Good idea, but...
I bought this for our upcoming vacation to Papeete and Moorea, thinking it would be a useful tool. As a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) specialist, it had an obvious attraction to me. An offline map is a brilliant idea, but the app is flawed in its implementation, mostly deficient maps. First - no satellite imagery; just a small scale outline map with very primitive cartography overlaid with points of interest icons. Second - there are darn few points of interest! Given that the two islands are quite small, the publishers could have identified virtually every building, road, and sight-seeing location with very little effort (I built a better map using only public domain data from the Internet in a mornings work). The gazetteer is nice ... Hospitals, hotels and such ... but pretty limited.

Don't waste your money on this app! We just returned from Tahiti , Moorea and Bora Bora. The information in this app is limited and not up to date. You would do better to go on line and read “Tripadvisor” and it's free or pick up the local brochures while your there. I'm dumping this app.

Waste of money!
I bought this app because I'm a Tahiti specialist. Limited and inaccurate hotel information. Not many restaurants listed. Shopping lists stores in my area, not stores in Tahiti. Gallery pictures were extremely disappointing! Wish I could get my money back, total rip off!
