SciSpy App for iOS Lets You Practice Being a Real Ecologist

Do you believe, deep down, that it is your hidden calling to become a masterful ecologist? SciSpy, the Science Channel's new app, lets you dabble in this field by allowing you to document the natural world around you—even if you don't go any further than your own backyard.

The app lets you snap pictures of any living thing you see—and automatically date-stamps, geo-maps, and uploads the photo into the Science Channel's online database. From there, scientists, ecologists (like yourself!), and casual observers can use your findings for research or entertainment. The app is free, and available now. [iTunes]
