I have a client who requires the use of an offline map in their app. I am writing it in Swift and xCode of IOS use and have a question as to the best solution to use to code it. I have been investigating various products but have become stuck with analysis paralysis.

Here is a brief rundown:

App needs a simple world map which will contain custom annotations at various locations. The app does not need anything fancy such as navigation or points of interest. I don’t need the app to zoom to extremely low levels either.

Question. I am thinking OpenStreetMap tiles rendered with MKTileOverlay would suffice but want to gather your thoughts??? An examples of how to do this?

... and the way that you handle webviews on iOS has probably changed hugely in this time.

Thankfully I no longer have to fight with fruity software and hardware on a daily basis, but I work close enough with people who do to know that there are signiificant changes ongoing.
