I have been using your brilliant app for a couple of years, I love it and use it all the time. I have just changed to iPhone, so I can’t use the app anymore. Do you have any plans to make your app available to Apple users? Thanks.

Admin reply: I have been working on a new app called ExotiKeeper (release for Android) using a framework that supports iOS and have been testing the app in an iOS emulator. Although the app seems to work using an emulator, I have yet to publish it to the App Store since the store have so many requirements. I'm working on them and HOPEFULLY be able to release the app in a couple of months.

Please make this app available for iPhone users as well

Admin reply: Working on it *fingers crossed* ;)


Good day! I am simply wondering if you are planning on converting your app so that it can also run on iOS. It seems absolutely amazing, and with already 60+ tarantulas in my care I would definitely use it :) I know (well, I dont actually... its probably a lot more than I think) that the amount of work required to do is probably astronomical, but I figured Id inquire anyway. Best regards, David

Admin reply: Thank you for the message.
We are currently porting the Tarantulas app to an new framework that supports iOS.
For now our priority is Android but we plan to try it our on iOS later on when we have a stable Android version.

Hello! Is there a way to install this app on Apple products? Id love to use it to keep track of my growing collection!

Admin reply: Hi, I don't know if that is possible on an iPhone. For mac computers, you can install an android emulator like Nox, Bluestacks or KoPlayer, not sure if they all have versions for mac though. And I don't know if notifications would work.

Could you consider adding to the Apple App Store? I’m stuck in this eco system and I want your app!

Admin reply: I'd love to make one for iOS since I've received a lot of emails and messages asking me about it, unfortunately I don't have the knowledge and resources to start working on an iOS app.


Is it possible to send the information for a tarantula to someone elses account? I am sending one of my MM to a friend and want them to have his record since being with me

Admin reply:
There's a Transfer and Receive data feature.
To send data, open the spider's information page, click menu and choose 'Send Data'.
Once successful, a transfer code will be displayed in a popup dialog which you need to give to the spider's recipient.
Now, to receive data, in the recipient's tarantula list, click menu and choose 'Receive Data'.
A dialog box will popup where s/he can input the transfer key.

Please note that images will not be transferred.

Dear friends, you created great app, I would have one suggestion - could not you make automatic sorting after doing some changes? I mean that if I have sorted by feed date and I add feeding to any of my T´s, the list is not updated automatically. Thank you. Petr

Admin reply: Thanks for the message.Unfortunately it is not possible.


I am trying to figure out how to print the labels with QR codes. I can generate the label through the app, but i cant figure out where they are saved or how to print them. any help is appreciated.

Admin reply: The labels should be in your sdcard/mytarantulas/qr folder.Thank you!

Hi. just wondering if you have any plans to add a synch feature? We love the app and use it on my husbands phone, but it would be great for us (as we both look after the Ts) to have it running & live on both our devices... Thanks

Admin reply: The app currently has an option to backup and restore from Dropbox.You can use that feature to sync your devices.

Hi there! I was hoping to know when this app will be available for IOS users? It looks amazing! And I’m hearing great things about it, but sad that I cannot use it yet. This would help so much! Thanks, Tara

Hello, this app is amazing! It really helps a lot! :) But, could you add an option, which would allow user to set Ts size showed as L or inch individually for each T? I mean, I have N. coloratovillosus, and she is 3 inches BL. But on the other hand, I have my P. irminia L5 and a few slings. But I can only set L or inch for all Ts, not for every single one. It would be really helpful!


Ill donate again, anything to get rud if the damn adds

This app works flawlessly on both my devices. Is there anyway you could add the option to sync between different devices? I have to update both devices since my son and I both take care of the tarantulas and we have to continously tell each other the feeding/watering info. Also would be nice if it backed up automatically online to Gdrive. I recently had to factory reset my phone and the backup and data were both wiped and I have to start all over again.

This a great app, I have used it for a year. However, your last update broke the ability to add pictures. I now get the same error every time, "Cannot edit pictures under 50 x 50 pixels", no matter what size image I try and use. Straight from the camera works though. Thanks Colin

Love the is a lifesaver. I would make a suggestion regarding the menu selection placement. There are times up in the right hand corner that they are unresponsive unless you do a small scroll of the main area, and a bit of separation between the settings, sort, search and batch menus would be really nice. Keep up the great work!
