What's New in Version 1.9
Minor bug fixes
Poor quality - updates not tested
I have all the Audubon apps, and I have to say while the content is by no means complete, it is adequate. However, I see no concerted effort to improve listing completeness.
In addition, functionality is marginal. You can expect performance failure and new problems keep emerging with new revs. Today, the Insects app would not let me assign a sighting to a list, even though the lists are present from previous sightings and the other apps are working fine. This is a high $ app, so you should expect high performance and it's just not there.
I also recently had an issue requiring tech support. The tool automatically assigned an invalid location from the location service that doesn't exist in my state. Tech support response: go fix it on line , instead of fixing the utility and advising it's fixed.
I downloaded this app to use for insect ID for horticultural and home purposes and have found it very useful. it gives you several ways to figure out how to identify an insect. example: shape, family, etc..
Not bad but...
I like the app, though it needs increased functionality to allow for avid users to add to the marginally adequate database. I've had numerous sitings and there isn't a way to add them if they're not already present. This goes for all the Audubon apps, which I have purchased several. Spiders, moths, birds and others. Please improve.
