Worth the money !!!!!!
I think this is a great app to have and I think it's worth the price because all the information I need is in one place rather than looking through all my identification books :)
Could be better
You really need to know your butterflies before using this! Search would help. Identification guide might make it worth £9.99. Nice photos.
Disappointing for £9.99
I bought this for ID purposes in the field. However it's useless for this as the index of butterflies is so small you cannot find what you want unless you spend ages clicking on each one. Please sort this out!
