We started the Open Data Kit (ODK) project.

ODK replaces paper forms with smart forms on phones or tablets. It's great for mobile workers (e.g., census takers, building inspectors, health workers) who need to collect data accurately and report results instantly.

Besides collecting text and numbers, ODK can be used to take pictures, capture GPS location, scan barcodes, get signatures, and even play videos!
