The government’s position on apps The government’s position is that native apps are currently rarely justified.

Standalone mobile apps — Government Service Design Manual

The bibliography ranges broadly, from articles on “contingent valuation,” “ecosystem valuation” and the general “costs” of knowledge, to those that directly address the cost issues associated with digital preservation and stewardship.
