Ratings and Reviews
This is probably one of the better ways to interact with open street maps data. The live mode (subscription) is really cool if you’re a mapper and want to see your updates, usable, nearly instantly compared to other apps.
Figuring out which route to take when getting directions can sometimes feel instant, and sometimes take about 20 seconds, but it’s all being done on your device, so that’s pretty neat.
Like most reviews indicate, the biggest things this app has going against it is it’s UX. Menus are confusing initially and they don’t follow most practices you’re used too. The zoom also seems to lag a bit when using pinch to zoom (otherwise the speed of scrolling is great).

What is this
OsmAnd maps was recommended by various blogs for use in Beijing as Google Maps is blocked in China. I downloaded the app and paid for a map of Beijing but I can’t find the map in the app! Can only see the option to open it when I un-install and re-install again, but even then I can’t find a single thing using the Place search. I’m not just talking a regular address, searching freaking TIANANMEN SQUARE returns zero results. Very frustrated and annoyed, waste of money and time :(
This might be a great app functionally but the poor user interface makes it hard to tell. It keeps telling me it’s recording a trip even when I try to stop, the red recording icon never goes away. These are simple basic UI tasks that have been around forever. App deleted.
