A number of new features has been added to the application during the last six months: bookmark groups import/export, bookmarks sharing by sms, additional information about POI etc.
The main advantage of MapsWithMe is in unique technology of data compression which makes the size of map files impressively small with the highest level of detail provided.

As a result, it allows downloading a map of an entire country, maps are downloaded fast, zooming in and out is very smooth and, what is not less important, phone's memory usage is very frugal.
