Session Idea: Mobile Phone Apps and Tours

More and more places seem to be producing mobile phone applications. With the rise in technology, and the decrease in costs to produce the technology, it makes logical sense to start seeing mobile phone apps in cultural institutions. I am interested in finding out how to utilize a mobile phone application to benefit the institution as well as the people using the application.

I am really interested in seeing how applications are being used correctly, and how they aren’t. Using technology allows museums to reach a new audience, so how can museums embrace that with applications.
