Thank you for the great work you are doing... but

My Children, grandchildren and I have enjoyed tracking sharks, turtles & sea lions all summer. We’ve loved learning about your work and all you are doing for our oceans.. However it’s disappointing when we want to see who’s popped up & where but can’t and are subject to a host of problems. We use a simple iPad. Your App has been a great learning tool for the little ones. They’ve picked out their favorite animals but are very disappointed when they can’t “check on them”! I installed google earth as advised to help with this problem.. it’s a best a hit or miss. I’d be glad to pay a small fee for a working app because our family have found it to be so interesting. Again thanks for all you are doing for our oceans creatures. Looking forward to fixes ;)

Love some aspects

I love the ability to track my favorite species, but there are definitely still some bugs that need to be worked out. I tried to find a way to contact the developer directly, but no contact information seems to be listed anywhere. I have set my app to track all species of sharks, but when I click on some of the pings, it will show a picture of a shark with turtle information underneath. Annoying, but the pros outweigh the cons. I love knowing where sharks have pinged and what species are currently in certain waters.

Issues connecting, but love app and what you do!

First, I love what Ocearch is doing and I enjoy this app a lot. I live in the Beaufort/Port Royal area and Ocearch has been in this area tagging sharks quite a few times, which I love following local sharks. However, I have been experiencing a lot of issues with this app as of late, continuously receiving an error message stating “issues connecting to the server,” making it so I cannot see any updated pings or information?
