Mapillary for Android lets you capture, upload and explore images with your mobile phone, and get an overview of your profile and Mapillary activities. We're working to make the app work well on as many devices as possible but if you're looking for suggestions, here are the options that we've tested most extensively and should provide the best possible experience:
- Samsung Galaxy S8
- Huawei P10 Lite
- Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017 version)
If you use memory cards, we suggest Class 10 (or better) memory cards from well-known manufacturers (like Samsung, Crucial, Kingston, etc.).
When you first open the app, you are required to sign into your Mapillary account. You will need an internet connection for that.
If you don't have a Mapillary account, please create one. You can sign up using your email. You need to choose a username for Mapillary and provide an email address to be used for communications (this email will not be visible to anyone publicly).
The signup flow (with email)
To sign, you have to first sign up for a Mapillary account. That is, you need a Mapillary account for using Mapillary.

A tour of the app
When you’re signed in, you can access a number of screens. The Home screen will display a feed of your Mapillary activities. The Explore screen lets you search for places and explore the images that people have contributed to Mapillary. The Capture screen lets you capture your own images, which you can then review and upload in the Upload screen. The Profile screen will display your Mapillary profile together with everything you have uploaded.

There is also a hamburger menu (swipe from the left) where you can access a number of app settings, log out, join the beta tester group for the app and send us debugging logs if necessary.
