Developed for the SPICE program at The University of Western Australia, the Food Web app lets you play with feeding relationships between unique plants and animals found in Western Australia.
Your goal is to create a complete food web using sets of organism disks that represent producers, herbivores and carnivores in an ecosystem. Learn about these species and their roles by flipping the disks to view photos and diet information.
When your food web is complete you can add one of Australia's most destructive introduced species - the cane toad, and see the threat it presents to native animals.
- Three ecosystems to play: Cottesloe Reef, Herdsman Lake and the Kimberley.
- Two difficulty levels, each with several sets of organisms.
- Take snapshots of your completed food webs and save them to your photo library.
- Guides and instructions help you build the food webs and learn about organisms and their relationships in an ecosystem.
- New food web: Cottesloe Reef.

Seems like a fun concept but crashes after a while of trying to engage with the objects, and the linking system doesn’t seem to work as the instructions describe.
Great idea but does not work on my 2017 iPad Pro. It keeps crashing and the connections between trophies levels does not work. It is, however, good to see that the energy flow arrows are the correct way around and the information discs are simple and direct. I hope that it will work for earlier iPads so that I can use it in the classroom.
Love the idea, was trying to was in the classroom but it just constantly crashed whenever I tried to open it
