Good app with annoying problems that make it very hard to use

I like my butterfly app for the most part, I have really gotten into identifying butterflies because of it. But it has my default location as Vermont.. Even though I allow the app access to my location and I have changed my location in the settings to NV. But every time I post a sighting I have to move that annoying marker across the United States. I know others who use the bird app and don't have this problem. Please fix it!!!

Nice database but...

I generally enjoy these apps, though some are woefully incomplete. I wish they had a means to add to the database after some specimen has been identified. Makes it more interactive. One thing that really irritates me is how it always puts my location in Vermont, which I live nowhere near. It wasn't like that when I first started using the app, but an update must have botched it all up. Please fix, as it is a P.I.T.A. to have to drag the pin to the correct location every time I post a siting.


Probably the most annoying issue is the default location set to Vermont. You can't seem to change it even your profile is correct. Moving that pin all the way down the east coast for EVERY sighting is ridiculous. To make matters worse you can't move the pin when your zoomed in on the map.
Second complaint is it doesn't remember prior useage like sorting on region. Either remember it or allow default settings.
