Yes, we offer the data in many formats. The .OBF format is
specifically for an Android (and no IOS) app called OSMand, which is a
navigation and routing app that works offline (i.e. the data is stored
right on the phone in the .OBF file so it doesn't need internet).
We made the file on request for some of the Red Cross people who were
about to leave for Nepal.
If you check the wiki page for the event there are several formats
available, check the links in this section of the page:
Let us know if there are specific areas where your would like to see
better data, or if there are areas you know are particularly hard hit.
