Hey Orux!

It looks like your app is not available any longer in the PlayStore. The direct link returns an error message and OruxMaps does not appear in search queries. I hope that something just went wrong and it doesn't mean that you abandoned the project, does it?

Best wishes

Hi,

Problems with some map providers. Alleged copyright infringement. I will try to return without some online maps.

Meanwhile you can test the beta version-->www.oruxmaps.com/cs

Oh, not good. I really hope you get it solved, maybe with support of your community.

OruxMaps disappeared from PlayStore? Empty Cloudy prognosis for cloud apps

Post  libove on Sun Sep 15, 2013 6:32 am

Lovely how the author of the app wasn't notified of this action before his (our!!) app was yanked from the store.
With Google's destruction of key, much loved functionality in its own Google Maps app a few months ago (overnight, with no notice), and their fiasco with the iPhone version of Authenticator more recently (everyone who updated lost all of their configured app authenticators), and myriad other examples of how "our" contents are not under our control (including the Kindle book which Amazon deleted from users' devices when Amazon found that they had to removed it from their store), I worry greatly that the cloud has some too-sharp edges...

Good luck to our friend orux in resolving this and getting back to his good business of making a phenomenal app (instead of being distracted by the bad business of responding to, well, other companies' bad business practices!)

Hi Orux, maybe a change to a basic online maps only when just installed from play store (google maps for instance?) and then give (easy) possibility to download a more complete on-line maps file? Personally I do not use the online maps feature, but I know, many do. It would be a pity if Oruxmaps cannot come back to Play store, because this will reduce exposure for the "large public" and therefore money for Orux....

Also, take advantage of us in your audience - we may be able to help with the legal question.

What content, was being accused of infringement how, by whom?

Thanks of all;

I talked to them, hopefully the problems will be resolved, and the app will back to google play soon.

But I have to eliminate many online maps. I do not want more problems. Each user will need to add map sources they want to use.
