Free worldwide offline mapping via Pocket Earth PRO (temporarily free)

25 March 2016, 06:43

There’s certainly no lack of choice for mapping apps but Pocket Earth PRO offers several handfuls of features that you just won’t find elsewhere – and at the moment it’s $0, having dropped from the usual $4.99. As always, get it while you can!

What do you get for nothing?

  • Free worldwide offline maps – no need to use a data connection! More than 100,000 are included and all are free;
  • Route planning, with voice guided turn by turn directions, along with public transit information;
  • 25,000 detailed Wikivoyage Travel Guides and more than 1 million Wikipedia articles in 7 languages – again, free!
  • Compressed download sizes for data, so you can store several countries without even stretching your device’s storage!

There’s much more. We’re not suggesting that Pocket Earth PRO can replace the built-in Maps app, or Google Maps, but it can tick all the boxes that those apps don’t. And with a price of $0 for such a professional and comprehensive app, there really is little reason not to install it.
