There is no "official" OSM application for Android. Most applications are written by individuals not necessarily connected to OSM; check who has written yours. If it is Open Source, then you or anybody else can modify it; if it is proprietary software, then only the owner can do that. If you are talking about "Open GPS Tracker", that's Open Source and you can download it here.

Other Android software is listed on the Android page on our wiki.

Are you referring to OSMTracker (wiki, project, code)? If so, then yes, as the code is open source and licensed under the GPLv3. However, it has not seen much development recently. I hope to get involved some day, but I'm not sure when. Check out the issues list and see if the features you want are there; if so, then star them so others know if a request is popular, if not then add your request. There's also the possibility of someone working on this or a related Android application as part of the Google Summer of Code 2012.
