MapsWithMe Hits 1 Million Downloads

MapsWithMe, the provider of fast offline map of the world for mobile devices, announces that the first million download milestone has just been successfully passed.

MapsWithMe, debuted in 2011 with the Lite version for iOS, experienced the hockey stick in 2012 by gradually increasing the features set and ultimately releasing the Android version. This year the user base has grown 10 times hitting the 7-digit milestone.

MapsWithMe is a mapping tool designed to make their users’ travel experience smoother and safer. The maps themselves along with search, bookmarks and other features operate completely offline and do not require Internet connection. Including the maps of all the countries and cities in the world in one compact app has clearly put MapsWithMe into the driving seat in the market of offline mapping tools.

The app’s know-how is the special map data compression technique which shrinks the map data impressively while maintaining the highest level of detail possible. To throw in the numbers, the map of Switzerland in full detail is only 69MB, while the whole Brazil fits into 74MB. As a result, the map download process is remarkably fast, zooming is smooth, search is just instant and the bookmarks are always available. Last but not least, a phone would not end up being filled up by a bunch of maps, leaving space for music, videos and photos the user might want to take while traveling.

Today MapsWithMe proudly features itself in most app stores (App Store, Google Play, Amazon Appstore, etc.) and continues to grow the user base consistently.
