Can you please update the app to include the backgrounds that the old app used to have? That way you have the choice to use the camera or a preset background, since using the camera drains your phone battery really quickly and takes away from the calming feeling the old app gave. If you could do that, this app would definitely be five stars. Right now, however, due to only being usable with the camera, I just can't rate it that. Please, please update the app and make it usable with preset backgrounds or your own camera roll pictures. That would make it amazing.

Great! But.....

This app is truly amazing!😄 But the problem is.. I'm trying to get closer to the butterflies and they just go even further. Also, you need more types. I still think the app is great though. 👍🏻


Doesn't work well

No matter what I do it won't let me see any butterflies nor will it let me take pictures of the ones in my yard. I work at at a botanical garden, we have a large butterfly house so I was hoping to be able to identify the unusual ones we have. I'll keep looking and hopefully not waste more money.
