This week in PopTech: Unplugging, mobile mapping and affordable drugs prevailing


There’s always something brewing in the PopTech community. From the world-changing people, projects and ideas in our network, a handful of this week’s highlights follows.

  • An Ushahidi mobile app is now available for the iPhone and iPad. Mapping on the go has many benefits. GPS-enabled devices gather exact latitude and longitude, camera-phones offer photo capability, and 3G enabled devices can upload incident reports in real time. Additionally, when an internet connection is not available, multiple reports can still be collected and uploaded at a later time when the device is connected.

If you’d like to receive a stream of these updates (and more) throughout the week in real time, follow us on Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, sign up for our newsletter, and subscribe to the PopTech blog.
