We have published a topo basemap to ArcGIS Online as a vector tile package (VTPK).  Is there a free mobile app that will allow anyone (i.e. people without an AGOL account) to download and view our VTPK on their mobile device?  And still be able to view the VTPK map when they are out of network coverage?

Free maps (VTPK) are great but they are not helpful if your audience needs to buy apps or an AGOL subscription to use them.

Thanks,

Bernie.

Field Maps App can be used without signing in and it can be used to view Mobile Map Packages that have been created for Anonymous use in ArcGIS Pro.  The Publisher Extension is needed to create content for anonymous use.    This blog article explains it, but also in the beginning shows the use of Field Maps to view a Mobile Map Package for Shenandoah National Park.   You could create a mobile map package that has your VTPK as a layer in the map.  You can also include feature and raster layers... a full offline map allowing your users to search for features and show popups.
