Summary/Abstract: The article represents the analysis of a mobile citizen’s milieu. A mobile citizen is an individual actively using portable devices and software platforms for the consumption of urban services and space. For the purposes of the analysis, urban space is defined by a transit(ive) landscape, i.e. the variety of "fourth places" or landscapeoids. Mobile urbanism is a phenomenon of the private and the public space boundaries shift caused by using mobile phones, smartphones, tablets and other portable devices. It represents the transformation of relations between individuals (citizens) and urban space: a previously invisible city becomes visible again, but this time on the new level of visuality.
