Hi Jayamine,

I'm the one that proposed the idea you are asking for. I'm glad someone 
is interested in it.

You should probably take a look at the Overpass API [1] and probably to 
the Tile servers [2].

And about the app. I don't think there is anything similar (if there is, 
please, tell me). I thought about an app which showed you information 
about public transportation in the city you choose. Showing in the 
background a map like this one [3] and also showing information about 
stops, frequency [4] (where available) and any other thing the OSM 
database could contain. Routing features would also be really cool.
