ForeverMap 2 launches for iPhone

skobbler has today announced the launch of ForeverMap 2.0, a groundbreaking leap forward for the popular offline Google maps rival.

Developed and improved following valuable customer feedback and advice, skobbler is pleased to release its mapping app with enhanced and new features that significantly improve the usability of the app.

Utilising the outstanding mapping data provided by OpenStreetMap, compressed and installed to be readily available without an internet connection, users of ForeverMap 2.0 have a comprehensive mapping solution always on-hand that is continuously updated to provide the most well-informed data.

Initial customer feedback proved that supplying mapping data for the whole of Europe resulted in the app size being too big for some users.

ForeverMap 2.0 now enables users to select and download full map data for individual countries and their cities from a full collection of European maps, without restriction, giving the freedom to find the right balance between the size of the installation and the map material of interest. 


Once downloaded onto a mobile device the data can be instantly accessed offline, making the app the perfect travel companion even in the most remote destinations, as it avoids drop-off data loss and eliminates costly roaming charges abroad.

For users of iPod touch and iPad without 3G, it’s the first viable, portable digital map solution.

“A crucial part in developing ForeverMap 2.0 has been listening and reacting to customer feedback,” commented Philipp Kandal, co-founder of skobbler.

“We have completely changed the structure of ForeverMap 2.0 and have done so in just a few weeks. The speed in which we make updates is a testament to our commitment to creating the best mapping solution possible.

ForeverMap 2.0 includes: offline search; location finder; route calculation; and information on places of interest, providing users with a fully interactive, offline map solution that can be used anywhere, anytime and without limitations.
