Simple OSM is a reliable OpenStreetMap (OSM) client for Microsoft Windows Phone. Its main purpose is to view and search in maps from the OpenStreetMap project. In the beginning, there were just a small number of features, but until now lots of things have been added: several other map layers (e.g. Bing, Google Maps) can be chosen, an advanced search and basic routing functionality is included, saving of favorite locations as well as recording, sending and downloading of tracks is possible. Furthermore, you can search and download tracks directly from

Search results are based on OpenStreetMap (Nominatim) data since version 2.12. Routing is still based on Microsoft Bing services. Learn more about this app at

You can download it from the Windows Store.
