Smartphones are the most important tools for refugees and most of them use them regularly. AppsforRefugees is a platform that collects various Apps that aim to provide information and learning opportunities to refugees. It includes Apps for language learning and Apps that provide information about a city, a region or a country. This website tries to consider the technical conditions refugees are usually exposed to. For this reason, the website is a “no frills” page: Fast loading times, optimized for mobile phones, connected to the social networks, feedback and rating function to ensure quality. Visitors to the site can directly download the available Apps to their mobile phone, from Google Play Store or Apple App Store
