In de Dierenzoeker vind je de meest voorkomende Nederlandse huis-, tuin en keukendieren. Het gaat om dieren uit de directe leefomgeving van mensen. Dieren in de stadsnatuur, zoals tuinen en parken, maar ook binnenshuis (de spin in je badkamer, de pissebed in de kelder). Via het beantwoorden van vragen over het door jou gevonden dier (bijv. over kleur, gedrag, aantal poten) kun je hem uiteindelijk op naam brengen en er meer over leren.
Op dit moment kun je ongeveer 300 dieren vinden, waaronder allerlei vogels, zoogdieren, vliegen en muggen, spinnen, pissebedden, duizend- en miljoenpoten, vlinders, bijen en hommels, mieren, amfibieën (kikkers, padden, salamanders), kevers, wormen, slakken, vissen en verschillende slootbeestjes. Er komen uiteindelijk zo'n 400 dieren in de Dierenzoeker.
De Dierenzoeker is een initiatief van Naturalis Biodiversity Center, Het Klokhuis (NTR) en EIS-Nederland.
You are able to use the app for both identification in the field and the capture and reporting of your own sightings. If you register on the Gaia Guide website, your sightings can be uploaded to the server where they are passed on to the CSIRO's Atlas of Living Australia. From there, they are contributed to the Global Biodiversity Information Facility, contributing directly to our knowledge of species distributions.
The species lists in this mobile version of the field guide are incomplete because any descriptions without identification images have been omitted. However, the species lists on the website version of the field guide are deemed to be complete. The next version of this app will also include complete species lists. The update is expected to be released by the end of 2014.

An electronic Scuba Dive Log book for Android. Record your dives and diving licenses, view sites on a map, and dive statistics. Buy the Dive Log Key to unlock the full functionality and support development. Without the Key only a small number of dives can be stored.
See the update info in the application for what's new. Unfortunately I only have time and knowledge to support a very limited number of languages for the application. Please let me know if you want to contribute a translation.
Be aware that screenshots are from an emulator running Android 2.3 and the application might look slightly different on your device.
A friendly request: Please reply by email if you find problems so I can try to help. If you put it in market comments there is not much I can do since I can not respond to the directly.
Most common questions:
* How to switch to metric / imperial units?
From the main screen open the menu by pressing on the menu button on your Android device. This can be a physical button on the device or a soft button on the screen. From the menu select the Settings option to open the settings screen where you can make the units selection.
* I can not edit the contents (diver, dive, etc.)?
Unless specifically opened for editing (e.g. by long pressing on a dive from the dives list and selecting it from the context menu), a screen will show info in reading mode (to avoid accidental modifications). You can start editing by opening the menu and selecting the edit mode.
* I can not find the Key in the market / can not install it?
The Key uses a Google copy protection mechanism and is not made available by Google for devices that it does not authorize. E.g. when the device is rooted, has custom firmware installed, comes from grey import, etc. At the moment there is not much I can do about this, but feel free to sent me an email.
(You need to keep the main Dive Log app installed!)
