What's New in Version 1.4.2
Several bug fixes related to the iOS 7 update.
Best digital field guide to wildlife tracks by far
I am a professional wildlife tracker and wildlife tracking teacher with over a decade of experience in the field.
This is by far the best digital field guide to wildlife tracking that I have seen. It was obviously created by a highly qualified and very knowledgeable wildlife tracker.
It is full of numerous high quality photographs. The content is really good and it is well laid out. I like having the ability to look up track photographs, range information, animal behavior, and even mammal skull photographs all in my phone.
I find myself using this app often while out in the field, as a track photo reference for my students, and to look up information on range and habits of specific species.
Though this app is not cheap, it is well worth the money, and is half the price you would pay for a comparable quality paper field guide.
All of the other wildlife tracking apps that I have seen are horrible. They are full of mistakes and even in some instances made up false information. They may be cheaper, but what is the point of purchasing a reference app such as this if it contains incorrect or misleading information?
I highly recommend this app for anyone interested in wildlife tracking, animal behavior, or nature.
Makes Track Identification Easy!
This application is extremely handy! I've used it in the field many times to identify tracks and scat. It's so much more efficient and useful than a guidebook, allowing me to quickly correlate the tracks I see with the animals that left them.
I highly recommend this app to hikers, campers, naturalists, and anyone else who encounters animal tracks and wants to know which animals they are crossing paths with. This app is brilliant!!!
iTrack Wildlife review
This app, for the price, could be more inclusive.
When compared to current e-books on tracking, they have a lot more content for less money.
It has over 60 of the common wildlife species, but would be more useful with many more.
It works well on the iPhone, but using an iPad, it stays locked in portrait mode and does not currently support landscape view.
If the developer can keep adding content and provide landscape view for the iPad, then I would up my rating to. 5 stars and it would be worth the price.
