I must be awful at searching, because I can’t believe nobody has asked for this before:
I like to go back to an area and see how different individual organisms change during the year. Sometimes I just want to check on an ID, because at the time I first observed the organism, the identifying characteristics were not visible. Of course, my memory can’t possibly handle the number of organisms nor the exact locations where I found them, so I feel like I always forget about 80% of what I wanted to check up on. It would therefore be unbelievably useful if the app had a map with our own observation data, preferably with offline access to names and mapped locations. Photos would of course require way too much memory. I guess one potential solution would be if we could select a specific area to save, and it would only save small/thumbnail images… but even just having the names and locations on a map would be incredibly useful, and that’s all I’m really asking for.
I’m aware that we could just go to the site on the phone and use that, but 1) that sort of defeats the purpose of having a separate app 2) that still requires internet, which is often not available and/or uses data. 3) it’s not as user friendly and requires a lot more time, if it’s even usable at all. Personally I can’t really click on pins when using my phone because they’re just too small and don’t respond, so that doesn’t work for me.
