Emphasizing citizens as scientists, the myFOSSIL mobile app helps users engage with the practice of paleontology, connect with others who share their interests, and collaborate on fossil field trips, research, and more. Users follow groups focused around a topic, event, or location. They then connect with group members by sharing photos and updates about their paleontological activities. Group members may include any of the nearly 1,000 amateur and professional paleontologists currently in the myFOSSIL community. Directly from the field, users can upload fossil images to the myFOSSIL gallery to compare and discuss their finds and techniques. By adding in details about location, taxonomy, and geology, these fossil images become scientific records accessible to researchers and educators worldwide. Beyond specimens, users can also document and share paleontological methods, events, collecting sites, and more! Designed to facilitate a visually rich form of social learning, the myFOSSIL mobile app allows users to become part of the larger social paleontology community.

Need work but great app

The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because the app has a few bugs

We don’t know but we think it is a little good maybe because we looked at all the reviews and they were very good reviews we haven’t tried out your app but yeah but the only thing is that you have to register or login and every single time that we try to login it bails on us.

I was so excited to try this app, but it essentially does not work. I have tried to upload photos multiple times to no avail. Joining groups is virtually impossible. Geolocation forget about it. Interface looks good but app is literally nonfunctional. Please overhaul or else not worth anyone’s time.
