Pushpin is an app for editing and contributing data in OpenStreetMap, the free world map. Use your OSM account to make edits with Pushpin. It's designed for contributing points of interest to OSM; places like restaurants, clinics, bars, train stations, bus stops, banks, and hotels... and even amenities like bicycle parking racks, public restrooms, or post boxes.
With Pushpin it's simple to add POIs with lots of detail. The tagging structure for editing OpenStreetMap can be pretty complicated, but Pushpin makes it much more user-friendly to contribute. It has built-in rules to know when to ask if the venue has Wi-Fi (for things like hotels), what sorts of food the venue serves (for restaurants), and more!
Browse or search POI types in a logical naming system, without having to know the specific tag names
Add points of interest in your current location, or manually place them on the map
Fetch existing points from OpenStreetMap to edit or reposition
Geocode addresses with Nominatim (the OSM geocoder), to save time in typing address information
Built in search to find other locations to edit
Use aerial imagery or standard OSM map tiles for reference

I am a heavy OSM editor and I rely on this app nearly every day for on the go editing. The UI is very well thought out and there is handy tool tips and documentation for every function of this editor. It's also very stable and reliable, even though it seemly hasn't been updated in years.
Very good execution
I've used a buggy crashy version of this in the past.
Haven't had a problem with the current version even with heavy use, and over 3G. Intuitive interface that I would never have thought possible with OSM. And fast too.
