The LandPKS app is free and available on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store. The LandPKS app was developed by the LandPKS Team for the Land-Potential Knowledge System (LandPKS) with support largely from USAID and USDA-ARS. Please contact us at contact@landpotential.org with any questions, comments, or feedback.

 

LandPKS App Now Available in French, Spanish, and Swahili

The LandPKS app is now available in four different languages: French, Swahili, Spanish, and English!  The LandPKS team recently released LandPKS version 3.2.1 which contains all four languages. Please do visit the Google Play Store or Apple App Store to download the latest version.

 

How to change your language in the LandPKS app:

  1. Once logged in, go to the ‘More’ icon on the green bar on the bottom right of the screen.
  2. Go to Application Settings.
  3. On the Language dropdown, select your preferred language. 

 

Having the LandPKS app translated into different languages helps improve access to the app for non-English speakers globally.  We do not want language to be a barrier to use and adoption. Including these three additional languages will significantly help our users in Europe (French and Spanish), Africa (French and Swahili), and North and South America (Spanish).
