Love this app, but...
I've given numerous positive reviews for this app. It's close to perfect.
However, just recently it now has some sort of spyware or something that automatically redirects you to download games from iTunes store. This happens constantly on my iPhone while I'm navigating on the findagravre mobile web site. I understand that this isn't actually directly related to findagrave's app, but it occurs only on my mobile device.
This is so irritating that I started using findagrave only on my PC. I have no desire at this moment to contribute any of my work to the site until it's fixed. My iPhone is my #1 tool I use when I do my volunteering. I hope it's fixed soon.
Also...any photo I upload through findagrave app will only appear as a "grave photo" no matter what. Even clicking on the other types of photos (person, family or other) will not work. They all appear as a grave photo on the site.
Finishing up our second large cemetery
My husband and I have added GPS to two large cemeteries now (about 6000 records so far) and love this app. Yes, it has its quirks, and there are improvements that we would like to see. But it does its essential function really well, which is to drop a pin with a very high degree of accuracy on a grave location. It would be nice to see the stats on our contributor page.
Love it, but....
I really loves this app at first but when I found my grandfathers grave site (I live on the other side of the country and was visiting) that was not listed in the app it suddenly wouldn't work!! So I was not able to put in the gps coordinates. I took photos of the graves I wanted to add and was able to add profiles later but the photos have still not been uploaded. They sit in the que. I've tried with wifi and data and still nothing...
