What's happening right now:
We've updated Lakes SOS with 17 new species as well as improved reporting functionality. You can now report invasive plants, fish, mollusks, crustaceans, algae, reptiles and mammals.
We are currently working on a wetland app specific to wetland professionals collecting field data. This app is available on Apple's TestFlight beta testing app (contact us for more info) and should be available on the App Store within the next month.
Note: This app is for scientific data collection and will most likely not be used by citizen scientists.
Our iOS Apps
Our apps are free to the public, and we really do appreciate feedback and suggestions from our users about improving not only content but also reports and report functionality. Don't be shy, contact us!
This is what people are saying about our apps:
"It's about time. What an awesome app!
"Great. Best app ever!"
"Awesome. This is an amazing app! Definitely useful"
"I highly recommend Rash Plants. It's an indispensable guide to the identification and understanding of poison ivy, oak and sumac. I'm happy that this reference is available in such an accessible way."
"This is the app for poison ivy, oak and sumac. Detailed descriptions of the plants, where to find them, the rash, and remedies for it. It also has information on look-alike plants and how to tell the difference. TONS of pictures, and a quiz to see how good you are at spotting the plants."
"Love this app! I'm so thrilled I can now do my data sheets for Southwest Monarch Study and upload photos and weather data all in one place!"
Excellent! Wonderful app. Great tool for information."
"What a great all around app for monarchs!"
Love this app! Living in the Florida Keys and becoming a "citizen scientist" has really increased my love for and understanding of sea life ten fold. I find myself looking at this app every day to see what's new and how I can help to preserve this beautiful ocean and reef. Thank you for bringing this information."
