Ratings and Reviews
Lacking in species
The app itself is nice, but it is major lacking in species. It’s even lacking some common species of insects I see all the time. Is good for someone who is looking to find some simple basic insects around their house. Not useful to an entomologist like myself, especially not for the price. Buy a book online on North America insects. Quite a few books out there for about the same price or a little more that will serve you much better.
very pretty and useful app!!! i would like more angles of photos on the insects? most of them are from one angle and it's a little hard to tell what they are.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
