Bzzz Top idea .. I have three nests out back of house, two new this year. So impossible to record what appears to be maybe 12,000 bee's a day with this. Be good to be able to record nest locations and also combine that data with current options ;) until then I give up !
Brilliant idea, but shaky execution. For example, if you want to record a sighting, the list of bees is a mishmash of about 4 or 5 common bumblebees and the rest of the list comprises of what I see as being ultra-rare ones! It would've made more sense to me to start the list with the 10 or so most common bumblebees whilst keeping honey bees etc separated by a small page break or title heading. Also, according to the pretty comprehensive info I've received from the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, your drawing of a white - tailed bumblebee actually shows a garden bumblebee or maybe a heath bumblebee. Not very user-friendly even though the intentions behind this app are laudable.
Great idea but. .. I find I can't recognise bee types quickly enough - the app gives no guidance on how to distinguish bee types or even which ones are more likely in a particular setting. Great if you're already an expert!
Good app The only thing I'd l like to change is to have an 'unknown bee' option for if you didn't quite have enough time to identify which type of bee you saw.
Installed app. Nothing Happened! Useless
Top quality app Excellent quality photos from the camera on this app. We need an app like this for all species.
