Last update introduced a few search issues. App is still quite nice but since the v4.3.9 update the app no longer remembers last used State/province or month. Also the "Name Search..." text entry field no longer indicates that it has been selected as it had before with a blinking vertical cursor.
Such potential I started to do a detailed review of what is wrong with this app and how to fix it but there are too many flaws to enter them all here and be constructive. Whoever is doing the programming forgot the cardinal rule of app development .... do a flow chart for every function and see where you end up. There are too many circular references in this app and that makes it non intuitive. I know there is an August update coming and can only hope they fix the really obvious fails. It really has great potential.
For free it's great If I had paid for this then I might have some quibbles but as a free app it is very good and likely to improve.
For some reason It keeps popping up saying there is an error every time I go on it, if it gets fixed in promise to give 5 🌟, I'm a big fan of the Audubon society :)
Can't argue with the value for money Found this really useful, and it's free - there could perhaps be improvements (e.g. paintings rather than photos), but given the cost of the competition, it's a no brainer.
