Does anyone know if any existing augmented reality (AR) apps on mobile devices use the OSM database?

On iPhone, I have looked at acrossair, Layar, Wikitude, WorldSurfer and Robotvision. They are capable of displaying geotagged data from a variety of "layers" (data sources), such as Google, bing, Twitter, Flickr, Panoramio, foursquare, Gowalla, etc., overlayed with the camera view of the surrounding area. I have not seen OSM in any one of them, but I may not have looked too closely, or overlooked the ability to add new layers, or did not look at the right app.

Yeah, it's there. Had to dig for it inside the app, though. And to be honest it does not look too great, the Wikimapia layer is both richer and cleaner :( Oh well.
