myOSM is an online and offline viewer for various map types such as OpenStreetMap, Cloudmade and OpenCycleMap. myOSM can also show your current location on the map.
There are some major advantages over the corresponding webpages:
* The maps can be accessed if not being connected to the internet.
* The various map types can be accessed within the same GUI.
* Bookmarks for easy access of often used locations
* Nearly fullscreen view of the maps.
* Maps can be saved for future usage.
* You can see your current location on the map.
The maps are stored locally on the harddrive and can also be used when being offline. You can download the maps at different zoom levels for the selected map region. Using this feature you can download a map e.g. before going on a trip.
myOSM provides a bookmark feature for easy access to often used locations. You can also search for locations and the map can be saved to a file or sent to a printer.
Currently, myOSM supports the following map types:
* OpenStreetMap - Mapnik (Retina optimized)
* OpenStreetMap - Cloudmade
* OpenStreetMap - MapQuest
* NASA BlueMarble
Bugfix for OS X 10.6 and 10.7

Outdated, no touchpad support
Might have been good a longtime ago but this app doesn't support touchpad scrolling (like Maps on MacOS). Waste of time
What a clunky, user unfriendly app!
I downloaded this in hopes of learning more about an island we are planning to visit (Bermuda). I have no idea what this app was designed for, but it was not for this! To begin with, The maps are static and you have to click, drag, click, drag to move the page so you can see more. You can zoom out the view from space, or you can look at a featureless shape. Wish I could get my $2.00 and my time back. Why can't I find an app for my mac like Maps on my iPad? I jsut want to see the layout of the island and cities and beaches, get some idea of the distances between them and outher historic destinations. Not the app for me.
Really like the different maps….but
It's a very well thought out map viewer and I really like the 6 map choices. However as a mapping tool (as opposed to a map viewer) it has several shortcomings. One important feature that seems to be missing is the ability to use the mouse to see the lat/lon of a specific location. The program always tells you what the lat/lon is at the center of a displayed map. But that's not very practical given that the location I want to know the coordinates of is not always in the center of the map and there is no marker to precisely tell where the center of the map is located. A simple crosshair in the center would solve that problem. Still…turning on and off lat/lon display at the curser would be the most valuable coordinate finding tool. Some drawing tools and pins would also add value. Saving the map as a .pdf is an already included feature. Nice simple program that could be really valuable given the vacancy of decent mapping tools on Macs. Keep developing this…please...
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
