okay for your everyday hiker..
It's a good concept for an app, but if I were to change something, I would expand it so you can search by both common and scientific name. I used this app while going to school for forestry and sometimes couldn't use it because how the browsing is set up, but otherwise the descriptions were good and it helped as a study aid.

Needs a key
This is useful for information on an identified tree, or to distinguish between a few known possibilities. However it is almost useless for an unidentified tree. I realize that a traditional key would probably not be appropriate, but the search features leave much to be desired. - Consider a tree in a typical urban forest, with no fruit. None of the habitats fit, and the shape is not generally observable in the forest. This leaves only the leaf shape. Come on --- I'm supposed to page through all of the compound leaves, of all types? There is no separation even into opposite and alternate leaves? - None of the modes of search seem to recognize scientific names. I realize that the typical user of this app wouldn't be expected to use scientific names, but it's absurd that he is not permitted to. - As an example, there is no obvious way to pick out only the ash trees. Searching on "ash" gives an interminable list of plants whose names contain 'ash', generally as only part of a word. As another issue, there should be some sort of statement about what is included. It includes some bushes and vines as well as trees, but there is not indication of what criteria is used. Why does it include trumpet creeper but not Cross vine? Why does it include Orange honeysuckle but not coral honeysuckle?

Not so good
I agree with the previous reviews of the app borderline sucking. I think this is version 1.4. One tree only had one picture of the bark - not very helpful for identification. It kicked me back to my home page within the first 30 minutes of use. You could list things by "lastname" but it didn't re-sort the list. Doesn't seem ready for the world yet. I'm surprised Audubon has their name on the app; it's not good for their brandname.

Waste of money!
First app I have found truly disappointing. Should have trusted the other poor reviews. Also discovered "compatible with iPad" simply means iPhone screen on iPad. So much for great resolution. This was a waste of $10.

Not very useful.
With no bark or location information for most trees, this application has little value. I was hoping that they would use the Sync feature to progressively update their information but, even this doesn't work. The error mesage, "Sychronization data is unavailable" is what I get every time I try and sync.

Few eastern trees
Disappointing to say the most. Definitely not worth ten bucks.
