Ushahidi is an open source platform for democratizing information, increasing transparency and lowering the barriers for individuals to share their stories.
The Ushahidi Android app synchronizes with any Ushahidi deployment allowing viewing and creation of incident reports on the go.
The app supports loading of multiple deployments at one time, quick filtering through reports, exploring incident locations on the map, viewing report photos, news article, media as well as sharing reports via email, SMS or Twitter. Once the data has been downloaded, the app can function without an internet connection, allowing accurate collection of data utilizing the device's camera and GPS capabilities.

We are channeling all energies into developing the new Android client built on top of v3 APIs. We will still accept
PR and will publish a release once we get a couple of
PRs for fixes and features from the community.
How To White-Label The App
Duplicate the /Themes/Ushahidi folder and rename with your theme name, for example /Themes/MyTheme. Note, you can use /Beijing or /Inherity themes as an example.
Replace the files "/Themes/MyTheme/res/drawable-hdpi/icon.png" (72 x 72), "/Themes/MyTheme/res/drawable-ldpi/icon.png" (36px x 36px) and "/Themes/MyTheme/res/drawable-mdpi/icon.png"(48px x 48px) with your custom designed application icon. You can use this (launcher icon generator)[http://android-ui-utils.googlecode.com/hg/asset-studio/dist/icons-launcher.html] tool to generate a launcher Icon.
