1.11.16. WebDAV File Manager


There a many apps that claim that can manage webdav-powered servers. Tiki requires that the webdav app is able to manage folders with spaces, for instance ("File Galleries"), and not alol seem to do it. WebDAV File Manager is a small free application that works outof the box nicely with Tiki webdav powered File Galleries.


1.11.17. ZamiaDroid


An opensourced android application that provides a compact tool to integrate new field citations and to create floristic relevés directly on the field, without having to transcript the annotations later, from a paper format to an informatized format. No more typo errors thanks to the included thesauri. And everything directly integrated with the gps data.

It can be interesting for Tiki since ZamiaDroid allows you to generate your own forms, with your own custom fields, and allows you to save this information in your own db of items. So it would probably be to adapt the source code to make it general enough to provide a mobile version of tracker generator, and feed (sync) trakcer items between the android smartphone and the tiki-based tracker.
