The Frogs of Australia — eGuide features descriptions, location maps, call sounds and photographs for nearly all of Australia’s 238 known frog species.

The app has been designed for anyone with an interest in frogs, from schoolchildren to researchers.

Dr Hoskin said apps were the future of electronic field guides as they were more mobile, cheaper and easier to navigate than textbook versions.
