Easy to use and makes all the difference when it comes to identifying. Books are great, but apps get updated and have more photos. It’s a must have for anyone who is out and about hiking or even for someone who would just like to identify butterflies in their garden. 100% worth the money.
Would have given this five stars because like the book quality of photos and info fantastic. However, the searches need tweaking and improving. E.g. while having KZN region selected and couldn’t get a smoky orange tip to come up in the search. A few more issues like this fixed would make this great.
What a fabulous addition to butterfly identification and distribution. Stunning photos and text and love the option to compare similar species. Can’t recommend it highly enough.
