroad. OffMaps stores maps directly on your device and lets you search the map offline.

Save data roaming charges abroad with your iPhone or turn your iPod into a fully featured travel guide.

2 maps are included for free, additional maps can be purchased at 0.99$ for 3 downloads (0.33$ per map) or get the lifetime flatrate and load as many maps as you like. Map updates are free.


Offline maps with search

Maps are rendered on device allowing fast downloads and crisp display. OffMaps uses up-to-date crowd-sourced OpenStreetMap (the Wikipedia of maps) that offer a lot of useful information beyond simple roadmaps from ATMs and bus stops to restaurants and bars. Two maps are included for free, more maps can be purchased from within the app.


Wikipedia Articles with images offline

The ideal travel guide: see wikipedia entries on the map and read everything about the Eiffel Tour, Capitol Hill or Brandenburg Gate. No printed guide offers that information about your destination.

toptable restaurant recommendations

Discover restaurant menus and recommendations by toptable - offline - and reserve a table directly from OffMaps.

Seemingly useless

I can download google maps offline for free. This doesn't seem to add anything better and I was hoping for excellent transit capabilities, which this doesn't seem to have. Hoping it "seems" better once I arrive in the cities I downloaded. I had planned on lifetime access, but it seems really unlikely at this point. $0.99 already feels like a huge waste for this.

Promising, but not-yet-realized potential

This app exhibits enormous potential, but it's more of a public beta than a finished product. Aspects are remarkably polished, but gaping holes in the content and presentation quickly become evident. (I'm basing this review on the London and Paris maps, which should be amongst the most refined.) Some examples: most landmarks on the map such as park names are missing or hard to find/read; icons for restaurants, lodging and bus stops are un-labled and cannot be tapped for more information; you can add your own pins (bookmarks) but the app stops displaying them (infuriating), so there's no way to set up a bunch of weigh-points in a city and see them all at the same time and their respective relationships in order to plan a tourist day; the subway and bus map overlays are downright hilarious because none of the stops are actually labeled (!). The guide feature is pretty cool, however, once you begin to dig into it, and the ability for the app to cache a library of wikipedia articles about the city is killer.

In short, this app is worth watching, and you might be able to wring some value out of it in its current form, but prepare to be frustrated. Hopefully the developer will aggressively refine it.

p.s. I did not want to assign a star rating to this app in its current form, because none of the choices are even remotely appropriate: there's no choice that is fair to the developer or the customers.
