New App for Spider Research

blog House Spider

TouchApp released a new free mobile app, Spider in da house, in August 2013. This app was developed for researchers to study the house spiders’ behaviour and habitat in the UK. The project was collaborated with the Society of Biology and provides both iPhone and Android apps for FREE downloading. Every app users can take part in this exciting research activity, sighting house spiders and so far, scientists have received nearly 2000 spider records around UK. They are satisfied with this new Mobile App Assisted Research mode.

This year we are going to record house spiders as they move indoors, and we need sightings from around the UK. A free house spider recording app ‘Spider in da house’ is available through the Android and Apple app stores. The app, developed by us and built by TouchApp, allows people to report their sightings of Tegenaria spiders and helps identify other spider species.  – From the Society of Biology website
