Superb app BUT “edit” simply does not work

Great app in as far as, quick look up, lots of choice of status and clear layout. BUT… if you make a simple mistake and you hit upload already, you’re in a world of pain because then you have to go to the website in a browser and when you click “edit this entry”, the next page freezes, the map disappears and if you do get to eventually change the entry, the submit button is completely dead (sometimes a refresh page works) When I managed to finally edit a spotted date, it still shows the wrong date in the app. When I finally managed to change a bird name, it still shows the wrong name in the app. If it’s doing the same at the collation end, I worry the wrong data is getting collected. The app is great, superb, but let us edit a mistake from within the app please.

Clear layout

This provides that the biodiversity in the UK can be easily kept on a record system. The app is easy to navigate and records are kept where you can keep track of what you have recorded. Uploading is simple to complete.

The only disadvantage is that when you upload to a site, I wish it would have an option which allows you to go back to previous sites so you don’t have to find the particular same site again.

It’s all good though. Great app which helps to maintain records of our biodiversity. I would recommend.

Fast and convenient recording

You can record pretty much any wild species of living organism. Handy for random sightings as it picks up gps automatically. Verification of records almost all depends on volunteers, so some groups/areas are verified fast but others may not be verified at all. However your records are saved for your own interest, or for verifiers in the future.

Some species groups (e.g. birds (BirdTrack), fungi, hoverflies) or geographic areas have separate recording systems, but it is possible to download data to pass on elsewhere later on.

Particularly handy for holiday records on the spot.
