Having read mixed reviews and being skeptical from the start that this might be takinv advantage if free labor to make a quick buck, I was relieved to see that this is actually a pretty well made app. The user interface is very simple to understand and the settings allow for some good customization like whether pictures are saved to the phone memory or SD card. Ihad read that the search feature was broken, defaulting to Uraguay, but I didn't find that to be the case. Best of all, it is free.

Rough start but great after I understood the app. One hard thing to understand was that transcribing is separate from recording photo/gps. I was used to other apps. With this app you transcribe later at home. You can transcribe on the spot for more difficult to read ones, but don't waste time trying to transcribe them all in the moment. App could be a bit more user-friendly, but BillionGraves is such a great cemetery documenting tool. You can document cemeteries very efficiently.

Refuses to upload pictures!! Spent two hours taking pictures in remote area with no mobile network or Wi-Fi access, took over 90 photos and transcribed all of them at the time, then went home and connected to our broadband Wi-Fi and pressed "upload" button, app just spins and says uploading.... and it stops then gives no failure message and it hasn't been uploaded. Tried repeatedly for over 24 hrs with no success. The website or app has no troubleshooting or support section to work it out.
