ForeverMap 2 for Android takes on Google Maps
A lot has been made in recent months about the lack of Google Maps on the iOS platform with many users complaining about the in-house application now on offer. Meanwhile Android users have no such issues with a variety of map applications available including Google Maps, but today we have news of a new app for Android to take on Google’s offering titled ForeverMap 2.
The application has recently been launched on the Google Play and is promised to offer Android users some unique features and benefits, and the application uses OpenStreetMap that is a worldwide open source project. It is promised to be the most dynamic map available and is showcased via the widely popular GPS Navigation 2 software from Skobbler.
Users get to decide how they use the maps that include full countries and continents with states and cities also available, and can also be used offline as well as online. There are also map upgrades available and the app offers great detail and accuracy that is increasing all the time thanks to the contributor base constantly growing.
There is advanced map compression technology that limits the amount of space the application takes up of the handsets memory, and the OpenStreetMaps data even allows pedestrians, hikers, and cyclists to get the best route to their destination of choice.
Users have the option of bookmarking favourite places and getting Wikipedia information for locations of interest, and the app will gain free regular map updates that will offer great detail and accuracy.
Other options include address search, route calculation, location finder, pan, turn and zoom controls, and locations can be shared with friends. The app is available now on Google Play with cities costing Â£0.69p, countries Â£1.99, continents Â£3.99, and the whole world is only Â£7.99 or equivalent currency with users that have already downloaded the application giving it favourable reviews.
