elephant iPhone App

The San Diego Zoo’s new promotion to help raise funds for their collaboration with Elephants Without Borders, to help support work to save elephants. You’ve probably heard the expression “the elephant in the room,” but how about the elephant in the iPhone? Now you can carry elephants with you, courtesy of our brand-new iPhone app. Created especially for us by The Blimp Pilots, creators of Koi Pond, the number one downloaded app of 2008, our animated, interactive app brings you a herd of elephants. You can direct them with a touch, provide food for them, get them to swim, hear them trumpet, and choose three different environments. The Elephant Odyssey iPhone app sells for 99 cents, but the best part is that 60 cents of each download benefits the San Diego Zoo’s elephant conservation work in Africa. Look for it in the iPhone app store!

Where does an elephant go? Anywhere he wants—including your iPhone or iPod Touch.

With the Elephant Odyssey application, you can keep tabs on roaming elephants in three settings—jungle, desert, and grasslands. Touch the trees or ground to leave food for your elephants, touch the elephants themselves to hear them trumpet. And you don’t have to scoop up after them.

Keep your own pachyderms in the palm of your hand. And don’t forget to feed them—they’ll remember.

This is a great app! But a few updates would make it even better.
Update ideas:

1.the option of having more elephants and baby elephants.
2. both of the elephants have long tusks, so if you could make one of them female that would be great
3.I like the birds. It would be awesome to see other little critters like meercats in the grassland, monkeys in the jungle, and lizzards in the desert.
4. A little more interaction with the elephants would be nice too
5. A running stream that is as good as the pond
But over all, great graphics I really like the way you can play with the water

I hope this app will be updated in the future, but it’s worth 99 cents if you like animals
