We adapted our popular Spectator GO! software to the Apple® iPhone and the iPod touch. Now you can collect observational data with your fingertips.
You can collect data for several subjects at the same time, define an unlimited number of events, behaviors and parameters you want to acquire, define additional modifiers for each behavior, define text and number input fields and log your position if required. Spectator GO! for the iPhone and iPod touch is extremely flexible and powerful. It can be used for any kind of data acquisition that you normally do with paper and pencil.
How does the Spectator Go! software work?
The Spectator GO! software consists of two parts. A client program running on your computer, where you create configurations and analyze data and the program for the iPhone/iPod touch that is used for the data acquisition. Data between the program on the computer and the iPhone/iPod touch are transferred via a wireless network connection.
