Audubon Guide: Mammals of North America
It's too bad this is the only available iPad guide for mammals of N. America because it's a poor one. A sample of the problems: 1. The Ringed Seal, a common N. American species, is not included. 2. It has very few animal sounds even though many are available elsewhere. For example, it has no sounds for the Red Fox. 3. There appears to be no key for the colors on the range maps. 4. In reading about a mouse species, I found a reference to the Deer Mouse, but there is no Deer Mouse in the guide. I have reported the Ringed Seal omission many times over the years to no avail. We deserve better from something with the Audubon name on it.
I don't want to sign up for an account. Don't ask every time!
Disappointed every time I use it
I continue to be disappointed with all of the iPhone Audubon guides every time I try to use them. My main disappointment is their inability to include all of the species/distinct subspecies in the app. It seems every time I try to use the mammal or reptile app, what I am looking for isn't there. Today's example- a ground squirrel in Idaho. I read the description on the Colombian Ground Squirrel and they mentioned a couple of similar species in the write up- the Idaho Ground Squirrel and the Washington Ground Squirrel. When I went to look at these types I discovered that neither is included in the guide!! They reference two types in the description of another species and then don't include those in their app??? Really? This has been a long-standing and consistent problem with both of the Audubon apps I have (mammals and reptiles). Blotched water snake? No (although it warrants a mention deep in the plain-bellied write up, but no pics). Red-tailed Chipmunk? No! Harris' Antelope Squirrel? Not in earlier versions of the app, although it has now been added. So they are improving, albeit slowly. At some point these folks will sit down and make this an all-inclusive, comprehensive app that will cover everything one might run across.
And their photos need upgrading. For example, there are many beautiful photos of male elk with impressive racks. But no good pics of females. Guess what guys? Users are likely to run into females by themselves too.
I'll continue to use the app because there are no other options, but I feel I have to point out the problems with the app. There is so much potential for this to be a great app, but the developers have just done a poor job.
