Wants me to pay again

I paid for this app previously but when I changed my phone it won’t download unless I pay again! Seems like rip-off merchants to me. Good app but not worth £36.

No ability to compare species

It's a great little app and I'm really pleased with it. It works well on my iPhone 6 s plus. I just wish it had the ability to compare two species side by side, like the Butterfly Guide.
