This paper introduces a novel crowdsourcing platform provided to the community. The platform operates on mobile devices and makes data generation and labeling scenarios available for many related research tracks potentially covering also small and underrepresented languages. Besides the versatile ways for commencing studies using the platform, also active research on crowdsourcing itself becomes feasible. With special focus on speech- and video recordings, the mobility and scalability of the platform is expected to stimulate and foster data-driven studies and insights throughout the community.
