In addition to an ever-growing guide to plant and animal species, it also includes a detailed map, helpful insights, and fun tours and activities to help jump start your explorations.
Finally, with the help of the Sightings feature, it invites you to actively engage with the park and to share your experiences with other park goers and naturalists.
What's New in Version 1.2
Minor update to resolve an issue with Field Guide categories and data failing to appear.
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.
Great photos and descriptions of plant and wildlife. As an amateur naturalist I could enjoy the park for weeks on end with this app. Truly great!
