Android mobile phone app to aid foraging - Forager's Friend

Hi,

Having looked around for a mobile phone app that would help me record and remember my foraging finds, I failed to find anything that was suitably simple and effective, so I decided to have a go at writing my own. I have a technology background, but this is my first attempt at writing a mobile phone app, and I'd really appreciate some feedback on what people think of it. A free version (limited to storing 3 items) can be found here:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pandasoft.forager.lite&hl=en
It's based around google maps and allows you to easily catalog and then search for your finds. Never forget a source of free and fantastic food again!!

All data is stored locally on your phone, it's completely private. There's functionality to export items from your database using email, primarily via for backup purposes, but you could actually use it to share finds with friends if you wish.

Any suggestions for improvements welcomed. And if you do like it, feel free to leave some feedback on Google Play and tell all your friends!

Regards,

Andy.

Makes a change from foraging for spherical yellow and black Japanese creatures!
