« How's it Work? »
Just select the cities, regions, or even whole countries you want to download, and it will be available for offline use, complete with information on thousands of POIs (Points of Interest), and travel guides and Wikipedia articles.
To do this we utilize community driven open data from a number of amazing projects: openstreetmap.org, naturalearthdata.com, wikivoyage.org, and wikipedia.org. We use some magik to compress and package it in a format optimized for mobile devices. Pocket Earth then renders its beautiful vector maps on your device using our OpenGL ES based MagikMap technology. So unlike other map apps which only download pre-rendered images (map tiles), our maps are only a fraction of the size, and you can better control the appearance of the map with different style sheets, data sources, and map layers.
To learn more about Pocket Earth or the community driven open data sources that we use, please visit our website.
Don’t forget this:
1. Using the GPS features of this app can significantly affect battery life. Only leave GPS enabled when you need to use it.
2. This app uses data from the amazing community driven open mapping project called openstreetmap.org! Coverage detail may vary by region, please visit our website to check the map detail for your regions of interest.
3. Does not currently support all asian texts on the map (Chinese, Japanese, etc).
What's New in Version 2.5

Can't really be used offline
I thought this would be the solution for getting around while out of the country without paying foreign data rates. It's not. You can't do something as basic as get a route to a landmark without being online. I was left clumsily trying to drive while repeatedly looking down at my screen to see where on the map I am since I couldn't plan a route or get turn by turn directions without being online even though the full map had been downloaded to my phone. I don't see the point of this if it can't give you directions without being online.
okay, they only give you one free city offline (can use online everywhere), but the pro upgrade is cheap and worth every penny. if you're like me and have tried a lot of different offline map apps, you will be sold quickly on this one! its incredibly fast, great detail, and lots of extra features the other apps don't have.
I am an airline pilot and use it for illustrations quite frequently, worldwide.
