Fabulous website and community. The app works beautifully for entering data in the field, though it has somewhat limited function compared with the excellent website. It would be great if I could see my updates on the app, for example. Despite it's limited function, it is a great tool for data collection. The developers are extremely conscientious and, in my experience, respond fast to serious concerns. After downloading v1.5.3, the software was crashing while opening on my Galaxy S5 running Android 4. Within about 4 hours of reporting the bug (here as a review), the team had identified the problem and posted a new update of the software. A really class act. I have one tip if you spend long days in the field or work in an area with poor cell reception: go into settings and turn off "Automatic Upload (Auto Sync)". This will prevent the app from trying to search the internet for species ID while you are entering an observation, and prevent it from trying to upload photos while you are still in the field. Doing this will dramatically increase battery life, and can save significant frustration.
Why i can't see profile of researcher?
I'd rather like to support iNaturalist in general with this rating. It is a community to observe and identify natural organisms. The aim is not only fun but also to support a database for researchers. Every nature enthusiast should have a look!
INat has fundamentally changed how I study and conduct natural history, and connected me with dozens of other people who share my same passion. Thank you!
Great app... But after the update I get a syncing error. I also wish I could see post from people that I follow
Two major bug fixes:
* fixed crash in Android 4 and below
* fixed missing dates when importing photos in Android 6 and below
Regarding the new permissions request: this is only required for Android 4 and below, and we're using it to report the current screen you're on in the iNat app so we can understand how people are using the new Missions feature. The same information is available to apps in Android 5 and above without asking for this permission.
Here you can learn, train you for employment and know how to care for your health.
