bigplanet-maps application for android

android google map cache


Posted by hudvin on February 26, 2009

Bigplanet is an advanced map application:

  • supports different map sources: Google Maps, OpenStreet, Yandex Maps
  • cache of loaded maps – map tile is loaded only once and than saves in local file cache(so you can use app even without any network connection!). This feature allows you to save a lot of money(app don’t use expensive gprs connection).
  • bookmarks – just add you favourite places to bookmarks if you don’t want to find it each time when you use app
  • zoom in by double tap(like in iphone): You don’t need to use zoom controls from zooming – you can just double tap place you need.
  • save map in given radius. Allows to save map around selected place. For example, you can save map around your home using cheap wifi connection and then use map offline.
