Has great potential

As an avid iNaturalist user, I was skeptical when I found this, but I was pleasantly surprised! Despite the design being pretty outdated, it has potential. I’m from Texas so it doesn’t quite have all the species I’d like to see, but I’m still glad to have found it! I’d definitely be willing to give 5 stars if this app gets updated.
