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!

Absolutely terrible
Ugly, complicated and nearly impossible to use. Search results make no sense, routing asks you to pay to unlock but is worthless. Feels more like a Linux tinkertoy project than a mapping app. There's actually a page of instructions that attempt to explain how to enter start and end points, but the instructions are impossible to follow and completely non-intuitive.

Wow, worse than the iOS 6 Maps app
So slow moving the map and search provides worse results than Apple's iOS 6 Maps app.

Not helpful for offline map use
The download quota is unreasonably small, and appears to be in the range of 6MB. I was hoping to download maps of a *single city* in preparation for international travel, but have been cut off. Appears to work fine for online use, but not for my desired purpose.

Terrible app
Don't use. I downloaded a map area of 5 square miles and it blocked me for "over usage" of the download map feature which you have to pay $1.99 for. Total and utter crap app.
