I am working with my friend who is a aspiring programmer to make an ant keeping app. The app has many features. Here is a list of features.

- groups: join others' groups and stay in touch with their ant keeping experience
- group chat: talk to people you choose to follow
- Global message board: get updates and polls to improve the app also participate in contests
- what's flying nearby: a list of the nuptial flights going on in your area
- online shop: buy merchandise store tokens
- merch shop: buy formacariums, ant gear, and merchandise
- leaderboard: every month, year, and week, gain different levels of tokens genus=>universal=>merchandise
- photo board: post photos, get likes, and get genus tokens
- possible market place: organize adoption and sales of ant colonies
- identification database: photos of possible queens are identified for species and genus the identifier earns tokens.

I will keep you guys posted on when this app is coming out and if any other features are added.
but be ready, it may be ready in January.
Currently keeping
Camponotus sp.
Solenopsis molesta
Tetramorium caespitum
Pseudomyrmex pallidus (multi queen colony, mates in captivity)

Nice! I really hope this gets to the app store, especially for Australia. I'd love to help you with some artwork/icon art.

Definitely take your time with it. Any unfinished platform without clear and enforceable rules will lead to black market trade.
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.

Don't worry about unauthorized trade. The market place will probably be released long after the official release. We are currently working on community and contests. I am trying to get product sponsorships right now for the merchandise shop. We are going to put it on kickstarter soon. Ill keep you guys posted.

We are adding a new feature as well
Ranks: show others your dedication to ant-keeping and support for the app.

I'd get sponsorship from actual companies. Ants invasion is simply a small YouTuber.
Hi I'm Jack, How are you?
