Not quite there
Was looking for an easy way to have map data for iPod touch when not wifi connected. Good tool, but does not allow an easy way to download a large area of maps. I had to continually select the largest download area and reposition. Not quite what I was hoping for. Almost, but hopefully a fix will come to easily download large areas at multiple zoom levels... Not ready for prime time.

Must have application.
I took this to Europe and I used it all the time - I didn't have to pay those outrageous data roaming fees just to know where I was. (be sure to download your maps before you go - watch the video to find out how). Last weekend I took it along to a new town on the coast. When I lost cell signal google maps was useless but openmaps worked great. Nice to see lots of new features and steady improvement!

Unusable offline mode
The main reason to have this app is to be able to download maps and use them with no interactions with the internet. There is a setting called Offline Mode. However, once it is selected (set to ON), the app becomes unusable - any operation on the map displays a message "Error Loading Geotweets". The message obstructs the map.

Works partially
Search is useless, but map caching works well sometimes. Can't rely on it. An instruction web site would be good! The update map feature is broken. The 'mail url' feature is broken.

Does the job...hoping for updates
It's a great app if you want to see your postion on the openstreetmap as you drive (or walk or bike). Skobbler has a much better design and display of the map but only works with routing...it won't simply let you scroll through the map or track as you drive without a route going. Another feature I'd like is tracking. There are apps that display the osm map and there are gps tracking apps (for uploading your trace in order to use it to edit the map later) but no app does both! Let's fine tune this baby and add some features and we'll have a 5 star app here.

Not work as it stated
I researched for a downloadable map for my europe trip. I took the word of this app producer. It indeed could down load the map to my system. BUT, when came to real test, it dose not work without data roaming plan. I have to use data roaming that made it work. If so, why i need this app at first place? No map is better than google map except no downloadable map. It also has no turn by turn function without subscription. It's a joke. I spend money for nothing but a ad app solicited for subscription. I never know that apple will allow such app put on their store to grab money. I over trusted apple, and thought that they won't allow any garbish put on. This is a new invented FISHING trick. This type of apps will turn people away. At least I will not buy any app if I could't test it first. Apple's name is always means highest quality. Such app will make a dent on it's name.
