The map material is impressive but that thanks to SwissTopo, not Swiss Map Mobile. The application itself is a nest of frustration as far as usability is concern. A link to the PDF manual (currently hidden on the swisstpo.ch web site) in the app itself would help. A import/export *directly* to file (XOL/GPX/LOC) would really help.
This app would be amazing...but nothing really work like it should.

Could get expensive if you download lots of tiles.
Beautiful maps, but the app is almost ruined by dumb programming bugs. It crashes frequently. After a crash it needs multiple retries before it restarts cleanly. And some parts of the user interface design are just incomprehensible. Worst of all, it eats INSANE amounts of data because its map caching is totally broken. This afternoon it used 630 MB of data in less than four hours of use for a walk in a small area near the Pilatus, even though I had supposedly "preloaded" the area beforehand. Also it doesn't track your position in real-time, which is disappointing. If the developers ever fix these bugs then this app will be brilliant, well worth paying for, but they'll have to do a lot better than this.
