No wobbles for new Tasmanian jellyfish app

A chance meeting on a plane has resulted in the development of a mobile application, The Jellyfish App, which has sparked international interest.

Tasmanian app developer Neil Johnson speaks to Brian Carlton about the safety information identification app, which allows users to identify which jellyfish are located where, and whether they are dangerous.

“This thing has gone ballistic…it’s now been downloaded in over 17 countries…we’ve had over 100,000 people…hit the app site in 6 days,”

“This is the only app that has the world’s leading authority at your fingertips,” Mr. Johnson says.
