Useless.
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 Slow, out of date, quirky interface.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

Cool interface, but bad search
The UI is fast & cool features. But I find the search is very bad. I tried searching for costco and found result on other coast!!! Tried few more searches but nothing worked. It's not practicle to use if I can not find nearby places!!! It's great effort & hope the app improves over time.

Map caching ++ ... but search ability lacking
I was thinking this would be mighty useful when I downloaded it, because of its map storage ability. Unfortunately how can it help me find places if I can't search for addresses? Open Maps also pales in comparison to Google maps in detail, and pin drops are not always identified with the correct location. I will wait for an update that will improve its capability, but for now it is of limited use to me.
