creating the account is the worst part

Setting up an account is very much like doing taxes. I stopped when I found myself tempted to tap ok just because there was no way to back out. Like partnering with organizations I never heard of. Now I remember why I didn't get involved years ago.

Finally a data entry app that I can trust!!

I am a Nature's Notebook observer and I have been on the staff for many years, but never used our mobile app in the past because I did not trust the technology. I learned as a young scientist to ALWAYS make and keep a hard copy of your data in case the digital version vanished in a computer glitch, so I have used paper data sheets and subsequently entered the data online all this time. This updated version of the app not only is easier to use, but it also allows you to review the data you just entered and verify that is has synced with the database. I was cautious the first few times, but now I have abandoned my paper and pencil method for good!

Just downloaded

Are we going to be able to see our data fr the old app on this app? It’s not showing up now.
On my site animals spp list, some of the animals’ complete nane is not appearing. Just the first word appears. Ex. ‘White’.
‘White’ what?
I would like a spot to enter environmental data, such as temp, clear/cloudy/raining/snowing, wind - mph & direction,
I’m on an iPhone 7 Plus

For whatever reason my phone has issues w this
I’m going back to the old app
