iNaturalist is such an amazing thing, and I cannot express how grateful I am that it exists. That being said, the app in its current state is incredibly buggy (no pun intended). It crashes reliably when I ID for more than 5 minutes. There are also many features that should be added, such as the ability to follow friends. I love iNaturalist, and this app could be so much better.

The user experience could be slightly better. It's unclear how to join groups or subscribe to guides. I don't believe there is a follow feature for users either. Overall the app functions well, but it's rather unintuitive. My favorite thing about iNaturalist is that it makes you much more conscious of every living thing around you. Each specimen becomes a beautiful and amazing new example of how vastly complex our world is. Every organism plays a part in the world, no matter how small.

The iNaturalist project is absolutely awesome for anyone who likes to record their wildlife sightings or wants help identifying the animals, plants, etc. that they see. The Android app is kind of buggy and clunky, but still worthwhile. It performs very poorly on slow internet connections (worse than other apps), and the "Explore" feature is unusable on older phones due to constant crashes. I wish I had more time to make proper bug reports, but I don't. The developers are usually very responsive.
