Good but not 5 Stars
I like this app for being able to find things quickly by geographic region. However, once you choose a geographic region, you can NOT switch to a different region by picking it from the region menu. That feature is broken. The only way to look up something in a different region is to close the app, reopen it and choose the different region. Please fix this.
I work for a nature preserve in pennsylvania and find this app to be extremely useful in the field. It's nice to find out what certain things are in a relatively short amount of time on those rare instances you run into something you haven't seen before. Nice.
Stopped working on iPhone 5s after update
I loved this App, still would if I could open it. After iOS update it no longer functions, nada. So sad, when it functioned I used it every week and would have given it 4 stars, I live in an area with fresh and salt water rivers and marshes so much wildlife to appreciate. I'm giving it one star, which is generous since it does not function, it's just taking up space while I hope for an update that makes it functional again.
