OpenMobileMaps v1.2 – finger-friendly maps application

As an alternative to Google Maps, xda-member Cipher is developing a new, finger-friendly app called OpenMobileMaps.

OpenMobileMaps uses data provided by OpenStreetMap.org, an opensource initiative which is made by people like you and me and allows you to use a free, editable world map.
