I just can't get over how great StreetComplete is. It looks fantastic, is incredibly easy to use, and actually makes it fun to contribute data about the Real World for the benefit of everyone.

If you run Android, be sure to give it a try:

@vinnl Recently got my 100th ⭐ and I’m very happy with it. I even wish the Web editor took a note or two from it.

@afranke @vinnl the #OpenStreetMap web editor (iD) recently got better support for tablets, so maybe it can be used much more outside.

Do you know about pic4review ( ), which is kinda like that? It's got the direct surveying of things like StreetComplete, but the desktop browser feel of iD?

@rory @afranke I had not seen pic4review before, but that looks very useful. Thanks for sharing!

@vinnl yes it is great! Been playing a lot with my kid during the holidays!

@vinnl And the possibility to attach a photo to a note is incredibly useful 👌

StreetComplete is the new Pokémon Go 😊


Moi j'ai desinstallé cette appli le premier jour de confinement.
La voir sur mon téléphone tous les jours me filait le bourdon.

De retour de vacances je la réinstallerai, ce sera avec joie !


I removed this app in March since it was unauthorised to get out of our homes (covid). It made me so sad.
But I will set it up again on my phone the sooner when back from holidays. Yeah!

@vinnl StreetComplete is awesome, and part of the future of #OpenStreetMap IMO

It recently received funding from OSMF tll

@vinnl it does however require mobile broadband data because it cannot download the map beforehand

@guenther Yep, which I ironically don't usually have. (Except for this month because I was on holiday.)

One thing I do is to download quests for somewhere I know I'll be going beforehand, pay attention when I'm there, and then enter them afterwards.

@vinnl Thank you for the reminder! 🙂 It was a good summer break task for the kids today.

I just started using osmand and it looks great too! Is it a similar thing?

@BradReed OSMAnd is great, but it's useful as a navigation app, and to make edits you know you want to and how to make. (And its UX isn't always entirely intuitive, though it's improved a lot.)

StreetComplete is only for contributing to OSM, and it does a lot more handholding. It tells you what data is missing, and helps you add it in the correct format.

Oh so it's a complementary thing. I might check it as well. Thx!

@wolf If you follow the link I posted you'll end up at the StreetComplete downloads page, which lists Play Store, F-Droid and direct APK download links :)
