Name: JustAnotherMaps

It`s Just Another Maps based on OpenStreetMaps maps data. It does not use Bing maps. This app supports these features:
• Zooming
• Routing
• Searching
• GPS/Cellular/Wi-Fi location.
The main benefit is that OpenStreetMaps have a better map precision and geographical coverage especially in Western Europe, Asia and etc. The trial mode has all features except routing.

This app is built on these projects: OpenStreetMaps, CloudMade, DeepEarth, Nominatim.

  • Version 1.5: Speed up the map downloading process
  • Version 1.4: Improved multi-touch behavior, added “follow me”, added "route here from my current position", fixed some minor bugs.
  • Version 1.3: Added a locate me feature and fixed non-US locale issue
  • Version 1.2: Added a "Locate me" feature.
  • Version 1.1: Added a "run under lock screen".

Hi tested the test version. Please some things:

- Add a button for center the map to your current position (like in bing maps)
- Add to the test version a way to test the routing (maybe limited to 10 km radius)
- Add a list for "Favourite Places" and a "Home Place" (needed for fast routing)
- Maybe you can get more input here:

- If i search for the city "bingen" i get "Ooops something is going wrong. Please restart the application"
- Multiple finger zooming is a little bit slow (hangs)
- Scroll left right with fingers is also little bit slow (compared to ta maps / bing maps)


Nice work. If i can test routing and it works well i will definetly buy it.
I would love to see your app getting in the future more to a nice little openstreetmap navigation app.

thanks for this info its really great that you find a time to add some words on it.

"Locate me" feature will be added in next version right now Im testing it. I will look at scrolling and multitouching zooming.

Is this error message appear everytime you try to search something or only on word "bingen"? On my phone everything is okey with that query as I understand its a city in Germany=)

Hi all,
I`ve got a user that have a potential error on samsung Omnia with routing. If somebody try to use this application on omnia please replay the feedback here. It would super usefull for me because I dont have such device on hands and cannot test it.

Thanks in advance,

Hi. I bought your app and will now test routing here in germany a bit.

What really would be a benefit for routing is:

- Map targeting to position your currently driving - walking like a compass.
- To add start position by searching the start (e.g. streetname) or "current position" and also to add end position by searching.
- Could you add something like "current speed" at top right corner?

Thanks for the "locate me" ... it works, but best to add a button or?

Btw. I'am a c# developer for 8 years now. Maybe i can help?

Sounds Good! Probably a silly question but If I am in usa, does the tool load the maps automatically? If I travel to south AMerica or Europe is it the same? Do we store the maps in the main memory or should we use data roaming? Thanks and happy new year

tested today routing with my car. really: it makes no sense having routing enabled and not moving the map with current location in centered mode. you do not really want the car driver to push every 10 seconds the "locate me" button, or?

another thing is to fade out the from/to location box on top if you start "routing" ...

Looking forward to hear anything new from your side for further updates.

Just bought your app because it looked promising - especially the routing.

Tested three smaller cities in Germany... each time the app crashes.
- Nordstemmen
- Wankheim
- Langenfeld

Maybe OpenStreetMap does not recognize the cities, i don't know.
But why does the app crashes because of that?

Would love to have direct input of start and end.
Right now you can search a position, then point at it on the map and hope, it's correct.
Would also be nice if the map turns in the direction of driving (if this is possible)
Can the app run in the foreground all the time?

Rest is mentioned before.

At the monent the app is unuseable for routing.

I can imagine the hard work you had so far.
I hope you can fix the problems and make your app becomming a cool one.

Sorry for my bumpy english...
