This app was produced to provide information on conducting research using smartphones. It is designed to go anywhere, on any web-capable device. The Contextual Studies team hopes you will find it useful and that you will be encouraged to take advantage of the the ability to take pictures and record video and sound for research, just as you might in your daily lives.

The app includes a map of interesting places around London that could be useful for primary research

We have also added a Harvard Referencing section that will allow you to check how to format references for a range of both primary and secondary sources.
