Tapas plate with the word Closed across.Tapas: Grab your mobile device and join us as we crowdsource test the NOAA CrowdMag App on August 18-29th, 2014.

For this test you will download the app and not only review it for compatibility but also keep the app on your device for a week to help NOAA test the data collection functionality and check it periodically to see how it affects your device.

No experience is necessary, just you and your Android smartphone. If you are interested, let us know now.
