Discover the fascinating world of whales and dolphins with this comprehensive and detailed app for your iPad (also available for iPhone). Whaleguide app offers lots of information for every whale watcher or nature and wildlife lover of every age.
The information in Whaleguide app is the result of research in scientific literature making it up to date and reliable. However, the text is easy to understand for everyone, without any previous knowledge (also suitable for schools). You will quickly become an expert with this self-educating app. The app describes 68 species of whales and dolphins in an entertaining way and contains as much information as a good book, but has much more to offer.
For each species you will find a quick ID and a complete description, information about behaviour, diving behaviour, diet, reproduction, possible hot spots, interesting facts, popular names, key facts, information about the taxonomy, the scientific name and distribution, including GPS based distribution.
In "Whale Watchers World" more than 1,800 Hot Spots (around 1,000 are land-based) in more than 100 countries are highlighted. The app informs which cetacean species may be seen, where, at which time and how. You will find more than 1,600 active links to websites of whale and dolphin watching operators (as well as of cetacean research and conservation organizations plus tourism information). In addition you will find important information about the code of conduct, selecting your equipment and responsible operators, as well as photography hints.
Whaleguide app contains around 900 spectacular photos of whales and dolphins and 68 comparative size drawings. On the basis of a few details that are visible from boat (or from land) and using the GPS function, the interactive "Finder" helps you to easily distinguish between the 68 species the ones you just spotted. Alternatively, when planning your next trip, you can find out in advance which whales and dolphins you may encounter at your destination. Whaleguide app can also be used offline (except for GPS based functions).
In addition there are more than 580 extra photos and more than 80 spectacular video clips available as an upgrade (in-app buy). In the video clips you will be able to watch the fascinating behaviour of whales and dolphins and listen to their impressive voices.
Whaleguide app was developed by Ralf Kiefner. His book "Whales and Dolphins, Cetacean World Guide" has been published in 5 languages and is considered a "must have" for whale watchers.
