Ratings and Reviews
A great resource - super-helpful tech support
I had trouble (mostly my fault, not being a tech-weenie) getting everything loaded, and the app creator (in Austria!) was super-helpful, spending more than 2 hours on chat with me! The app will be a great resource on my upcoming (fifth) visit to Costa Rica. It could use more detail and is missing a few species I know should be included, but it also has a huge species list, very useful for those biota for which I don't carry a field guide, since I'm mainly a birder.
Very little information
It has pictures but very little information. Any field guide that depends on Wi-Fi especially in Costa Rica is worthless! If you want information you have to connect to Wikipedia.
Can’t get it to open. Can’t choose 0 stars.
Although it indicates it woks on my iPhone 6+, once it loads it freezes and then closes. No idea what it’s like as I can’t get past the front page.
