    "Google Maps is my go-to app to find whatever I need. Other maps just don't have the same amount of information. The routing is always useful. I like that it gives walking directions as well as by car. A must-use!"

    "The app isn't exactly bad, but it also isn't great. This is a pretty low quality version of the idea, compared to other free apps on the market. So while it'll work, it is no where near the best."

    "I have an Android with very little shared data and I travel a lot. I downloaded a offline map app called OsmAnd - Maps & GPS Navigation. It seems pretty good so far and it is free. I use it often and I find it very useful and reliable."

    "As as competitor to Waze and Google, this is not too bad. I like how it adds the bus routes, fares, and even the average price for ride-sharing services. As for navigation, it's just as good as Google's (it seems to use a part of their API), though I'm not exactly crazy about the boring black and white and gray color scheme. "

    "I bike a lot around town and I want a map app that doesn't completely suck data from my phone, so I grabbed Maverick. It has really detailed maps completely offline! I'm very happy with it. I especially like the off-road feature, as it navigates me though areas that I can bike through but not drive through. "

    "Navmii does allow for offline map storage which is nice. The online version is nice as well. No GPS system is perfect, but Navmii does a pretty good job. The latest version appears to fix some prior glitches."
