  • LPT: If you're planning to go hiking in an area where you may have poor cell phone reception, download the offline map data of the area through Google maps before hand. If you get lost and lose cell reception, you can still use the phone's GPS and downloaded map data to navigate back to safety.
    OsmAnd is a great usage of this tool, too.
  • Draw all roads in any city at once
    OsmAnd - very advanced but strange GUI, shows public transport and hiking symbols, opening hours, etc, has routing, downloads offline wikipedia articles to objects, Android and iOS (less functions)

    I really like Maps.me for the cities, so I'll echo this. I tend to switch to OsmAnd when hiking or biking (https://osmand.net/). I find it has better trail descriptions, especially internationally.
  • Finding grocery stores next to route.
    You can do this with OsmAnd. It's what I always use when following a GPX track for cycling, running, or hiking in e.g. the mountains.

    Try Maps.me and OsmAnd. Both use OpenStreetMaps as their data source.

    I would say Öffi's biggest UI weakness is how it displays the map. But as far as I know, if the data is usable for Öffi, it can be usable for all other open source apps too, like Transportr and OSMAnd.
