Very handy app

An informative app, great functionality, lacks iPhone X full screen support through. 5 star once that happens. 👍🏼

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the comment! The app has been compatible with the larger phones since the 1.1 update.

This app is great for anyone interested in Aussie snakes! User friendly. Very handy for travelling around Australia.

Great app, probably worth $40 rather than 10.

Not sure what everyone's problem is? This is a great app! This is a succinct field guide that makes use of the i-device platform to provide numerous images of each species to show variation within a species. The high resolution photos are from some of Australia's best herp photographers.
The scale count feature is very handy when you've found a mashed roadkill or a slough. Beyond that, the "filter by location" function cross-checks your location (via iPhone GPS) and shows you only snakes that are likely to occur within your area.

A great app and cartainly among Australia's best field guide apps.
