Citymaps recently updated its app to provide travelers with integrated routing and detailed navigation features that work even when the user does not have Internet access. Instead of paying pricey international data fees, these new features give travelers a better way to navigate without WiFi.
Similar to Google Maps, Citymaps allows users to access detailed maps while they are offline. However, Citymaps also offers additional features that make it a superior option for travelers. For instance, the app will reveal points of interest on each map so that users can easily locate restaurants, stores and landmarks. The logo for each venue is also included on the map to make it easier to locate stores and restaurants with foreign names. The app even offers reviews for different destinations, adding a new level of detail to each map.
The offline features ultimately make it easier for travelers to navigate and explore a new place without the need to connect to the Internet.
