Pest Identifier App
iOS 6.1 +
Upon opening the Pest Identifier App, users are welcomed with a bland page offering information about Arizona Pest Control and ways to contact them. When a user selects the AZPest.com button on the opening page, they are presented with the Company’s website.
If a user clicks on the Gallery tab, they are presented with the app’s existing database of insects in a table view. Nevertheless, the gallery does include pictures of insects sorted by category so that users can attempt to identify an insect without paying for an expert’s opinion. Upon clicking on a pest in the galley, the user is taken to a page that offers information regarding the particular insect’s length, eating habits, sounds, appearance, and additional information.
If a user doesn’t find their insect in the database, they can click the middle button on the tab bar to take a picture of the insect and send it to pest identification experts for a fee of $2.99. After taking the picture, users are prompted to input their contact details, and are then taken to a payment page. The app currently promises to reply to such paid insect identification requests within 48 hours Monday – Friday from 8 AM to 5 PM PST.
When users click on the Blog tab of the app, the Company’s insect articles are presented, and a mobile browser is launched if an article is selected.
The app also includes a social media page in which users can access reviews in addition to the Company’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
