Discover Wildlife Like Never Before on Your iPad or iPhone
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – December 13, 2011 – Fotopedia, the publisher of popular iOS apps, in partnership with Wild Wonders of Europe, the world’s largest photography-based conservation communication initiative, is proud to announce that “Fotopedia Wild Friends”, their newest app, is now available on the App Store for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
For families, nature lovers, photographers or explorers, Wild Friends is the perfect app with beautiful content, updated daily and delivered as Visual Stories. Whether you’re looking for adventurous up-close nature photography or just some relaxing wallpaper for your desktop or iOS device, Wild Friends delivers. The app arrives just in time for the holidays and completely free.
Watch as a baby seal hatches, as a polar bear falls asleep, as a wolf hugs the ground while it stalks its prey — each encounter guaranteed to surprise and delight. This app is packed with rare close-up images of fascinating animals such as arctic foxes, chamois, dolphins, humpback whales, golden eagles, monk seals, puffins and walrus – as well as less familiar creatures such as the wisent, the saiga antelope and the ghost shark.
Sixty-nine nature photographers explored a whole continent in 135 missions across 48 countries to bring us a selection of their best images. With Fotopedia’s new Visual Stories, built into the app, you can follow their steps and discoveries.
“We hope this app reminds us all to cherish and protect our precious natural environment, our companions on this planet and their habitat. Wildlife is making an amazing comeback in Europe, showing that nature conservation really works. We just need to support it!” said Staffan Widstrand, Wild Wonders of Europe’s Managing Director.
“With Fotopedia Wild Friends, we are introducing a new way to discover the beauty of the world, offering Visual Stories every day for all family members to look forward to and share” added Jean-Marie Hullot, CEO of Fotopedia. “I am thankful to Wild Wonders of Europe for enabling us to share these visual treasures with our millions of users.”
