Bugs Count app now updated for Android phones

The Bugs Count app has been updated and is now available to download for free from the iTunes App store (iPhone) or Google Play store (Android phones).

This mobile phone app lets you take part in real scientific research on the go. If you spot one of our six Species Quest invertebrates, such as the Green Shieldbug or Two-spot Ladybird, simply take a picture using your phone and instantly submit it to our scientists.

The phone automatically collects the date and location, so you’ll be contributing a highly accurate scientific record. Didn’t identify the species correctly? Don't worry, our scientists will verify the species from the photo. Even if it isn't the one we are looking for, the record will be passed to the relevant recording scheme.

The app also includes a simple invertebrate ID guide, including lots of facts and identification tips.

Download the app for free and get bug-hunting today!
