Very cool! Just downloaded it. Although I really need some pockets with zippers so I can actually bring my phone on coasters to collect the data.

A zonkey is a cross between a zebra and a donkey.

I just want to point out that those asking for an Android version, it's not something super easy like clicking a button to save as!

The reason apps are much easier for iOS is that there is ONE apple operating system (sure there are versions, but you just make it for the latest version and make people upgrade!). When it comes to developing, testing, and making an app work for an "Android phone" there are literally HUNDREDS of different ones and it's really hard to make the app work right on a lot of them.

^ Most android users I know (including myself) primarily use the Google play store so that would be the easiest place to post it to for the most downloads.

That has nothing to do with what Elissa said. Not every app is available on every phone. Most important may be working with 99% of all Android phones. But they have to be programmed for working with different phones and UIs

Apple has stricter rules to get an app approved as well which aids in them working better across Apple devices. Can’t wait to try this out. Great idea!

The best thing about TPR is the donkeys.
