There's Now A 'Shazam' To Help People Identify Animals And Plants In Nature

Anyone else have a craving to play Animal Crossing all of a sudden? Well, this new app called Seek, is essentially the same idea Animal Crossing has done and what Shazam has done for music. 

Ever wondered what was that plant you came across on your hike the other day? Or what type of critter you saw inside your house? Of course you have -- because we all have! Imagine not knowing what poison ivy looks like and being able to detect it when this app! This brilliant app now gives you all that knowledge in the palm of your hand!

That's pretty wild
