When I first found about OpenStreetCam, I was ecstatic because I am an occasional contributor to OpenStreetMap and this is yet another way I can contribute to "open" projects... But at the time of writing, OpenStreetCam crashes after just a few minutes of use, rendering the application largely useless. I will be reporting this to the developers, but until it is addressed, I can only rate OpenStreetCam two stars.
OpenStreetCam works pretty well as a capture app and the recent update to iD editor has made it more useful for viewing lines/tracks while editing to verify the path of the road in addition to showing the images. App could use more features to control the minimum camera timing (for phones with issues taking pictures too often) and compass alignment improvements or an option to manual set the direction based on GPS movement direction since my nexus5x is not very accurate for compass readings (setting for forward, side, behind, etc.). Hopefully support for 360 cameras in the future. Since OSC is mostly open source self-hosting is possible but beyond the public repositories not being up to date the app doesn't support using another server to upload tracks. Would also be helpful to specifically state if this is for on-vehicle photos (Cars, bikes) or if it can be used for more (like Mapillary). Perhaps different capture modes for on-foot and point of interest, or since the website can be forked an OpenFootCam website for such photos
The upload not on data setting does not work. Nice idea the implication is not so great.
I like using the app, I do get paid for driving around, but recently I've had some issues. Earning anything. I will say that they do actually pay you, it just takes a while. Lately however the new pricing setup makes it difficult to reach a payment without an OBD device connected - I do have one, it works just fine (it works in Torque app perfectly) but this app will not let me use it - it says my speed is zero and therefore doesn't record anything. So I'm only getting $0.0074 to $0.03 per km most places. Using an OBD device basically doubles the payout. Developers, If you can successfully implement the obd devices instead of just slashing our payouts I will revise my review to 5 stars.
Took a little work to get it stable. Had to switch recording modes. Never had an issue receiving payment.
Most changes in this update are under-the-hood improvements and bug fixes.
