After announcing to OLs members first, I’d like to share the news also with other open source contributors, especially OpenStreetMap enthusiasts.
I’m working for quite some time now with some friends on CityZen app, a free open source Android app that shows different points of interest (POI) that are nearby based on your location. CityZen based on OSM for the base-map and it has predefined categories such as bars, transportation, touristic attractions etc. The app has a special focus on privacy and that is why we don’t keep your location or any other data. In addition, you can also edit or/add new POIs if you have an OpenStreetMap account and if you don’t have an OSM account you can even create one from the app.
The app is currently on alpha version for Android (ver 4.4 and up), and things seem to
work quite satisfactory.
I’d like any feedback on things people like/dislike in the current version of it. So, if you happen to have an Android phone (version 4.4 or higher) and want to be an early tester of the app please fill the form on the website and we wil get back to you in the second phase of testing: http://cityzenapp.co/.
Many many thanks in advance - your help is highly appreciated. If you happen to apply you will be contacted soon for the next steps.
