The RSPB has made its debut into the world of Smartphone technology by launching two brand new apps for the iPhone. The apps provide nature lovers with a bounty of information on things from wildlife and habitats to local events and the charity’s 200+ nature reserves.
loveBirds, priced at £4.99, is a comprehensive app that allows users to identify birds, listen to birdsong, and access detailed information from the charity’s experts on birds’ appearance, diet and distribution.
loveNature, which is free to download, lets you browse RSPB reserves, find out how you can get involved and help, and get directions to reserves and plan your visit.
Doug Christie, the RSPB’s product and licensing manager, said: “We designed the apps to be inspirational; allowing users to access useful and interesting information about the wonderful wildlife in this country and helping them to plan visits to our reserves so they can see it for themselves.”
