An identification guide for the shore-fish fauna of the Caribbean and adjacent areas. This App is the second of a set of 2 portable identification guides for Apple touch-screen devices that will cover the shore-fish faunas of the tropical American marine regions on both sides of the central American Isthmus: the Tropical Eastern Pacific, the Greater Caribbean (Caribbean and adjacent areas).

This stand-alone App, which was adapted from the 2012 website Shorefishes of the Greater Caribbean: online information system (www.stri.org/sfgc), works independently of the internet.

• Complete English and Spanish interfaces. Connect to the Spanish interface by setting Spanish in the language preference of your device.

• Covers 1,693 species, with over 8,200 images to help identify them. Users can select to work with either the entire fauna, or with the Diver Group, a subset of 919 species that could be found within SCUBA diving depths on or adjacent to reefs in different parts of the region.

• A page for each species includes a detailed description (with information on its form, color, size, habitat and depth range), 1 or more species images (primarily photographs), key-features that distinguish it from similar species, a link to a page displaying similar species, and a map of its regional range.

• Browse among alphabetic lists of species and species-within-families, changing name-sorting between scientific and common (first or last) names.

• A search engine uses any combination of generic common names, location, habitat, and fish features (shape, color pattern and colors) to identify fishes.

• A glossary of scientific terms is linked to each species page.

• The notebook module allows (1) review of recently visited species pages and (2) construction of lists that record observations about fishes. New lists can be assembled from scratch or by making blank copies of existing lists. Lists are organized in folders, and are downloadable by email.

• The iPad version includes glossary images, and high resolution range maps with dots indicating site records.

• New for this version: option to work with either the entire fauna or a diver subgroup; 94 more species and almost 50% more images; habitat added to the fish ID search engine.

The Peacock Room Comes to America
The Peacock Room Comes to America

Free
Explore artist James McNeill Whistler’s famed Peacock Room in the Smithsonian’s Freer Gallery and learn about its dynamic, cosmopolitan history in this fully interactive, visually stunning app. A scrolling panorama offers a virtual tour of the room as it is installed today. Tap on the paintings, ceramics, or decorative elements for more information and related multimedia content, such as audio guides by Freer|Sackler curators. An interactive timeline illuminates the room’s changing appearance as it moved from Victorian London to Gilded Age Detroit and finally came to rest at the Freer Gallery, where it has been on display since the museum opened in 1923. The app includes images of more than 250 Asian ceramics, detailed views of the room’s architecture and decoration, and a rich selection of archival documents and photographs. You can also curate your own installation by selecting pots to display on the Peacock Room sideboard, and then create a postcard of your design to share with friends. In addition, you can watch a video that takes you behind the scenes of the recent reinstallation. To learn more, visit the Freer|Sackler website at asia.si.edu and “The Story of the Beautiful: Freer, Whistler, and Their Points of Contact” at peacockroom.waynestate.edu.

The app was developed by Arcade Sunshine Media (arcadesunshine.com). Content was created by Freer Gallery curator Lee Glazer, with additional contributions by Maya Foo, Louise Cort, Massumeh Farhad, Howard Kaplan, Andrew Hare, and Julian Raby, the Dame Jillian Sackler Director of the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery and Freer Gallery of Art. Jane Lusaka, Joelle Seligson, and Nancy Eickel edited the text. Generous support was provided by the Mr. and Mrs. Raymond J. Horowitz Foundation for the Arts, Inc. Unless otherwise indicated, archival images and photographs of objects are from the Freer Gallery of Art and Freer|Sackler Archives, Smithsonian Institution; photos by Neil Greentree, Robert Harrell, and John Tstantes.
