  • iPad Functionality is missing Apr 23, 2020

    By Hajdinak
    Love the app and the cause, the app is simple and quick to pickup. Would like to see more optimization for the iPad or a potential standalone app with greater tools and functionality.

  • Great Idea and Execution Jun 12, 2020

    This is a really cool app, it’s good to use when you’ve got some time to sit or are just hanging out. It doesn’t need a very strong connection or a powerful phone to work, and looking for buildings on it gets kind of addicting! It’s an awesome idea to crowdsource this kind of stuff, and the app functions perfectly. It’s simple and easy and has a good tutorial, so you should at least give it a try.

    I'm not sure if how helpful it is. From a user perspective I miss the option to zoom in or out to properly identify a feature. On desktop, I can zoom in all the way to discern a house from a tree, but more importantly zoom out far enough to discern a man-made path from other linear terrain features. As it is now, I do not leave a task with the feeling that I have identified the features well, which creates frustration immediately and discourages to continue in the long run.

    This is really fulfilling an important need. I would like more guidance on what is the shadow of a tree and what is a round building. Thank you!

  • Good feel good app Jul 17, 2016

    By iolaire
    Simple app, look at arial photos and tap once if it has the desired features, can be home/hut, roads or "tracks" depending on the tasks, tap twice for a maybe or three times for bad image. So very simple. I would like better definitions of a "track" since I think that means a path, so lots of paths show up which could be animal tracks or maybe even stream beds. I worry I'm flagging too many tracks. I think it would be good to have a gallery of normal objects. I'm sure someone is highly skilled at this task already and could provide examples of say six hut styles to help make sure we know what the look like.

  • Love Idea, Small Bugs Jul 17, 2016

    By BlindUser1968
    This is an awesome idea! There are some lingering bugs tho. If you adjust the iPhone text size in settings, part of the text in the app flows off of the screen and makes it unreadable. Keep up the good work!

    I used this App on my FairPhone2 (Android 6.0.1). That was fine until recently. Now it stopped and when I try to re-install the Google Playtime shop says " FairPhone 2 is not an eligable device for app install" ?

    A nice way to contribute, shame that out doesn't use OSM single sign-on. Also it would be cool to have a visual of the full serial image and and much was complete.

    The swipe down gesture doesn't work most of the time. Usually the screen just jitters to the sides while I try to swipe down. Please fix?
