hello,
we are two Italian students interested in the world of Bitcoin and we are working on some projects related to it. We are pleased to announce the release of our first app: BitcoinMap.
BitcoinMap is a free Android app that can be downloaded directly from the Play Store. It allows you to locate every commercial activity that accepts Bitcoin as a method of payment.
This app uses data from the openstreetmap.com users for stores, while it uses Google Maps as map service. You can use it even offline.
Updates require a sporadic download of data, almost negligible.

Download:
                                     

Main features are:
- Interactive map with clickable markers (normal map and satellite view)
- An updated list with places near you
- A list with your bookmarked stores
- Bitcoin values in different coins with an integrated calculator
- Sharing of a place with whatsapp, sms, and other sharing services
- Store filtering by name
- Multilanguage support
- No ads

Requested permission explained:
- Photo/elements media/files: it's the permission required to access the usb storage; we store offline data in a file using this permission.
- Telephone call: when you display store informations, you will able to call the number reported.

We add here some screenshots to show the features:



We are developing new implementations but we are working on it in our spare time.
We are writing this post with the hope of getting feedback from the community, with the intention to improve it.

For more information or updates please check http://openbitlab.com/, the platform where we collect all our ideas, and the related blog http://blog.openbitlab.com/ or write to us at:
support@openbitlab.com
staff@openbitlab.com

If you like this app, feel free to make a donation using this BTC address: 13gbybVyaYy5yA7Z7si2zJfo2Aat6d7c8z

We are constantly evolving, looking for new ideas and projects; your help it’s important for us!

No, currently there isn't a web version

I have tested it,it is a coinmap mobile app,isn't it?

It could be considered similiar to coinmap, but there are more features, such as bookmarked stores, and many others are coming...thus we hope it will be more useful!

We are pleased to announce our first partnership with Coinbit.it!

With the release of the new version 1.2.5 it is possible to buy Bitcoin using the new section "Buy btc" that now appears on Bitcon Map (currently only for Italian users).
There you can find every available method to buy bitcoins, a description of the modes of payment and an updated list of prices; Bitcoin Map then redirects users into the website to complete the order.

If you manage a FIAT exchange you can email us (support@openbitlab.com) because this partnership is available for every Country!

Hi, I would like to suggest a feature.
Nokia has developed a software called "street view", a preview;


I think you may add something like that;
"If there're 10+ stores in 0.5 km radius, a streetview icon appears and user can navigate by camera like nokia did".
These numbers are just samples, you can optimize it of course.

Thank you dezoel, ikydesu, okae, Griegura and cakir! We really appreciate your feedback, we are more motivated to improve it Cheesy

Especially your idea, cakir, is awesome! We analyzed it: we can do a sort of preview, but better than that one Cheesy we will work for implementing it, but we need time, it's not so easy Wink
