For Disaster crisis like the Haiyan Typhoon, it is important to collect geolocated data about vital infrastructures and the OSM contributors cannot do this remotely. To do this, we have to find innovative ways to collect data adapted to humanitarians and various people that circulate in the area. 

On the Typhoon Haiyan Wiki page (https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Typhoon_Haiyan), we are promoting OSMAND. An Experimental hourly updated Philippines map for OsmAnd is available here: http://osmd.ch/haiyan/. Many thanks to the developpers that contribute to offer such softwares and services in the context of these humanitarian actions.

On the talk-ph list, a contributor mentions the limit of 10 downloads of maps. Is this limit in the Application itselft, and if so, could it be removed for downloads from http://osmd.ch/haiyan/ ?

OsmAnd can only be downloaded using you android phone. there's non for ios. for the free version, you can download only 10 times whether maps or add ons like tts but this is what i noticed.  i downloaded the application and installed it. i copoied the downloaded map to my ext sdcard coz i needed to reformat my cell phone. after reformatting my cellphone, i reinstall OsmAnd and allow me to download 10 time like its my first time to dl from what they allowed, on top of what i have dl before
