Good for navigating paths that’s about it.

The main reason I personally downloaded this app was for the plant identification feature rather than the walk and maps. This part it does really well with good route details and tracking of the progress.
The native plant identifier doesn’t work very well at all. It usually times out after scanning the image of the plant and says to try again later. This is with a 4G connection as well.
The other detrimental point is the constant nag to have the app tracking your position in the background. If I’m using the app fine, if I’m not then it doesn’t need to be active. Get rid of the nag notification and improve the plant identification and the app would be a winner.

Hi Jasperj_au, thanks for the feedback! We've identified a bug with the plant image upload which causes this timeout on a small number of devices and this will be fixed in the next two weeks.

Accuracy wise we're working on this as hard as we can but getting enough data has proven more difficult than we expected. We're still making small improvements here so it should be getting better all the time.

The app shouldn't nag about location and the only time it should run in the background is if you've explicitly started a track (and it shouldn't nag!). If you're seeing it then we must have a bug, we'll review the tracking code again to ensure we eliminate it.

Thanks again for the feedback and we'd love you to try again once we've released the next update.

Good so far- please add pet info!

Great idea, good features, one thing that would be REALLY appreciated would be info on which tracks are dog friendly and which are not, as a lot of people like to walk the tracks with doggos in toe. Thank you!

Thanks for the feedback! As owners of four legged furry friends ourselves, we've got this marked on our roadmap and hope to have the feature available soon.
