Great for Trails
Yes it's not Apple or Google maps. That's not the point. It has what they don't - trails, trails, and more trails. Where google shows nothing but a large white empty space Open shows me single track hiking/biking trails everywhere - even with their name! My local park maps don't even show some of these trails.

A good supplement
Apple's maps or Google's Maps are fine and dandy for driving from on place to another, but when it comes to looking up bike routes or trails they both tend to fail miserably. Openmaps still provides a nice way to view that sort of info.

Failed maps
Maps are actually fine quality, but you will never use it.. If you have a good Internet connection use Google maps. There is an absurd limit if you want to download some maps to use offline (do not pay for it!). Compass feature is not used here so that you will have troubles orienting on the map.

No good.
'Nough said. It's no good. Try it... The maps are terrible and take absolutely forever to load. They are grainy and show no local businesses.

Not bad if you use the right map source
This is a pretty decent app, IF YOU USE THE PROPER MAP SOURCE! What the description doesn't tell you is that there are other map sources available besides OSM. MapQuest is one of those other sources. The map data is OSM, but to me the rendering is much more attractive--and you can download all you want with no hassles. It's a very simple matter to go into "Settings" and change the source. The people who have written the negative reviews obviously did not read the disclaimer provided, which clearly warns of the restrictions when downloading directly from OSM servers. It's not a restriction from this app writer, it's a restriction imposed by the OpenStreetMap people. If you don't like it, go argue with them. But don't complain here if you can't read the instructions!
