In this paper we present a study on crowdsourcing subjective knowledge. We introduce a mobile app that was built for this purpose, and compare results from two datasets collected using the app. One dataset was collected during a workshop and the other one during a one-week long field trial. We present interview findings on mobile knowledge collection. Further, we discuss the types of information that should optimally be collected on the go, and show how our data analysis supports the qualitative findings. This work directly continues our earlier efforts on creating a platform that encapsulates wisdom of the crowd for decision support.
