POCKET ZOO WITH LIVE CAMS
CONCEPT: A zoo in your pocket, complete with live cams from real zoos around the world!
DELIVERY: I was recently asked to suggest some good animal themed apps and stumbled across this app. Essentially a multimedia encyclopaedia style app.each animal included comes with a potted fact file, sound clips of the creature and video clips of them in action. Several animals can also be viewed via live cams at zoos in Sweden and Japan!
The interface is clean and easy to navigate, with the ability to filter by animal, video, cam etc. The range of creatures is also decent and there are well over 100 video clips within the app to explore. The ability to snap images form the live cams is another great touch.
LIMITATIONS: Depending on your location and the time of day, the live cams may have little to offer! It should also be noted that not all animals have live cams. The text content is also somewhat limited
CONCLUSION: it's free, it's got some good information and multimedia content. A worthwhile download. 3/5
- Learning about different animals
