I am proud to announce that after a long public betatest, the first
stable version of the app has been released on Google Play and F-Droid.
StreetComplete is a FOSS Android app that aims to enable easy on-survey
contribution to OSM for anyone.

Specifically, it enables users to extend already mapped data through a
simple question-answer format: The app ask questions about things on the
map  such as "What is the name of this road?" or "How many levels does
this building have?" and the user is given a simple form to fill in this
information.

The processed answers are then directly uploaded as changes to the
OpenStreetMap, eliminating the need to (learn and) use another editor
for simple contributions.

In this first version, the following quests are implemented. Users can
contribute:
- road name
- road surface
- to note discussion (only notes that contain a question are shown)
- opening hours
- bike parking capacity
- bus stop shelter
- building and roof levels
- roof shape
- sport played on a pitch

More are in the works for the next version.

For more information, check out the project's GitHub page
(https://github.com/westnordost/StreetComplete) or search for it in the
app store.
