In the press release it says:

"At present, a special ultrasonic microphone add-on is required to record the bats, however the developers are looking for solutions so that anyone would be able to record the bats."

So maybe it's a bit too early to celebrate the app. Does anybody have an idea when the "ultrasonic microphone add-on" will be available and how much it will cost probably ?

Nevertheless a very useful and intersting development !

Kind regards, Jürgen
