Simple OSM is a reliable OpenStreetMap (OSM) client for Microsoft Windows Phone.
Its main purpose is to view and search in maps from the
project. In the beginning, there were just a small number of features, but until
now lots of things have been added: several other layers (e.g. Bing Maps, Google Maps)
can be chosen, an advanced search and basic routing functionality is included, saving of
favorite locations as well as recording, sending and downloading of tracks is possible.
Furthermore, you can search and download tracks directly from
GPSies.com, where you will find
dozens of categorized tracks.

Search results are based on OpenStreetMap
Search for generic POIs is possible if the "map view" check box is selected. A list of available phrases can be found
If your device contains a compass, this sensor will be used to calculate
orientation while not moving. The small arrow on the map always points into
the direction you are looking - even if you are inside a building.
Routes to search results or any custom location can be calculated by long-pressing
on the screen. On the settings page, you can also choose whether routes should be
calculated for driving or walking.
Favorite locations or search results can be saved as custom pushpins to
remember certain places. Custom pushpins can be categorized and filtered.
Tracks can be recorded and sent to any email address in the gpx format.
Tracks in the gpx format can be transferred to the device
over this website. Track recording continues when the screen of the
device is locked and is automatically resumed if the application was closed
or forced to suspend (e.g. due to a phone call).
The trial version includes all features, but you always have to wait 30 seconds
after application startup before usage is possible.
