Popular location-based services provider Telenav has acquired German startup Skobbler to improve its GPS navigation app Scout.
Berlin-based Skobbler, which was founded back in 2008, is well-known for its map-based apps and games, such as ForeverMap 2 and GeoBrain 2. Its OSM technology provides open-source, user-generated data about geography. Using this technology, you can access details about roads, traffic, major landmarks etc.
Basically, OSM serves as a capable substitute for some widely popular location data services, such as Apple Maps and Google Maps.
