SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Want to get information about the San Diego Zoo or check its panda cam? There's an app for that.

The zoo Thursday unveiled a mobile Internet application for iOS and Android operating systems, which allows users to check in on the zoo's panda cam, watch polar bears, access photographs and videos and get information on various animals.

"This app gives people greater access to the zoo when they're planning their visit or spending a day with us," said Ted Molter, corporate director of marketing for San Diego Zoo Global.

"We expect that the mobile access to our live animal cams, combined with detailed descriptions and beautiful images, will add up to family-friendly entertainment and an educational resource that can be used again and again," he said.

The app can be downloaded by searching for "San Diego Zoo" at the iTunes App Store or Android Store.
