Creative Cameraphone Use in Rural Developing Regions

This paper considers the current and future use of cameraphones in the context of rural South Africa, where many people do not have access to the latest models and ICT infrastructure is poor.

The paper reports a new study of cameraphone use in this setting, and the design and testing of a novel application for creating rich multimedia narratives and materials. The authors argue for better creative media applications on mobile platforms in this region, and greater attention to their local use.
