G70%
by G####:

It is not accurate at all! A few things, it uses very outdated names, pictures may not accurately represent taxa, and the number of species available is rediculously small.

S70%

Very useful app

A70%
by A####:

Would be FIVE STARS IF THEY FIX EXTERNAL STORAGE FOR MARSHMALLOW!!! I LOVE this app and I have a ton of space on my SD card, but even though I choose external storage it still puts it in internal storage and won't let me move it! Therefore I can only download the data files!

R70%
by R####:

I love the idea & design but I haven't been able to download or see any data. I hope it's a problem from my end.

J70%
by J####:

Excellent for those of us that need wi-fi to access the net. Kudos for your hard work. Would really be great if we could use external memory in latest iterations of android io. Bird sounds in memory would also be useful.

Be nice if it was completely free, but it's a good app.

C70%

Grat

N70%
by N####:

This app is a great concept, but it's just a compendium of lists with associated images. My biggest issue is that the images are not even associated with the list's region and so does not account for localized variations within species. Anyways, this is basically just a nice way to look at Wikipedia lists through an app with a good user interface.

H70%

As a photographer i found it very informative, so much data packed, kudos to the team

K70%

Learning more on this site

X70%
