Hi Janet,

See http://mvexel.dev.openstreetmap.org/bing/ - please do be aware the 
dates can differ per zoom level, so do try to zoom in on the areas 
you're after.
> 2.Are there any recommended apps to use OSM on android
For what use case indeed? For navigation, Maps.me and OSMAnd are great 
choices indeed - for mapping, you could take a look at OSMTracker 
(funcions somewhat like a regular GPS, and results in GPX tracks), or 
OpenMapKit (an add-on to OpenDataCollect; combination of survey 
questions and adding/updating features on top of an actual maps layer; 
results in .osm files). We're using the first in conjunction with 
fieldpapers in Dar es Salaam, and are using OpenMapKit in Uganda.

That would depend on the area you're looking at. There is a chance some 
of our students that (have) work(ed) on Ramani Huria could be from one 
of these areas. Perhaps Mark has contacts at more universities/colleges 
in these areas?

It does look like the import of MSD roads data is still in progress if 
you're interested in more roads data - see

Where in Dar would that be?
