I've used this app for a very long time. And I love the self accomplishments. However, there seem to be a couple things that could be improved. 1. In the drop-down selection for the order of challenges, having an option for "team challenge" to be on top would be helpful. 2. Regarding the battles, it could be because I'm not familiar with how they work or if it's an actual issue. Every time I click on the battles, there is a pop-up saying that no battles are available and to join a challenge.

The game itself is fun, albeit hard to win challenge. The app, however, is an entomologist's dream with how many bugs it has. 1. Notification settings don't work at all, the app does whatever it wants. You choose 0 notifications? You still get them. You want all of them? How about none, then? 2. Battles never works? What's the point then? 3. When a challenge is ending, refreshing becomes impossible and the app just hopelessly keeps trying to load but won't.

The app is nice, but I've, like a lot of others, noticed one very annoying problem. People uploading stock photos. Some even have a clear watermark on them. I'm no photographer by any means so not winning doesn't matter, I'm just glad people can see my pictures, but the stock images being used is unfair to those who really try and love what they do. Less stock and stolen work would greatly improve my ability to actually like the app. Unfortunately it just seems unfair and rigged because of this.
