Users were able to quickly enter sightings into a phone and later elaborate on the website on their sightings. Users were also able to get sighting information based on their GPS location determined by the device.
The mobile app was also a feature case study by Adobe's Mobile Team for their Open Screen Project initiative. It was selected among hundreds of applications to be part of the Open Screen Fund Project.
At this time of writing, it can still be downloaded on Nokia's OVI store.
The login and authentication screen for the app. This tied into a custom API for the website running Drupal.
The UI was custom built with the help of one designer and myself.
A lot of the UI was cutting edge for the time. This ran on the Nokia 5800 and was touch enabled.
The point of the UI was to reduce the amount of interaction and allow the user to easily take recordings of wildlife.
Sample user submitted sighting data pulled from the website and its database
Listings found for a particular area the user has selected
User is invited to take a photo of their sighting first
