Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


I want to develop a geographic game app on Android. The most simple scenario would be that the user needs to locate a city , after that the distance is measured. I know that the Idea is not new and I thing it's quite simple but I'm at the beginning and would be glad to receive some help. Requirements are the game should running offline, the map is zoomable and the installing package is not huge (less then ~10mb for example). Should I use an API for that or do I somehow link a vector world map with coordinates?

Thanks for your help!

Please type keywords like "android offline" in the search box of this FAQ site ... there are already many hints about offline use of OSM based maps on mobile devices.

My special hint for you: Search for "android" also at the OSM wiki ... there is a listing with apps ewhere you can look for offline and opensource.
