In this session, we will be sharing with the IFF Community our more recent work focused on providing digital services to people with little or no access to the Internet due to a natural disaster, a humanitarian crisis, a lack of infrastructure or the high cost of Internet service. From user research based on these scenarios, we created "Butter App" - a suite of offline services in a portable format that can be hared peer to peer or installed on a hotspot (Butter Box) to share via WiFi.
Butter App is a collection of open source apps that work without access to the Internet, and can provide assistance during blackouts, in isolated areas and in everyday life when there is no access to the Internet. Among them, offline navigation apps, health trackers, survival manuals and games.
Featured Guest David Oliver, Co-Founder & Fabiola Maurice, Community Manager of The Guardian Project
