Pay if you want it to be worthwhile
The free version has very limited usefulness. It’s really just to give you a sense of what the app does. If you want free, you will be disappointed.
The paid version, however, is pretty good. Really helped us keep the little ones engaged on a recent bush trip.
Waste of Your Time and Effort
The app only covers a small selection of animals in the freeware edition. The information provided on each of the animals is very limited and you will be able to get much more with a quick internet search.
Really not what I expected when I down-loaded the app. A quick delete did the trick.
Lots of information
Great app, easy to you and packed with information. Videos and animal calls are great.
