700 City Maps for you to choose from!

All offline map databases refreshed on March 28, 2013

Do you feel online Google Maps is too slow showing you the map? Do you want an easy way to mark and remember where you are? Do you need a list of streets where you are? You don’t want to carry around a big unwieldy paper map? Tired of having the paper map blown to pieces by the wind every time you try to figure out where you are and where you need to go?

The mobile streetmaps are for you! All the map data is loaded on your iPhone or iPad before you leave your home, so can you be on the streets, offline, and still know everything about the area you are in, and locate yourself or any street in the city. You don’t need any network connection at all once the application is installed on your iPhone – no WiFi, no 3G, no GPRS!

You can choose from more than 700 maps to download. All the data for each map is stored on your iPhone or iPad, so it works where you have no access to the Internet - it works where Google Maps is inaccessible. This prevents expensive data roaming charges by loading all the map data to your iPhone or iPad before you leave home. You can turn off all network functions and still be able to find your way around. Lets you find all streets, and many useful locations such as ATM's, parkings, museums, and many others. Remembers where you've been so you can find that parking spot where you left your rental car, or that great restaurant. Allows you to mark interesting locations to visit in advance.

To make sure your phone doesn't use any expensive data on your trip, go to Settings, then General, tap on Network, and slide the Data Roaming to "off". Note: GPS functions work on the iPhone iPad 3G only, the iPod and WiFi iPad use "assisted GPS" based on nearby WiFi networks, and often know roughly where you are, but they are not as precise as GPS equipped iPhones and iPads.

We have all the major cities and tourist destinations like Paris, Rome, London, New York, Amsterdam, Bali, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Tokyo, Sydney, Venice, Barcelona, Malta, and many others, up to and including small places like Aix-en-Provence, Allentown Pennsylvania, Williamsburg Virginia, Surfers Paradise, and national parks like Yellowstone, Shenandoah, and many others. We're constantly expanding the list, and if we currently don't have the one you're looking for, tell us!

For a full list of available maps, please visit our website!

Please note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

  • Interesting App

    by Billy Cal

    Individual maps are a little pricey at $3.00, but the app works well and the list of available maps is extensive.

  • Update: problem resolved quickly

    by Dc traveler gal

    This is an update on my previous review noting that app features didn't work. I've contacted the company and they responded within minutes. I was allowed to re- load the app, and no longer experienced the issue. Great service!

  • Great App

    by Earhart3

    I have used the app in Europe and loved it because you do not incur data charges as you do with the map app on the phone. I have had difficulties downloading, but with patience and a few restarts I downloaded some big maps - like London.

  • Waste of time

    by Fhjutrsdg

    Hardly any info. Why asking to buy all these maps? Waste of time and space. Deleted the app. Would not recommend.

  • this is crap

    by ,jvhsudgvbuygcvu

    will give you the right street in the wrong town! poor navigation!

  • Crashed

    by Surf gramps

    This app crashed my iPhone 4, iOS 7

  • Lake placid ny

    by Frank.m.523

    Don't waste your 2.99. USELESS.

  • Garbage...avoid

    by pauloantonio

    App is free but maps are overpriced. App is unreliable,...drops map sections on zoom and does not zoom in enough. Avoid and look at other options...

  • Over priced

    by masterita2

    App is free but maps are not. Over priced for the $3 charge. You are better off taking free screen shots of the city map from google or yahoo maps and viewing them from your photo album later.

  • Slow

    by Kasinda

    Very slow. Not free. Have to buy each city.

  • slow

    by farfadet12

    - price is unreasonable: $3.00 or so for each city, small or big - besides that, it's slow and unreliable

  • DON'T BUY!!!

    by orsay410

    Terrible.. no access to maps without buying ..something.. There are NO links to even purchase a map.. DELETED!!!!!!!

  • Useless

    by Fad8

    I purchased the map of kuwait and it is not working !!

  • Bad Deal

    by William Trimble

    Purchased map of San Francisco when I installed app on my iPad. App appears on my iPhone too thanks to the cloud. But to use it I must purchase the San Francisco map again. I will seek another app or just use Apple Maps or my trustworthy and free Google map.

  • Save your money

    by Rufaroz

    I downloaded this app for my iPad and bought the map for Bologna, Italy, where I will be traveling later this month. I figured $2.99 isn't bad for a decent off-line map. Problem is, it is NOT a decent map. I don't know how it does if you tell it to 'find me,' as the point of this map is for use when you are not on-line, but its index is almost useless. There was no way to find the train station, for example, without knowing its location (I tried looking up variations on train, station, terminus and travel in English and Italian. Ended up finding it by following the pix of train tracks). It will find a street, but not an address on the street. A paper map is WAY more useful.

  • Crap! Look at stars?! Shame on iTunes!!

    by Sally Kuperman

    Shame on apple for saying on first look the average rating is 3 stars!! 16 of last 18 are 1's because it either won't work or when it does you pay and pay!

  • Missleading

    by PhoneHax

    This is not "free" as it states

  • Misleading

    by Simonfeesh

    No where in the description is it mentioned each map is $2.99. Not even one demo map to see how this works. Not about to head off on holiday with out at least testing the app. 1 star because I have no idea how it performs.

  • Rip-off

    by kornolio

    Maps are 2.99 each... Dont waste your time.

  • Every map I tried was $2.99

    by appletaxi

    The actual maps are $2.99 (plus tax) each……and they are not even that good!! Another app I've deleted.gfggg

  • Just paid $2.99 for map of Venice without street names

  • bull$&(/

    by reichephsuperfan

    this app is a complete scam. just loaded one empty screen and nothing more. deleted immediately.

  • Call it ZERO City Maps!

    by pewhead

    What are you selling? You take OpenStreetMap and make a new app from a section? Shame on you for not being honest and open in your AppStore description.

  • Deleted immediately

    by Mellykelly23

    Hard to use. Couldn't even find my town. Deleted immediately.

  • Bullcrap

    by Blaqq9

    Free app not worth the price. You have to buy any map you want to use. I wish I read the reviews before I downloaded. I deleted it after discovering its scam.

  • Don't waste your time.

    by Kenna55575

    It's hard to use. You have to pay for the maps when your Google maps app is free and faster.

  • Maps are not free

    by NishadKaippally

    False advertising, maps are too expensive.

  • Péssima qualidade

    by PabloGarrido

    Mapas de péssima qualidade, pontos desatualizados ... Não vale o investimento!

  • .

    by hdytsjdtusuxrjd

    Doesn't work. Downloaded wrong map. Hangs.

  • Don't bother

    by Scott Bocek

    They make you buy the Maps after download, don't waste your time

  • Wasted money

    by G&co

    Never managed to download, restarted several times on different wifi networks but the download never completed. I'm deleting the app and forgetting about the wasted money.

  • The apps is free but the maps cost

    by Ypx3

    The title says most of it and the app doesn't really provide any service above and beyond google.

  • Don't bother

    by DeltaT4

    I actually paid $2.99 for a map of London, but it stopped downloading after 15 minutes. I waited two full hours before giving up. Developer couldn't figure out how to refund the purchase, but did offer me a free map, which I didn't have a use for.

  • In app purchases

    by Peter Papineau

    In order for you to save an offline version you must purchase the elected city. Foe example if you wanted London you would pay, and if you want LA you have to pay again.

  • don

    by 2012UKNYC

    don't bother with this app

  • Below expectations


    This map was far below my expectations including the app I purchased ... Would love my money back!

  • Total crap

    by Dragan Florin

    You can't scroll, not user friendly at all, crashed on the first launch on my non-jailbrocken device! Do not download! Waste of time!

  • Maps cost money

    by Sam Yater

    It's only free for a few places. Worthless install

  • Purchase only if want to get lost

    by SASEBO

    This app and the map that I purchased Is not worth it.

  • Not worth it

    by EdinAruba

    The standard IPad maps apps is much better. save your money

  • Too bad..

    by Joey5802

    It was working for a bit, then it said something like "buy the full version to continue!" I rammed my iPod and asked a chef for directions.

  • Total Waste

    by hafsson

    Extremely slow. Not worth the price. Total waste of money. Stay away from this crap. Apple, remove this.

  • Garbage

    Slow and frustrating! Deleted it.

  • The greatest app ever

    by CommunistPanda

  • Don't waste your air time

    by HIGLAR
