    This is very easy to use and will give the people working in conservation a great idea of how the butterfly population is doing, (as long as enough people participate)...

    The new look app looks absolutely amazing, well done Butterfly Conservation. As someone who has always struggled with butterfly ID I have found the ID extremely beneficial especially as it shows multiple pictures of each butterfly from multiple angles. I love the interactive map and look forward to seeing my sightings on there. Good luck with the Big Count this year.

    A pleasant thing to do in the garden for 15 minutes.

  • Would change 1 thing Aug 1, 2015

    By k1mba
    The only thing I would change is to have an option to put in the place name first so that I don't have to move the map 100's of miles. Otherwise very easy and glad to take part!

    Utterly pointless. You have to sell your data soul via Facebook or Google to get logged in or you can't submit reports. You can use email but after requesting password reminder none came. So pointless. And meager offerings on butterflies to report. No large or small skipper. No clouded yellows. No unusual options. No "other" category as in previous years. Whats the point. This is supposed to be reflective of whats being seen everywhere. Not, garden flower bed faves. Very poor.

    Doesn't retain settings like login & location, have to re-enter all the details every time. Unable to close the app when finished.

    Start a count, take a photo and your session isn't saved. Given most butterflies are fast moving an unsure (brown or white) option would be useful

    Tried to do the butterfly count like I have done in previous years. You now have to log in to do it but after you have entered your counts. Then you had to re-enter your counts. What an hassle. Don't they believe you have seen the butterflies. 🤔

    App has gone downhill. Fiddly, repetitive, only a very limited list of our butterflies and i have seen several not on the list. The app is a pain in the rear and keeps taking you back. You cannot record any dates before 1st July and the whole app is generally not good enough. It's not fit fir ourpoae, so i cannot take part in our annual Butterfly Count. I have uninstalles. Waste of time!

    This app is useful for documenting the butterflies which have severely declined over the years. It would be nice to document EVERY butterfly and moth of course, but the specimens in the count are nearing endangerment due to habitat loss.

    A good app, easy to use and follow. Wud hv liked more species of butterfly, but it would probably become a little more complicated if there were. But what a great idea to get people into observing nature and wildlife and developing more of an interest in it. And at the same time getting out and about.

    Worked well. Easy to use. Pity that there were no photos of the butterflies/moths with wings closed on the app. Would have made it easier identifying some when they were at a distance.

    Would like to see a 'Search' field at the 'Set Location' stage as I'm often entering data when I'm at a different place from where the sightings occurred. The default start for the 'Hold + Drag to Move' is the location where I'm entering the data and it's very tedious to have to drag it 73 miles as I have tonight when I've taken a Screenshot of my exact sightings location using the OS Maps App.

    I saw more than I expected (7) which was fun. The app would benefit from allowing you to record your confidence level for each sighting as very difficult to be certain with some of them.

    Rather disappointed in the lack of variety options for you to select. I have seen many orange-tips but haven't been able to log them. Increase the varieties of butterflies that we are able to choose from as we are seeing a bug variety and many aren't even listed on the app.

    Couldn't get to move the location symbol from the phone's current location. I use i-record, now that's a decent app. I've uninstalled Big Butterfly Count and will go back to using I-record, I worry about the duplication of recording apps, I'm not convinced they share data effectively.
