High Definition photos
All photos are available in high quality (HD) directly from the server. This needs a working internet connection (Internet needs to be switched on for your phone and this App, see below at Menu) These photos are not stored on your device since they occupy a lot of room.
Return will exit the HD photo and bring you back to the details page.
Saving your notes
At each animal, a note can be added. Go to a specific details page and open the menu option Notes. Enter your text and press OK, OK + date will automatically add date/time at the beginning of your note. Once saved it can be altered at a later stage.
Finding records with text content
At installation, data is directly included in the Nature-Guide. Regularly we add records or make small changes to existing records. These updates are freely available the first year. Select OK to update the data of your Nature-Guide.
A counter shows the progress and how much updates are downloading.
This, however, does not load photos on your device, select the next menu option for this. (An active internet connection is needed.)
Photos are loaded on your device to make sure you have them available offline if needed. Per category, you find the number still missing on your phone. Initially, it will take some time to download all photos. We recommend checking this second menu option each time you update information.
Please note: Some devices have a second storage location. If available it can be selected in the Settings menu.
Delete all photos
This option is useful to free up memory on your device or if you want to use the alternative storage location (settings/storage location).
Nature-Guide is available in Dutch and English, when installed it will be in English. For Dutch, all texts are translated. It is also possible to show the animal names in German, Italian or French, information texts will then be in English.
When you see both English and Dutch texts it indicates your phone has a different language setting as the Nature-Guide app.
