If you are working in India or Bangladesh, the penetration of android phones is so large that mobile app based learning is almost unavoidable. A properly designed app can be used for multiple purposes. Not only will it serve as a dissemination platform, but the same app can be used as a tool for Monitoring & Evaluation and conducting survey. The design of the app and its capabilities must be carefully reviewed. The best way is to pilot and then compare results in terms of reach increased, ease of use, time and effort saved, etc. Even without any dedicated customized app, I use Whats App group as a tool for monitoring the project closely and it helps me save time and energy. Also I get success stories instantly in the group.
