Software for research comes in many different forms and technologies. This includes software that runs on mobile devices. The demand for this is growing, whether it is for “citizen-science” projects or in clinical and educational research. In this SORSE (online) roundtable event, we discuss

  • examples of mobile apps for research
  • what are the challenges for mobile apps in and for research. In particular:
    • logistic of deploying and delivering mobile apps
    • maintenance costs
