Default Handy iPod/Phone/Pad app

Looking for something else, I ran into a little app called Maplets. It basically seems to be an online collection of every PDF tourist map out there, but you can download maps to the device so you can use them w/o a live connection.

These'd be painful to use on e.g. my Blackberry phone but zooming in/out and scrolling is so fast on the iPod Touch that ... well. No pain.

3 bucks. Well worth it.

Maplets Lite is a free version of this - and is available for Android, too. Maps are only for the US, though.

Ah, that's good to know. For three bucks, it wasn't a hard sell for the full version.
