ECHO is excited to introduce our new mobile app! We represent a network of nearly 20,000 members and we have provided resources to farmers and development workers for over 30 years. ECHOcommunity.org contains thousands of documents and videos that are relevant for those working to end world hunger; the new mobile app enables these resources to be stored directly on a mobile device so that they can be viewed and shared with others while offline (Figure 6).
The new ECHOcommunity Mobile App also allows farmers to track and evaluate crops. Seeds (whether procured from ECHO seed banks around the world or from other sources) can be tracked from planting to harvest through detailed digital records. Farmers can track weather events, inputs, pests, diseases, and many other factors. They can also add notes and pictures. The data are synchronized to internet-based storage when internet is available, and retained on the device when there is no internet connection. The app is able to function on very low bandwidths.
The app is available in English through Apple [http://edn.link/apple] and Android [http://edn.link/android] app stores. Translation is currently underway for an additional nine languages. Search for ‘echocommunity’ (no spaces) in your app store to download the app to your mobile device now. If you find the app useful, please share it with others!
