I+C+i. Research and innovation in the cultural sphere

I+C+i // APPS for a new culture

Debate

Applications for mobile devices are expanding at a dizzying pace due to the enormous popularity of smartphones and digital tablets. Previously, apps were simple tools that helped send messages, download mail or search for information in the cloud. Now, thanks to these programmes, we customise devices with different applications according to our preferences. However, apps have not only conquered users: companies, cultural and educational institutions, service providers and local councils also have applications. How can these apps affect our society? Could these apps be a substitute for websites? Can applications help to resolve local problems? Are such applications a passing technology or have they come here to stay?
