I see OsmAnd at the top of the list. https://f-droid.org/app/net.osmand.plus
@jalcine I tried OsmAnd for the first time last month and I am super impressed. In several ways it was better than Google Maps.
For web use, https://www.openstreetmap.org/ seems to do most of what I want.
Neither one supports public transit yet as far as I can tell, but since many transit authorities make their GTFS data freely available to the public, I'm hopeful that somebody will fix that eventually.
@jamey I just launched OsmAnd and WOW it really is nice! I'm like satisfied and also interested in the sensibility of this app! Like if enough work, I can see me doing "check-ins" from it!
@elomatreb Legit! I'm about to use it all of the time. I do want to make my contributors "hidden" so people can't predict my whereabouts.
@elomatreb Eh, fuck it. I kinda expose it passively by my check-ins already.
@brainblasted oh it's 100% closed :(
@brainblasted ugh I'd have to find a way to block them, maybe via a VPN. But like it's really good and I don't know of any public transit options (at the moment)
@jalcine the app "Maps" from f-droid works much, much better than osmand!
@tethre it doesn't work at all for me :(
@tethre yeah I know :( :(
@jalcine now playing: "Wake me up when we can have nice things" by Green Day 😸
@jalcine Maps.me (aka 'Maps') also does subway routing in a limited number of cities
@rory peep the replies to that post for one regarding Maps
@rory I'll try this out as soon as it downloads to my phone. It doesn't seem to pull from F-Droid.
@jalcine Given the rest of your thread, this may not be what you're looking for, but look into the open source projects that used to be available from Mapzen. It's all open source and provides APIs for forward and reverse geocoding, navigation, and more.
Mapzen shut down a while ago, but the pieces have been picked up by the Linux Foundation, so may be likely to stick around for a while.
Social is the primary social media platform for the forth coming fourth version of Play Vicious, a new initiative built to bring attention to the plethora of creative acts that don't get the shine they deserve.
