The Corbett Foundation and Earthwatch Institute (India) have come up with an easy-to-use app called Spider Watch that looks at 50 common species of spiders belonging to 23 families found in India – whether you’re in a city, a garden, or a sanctuary – you’re likely to find them there. This app was made to facilitate on-field identification of common spiders of India, with an objective to bring these little tigers of the undergrowth to the forefront, and to inculcate further interest in them.
Just search for “Spider Watch” on Google Play store from your android phones, or follow this link.
Its usage is fairly simple. Here are some screenshots of the app:
|This is the title page, of course.|
|Once you scroll down from the image of the spider, you will come to this page which provides the basic information about the spider in question.|
|If you click the magnifying glass symbol on the top-left corner from any spider image, you will come to this page showing thumbnails of all the 50 spiders. Click on any spider image if you want to activate all the tabs which get hidden on this page.|
If you have any queries, you can write straight to me or to the contact details provided on the (i) icon which is at the top of the icons on the left-middle corner.
