We all need to get involved

This app is a great tool that we can all use to fight back against all sorts of pollution. Just make sure your location setting is ON for your device AND your camera app before you photograph the pollution, and know that when you upload the picture the information in your photograph will be used to help our planet.

Such a great idea and tool but needs tweaking

I am a huge fan and supporter of Plastic Patrol, and I so badly want this app to succeed, but I have to admit that we have done several litter picks recently and not uploaded them simply because this app is really finicky to use and tedious. It takes almost as much time to enter each brand and item than it does to pick them up. It would be much easier if you could manually enter quantities rather than having to click the + sign to count the number of items. The + button is tiny and often doesn’t register the count. I should just be able to choose a brand/item from a drop down/scroll menu and then manually type in the number, or even a scroll option for quantity. When you’re doing 100+ item litter picks like we do, entering the + sign 50 times is frustrating.

Won’t work on my phone

Love the idea of this and think it very important, but having downloaded it to my iPhone, despite repeated efforts I cannot get it to work, nor can any of my family members, aged between27 and 68 in various parts of GB, who have downloaded to their iPhones. I contacted planet patrol for help and they sent me a link so I could complete the water watch survey, but said they felt mine was a one off problem. Just looked at my Planet Patrol App again - still no sign of anything to do with waterwatch on it. I don’t feel confident I’ll be able to take part in future surveys - although I am keen to.
