Poor attempt at new & improved app A fresher look than the old app but fed up of the twitter feed and it has very few of the functions of the old app. They say these functions will be released soon but why not get it working fully first. Not great 😠
Retrograde This version is much less convenient, more difficult to use. I have no interest in Twitter whatsoever, but which seems to have dominated the thinking behind this version. We used to have data on the screen, not a huge blank when Twitter is turned off. This version is certainly less useful and convenient, and I really don't feel I want to be bothered with it. Why bother contributing to the national database when it's been made difficult. I shall probably give up on it. Why can't I see recent records for instance?
Improved Appearance - Reduced Functionality Lots of tiny buttons, which i can't easilly hit with my fingers; adding casuals is slow and painful; no features for searching for local species. Entering lists takes longer than with the previous version, though has proved a step forward when entering non-uk sightings. Still rely on my notebook as weather conditions often make it difficult to operate the phone in the field. Awaiting the next version.
New version is pants! Not intuitive like last version. Default location was in the wrong place!! Couldn't check 2016 data, 2 days ago!!! Also wrong location logged. Why change? To search (check) data had to add United Kingdom every time. Clunky and loss of functionality.
Don't like not being able to upload casuals so probably won't use it as much as the legacy version. Please bring back that facility.
Backwards It gives you nothing back. Viewing local sightings, planning visits, this is really really disappointing. Looking forward to an update.New version is so disfunctional to the point of unusable.
UPLOAD ALL YOUR RECORDS BEFORE UPDATING TO AVOID POTENTIAL PROBLEMS
Significantly increased comms time-out for people who upload dozens of lists at a time for whom the server was taking too long to respond
Use compass, get magnetic variation, record mag data and be a citizen scientist!
