That's why we at TudoCelular decided to choose some of these apps to show you the details and features that each one has so you can better decide when to download it to your phone. We're making four reviews available, three of them for free (Google Maps, Waze, and Here) and one paid (free for the first seven days for testing).

Google Maps

Indicated for:

people who already have a Google account and who like a lightweight and very complete app containing 3D maps and especially Google StreetView

Google Maps was an Android and iOS app (iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch) that once served

just as an online guide where you could look up addresses and plot routes to get to

It's some destination you don't know. Over time, it has been refined and created within

of the app itself, the so-called Google Street View, which consisted of you being able to see the streets

from anywhere in the world with just a few clicks! It was certainly a revolution in the world of

However, even today no other company has been able to replicate the feat of Google.

Indicated for:

those who would like to merge the Google Maps app (in terms of functionality) with Waze (in terms of community) and don't mind paying for the app

Sygic is an app for iOS (iPhone and iPad) and Android that works as a GPS whose main

characteristic of its ability to function offline, that is, it is not necessary to have a

Internet for the application to run smoothly (unlike other competing applications

in the market that without internet the application does not work). The only problem with this iOS app

It's only free for seven days and after that you can pay $ 29.99 to continue with the

100% working application.

Indicated for:

those who are fans of Nokia and who do not always have internet access to be able to browse because Here has an offline browsing mode

Nokia Here Maps is an application available for Windows Phone 8, Android and iOS (iPhone, iPad

and iPod touch) that works similar to the Google maps app: you can

search and plot routes from various places, save locations to your favorites list,

routes by car, foot and even by public transport among other features that we will

detail in this review.

All applications tested are excellent, each with its own particulars. It is up to the reader to analyze the reviews well and choose the application that suits them best. For example, if you don't have a 3G internet connection or have a limited monthly plan, there's no doubt that the best app for you is Here. If you don't like to wiggle around the app map to see if a path is in transit or not, choose Waze as it will automatically map the best path for you. If you like Google StreetView, go with Google Maps. Finally, if you can afford to buy an app that has a good community and has almost every feature, choose Sygic.
