iOSMaps is an iPhone application that allows you to view Ordnance Survey Maps at 1:50k and 1:10k scales.
Using the iPhone Core Locations feature it can access a map of your immediate area or you can search using PostCode, place name and even OSGB36 and WGS84 grid references.
The 1:10k map scale is very impressive with individual building outlines and other rich detail whereas the 1:50k maps are at a scale that will be very familiar to anyone who has used a LandRanger map.
The map data itself is downloaded over the air so only possible where a signal is present and they are not cached but for most iPhone users who have all you can eat data plans this isn't a huge issue.
