Just like the Shazam app that allows you to put your phone up to radio to find out what that song is, a new app can tell you what species a plant or animal is- just by looking at it!
Too bad there isn’t an app like this for a potential mate!
Seek, free on iPhone and Android, uses your phone’s camera to identify organisms.
Seek was launched by iNaturalist.org, an online community where nature junkies can compare their discoveries with each other.
iNaturalist is a joint initiative of the California Academy of Sciences and the National Geographic Society.
