What's New in Version 3.4
• Fixed 'Posting Failed' Error
• Improved Stability
• Bug Fixes
Limited Coverage and Hard to Use
Tried this out on a trip to the Sonoran Desert. The coverage there was limited - all the flowers for which I couldn't name the genus were not in the manual. Search by scientific name doesn't work at all, as far as I can tell. And many species have only a single photograph which shows only the flower. If you don't have botanical training, you won't be able to match up the leaves to the descriptions and if you do you already know all these plants. With all these Audubon guides, there are bizarre popups that appear from nowhere and require closing the app to dismiss. Better than nothing, though, and the pictures are handy when you are trying to communicate with people who know nothing about botany.
Latest version doesn't install correctly
While this app used to work fine, the most recent update that I downloaded has made this app unusable. I reported the problem to Green Mountain via a helpdesk email. A week after doing that still no one has gotten back to me. I recontacted them, still no answers! Disappointing when this is a paid app. While the app did reappear as something to update via a download, nothing changed. It still shows "installing" and is unusable after numerous sync attempts.
Needs different way to browse
Frustrating to use. Need to be able to drill down faster to a few candidate species without knowing botanical family. Should be able to use color, then shape, then key features. If the app ever does use color as a main category, pinkish purple flowers, for example, should show up if you choose purple or pink.
