An extensive desktop review of 17 ‘off-the-shelf’ apps was performed, ranking the apps against specific selection criteria relevant to a typical  ACIAR project. Two apps were selected, with their critical feature being a capacity to perform multi-purpose monitoring ; CommCare and SurveyCTO. These two apps were then trialled in a six-week field pilot in villages of Gerokgak and Sanggalangit in the north of Bali, Indonesia, involving eight field researchers from Udayana University, 80 smallholder cattle producers.
