A small step for the App Store, a huge step for us.
The iOS North America Edition of ForeverMap is live in the US and Canada for iPhone, iPod and iPad. It gives people the chance to get orientation without the necessity of a data connection anywhere they are. It’s available at an introductory price of $0.99 for a limited time only. Find out more and watch the video trailer now.
This version is actually the most-advanced of our OSM-powered map app to this date and gives people a glance on what to expect from the next update of the European version, which will be available very shortly.
As we’ve put a lot of thought into our new app description, I can’t think of a better way to sum the app up. So here it is (make sure, you click on the screenshots below):
ForeverMap by Skobbler brings you the most comprehensive offline mapping solution available on iOS. Fully interactive city and state maps, covering all of North America, with you always, whether you’re online or offline.
Address search, location finder, route calculation and loads of information on places of interest provided by Wikipedia, are just a few of ForeverMap’s key features – all of which are fully functional WITHOUT a data connection!
Offline orientation means you’ll never again be dependant on a data connection to get to where you want to go. No more roaming charges. No more waiting around for maps to load. Just rich, dependable, reliable maps whenever you need them, on any device. In addition to being a complete iPhone mapping solution, ForeverMap also turns iPod touches and Wi-Fi iPads into fully-fledged mapping devices!
To get started, hop on a WiFi network, download as many city or state maps as you’d like, and use them anywhere and everywhere – all without ever worrying about staying connected. Because of advanced map compression technology, you can easily store several state or even country maps on your device for unlimited and unconnected map access!
