I don't have all of the images and range maps in my app. How can I fix this issue? (Android)
It sounds like the app is not fully installed. We recommend uninstalling and then re-installing while connected to a high speed wifi connection. Google will remember that you've already purchased the app and won't charge you again. There's a large expansion file (~60-200MB depending on the app) that needs to download onto your device in order to see all of the images. Once it's fully installed from Google Play, you won't be prompted to download images.

I bought this app for Android and now I have switched to iOS (or vice versa). Does my purchase transfer?
Sorry, no. The purchase or app license doesn't transfer between vendors (Apple, Google, and Amazon).

The species I'm looking for is not in the app. Can you add it?
