Maps.Me Offline Maps - Indie app of the day
What is Maps.Me Offline Maps?
Maps.Me Offline Maps is pretty much what the name says it is. It is a navigation app where the biggest feature is the ability to download maps for offline use whenever you want. There is a free trial version in the Google Play Store and a paid version for $4.99.
The app is pretty easy to use. You select your region and download the maps that you need. There is no time limit on how long they stay there so you’ll have them whenever you want. Maps.Me touts 100% offline use so aside from actually downloading the maps, you don’t actually need a web connection to use this and that’ll probably make a lot of people happy.
In the free version, you just have access to the maps and the GPS will show you where you are on them. In the Pro version, you’ll also gain the ability to create routes, offline search, auto-follow mode, and bookmarking. You really can’t go wrong either way but do remember that the free version is a trial and is appropriately bottlenecked.
