Custom Citizen Science smartphone apps

For your project we release your own custom branded smartphone application for Android and iOS.

The Citizen Science projects on the SPOTTERON platform are released as a stand-alone smartphone application for Android and iOS in the app stores of Google and Apple. The apps feature a unique color setup and can be branded by your own project and partner logos. By building on many years of constant development, all apps are optimized for performance and high usability with a custom look and feel and many advanced features included for free.

CORE CONCEPTS

own custom apps

Each project on the SPOTTERON platform gets its own custom smartphone apps for Android and IOS and can be uniquely customized while sharing a common ground and high quality design for usability and looks.

mobile first

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.

collaborative platform

Don't walk alone - every new feature a project contributes to the SPOTTERON platform is available for all other projects to adopt for free. Let your project benefit from the extensive feature set built over the last 3 years and 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 ethically decision, we have chosen a flexible subscription based model for project costs simply because we never monetize user data, create or sell ad profiles of Citizen Scientists, nor do we include third party trackers in your Citizen Science apps - because privacy matters.

All projects on the SPOTTERON Citizen Science platform are in compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and allow users to always download a copy or to delete their personal data without compromising the project's data quality.
