MapQuest has announced that transaction limits for their free Community licensing for mapping APIs have been removed! MapQuest has also clarified that the Community Edition license can be used for paid mobile applications.
This is great news for anyone concerned about Google’s recent pricing changes for Google Maps API. In addition, MapQuest supports OpenStreetMaps – an awesome crowdsourced mapping platform that is extremely worthy of support.
We haven’t yet looked into converting web maps using the Google Maps API over to Mapquests, but we were able to switch over to using MapQuest for Android with very little difficulty (it was pretty much a straight drop in ).
