Hi guys, do you know how to change the map layers on Android? The default layer that i'm having on my app i'm creating the standard one. There are another three map layers (cycle map, transport map and humanitarian). I would like to know if there is a way to change the map layers

I think details of the library or framework you are using will probably be helpful.

There is no standard OpenStreetMap app. Any map apps that you find on Android (or iOS or any other platform for that matter) are created by third parties, and you should contact them for help.

If you are referring to using the OpenStreetMap website on your Android, then changing layers is done through the layers icon on the right hand side of the screen. Open the layers screen, select a new layer, and close the screen with the "x".

I guess the question is about an app which is developed by the questioner ("i'm having on my app i'm creating").
