Quick test suggests it's usable once you get used to some quirky user interface. You have to be able to find your location on a map with no facility to search for a place name or grid reference, quite tricky if you are not entering the data at or near the place the count took place, when you can use GPS (phone location). The default, pre-selected location is a field somewhere in Oxfordshire; it should be an overview map of UK that is ready to zoom in on, with no location selected. Maybe that Oxfordshire location will have a disproportionate number of sightings?
Irritating having to move location point. Always starts overa100 miles from my selected point. I did the bee count . Much easier quicker and more information back. Eg sitings in local area etc. Only carrying on as it's important. However I feel many would be put off by small issues which are really irritating every time enter app . 😔
Just installed on my HTC One M9 and had no problems using the interface will update you on my Lenovo Yoga 3 the map is a little erratic and you start up north which is fine if you live that way prewarning the southerners press hold the marker it will move when you've grabbed it correctly it took me a little while for the phone to catch up with the instructions or the app.. other than that excellent app
Being out in the sticks I had no problem with the location as it looks a tad unique from above! My only slight moan is that I'd like to be able to scroll back through my comments at the end to correct anything. Couldn't do that on my Moto G3.
Easy to use. Only problem is that there is no way of recording unidentified species. We saw 15 in all, mostly at a distance and difficult to identify beyond white or dark.
Did I miss an option to upload photos? Might help in confirming identification, especially if there is uncertainty. Would make for a more accurate count.
