About this app

WorldMap is a simple Android app that displays a map of the world taken from Wikimedia (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/33/Physical_Political_World_Map.jpg), and allows the user to scroll around on it.

The map itself is quite large (6480,3888), so it's way too big to fit in memory all at once (6480 x 3888 x 32 / 8) = 100,776,960 -- over 96 megs. The VM heap size Android supports is eith 16 or 24 megs, so we can't fit the whole thing in memory at once.

So WorldMap uses the BitmapRegionDecoder API (available as of API 10) to decode just what it needs to display.

WorldMap is open source, and the source code is here: https://github.com/johnnylambada/WorldMap

This is a good app, but it's outdated. It's blurry when you move the map. It doesn't have south Sudan and some country capitals are incorrect. This app simply needs an update.

Decent, a map and nothing more. The countries and continents are sized to their proper dimensions however. Africa far outstrips Greenland for example. But aside from major cities and political boundaries, don't expect anything else from this app.

Decent description of the world.. but not as detailed as most but still it gives you the brief example of most countries locations. Still could be more descriptive.
