We are bringing our experience with bird finding and reporting apps to new groups of winged species – dragonflies and damselflies. We think that an app that that shows you dragonfly sightings, helps you identify species, and shows you seasonal abundance will be a lot of fun!
Similar to our BirdsEye app, the Dragonfly ID app will feature lists of dragonflies for any location in North America, sightings maps + brand new range maps created with data from Odonata Central, and descriptive text to help you identify any unknown species you encounter in the field. We think this app will be a fantastic tool for any naturalist in the field!
We are seeking donations to support the development of these new apps. The iPhone version is currently available for download and our goal for Android is to release the app later in 2016. Donations will not only get you a copy of the app as soon it is launched, but you will also have the option to beta test them before launch. We don’t know what the final price of the apps will be, but preordering will help us reach our goal of releasing it this Fall.
Donations of $20 or more will also qualify you for beta testing.
Also, you may be interested in OdeLog – an app that will let you report your ode sightings to OdonataCentral from your smart phone is also in the works. You can read more about it here.
