Survey Request On iNaturalist App!

I am Wonny, and I am a university student.
One of my project was about coming up with a new design, and I have selected iNaturalist as my topic.
I would like to hear from you about thoughts on iNaturalist app.
It would be a great help for me if I can have some help!
I have created a survey with a link:
link for the survey
It would be a great help if you can answer this!
Thank you so much!


P.S. I am not sure if I can upload this type of post on iNatForum. If this is inappropriate, please tell me, and I will remove it as soon as possible. Thank you for the understanding!

You should probably distinguish between the Android and iOS apps, as they are very different. The Android one is legitimately extremely good, but the iOS one lacks so many features that I really only use it to upload phone photos.


Ohhh! that is the part I overlooked.
Thank you so much for your suggestion!
I have added the another question that asks about which type of iNaturalist app people used.

Welcome to the forum! I think you may find a lot of answers to your questions in feature requests that have been made:


i get that this is a a school project, but i don’t think anyone would ever really approach a design project by starting with this kind of very general survey. if you’re going to ask questions in a survey or even a focus group, those questions really need to be a lot more focused, i think.

if you’re just looking for a starting point for ideas for areas to improve, you can find a lot of ideas in this forum (as noted by thomaseverest), or by looking though the discussions in the iNat GitHub repo, or by looking through the reviews / comments in the app stores. you could even reach out to the iNat staff to interview them for just a few minutes. they might be able to point to areas where they actually need someone to do a little in-depth research.


This is really great!
I have not know that there are such feature requests!
These feature requests will help me to plan a design that can make the user experience better!
Thank you for your help!

Wow, thank you for sharing your valuable know-how!
I am focusing more on how to make user use the app more efficiently.
So this really is a good advice! Thank you for your help!
