App of the week: City Maps 2Go
The offline map app is said to be a ‘must-have app for every traveller’ as it enables you to use maps and content at any time without requiring any network or WiFi. This avoids the difficulty of trying to use your phone to navigate with bad network coverage, slow connection or limited data volume. Furthermore it makes it a great app for tourists as they no longer need to risk high data roaming costs abroad when trying to navigate their way around.
The app includes maps for all US and UK counties, France, Italy, Germany and many more countries.
It allows you to; search and find streets in the city, easily spot your location with passive GPS, find thousands of Points of Interest, add or bookmark your favorite places and find hotels and ratings from booking.com.
And best of all should you need a map for an area that is missing they guarantee to create a map for you immediately upon request.
The Wall Street Journal claims it is: “One of the best offline maps apps”.
