3.5 Mobile devices


Is it possible to use old Nokia Phones (not smartphones) to collect data?

Unfortunately not, you have to have a smartphone to be able to use mobile apps. Each mobile app does not work with all operating systems (Android, Apple, Windows…), therefore be careful what you buy. For example, ODK Collect does not work with Apple devices, so you must ensure Android devices are available.

Which devices should I buy ?

Recommended features and settings as well as a comparison of devices is available in section 4.2 Preparing your hardware .
