Editors' Review

Maps.Me features detailed offline maps for all countries, presenting them in an easy-to-use interface. This powerful app, which has been selected as one of the best Google Play apps this year, proves to be a great alternative to Google Maps and other similar interactive maps that require an Internet connection to work.

Pros

Awesome functionality: Maps.Me's free to download, openstreetmap.com-based maps contain almost as much detail as Google Maps, including restaurants, shops, ATMs, gas stations, and hospitals, but have the great advantage that they can be used entirely offline once they are downloaded, which means no more data roaming costs and no more connectivity issues. Features, such as routing with accurate directions and zooming in, work great offline.

Fluid interface: The interface moves smoothly, even when navigating big-city maps replete with points of interest. Zooming in and out is effortless, thanks to the right-hand side buttons. Hand gestures for navigations are swifter and more responsive than what you get from Internet-dependent mapping apps.

Easy map management: Maps are organized by continent; for each of them you get to see their size, so that you'll know how many MBs you have to download. Maps can be downloaded or removed with a tap, making their management quite facile, so long as you're connected to a stable Wi-Fi network.

Cons

Large map size can be a problem for some users: For a country like Italy or the Netherlands, the available maps weigh hundreds of MBs, making their download problematic for users who have a device with a small internal memory and no memory card. Compressing maps while keeping them detailed may not be possible, but perhaps future versions will let us download smaller city or regional maps depending on our needs.

No public transport data: Unlike Google Maps, Maps.Me features navigation only for pedestrians and drivers.

Bottom Line

With its remarkable ease of use and offline reliability, Maps.Me stands out as a spectacular app that is not only an excellent alternative to online-based maps, but also a great example of what talented developers can do to harness the power of the Android platform. Whether or not you're a world traveler, we recommend you grab this app, especially now that it's entirely free; even if you don't use it daily, it will save you when your connection fails.
