Very Much Improved Now
I originally had a lot of issues with the new version. However, you guys have gone a long way to fixing the problems and making this once again the best birding app available. Especially great is your fixes to the plate resolution issue and bringing back, and improving, the ability to add user pictures. Also, the user noted function is great! Thanks for your hard work and I look forward to even better improvements in the future!
iPad version now won't open
While I usually use my iPhone, and that still works for this app, it crashes on my iPad when I try to open it. This is sad since I really do wish to use it from both.
Both of my Peterson Field Guides stopped opening sometime unknown to me and my iPad. I was in the field on the Christmas Bird Count and neither would open. Was it the upgrade to iOS9.x or the last upgrade of the Peterson's?
