CityZen is an open source Android app that helps you navigate and explore your city easily. With CityZen you find points of interest (POIs) such as ATMs, gas stations, drugstores, mobile phone stores and other interesting services near you. The app shows these POIs based on the location of your smartphone, but it does so by respecting your privacy since we don’t keep your navigation data. The app is licensed in an open source license because we want to engage as many people as possible in improving the app. It is also a way of respecting tools and platforms such as OpenStreetMap that respect our freedoms. If you are an OpenStreetMap contributor you can easily add information to the POIs by editing them inside CityZen.

Download & installation

Users and contributors can download CityZen through F-Droid, an installable catalogue of FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) applications for the Android platform. The F-Droid client makes it easy to browse, install, and keep track of updates on your device.

Language support

Language support in the current v1.0.0 includes only English. However, contributors have already translated the interface into more than 10 other languages, which will be available in the next update.

See status for individual languages and participate in the translation on Hosted Weblate. More information about the translation system can be found in this blog post.
