[prMac.com] Minsk, Belarus - MapsWithMe API enables users to open offline maps from the app, add their own markers to the map, receive information about the marker, and return to the starting point.
To demonstrate how API works, App Store now has an app called "World Capitals - with offline map and Wiki articles", which will let the developers see all the functions in action. The team of MapsWithMe is planning not to stop with the current API version and to keep adding new capabilities regularly. API is a completely free, allowed for personal and commercial uses and doesn't contain ads. To use MapsWithMe API users should install MapsWithMe app (both Lite and Pro MapsWithMe versions support API calls).
The maps of MapsWithMe are maps of the whole world based on the cartographic data from the open source OpenStreetmap. The main advantage of MapsWithMe is the unique data compression technology. Thanks to that, the app makes it possible to download a map of the whole country instead of one city at a time; at the same time, the maps are characterized by a high level of detail and high speed rendering. Also more features are available in MapsWithMe Pro version: bookmarks, offline search, bookmarks export and import (kml and kmz files are supported).
