Ratings and Reviews
Needs a few improvements
Needs a few tweaks. When I’m asked if I want to “share this whale sighting”, I can’t move on unless I “copy to clipboard.” No option to cancel, even when I don’t want to.
Also, looking at offers for tours - they deliberately keep their prices so well hidden till the last minute that it’s annoying trying to compare costs, to the point I give up.
Would be nice to include day tours and boat trips in Sydney. Not only multi-night trips that require hours of driving.
And yes the app seems to crash a lot. Annoying
But it has great potential as is a good resource
Crashing with iOS 10.
This app has been working reasonably well until iOS 10. Now it crashes every time I try to access it. Can’t upload data, can’t review sightings. Needs urgent repair.
App crashing since update
Great app but it’s now crashing since your latest release. Would also be great to just get updates of whale sightings that are in the vicinity of the device location?
