Aabobl ,

Nice app!

I really liked this app. Good fish photos, good information, this will come along with me on my next Pacific dive vacation. My only negatives are things that the developer can probably fix quite easily:

First, when I am looking at Bony Fishes in the Reef Fishes 1 app, the icons for RF2 and RF3 at the bottom should jump me into the same category in the companion apps - Bony Fishes.

Second, when I look at a specific entry under one general category - for instance the pipefishes - if I close that entry,I should be restored to the same place in the higher level category where I was originally. I shouldn't have to scroll to refind my place in the list.

Otherwise, excellent!
