> I am planning to include a section on location-aware apps and mapping, and

> Mapsforge is one option, however IMV the new 0.4 API has a little too much
> complexity for what will be complete newcomers to Android development (they
> have Java experience though).
>
> So I'd like to use osmdroid, however I'm aware that apps that use raster
> tile sources can place a strain on tileservers.
>
> It looks like osmdroid will now talk to the MapQuest tileservers though.
>
> Will it be acceptable - particularly if I use MapQuest - to use osmdroid
> for this course? There will be 20 students max.

> Thanks,
