ClimateWatch App for iPhone/Android

Calling all ClimateWatchers!

We are currently upgrading the app so that you can have a seamless user-friendly experience. As with all aspects of ClimateWatch and citizen science, we can't do it without you. We need your help in testing the beta versions we create so that our app works perfectly across all devices. If you're good with technology, we'd love any input or help from you as well.

Simply e-mail us at, or send us a message at the Feedback & Support link down at the bottom right of the page.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
