What's New in Version 1.4
* Currency Converter: India added
* Public Transport: Nuremberg added
Meh. Nothing special.
Except for offline maps, I already have all of the features contained in this app available in other apps that have more features and are more useful. For example, the xe currency converter app has many more world currencies and it's easier to use. In this app, you spend 10-20 seconds scrolling through a list of countries before finding out it doesn't even have the country you need. The offline maps would have been more useful if the maps were up to date. This did not even show some of the roads in my locality that have been here for more than two years (however, the built-in maps app and Google Earth do show them).
This is like a travel version of AppZilla: Many different features, but overall not great quality (and you won't use it if you already have better apps that you can directly access from your home screen). I don't think it's worth paying $1.99 for this. I have my doubts on whether it was even worth downloading when it was free. On well.
Offline Map Does Not Work!
The best part of this app is the offline maps. They do not work any longer. Do not buy it.
For a 5* app, I was expecting more precise information. The main reason for getting this was the currency conversion, which is set up great. HOWEVER, it hasn't been updated since May of 2011! That's not current, and I don't see a way to update it. There are some good things included in this app,such as the phrases in several languages, but not being updated really pushes my buttons.
