Cool info

Downloaded in advance of our annual trip to SF. It is packed with a lot of cool info. Parts of it is slow to load at times. A disclaimer says the speed is dependent on your network connection, etc. I think it's the app, not the connection. Of course a slow network will make this even slower. Looking forward to trying it out though when we get up there.

Crashes a lot

I've been running into a lot of crashes when attempting to use the back button while going through the bird guide, in addition to the app simply going away at random intervals in other places.

I think that this is a good app with lots of very useful Information but the frequent crashes are a problem and need to be fixed.

Good start - but please fix it ....

A terrifically useful app - if only it could be made to stop crashing every time I input data

Also the app should be made to read the geotagging info from where the photo was taken as opposed to where the 'sighting' was uploaded - eps useful for locating plant material
