Ratings and Reviews
What is this
OsmAnd maps was recommended by various blogs for use in Beijing as Google Maps is blocked in China. I downloaded the app and paid for a map of Beijing but I can’t find the map in the app! Can only see the option to open it when I un-install and re-install again, but even then I can’t find a single thing using the Place search. I’m not just talking a regular address, searching freaking TIANANMEN SQUARE returns zero results. Very frustrated and annoyed, waste of money and time :(
This might be a great app functionally but the poor user interface makes it hard to tell. It keeps telling me it’s recording a trip even when I try to stop, the red recording icon never goes away. These are simple basic UI tasks that have been around forever. App deleted.
there are some bugs in the latest version in iPhone 6
