Abstract: Successful mobile apps require user-centred processes for engaging users in app development. Mobile apps can deliver essential information for agriculture, such as market information, and environmental principles; assist farming activities, such as disease management; and provide expert consultation and education. In this light, the objective of this article is twofold: firstly to depict the current status of agricultural mobile apps provision; and secondly to implement and evaluate two educational mobile apps, for beekeeping and olive cultivation, following a user-centred process for involving agricultural stakeholders. The literature and market review show that there is an increasing interest in agricultural mobile apps and a very limited number of agricultural mobile apps. The used methodology can serve as a roadmap for other agricultural sub-sectors or business sectors. The mobile app evaluation highlighted the need for providing certified, in-time, and localised information for specific agricultural activities.
