The rapid increase in the use of mobile phones and computer tablets in everyday life is presenting opportunities for new platforms / mediums for the scientific community. Software applications (apps) and cheap internet access are turning mobile phones into an online carry-on library and/or processing devices. For example, publishing houses are providing access to journals via dedicated apps. But, how is the geophysical community taking advantage of this new technological era? Mobile devices are now being used to assist during field work, and several seismology-related apps are already available in the form of social media, educational information, and real-time geohazard alerts. We seek contributions that discuss the present and future use of mobile apps specifically (but not only limited) related to seismology and other geophysical applications. Case studies of mobile apps used for scientific work and/or social outreach are applicable for this session.
