About the App

The app uses the microphone of your smartphone to capture the sound in the surrounding environment. This sound is analysed on the phone itself to provide you with immediate feedback on whether the cicada is there or not. In both cases, if you complete a survey (by tapping on the cicada image in the detector page), the app will send a report to the project team with location and time of the survey, and the result of the cicada detection. If the app has detected an insect call that is similar to a cicada, it will also prompt you to upload a recording so that it can be analysed in more detail.
The app has been developed in collaboration with Rareloop, a software development agency for mobile and web.

Other platforms

The development for other platforms has been considered, but has not started yet. Do contact us if you think you would be interested in using the client on a different platform.
