Davide's App Featured in BBC Wildlife Magazine29th August 2013
Davide's New Forest Cicada app - available for both Android and iPhone platforms - has been featured in BBC Wildlife Magazine (Summer Edition) as one of the 'three things they love'.
The NFC App in BBC Wildlife Magazine
The app uses the microphone of your smartphone to capture the sound in the surrounding environment. This sound is analysed on the phone itself to provide you with immediate feedback on whether the cicada is there or not. In both cases, if you complete a survey (by tapping on the cicada image in the detector page), the app will send a report to the project team with location and time of the survey, and the result of the cicada detection. If the app has detected an insect call that is similar to a cicada, it will also prompt you to upload a recording so that it can be analysed in more detail.
