What is Vespucci?
Vespucci is the first OpenStreetMap editor for Android, Codename "Vespucci", continuously improved and developed since 2009. It supports the full OpenStreetMap data model including lots of less known quirks and can be used, if necessary, completely offline.
Editing is supported by rich, extensible and searchable presets based on the JOSM system, compatible 3rd party presets can be downloaded directly to your device. Fast "on the go" surveying is easy with address prediction and name based POI creation.
Vespucci has been tested and is known to work on a wide range of devices, from small phones, tablets to exotic, for example on an Amazon Fire TV Stick, and all Android versions since 2.2. It can be used in a google free environment.

Said about Vespucci as an alternative
Both are android apps, granting the ability to edit osm from the phone.
If you want to seriously edit OpenStreetMap while you’re out and about, Vespucci is the way to go. You can add, remove, and modify just about any paths or structures on the map, trace paths using your phone’s GPS and either add them through the app or upload them to use another tool. It uses a lock/unlock system so you don’t make changes accidentally, and you can place geolocated photos on the map to help you position features. It’s easiest to use on a tablet, but still packs its full capabilities into a phone-sized screen.
That said, there’s a steep learning curve. Moving around the map is a bit clunky (which matters less in an editor than it would in a navigator), and the current version is a bit buggy at placing geolocated photos.
