Love the app but for some reason I can’t get the initial install email to good away
There are a few foraging apps in the store, but from an informational standpoint, this is among the best. The descriptions of the plants and trees are thorough, the hand drawn and actual photos are wonderful, and the info on preparing, using and/or consuming the foraged material is excellent. It also has a place to make and keep notes. 4/5 only because it’s slightly buggy, but money well spent. Highly recommend.
App mostly works with an iPhone 11 Pro and iOS 13. When you launch the app you get an error and an email pops up to send an error log to the developers. Hitting send or cancel on the email doesn’t work. BUT if you just leave the app open for a minute or two the email goes away and the app works, and most of the images even download successfully. (You probably need to be connected to WiFi the first time you open the app to get all the images.) Basically just ignore the error and be patient, the app still mostly works, albeit badly needs a bug fix update.
Great app when it works. No pictures? Are you paying your bill? It feels like KODI? Bad business plan? It’s great when people are buying, what happens when that stops? $30 invested, I’ll go local and let a judge decide.
Doesn’t work. Will not load.
I purchased this app a few years ago. Initially it worked ok. It became glitchy over time. Now the app won’t work at all. The developer was contacted about the problem and he advised he had lost the programmer and couldn’t find another to correct the problems. He suggested I delete and reload the app. This has been done twice. Now the app will only send an email to the developer and then it freezes. I am VERY unhappy with this app for which the developer received money and which is now useless. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS APP!! To the developer: if you make this app work again, I’ll consider revising this review. To everyone else: DO NOT PURCHASE THIS APP.
Downloaded, and the first thing that pops up is a screen trying to send what I assume is feedback via email to the creator. Can’t use it at all..
No update and the photos are not scaled properly. Had to pay twice due to technical reason and no help. Promised better performance with new developer. No improvement or change after 2 years. Shame.
I think this app is no longer supported. It was a great app, but unfortunately it no longer works. Maybe they just closed up shop, but the upshot is that the images no longer load and it attempts to send a failure log that never leaves your outbox. I tried to get to the app developer website but it no longer appears active. Too bad. K.
I saw all the other terrible reviews. I thought well I will give it a chance. I got it to open once. Then it froze. I had to double click the home key and crash the app. I have not been able to get it working since. It has such great potential. I really hope they get it fixed. The website says it will be redone in spring. I don’t know how long that has been up. I hope it is true.
