So you’re in the middle of São Paulo and you’re not sure how to get to the picturesque Paulista Avenue. Mobile data is expensive and spotty. Surely all is lost, just like you are. Well, today is your chance to foresee this horrible turn of events, and avert your fate by grabbing City Maps 2Go, a maps app that works offline. Made temporarily free via AppGratis, City Maps is a collection of exactly that: city maps. It’s like having access to the AAA office within your phone, and allows you to pre-download a map of just about anywhere, so you can be sure you’ll have it when you need it.
Say you’re planning a trip to Japan: pop open City Maps, navigate to Download, Japan, Cities, Osaka. One 10MB download later, and the map lives on your phone, accessible any time independent of your connected-ness. Of course, if you are connected, you can also get your GPS position on the map, browse nearby restaurants, transportation, and so forth. But if you’re not, it’s still just as good as having the foresight to carry around a paper map.
So what you need 2Do is 2Go over 2AppGratis and snag it while it’s free (it’s normally 2Dollars).
