Location is nearly useless
As with all the Audubon apps, this app doesn't take advantage of your location even though it knows where you are. If you try to do a search on the Northwest, it includes California even though California has its own category. This greatly and unnecessarily increases the possible species for what you're looking at. You don't have a settings option to always use one region or to use "my current position". I bought this app because it was the only one available. As a biologist I have a pretty good idea how to winnow down the list of possible species. If you'r not a biologist or have a good background in natural history, you're likely to find it difficult to figure out what you're looking at.
Can't Post Sightings
I love this app! It's so cool to have a complete guide right here on my cell phone for quick access during activities like hiking.
The only thing is that when I go to post a sighting, it is EXTREMELY difficult. The app becomes unresponsive, and if I do manage to start inputting info for the sighting, it's so difficult to finish it. I have to resort to looking for the animal first and then choosing "add sighting" instead of going straight from the main/home menu. And sometimes that doesn't work. I wanted to add more but I stopped at one because it was such an annoying process. PLEASE fix this
Something I'd like to see
I've noticed a few listings for species all grouped together under one common name. I think this gets confusing when it comes to range and trying to find a certain species and subspecies. For example, the "common kingsnake". I'd like to see the individual kings listed out as separate listings. That way the range for the California king vs the eastern king can be better understood, for example. They are different animals and even have different scientific names, so why group them all together?
