Total fail

The underlying dataset for this app is Scotland so it will not work for soils anywhere else in the world! This should be mentioned by the developer upfront not buried at the end of the instructions for forwarding the photo. Waste of 15 minutes

Brilliant app! This application enlightens the worlds views on many different possibilities of soil, it enhances the IQ of anyone who simply opens the app. I feel so much smarter after haven gained this app and I feel at ease and relaxed when looking through the different variations of soil in my back garden. Who knew my garden had TWO different types of soil?! I heard Steven Hawking took inspiration from this app and possibly Jesus, who knows. It's so useful in many different ways, for example some soil got stuck in my toaster and it was starting to ruin it so I used this app to identify the soil and had it removed by a specialist. Anyways, much worth the buy and I am over the moon that it is free.
