    Hacking/Solving Mobile DigitalHumanities

    Thursday, April 28th, 2011 | kirkhess

    Along with text analysis and working with GIS metadata, one thing I’m currently curious about is applications for mobile devices; I’ve attended a few presentations about mobile websites in libraries and I know the nuts and bolts of Android and iOS development but other than mobile-izing a given search & browse website (which of course doesn’t need an app) I’m unsure humanities projects even want to hassle with a mobile device ‘app’. We could demo a few different apps and work to develop something cool; maybe someone has a particular problem and we can ‘solve’ it with an app.
