Eliminate Loading tiles using fast low rez map

Never show blank tiles with “Loading…”. Instead, keep a low rez map available so that the user can quickly pan or zoom to find a place by sight.

At the moment you cannot pan to find a place.

Maps are visual!

Google Maps does this right.

Totally agree, these grey loading tiles greatly harm the look and feel of the app. This reduces the felt maturity and performance of Locus. I know it's a great app, but because of that it feels cheap.

A smoother panning and zooming experience should be high up on the agenda of e.g. @Menion


Such a pity that there is no solution. Makes Locus look so cheap. Anyone new to this app might think: wtf are these annoying flickering grey boxes.
