The initial intended use of this app is to log animals behaviour during field work. A number of animals can be associated to specific behaviour types at specific times. The data are uploaded to a server, but also cached on the device if the net connection should be down. It is possible to copy the cached data to the clipboard or into an email.
The app may be used in all cases where some classes should be associated to some group at a given time. E.g. the classes could be brands of cars and the groups different colors. When one see a White Ford, one can then drag "Ford" to "White"and then press confirm to have the registration uploaded. The confirm button should be pressed within 20 seconds after the classification is done. Up to 20 seconds after "Confirm" is pressed, the registration may be undone, that is, an undo message is sent to the server. The observation data and possible undos are also stored locally to avoid data loss if the mobile phone is outside coverage.
