Amphibian and Reptile ID iPhone app Released!

Amphibian and Reptile Conservation (ARC) staff have recently been working with popular smartphone and tablet app developers Isoperla and the Amphibian and Reptile Groups – UK (ARG-UK) to develop a new app for iPhone and iPad platforms.

Based on Isoperla’s successful “HerptileId” (which came number 3 in BBC Countryfile’s top 10 apps), the new app contains even more ID photos and updated information that will enable users to explore and identify the amphibians and reptiles of the British Isles.

To find the app, type “Isoperla” or “HerptileId” into the search box in iTunes or the Apple App Store. Existing users can upgrade to the new app for free!

You can also use a QR scanner on your smartphone to scan the image to the right and go straight to the Apple App Store now!

Users can keep a log of reptile and amphibian sightings using the app and take a photograph too. Reptile and amphibian sightings provide important conservation information and this can be sent in real time to the ARG-UK Record Pool database automatically from the app. This information will be used to help conservation of our native species.

We hope that this exciting collaboration will lead to a greater appreciation and nderstanding of amphibians and reptiles, and that this will deliver conservation benefits.

Watch the demo for the Iphone...

and for the Ipad...
