Link Issues

This is a great app that our entire team is using to find soil types but the OSD link does not work. This is really discouraging as it costs us extra time to copy and paste the link and retrieve the information through extra steps. Could you please check this out and fix the link if possible. We are trying to get our entire agronomy group and sales reps to use this information and when it doesn't work properly they choose to skip the information or make a guess at it. Thanks

Excited about this app

Have not yet played with the app but am excited that it exists. Will update feedback once I experience the app. But if it's anything like the web version, it should be spectacular since I use it for my permaculture design business.

Great tool

Excellent teaching tool and great for anyone traversing the country and wanting to know what soils are underfoot. I took the train from Lincoln, Nebraska to Chicago and the whole journey soil web informed me on the soil series. Great! what is next: maps, block diagrams?
Thanks Dylan for making this.
