Be they children or adults, nature lovers will enjoy this beautiful app by Green Mountain Digital. New users get access to the “free birds” sampler, and if you choose to register for a free account (name and email required), you will also gain access to the insects and spiders module. Beyond those modules, there are four additional ones available for purchase (more birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians, and wildflowers). Each module consists of a set of cards displaying a number of species. Selecting an individual card brings up information for that species including a general description, information for identification, and the species’ range. Beyond the beautiful photos and the species descriptions, each module also offers games such as a photo quiz, memory challenge, and puzzles.
