App reviews

Appendix: MAPS.ME | 169 rubles. | Universal App | Set

Do without mapping services in the modern world is quite difficult. With hometown, everything is clear: all the streets and places have long been studied – it is difficult to get lost. Moreover, many of us are even willing to help tourists. Another thing, when we are abroad: a new city, strangers. Without a map anywhere. Good service provides, for example, Google Maps , Apple chases them with their cards … That’s just almost all map services have one major drawback: it requires an Internet connection. In this case, for mobile roaming will pay heavily. Yes, and in the home network, you will spend on a decent share of the traffic card, if you do not have unlimited tariff, which is not so cheap.

Options permission from this, you can find two. The first – to surrender and pay flatrate or, even worse, in the mobile Internet roaming. Be sure that the check for the last will be a significant proportion of the total cost of the trip. And in the end you will certainly break the mood. Since our mobile operators are still using prehistoric rates that have nothing to do with the consumption of modern traffic on the Internet. The second option is much more interesting and easier – to use offline maps, which do not require an Internet connection, and thus have no effect on your wallet.


Of course, the application itself MAPS.ME, which is one of the best map services, available in the App Store for 169 rubles. But firstly, for the money roaming you just have time to download maps and find them to its location. Secondly, within the application, you will find maps for 345 countries and islands – map of the entire planet will be within your iOS-devices. Download any of the maps will be totally free, no additional domestic purchases here. Accordingly, paying for an application only once, you can use it always, at home and on the go.


As already mentioned, the cards work in offline mode, connect to the Internet, they do not require. Hence, they can be used in such remote locations where there is no mobile phone. Moreover, MAPS.ME will even work on the iPad, where there is no 3G or 4G. Another interesting fact is that the application is not just able to display maps in offline mode, but also to determine your location. Thus, you will always know where you are now, in a matter of seconds. And thanks to the mode Rotate the map will automatically rotate depending on the direction of your movement. It’s hard to imagine a more convenient option, agree.


Needless to say, the service can not be called complete if he could not carry out a search. MAPS.ME can look and makes it too without an Internet connection (like everything else, you will have already understood). Search for the right place for you is completely different ways: by street name, in the name of a specific location (for example, you need a certain store) category places that offer just the application (handy when you want to see the surrounding restaurants) and even the coordinates if they you know. You are sure to find exactly what you need, because the maps MAPS.ME contains millions of objects: shops, restaurants, gas stations, museums, stadiums, monuments and many other attractions.


Apparently, the application uses data OpenStreetMaps. Nothing wrong with this approach, of course not. Quite the contrary. Because of this, all the data collected by hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of others. Therefore card MAPS.ME consider not only the above location, but even the little things such as dirt roads in remote areas. I must admit that map services from Google and Apple to such an accuracy far. May, of course, in some cities they win in their detail, but in the whole world – definitely not. The maps are constantly updated, providing users with the most recent data applications. MAPS.ME cards can trust one hundred percent.


In addition, comfortable enough and that any place on the map, you can quickly save a bookmark. So you do not have to re-look for it, you can always come back to it in the “Bookmarks” – quickly and easily. Furthermore, the application MAPS.ME support import and export bookmarks, so you can add labels to the other card (supports KML and KMZ-files). Thus, even if you are actively using another service, switch to MAPS.ME be held for you discreetly and without any losses. Will only be solid pros. By the way, the label with any place on the map, you can quickly send an email or SMS (to the recipient immediately opened it on the map on your device).


MAPS.ME – one of the best and most convenient mapping services not only in the App Store, but also beyond. In addition to the App Store, the official app MAPS.ME available in seven stores on different platforms. Detailed maps pleasantly surprised, like all of their opportunities, ranging from search, ending the definition of the altitude and the speed of your movement). But most importantly – full-time job applications in offline mode. No longer have to worry about traffic and give the sum with several zero roaming charges, being abroad. The application is definitely worth the money. Trying MAPS.ME, you will likely ever will forget all the alternative mapping services.
