Early Access app out now!
Pocket Pals is a free-to-play mobile app that connects you with wildlife. The app utilises GPS, allowing you to walk and locate digital animals based on their real-world habitats.
To learn about the wonderful animals, click on a Pal and photograph them in the mini-game. Focus on the animal as they move through the environment. Use a berry if they’re too fast!
Explore the virtual environments, including a woodland, wetland and the coast. Click on the Pocket Pals to learn about them, listen to them and bring them to real world through augmented reality.

Pocket Pals aims to engage young people with wildlife using a free-to-play app featuring charismatic virtual animals. Pocket Pals is made by young people for young people, in an attempt to make nature fun and relevant. We have developed an exciting method of experiencing nature by bridging nature and technology. Since the app is based on your real world location, you physically need to visit a woodland or wetland to collect Pocket Pals and learn about the real animals that inhabit those locations. Having an interest in the natural world should not be stereotyped as an 'old man's hobby', but instead be enjoyed by all, and especially our future generation.
