Please Update!
I used this app frequently as a geoscience undergrad on field trips, and I know my soil science prof did as well because he encouraged everyone to download it. With iOS 11, unfortunately, it is no longer accessible, and I fear that students, researchers, farmers, and the curious public are now without a wonderful in-field utility and overall fantastic resource. Please update this, developers!

Nice work
Incredible app! Go soil science. Future update should allow the “view map” feature as in the desktop version. This is essential to see nearby soil types rather than just those under your current location.

Change Soil Series Font Color
Have loved this app for years; so grateful to have it. Would like to see the soil series name in a font color other than white; very difficult to read outdoors.

Gave soil for wrong area
The map has the correct gps coordinates, however the software gave us a physical location and soil data for an area 4 miles east of the gps location. Needs work.

A fine tool for discovering soil
Every natural resource scientist or civil engineer should have this app on their iPhone. All natural resources are dependent on the soil. This tool provides the soils information for where you are standing. The USA is the only country in the world with soils mapped border to border - with maps and a complete database. SoilWeb was developed by a brilliant PhD student that took advantage of that free database. Now, this tool puts the information about the ground below your feet into your hands. It is by far the easiest tool to use for accessing a very large and powerful database. One button search of the soils information is easy although finding the map is a puzzle. Download it and discover the amazing world beneath your feet.

Link Issues
This is a great app that our entire team is using to find soil types but the OSD link does not work. This is really discouraging as it costs us extra time to copy and paste the link and retrieve the information through extra steps. Could you please check this out and fix the link if possible. We are trying to get our entire agronomy group and sales reps to use this information and when it doesn't work properly they choose to skip the information or make a guess at it. Thanks

When will you update????
I work in natural resources developing ESD’s and used the websoil app all the time. It’s was an exceptionally useful tool. Unfortunately the last iso update on my iPhone is no longer compatible with websoil. When will it be updated to a compatible version. The loss of your app is very unfortunate. Who can I contact to urge continuing support for this soil app. Sincerely Rick Peterson.

Very good app, could be great
Very useful app for field work. As mentioned, the OSD links do not always work, and if you don’t have good service (common in the field), you can’t use it at all. It also needs to be updated in order to work with iOS 11

Excited about this app
Have not yet played with the app but am excited that it exists. Will update feedback once I experience the app. But if it's anything like the web version, it should be spectacular since I use it for my permaculture design business.

Excellent Progression
First it was going to a dusty room in the office for soil info, then it was going online for the desktop only version. Now everything I need is on my phone, instant with GPS! Thought it had a map but that may be another app.

Great tool
Excellent teaching tool and great for anyone traversing the country and wanting to know what soils are underfoot. I took the train from Lincoln, Nebraska to Chicago and the whole journey soil web informed me on the soil series. Great! what is next: maps, block diagrams? Thanks Dylan for making this.

Get your vineyard geek on!
An excellent tool for investigating potential and existing vineyard soil types. Would like to see data export options in future updates. (or a mashup with Theodolite!) Great job!

Worked great until it didn’t
I used this app daily for my work. Then suddenly one day it wouldn’t load then it wouldn’t even open. I deleted it. Downloaded it. Emailed the developer who didn’t know anything was wrong. So now for about 3 to 4 months it doesn’t work.

Dig it!
This is the premier soil inventory app! I use this regularly for my natural resources project work. Major thanks to the developers for creating such a useful and intuitive data delivery interface for USDA soil survey data.

Gives one a quick idea of the soil type in your location. The app itself has not been updated and there are several broken links that detract from it.

IPad version?
This is a really useful app. However, I find I have to move the window around a lot to read some of the text. Is there a version in work for the iPad?
