Venice Offline Street Map
By Networking 2.0
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This app allows you to browse street level map of Venice when you are traveling. You don't need to have internet connection for this to work as the map is stored on your iPhone or iPod Touch. Ideal for saving roaming charges or having to find the local wifi to access the built-in map application.
You can pinch to zoom in and out of the map just like you can with the built-in map application.
We are currently building and field testing support for GPS and this will be released as a free update soon. Stay tuned.

What's New in Version 4.0.0
* iOS 5 compatibility changes.
* Further bug fixes and improvements.
Interesting and Free
General, good information about surrounding islands, points of interest, airport and train stations. Not a full app but free and worth checking out. Maps need improvements if they are to be used to get around. At street detail level there are only a couple of street names.
Zoom Feature not Working
When I release my fingers after a zoom the display jumps to a less detailed view -- often much less, as in the whole city. Also, some street names disapear upon zooming. Seems pretty buggy.
Erratic and vague
If you can get this app to focus on the part of the city you're in, you will be hard-pressed to find the name of a street near you. This app is not worth the moments it takes to download it.
