Please tell me improvements are coming...
First: I am not in Vermont. Honest. Why won't you let me change it?! 😤
Second: where are all the bugs?? I thought perhaps this app just had a crappy search function, or weird data that unnecessarily constricted search results - but after finding the scientific name of the moth I was trying to identify (by searching via description online, thank you Google) & then searching DIRECTLY for it, discovered it is nowhere in the app. I PAID for this app; I'm INCREDIBLY disappointed that the database of insects included is more the size of a 'free preview'. If the number of specimens is not going to increase, I'm deleting this app and I'd like my money back.
The whole reason I bought ALL your field guide apps is because
a) I'm tired of keeping all the hard copy field guides in the car all the time,
b) sometimes I'm nowhere near my car,
c) it's hard to carry all the books with me (kinda heavy), and
d) sometimes I'm out in the wilderness with no internet access, and wanted an app I could rely on when Google search was unavailable. This app isn't it. :-(
Not bad but... Then gotten worse
I like the app, though it needs increased functionality to allow for avid users to add to the marginally adequate database. I've had numerous sitings and there isn't a way to add them if they're not already present. This goes for all the Audubon apps, which I have purchased several. Spiders, moths, birds and others. Please improve
This latest version has been worse. The location is always wrong and you have to drag the pin all the way across the country because it doesn't save your location.
There are thousands of different spiders and this app has about 20 listed.
Good start, room for improvement!
I enjoy using this app with my kids. Great catalog for common insects out here in Utah. The map needs work, it should tap into the phones GPS rather than having to drag the pin across the entire map of the United States. Also you can only move the pin while zoomed in 300%, making the process of moving the pin rather annoying.
Keep the updates coming!
