Mapping application CityMaps has relaunched on iOS with information for every city in the United States, as well as an array of social features such as the ability for users to share maps with one another.


The app includes data for over 15 million US locations, as well as contains turn-by-turn, walking, and public transit directions. It also contains notable social features such as the ability for both regular users and businesses to create and share maps through email and SMS, as well as integration into social networks like Instagram.

Citymaps’ proprietary, vector-based mobile map covers 15 million locations throughout every city and town in the United States — and we’re quickly expanding across the globe. Every restaurant, hotel and store on Citymaps is represented by its logo, so it’s easy to search and pinpoint places. Our map also features standard navigation capabilities, turn-by-turn directions, one-touch store finders, and a stream of real-time Instagram photos, menus, and user comments for every location.

CityMaps is available for free on iOS and can be downloaded through the App Store. [Direct Link]

Thought this might be a useful maps app (to add to the literally THOUSANDS of others out there) but when I visited the link and read the reviews, well I won't be downloading this.

According to their website you need to login with a Facebook account, so that makes it useless for those of us who ignore FB.....

The nice thing about CityMaps is that the maps are stored on the device so WiFi, LTE, etc are not needed for some basic nav capability (doubt if all the features such as turn-by-tun directions are available offline but haven't tried myself).

I used to use CityMaps2Go on my iPod Touch before getting iPad with SIM. Have it on my iPad too but use Google Maps instead.
