Usually don't rate apps but after a trip to Europe using this offline maps, I can asure you, this app will make your trip easier and you won't miss any important spot in the city. I used London, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Venice, Rome, Florence, Barcelona, Madrid and Lisbon! In Budapest I felt lost because they don't have a map for this city but Google also doesn't have a map for Budapest offline. I'll put 6 stars but I can't so 5 it's the closest. One more thing, all this is for FREE! And this is not all, also you can download the information about the historic places in the city and then you can get the info offline. You have to try it!!
I recently bought Ulmon Solutions Paris 2Go and was hugely impressed. The map is responsive and the included wikipedia pages are great. This version is also very responsive and has a fairly complete serchable database of streets, but the display of street names is lacking. For smaller streets or areas with a great number of streets, there is no zoom level that is sufficient to show all the street names. This makes it particularly difficult to locate streets in the Centrum. Also, this app lacks the ability to search for addresses. This is a real problem in Amsterdam where some streets such as the Herengracht can wrap all the way across the city. Additionally, not as many locations or wikipedia pages are included with this version. The low battery consumption, swift panning of map tiles, searchable database and excellent price make this app a winner, but some improvments could definitely be made to the display and search features.
I downloaded the Ulmon guide for four cities in preparation for a recent trip to Europe: Munich Prague Vienna and Amsterdam. You can drop pins, actually stars on places that you're interested in visiting including sites restaurants hotels etc. The off-line maps are fantastic and the articles helpful. I tend to keep my phone on airplane mode when I am out of the United States this app was fantastic because I was able to use the map even when I wasn't in Wi-Fi. Download the guides before you go on your trip if possible this way you can read and save articles but if you don't download it until you're there that's fine too.
I downloaded this app on a recent trip to Amsterdam and was so happy I did. Make sure you have enough room to download the articles as well, you can always delete after you're done with your trip if you need the memory on your phone. This app helped me navigate in Amsterdam, and gave me information about anything I wanted or needed. Since it was downloaded on my phone, it didn't matter that I wasn't connected to wifi and I didn't have to use pricey data. I definitely felt safer knowing I had this app on my phone. Got it for the rest of the cities on my trip too!
Used this app in Amsterdam when tourist maps did not show the level of detail that this map showed. It was very helpful when using trams. There is construction that causes some trams to go on routes that are not published. When we got off a tram in an odd place, I whipped out this map and did not need wireless to find out where we were and how to get to a landmark I had previously pinned on this map. It was a time saver. I also used this app to plan my trip. I dropped pins on museums and then could determine the order for visiting them.
The map was terrific. Loved being able to save my places I wanted to go to on it. Using the map while offline was great and it didn't drain my battery at all. Much better than a traditional paper map because the blue dot shows you exactly where you are. Will remember this app for other cities!
It provides a clear and relatively simple map of Amsterdam along with many excellent features that add different types of information to the basic map. GPS can be invaluable when you are on the street somewhere and don't have any idea which way to go. It is very user-friendly, time saving and reliable.
Awesome app. I used it constantly on my trip to Amsterdam. The gps works great with no wifi or data plan. The map itself has good detail. Zoom in to even the smallest streets. You cannot get lost because you always know where you are and the direction you're facing. I would use these maps wherever I travel.
I used this app for my trip to Amsterdam. Extremely helpful and complete. I especially loved the offline maps that also showed you where you were at all times. Restaurant and shop recommendations were great too.
So helpful in getting around the city. GPS works in offline mode, so you can see where you are going. I like that you can star your favorite places, and easily search for restaurants and stores. I wish that it would let you enter and save places that are not loaded in the app, though.
This map was better than any of the paper city maps I was given when I arrived. Easy to use. The only thing that took me a minute to decipher was the tram lines. But once I figured them out getting around the city was easy.
I use this app on an old iPad2. It works fine and the maps are very high quality. I've been to The Dam about 10 times so I feel I know the difference between good maps and crappy ones. These are good maps----Charles from NJ, USA
Love this App.. I travel extensively and found this app. To be very valuable in pre-trip planning. I do wish there was a way to link this app. To trip advisor reviews. I also find that a good number of highly rated places to eat are not loaded.
Very detailed at first glance. Will not actually use the map until next month when we are in Amsterdam with GPS turned on. Then we'll see how it flies. Am currently using it to find locales and it is very good at that.
