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.

This is a useless program. I've been using the free Nokia maps on my phone for years. Slow, out of date, quirky interface. Whatever. They are certainly good enough. Open maps, however, is pointless. When I'm standing in Durham, NC--and it knows that I'm in Durham, NC, the search function does not weight Durham NC as any more likely to be where I want to go than Durham- ENGLAND. So, if I enter 504 Main St, Durham--it may bloody well send me around the world. Also, you have to know who to search. Are you looking for Lake Placid Village or Onchiota Hamlet or Durham Town? If you don't know which word to use, then you can't find it. FInally, maps only stay in the cache for 7 days. I want 2gbs worth of maps on me at all times. I don't mind the space, I just want portable maps for my device that don't require net access.

Almost perfect
Downloadable offline maps is perfect for those without service or wifi. Location search is needed and accidentally remove pins too easy just trying to deselect them. But overall excellent. Fried every other map Prog and gps maps and this is the winner. It just needs what google has and visa versa. Sometimes seems offline maps don't show so sorta iffy there but was free and believe still is so why people complain. It's better than $10 gps apps I've bought since they don't work if you don't have cel service. The app does need a way to notify about errors in maps. I notice lately seems my house is area 51 since it's recently been removed from all map sites and the roads are wrong. So be nice to have that added
