EDPS mobile app

EU Data Protection is a free app for mobile devices from the EDPS. It allows you to compare the latest proposed texts for the forthcoming General Data Protection Regulation from the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union. The app also includes the latest recommendations from the EDPS to the co-legislators. All the texts can be loaded in any given combination to compare them side-by-side (maximum two texts on smartphones due to the limitation of screen size).
