I own the printed book and was hoping this might be more useful, but was very disappointed. The search option is poorly designed and is the main way I would be using this app. It lacks many visual cues for search terms on the search page - if you don't know what the leaf types or arrangements are before hand, the text names are useless. App crashed within a minute of using. Having an ad for other Audibon apps as the start page which you MUST click through every time you launch this app is also extremely annoying, especially for a $10 app!

Truly a disappointing app. Green Mountain has much work to do. First and perhaps most disappointing is the information on any given tree is very inconsistent. Some only have a leaf photo, others only have a photo of the fruit, most are missing photos of bark which for me is the most helpful way to id the tree. There may be 4 or 5 pics of a tree but if it is missing its leaves and there is no "fruit' on it, without the bark photo how exactly are you to identify it? Secondly, most of the info pertaining to the range of a particular species is missing. A very big problem. Especially considering that this is an East/West book. Of the 10 or 12 trees I tried to id today when I purchased the app only 1 had what I would consider equal info to what I have in the Audubon books. Also, when I search for the range on 90% of the searches I am told "range information not currently available, please see description" Not very helpful and/or useful. I am very suprised that Audubon is putting out such a poor quality product. I am hopeful that these issues will be fixed with updates in the near future. I was so excited about getting these apps but after purchasing my first one today, I can honestly say I am EXTREMELY disappointed. When I am trying to learn these trees I need all the help I can get. Unfortunately, this app provides almost no use. Stick with the books. Don't waste your money. The only compliment that I will begrudgingly give them at this time is that the "key" is the same. Back to the drawing board Green Mountain/Audubon. This product is FAR below your standards and I am very disappointed that I have wasted my cash on such a lousy app. This is easily the worst "reference" app I have purchased on i-tunes. Back to the drawing board.
