    Navigation app that isn't a subscription about 2 days ago:

    OsmAnd is based on the same data (OpenStreetMap) like but has way more features and can be customized to the max. The data can be downloaded and is then offline available. However, I don't know if the elevation data is for free.
  3. Global mobile map viewing and navigation for online and offline OSM maps

    Navigation app that isn't a subscription about 3 days ago:

    OSMAnd+ - less intuitive but more feature rich.
  4. Fast detailed offline maps for travelers, tourists, hikers and cyclists, based on OpenStreetMap and curated with love by MapsWithMe (Maps.Me) founders.

    Google apps alternative about 10 days ago

    For maps, I like Organic Maps, they are offline and use OpenStreetMap. Address search is meh, but depending on your country and region, most points of interest are there, and are searchable. However, Organic Maps is much better for parks and hiking than Google or Apple.
  5. Leaflet is a modern, lightweight open-source JavaScript library for mobile-friendly interactive maps.

    Suggestion/ Help about 5 days ago

    To create webapps, learn some basic HTML and CSS first. Once you‘ve gotten the hang of it learn JavaScript. For maps, there‘s a nice JavaScript library called Leaflet JS.
  6. Qwant Map, still in alpha, is designed to be an alternative to Google Maps, based on OpenStreetMap

    Maps like or OsmAnd, or other services that integrate OSM data into a final product are the best ways to use OSM as an actual map service.
