Google Science Journal app

Google has launched Science Journal on the Google Play store, a phone app that turns your phone and its sensors into a citizen-science research platform. You can also buy simple lab kits from Exploratorium to enhance your phone’s scintillating science supremacy. Doubtless there are other cit-sci apps, but it’s good to see Google offering a free platform. One wonders if the app’s title presages a future publishing journal, in which a Google A.I. aggregates and digests the mass data and reports (from all the apps) and turns them into short academic articles?
