Smart Maps was ranked:
#1 Paid App in Romania
#2 Paid App in Ireland, New Zealand and Czech Republic
★ OFFLINE MAP
No Internet connection required. The entire app was designed with the concept that it should work offline, without the need for Internet.
★ REAL-TIME GPS TRACKING
Smart Maps tracks your position and updates it on the map in real-time. GPS tracking requires a device with GPS (iPhone or iPad 3G). If you have an iPod or iPad without GPS, you will need a WiFi connection to determine your location.
★ OFFLINE GUIDE
Browse through sights, museums, restaurants, shops, hotels, parks, railway & subway stations and more. Finding the point of interest closest to you is a tap away.

Smart Maps works just as good on an iPad as it does on an iPhone or an iPod. If you don't have an iPad you should buy one just to see how amazing Smart Maps are looking on this device :)
★ DISCOVER PLACES AROUND YOU
Smart Maps will scan an area of 1 km around your location and it will display the points of interest within that area. It's a very convenient way to discover a new city or to find out new locations in your home town. The classic gesture - "Pull down to refresh" - makes this feature a pleasure to use.
★ OFFLINE SEARCH
As you begin to type, a list with the proposed results will appear. You can search for streets, landmarks, parks, attractions, museums and much more!
★ RETINA GRAPHICS
Looks great on devices with Retina display.
See the direction you're heading (available only if your device has compass support).
Want to keep the screen always lit? There's an option within the app for that.

Unlike other offline apps, Smart Maps covers a very large city area. We recommend using iTunes or a reliable WiFi connection when installing, due to the large app's size.

What's New in Version 2.7
iOS 7 compatibility
Needs serious update
The best thing about this map is the "nearby" button, which seems to bring up a very comprehensive list of nearby restaurants, schools, and so on. The problem is you can't filter it. So if you are looking for the nearest movie theater you will have to scroll through a list including the nearest library, fire station and so on. Also, the graphic for my immediate location where I live is wonky, not accurate, and completely unlike on any other map. It represents my apartment building and three other buildings and a nearby park all as one odd shaped area of green!
Also you can not zoom in close enough for my taste. Finally the calibration screen keeps popping up and I have to keep tilting my iPad to calibrate. Seven times in five minutes! What the heck is going on.
So So - Not For Serious Users
Not enough street detail. Missing street names. Missing street directions on one way streets. Confusing and ambiguous graphics for some street patterns.
POS app...do not buy.....high school quality....no street/address search feature, what's the point? Poster child for what's wrong with App Store: quality (none) control.
