Misleading price from map app
Heads up to all. Gps maps( maps by nokia) by smashing apps studios is advertising. For $1.00 but charges you $3.99. So don't get jacked. I also sent them a email for support and received nothing back. They even deleted my review.

I see your review from here too.
Apart from this how is the routing? Does it work offline?
Is it really related to Nokia, which AFAIK only proposes its mapping online (and through ordinary browsers) for non-nokia devices?
Because, on Nokia phones this GPS mapping/routing is definitely one of the best...
(What is worying is, in App world, there is just no illustration, and the app itself 'weights' just a couple of hundred Ko: looks like just an online wrapper -but maybe I'm wrong)
FWIW: the online Nok mapping is at Nokia Maps - City and Country Maps - Driving Directions - Satellite Views - Routes

Re: Misleading price from map app
All these online wrapper apps really get me angry. How can someone justify charging as much or more for what is often just a browser that only goes to one page, than someone who has put in the work to code something that actually works on the playbook. Do the owners of these websites (nokia, google, Pixlr etc) know that people are making money from their intellectual property?
I think a purge is in order.
