Frog Croaker


Frog Croaker is a free application which uses the latest geo-location technology to showcase Frog Species found in the Namoi Catchment (North West NSW).

The Frogs of the Namoi are colourful, loud and often display very unusual habits. Frogs however are under threat from Chytrid Fungus, habitat loss and other pressures. Frog Croaker is an interactive reference tool which helps the user learn about these wonderful creatures.

What does it do?
Frog Croaker catalogues all 27 species of frogs in the Namoi Catchment. The geo-location technology simplifies identification by locating the user in the catchment then matching that location with the home range of different frog species.

Frogs often respond to the call of their own species. By clicking on the call button, the unique frog call is sounded to the frog and if it replies it helps identify which species of frog you have found.

Information about each Frog comes with high resolution images with capacity to zoom into all identifying features.

Frog croaker Text hard to access fully. Cut off on righthand side. Great frog croaks! Have not been able to zoom pics though. Can't wait to try calls on frogs.

Great fun I don't live in the namoi area, but it helped me identify some frogs and croaks in my backyard!

Great, but... The text of each frog description is mostly unreadable. Cut off on the right-hand edge and no way to scroll. HTC Desire S.
