Explore the wilderness of Britain and it's wonderful creatures through Pocket Pals, a new interactive app for your mobile phone.
Get outside, find Pocket Pals, and learn about the Wildlife of Britain!
Using the GPS on your mobile device, you can walk and locate digital animals. Through the excitement of exploring and tracking animated animals, users will learn how to identify and classify British fauna. From quirky pine martens to lesser known but equally marvellous animals such as the jumping spider.
Explore real wild spaces such as forests and nature reserves to find rare Pocket Pals. If you visit in the evening you might find an array of night time species like the common pipistrelle bat or a cute hedgehog!
When you spot a Pocket Pal on the map, you can take a photo through the mini-game, but be quick! Some Pocket Pals are shy or fast and might run away! Then explore the 360 environments to see all the species you’ve photographed. Here you can also learn about them, and even view them in the real world through augmented reality!
Personalise your character by customising their appearance and style, so that they’re ready to explore and find Pocket Pals!
Remember to be alerted with notifications of new animals and environments! Soon you can view dolphins and killer whales underwater in the marine environment!
- The cuckoo bee has been spotted. Can you find one too?
- Rare markings have now been seen on some pocket pals... Not all wildlife looks the same!
- Bug fix when trying to save the photo to device's camera roll in AR.
Ratings and Reviews
This app is perfect for children and adults alike getting everyone outside and exploring their surroundings! As a teacher I shall be using it within my classroom and hopefully encouraging others to use it too as it is full of information with a gaming aspect too.
Just downloaded the app, having great fun looking for animals. Such a great idea to get kids interested in wildlife and encouraging them to exercise too. Well done to all involved.
Absolutely brilliant for getting kids involved with wildlife and a great way for learning!! I never write reviews but love this app so much I just had to!!
