Functional, but needs improvement. I am able to submit records because my home/back button tool bar on my android screen is able to minimize when not used. Swipe features on ones phone would also allow for easy navigation. Definitely not the most streamlined, but it gets the job done faster than sending it to my computer to do it from there, so, success!

Still getting used to it, but I'm having a similar problem to what I've read in the comments. The app covers up the buttons on the bottom of my Android that allows me to switch between apps (as well as the home button). This app would be way more intuitive if I could quickly flip from my gallery to where the photo of the bee is, to the list the app provides.

The app was great in 2019 and I frequently used it to report my bumble bee sightings. However it updated in 2020 and I can no longer use it. The buttons for confirming my submission are located at the bottom of my screen where my android phone has its back and home buttons. Therefore when I click "select" my phone takes me back to the previous page and I cannot confirm my selection
