The purpose of this special issue is to cultivate discussion about new opportunities for leveraging existing and emerging mobile technologies in the study of psychotic illnesses and to encourage investigators to think creatively about how these novel approaches can improve our understanding of the etiological risk factors, contextual influences, and possible treatments for schizophrenia. As mobile devices infiltrate more and more areas of life of the general population, they will undoubtedly become more prevalent among those with schizophrenia as well. Statistically, many of those who are currently growing up with these technologies in hand will go on to develop serious mental illnesses in the future. Looking forward, now is the opportune time for innovative investigators and clinicians to examine how these emerging technologies can be harnessed as a powerful new platform for research and treatment approaches that can be made available in the years ahead.
