One big problem

I was just about to upload my 8th observation and then it said create an account I already had an account but I did anyway once I did that it restarted me to the create an account menu I would be happy if you fixed the glitch.
P.S This app is still fun

Ehhhhhhhththtg ,

Great but wish it’s more social

This app is awesome. Only one suggestion! Wish there was a profile page for each user & ways to follow accounts / track what your friends are posting. I think it would be cool if there was a more social media component. But overall I have learned so much using this app!!! Definitely recommend!
