Said about MapQuest as an alternative
This is both yes and no. OpenStreetmap consists of map database, several renderings of that database as map images and web tools for browsing the images. MapQuest uses the same database, in a read-only way, although they may augment it. However it does have a different rendering from the default OpenStreetmap rendering and has a different user interface and additional functions. The OpenStreetmap user interface does, however, provide access to one of the MapQuest renderings.
Great mobile app. Probably one of the best alternative to Google Maps on mobile. Website is also pretty good too, but other map providers have better websites.
