This is such a helpful app. I use it frequently. It works offline and I've never had any issues getting it to run. However, while scrolling through the lists of species sometimes I accidentally end up hitting something and scrolling all the way to the bottom. I'm not sure why this is happening, I think it's some sort of issue with the touch function of the app. Please consider fixing this issue. Please also keep adding species and add some more photos of the existing species, e.g. of juveniles.
