Tracking Great Whites by iPhone

Expedition White Shark app

The Marine Conservation

Science Institute

has given iPhone

users an alternative to Angry Birds.

Scientists at the non-profit research center tagged 22 Great White sharks with sensors

so anyone with the "Expedition White

one-of-a-kind app sells for $3.99 at iTunes, and sales from downloads will fund


The Institute plans to release iPad

and Android versions of the app, so users of more non-shark-cage devices can feel closer to the carnivorous creatures without having to get up close and personal like this:
