One common issue i’ve seen that causes reduced enjoyment of iNat for both new and existing users is a misunderstanding of the relationship between the app and the website. Many new users think that what iNat is, is primarily the app, or even primarily the ID algorithm. People don’t understand that the website is the best place to experience a lot of what iNat has to offer. They then don’t respond to questions or comments about their observations or even experience the full value of the community ID. I was just talking to a (casual user) friend who didn’t see my comments for a long time because she was only using the app and didn’t check the activity tab.
So is there a way via app messaging or something else to direct people to the website? Maybe a note that there are additional notifications that need to be viewed on the website? Other ideas?
