Do you wish to use the osm for navigation on a smart phone or some other use

Yes sir. I am going to use it on smart phone using cordova. I am targetting Android, iOS and Windows platform majorly.

Could you expand a bit about what you mean by "integrate and use OSM"? It might mean display a "slippymap", such as the map background you see at, or it might mean you want to use an OSM-based service such as Nominatim (perhaps hosted at OSM, perhaps hosted elsewhere) for geocoding or reverse geocoding, or it might mean that you want to obtain the location of a particular sort of item (convenience stores, perhaps) by doing an Overpass query, or something else entirely. What sort of thing are you planning to do?

Finally I stumbled upon a github project dealing with OSM-based maps via mapsforge format in Apache Cordova framework:

Any short reports about success in using this are welcome.
