A very useful and entertaining app

Tho’ this is my first insect id app, I am very happy with it. My only problem is having a steady enough hand at taking the pictures.
Over time, as I read up on the bugs around me, I’ve become less squeamish about them. A few times I’ve needed to take a second picture to make sure it analyzes accurately.
I’m not a scientist or professional so I’m not looking for perfection but as I’ve cross checked with google about the bugs I believe this app is pretty spot-on.
I’ve had more fun with looking at the bugs around me that I’ve gotten some of my friends into it too.
I highly recommend this app for kids and adults to get to know the world of bugs all around us. 5 stars hands-down!

Not impressed!

Writing this review literally 20 mins after downloading. I received a taxidermy set of 10 or so rare insects for Christmas. Wanted some help IDing, the only labels on them are ambiguous species names and I was having difficulty finding info on google. Saw the positive reviews and thought this looked like a fun way to get info/ID bugs. didn’t work at all! I didn’t expect perfect ID, I have a loose idea what some of bugs are, but I know for a fact what the app said is 100% wrong. It told me this large iridescent beatle was a stink bug(WRONG) and then gave me 2 different IDs after that so it’s not even consistent with its incorrect identification. I tried a large type of cicada and it ID’d it as a butterfly! Not even close! The camera is confusing to take pics with too because it gives an option to crop but when it’s “analyzing” the picture you can’t tell if you should have cropped or not. In short—cool idea for concept...horrible execution! Would like my $5 back.

Good app!

I am an amateur naturalist with a strong interest in entomology. I understand the impossibility that a new app like this could identify insect specimens in every photo down to the species. I was pleasantly surprised that it was correct in over half of the twenty or so that I tested it on. It is a good tool, but users need to recognize it is only one tool. I hope everyone (including the creators) will be patient and I am looking forward to further developments in "Insect Identification". I see great potential and I think others will too. Keep up the good work!
