Yes i am also using this OSMand and almost all the applications mentioned
on the wiki page of osm for android.
Only osmand+ is having the facility to use vector data not the free version
of it and I have also not found any other freely available application to
use vector data.

Almost all the applications available in the android market are cheap but
not all the users personally me would like to pay for using it because its
data is already being provided by osm free of cost.

Thanks for your suggestions.
