Hiking Apps (GPS based navigation online/offline)

There are some great posts on the forum with many links to helpful websites with detailed maps, but I haven't found anything specifically for us who prefer not to print out, or are too tight to buy, paper maps.

Anyone using an app they can recommend, iOS or Android.

I have taken a look at ViewRanger and it is ok but limited free maps and so I was looking for advice before taking the plunge and paying for routes when I might not need them.

So far my hiking has been limited to Rigi (Arth-Rigi Kulm- Vitzau) and everything was well signposted, but the general advice is to always have a map "just in case"

I should also add I just looked at the SwissMobility app which isn't free (CHF35 for offline maps I think) nor very easy to use or modern but might be an alternative to ViewRanger. Anyone used either/both?
