The paper deals with mobile applications, and brings the results of qualitative research into application software in museums and galleries. After providing a detailed description and classification of software for mobile devices, the paper introduces possible ways in which to analyse and evaluate it, especially the rules of User Centred Design and Conversion Centred Design. The typology of museum applications for mobile devices was implemented on the basis of a detailed content and function analysis that was carried-out on 14 museum applications. Among other factors, the typology shows the basic difference between straightforward information-based museum content and its didactic transformation. At the end of the paper, the design and development of this type of digital product is subjected to discussion while its potential significance for museum culture is also addressed.
