Doesn’t work now

Must have updated automatically as apparently it was updated 3 days ago - the app now doesn’t work

OK, but can improve...

The basis of a good app is there, but needs much more functionality - need to be able to sort! - especially by rarity level, county etc - would like the functionality of the old website - would like it back on the website too! The old tabular format was really good and would make the app better, even if it only operated in landscape format.

One bird and basic details per single line would be easier to read, rather than as a double line per bird, that you could then expand if needed with the extra details. A toggle between double and single line view would be nice.

Maybe toggle off the bird icons, and replace by M, R, L and C for rarity level, that can then be sorted - icons are nice, but the more serious birder may appreciate information over the pictures - currently there is less info available, and it is all harder to use than the old website, which is a huge shame, but should be able to be fixed!

Have also noticed have had to log out and in again to get the app to refresh on occasion.

No notifications

Downloaded new version today, set up a filter, not getting any notifications, can't set filters within the app, preferred old version, won't be renewing subscription if it doesn't improve.
UPDATE, after using and reading notifications page properly, correct boxes checked, notifications are now working, But no sounds on alerts!
After trying to submit reports every time it says unable to submit please try later! Would also like individual counties to set alerts for, old version was far superior to this, very disappointed!!!!
No alerts since 11th September
iOS 11 now installed and has stopped some of my apps working, does this need updating????
