Perfect app after your hike in a Florida park
Downloaded it mostly for the listing of parks while traveling around Florida. It can highlight parks based on your current location & link to your google maps app seamlessly. I was satisfied already, but then I realized that we could identify some flowers that we had photographed during our hike earlier in the day; WOW!
We matched 2 out of 3 flowers in a few minutes.
Great; not sure if our tax dollars paid for it, but well worth it. I will watch out for other apps by this developer.
Very good, but needs some work
I love the Florida Birding Trail and really wanted this to be a killer app. However, I have found one of the main features I was hoping for to not be working. In particular, you can't select sites that you want to add to my stuff even though there is a spot for it under my stuff. Also, it would be really helpful to be able to write notes about the birds and sites one places ini my stuff.
This is an incredible free app. Had to read the how to instructions on this one. Really appreciate that many of the butterflies also include a photo of their prior stage in life, be that of their earliest stage and/or the caterpillar stage, and all in one app. Thank you!
