Every Citizen Science app comes with a wide range of advanced features and integrated tools from the start, which are included for new projects without any extra development costs. Due to our long-year experience and constant ongoing development, all apps are optimized for performance, reliability and high usability. To guarantee a hassle-free run-time of your project, we keep all apps updated and provide ongoing support!
own custom apps
Every project on the SPOTTERON platform gets its custom smartphone apps for Android and IOS. It can be uniquely customized while sharing a joint base and high-quality design for usability and looks.
The internet has become mobile with 70% - 80% usage on portable devices. We embrace this technological reality by focusing on mobile apps while still providing interactive maps for browsers as an alternative input option.
Running smartphone apps needs constant maintenance. We provide regular updates to all of the project apps, running on the SPOTTERON platform with improvements and new exciting features.
Don't walk alone - every new feature a project contributes to the SPOTTERON platform is available for all other projects to adopt for free.
Your project will benefit from the extensive feature set built over the last three years, and you don't have to start all over from scratch.
social citizen science
All projects on the SPOTTERON platform include a full feature social network, built seamlessly into the apps and interactive maps, creating a buzzing community of Citizen Scientists and researchers with a high level of interactivity and long-term motivation.
we don't track users
As an ethical decision, we have chosen a flexible subscription-based model for project costs simply because we never monetize user data. We do not create ad profiles of Citizen Scientists, nor do we include third-party trackers in your Citizen Science apps. Simply because of privacy matters.
