Good and getting better

Quick for data capture in the field. Faithful transfer to QGIS. Useful app with good support. Looking forward to seeing how it develops.

App not what it used to be

I have used this app for a few years and have found it useful for a variety of ecological survey work (not just Phase 1 Habitat Survey), as it is very useful for having a high quality aerial photo and the ability to write target notes and link photos geographically in the field. Unfortunately since the end of 2018, the app has started to “hang” and reboot in the middle of drawing a polygon and as such has become extremely irritating and time consuming to use. It is not just my IPad as I know other users are having the same problem. I have emailed the developer via the contact link on the home screen but have received no response. I can no longer recommend this app and will not be renewing the subscription in due course.
