Freshly jogged into Google Play is the Android version of Skobbler’s ForeverMap 2, which offers both online and offline viewing with the option to download one entire country included the 69p app cost.
The app utilises OpenStreetMap, the open source mapping project constantly by crowdsourcing, and full map functionality is offered when viewing the maps offline, so users can search for addresses, look for locations, calculate routes and see points of interest.
Co-founder of skobbler, Marcus Thielking was on hand to spread the love:

ForeverMap 2 is the most powerful hybrid map solution on the market, allowing users to choose exactly what they want to view and how they want to view it: OpenStreetMap’s rapidly growing contributor base, which is closing in on one million users, enables us to provide the most dynamic and accurate solution on the market.
