Great for beginner I love to pull this app up to identify sightings. It's easy to use, has great details. Being able to hear the calls and see different images is so helpful
Search function is much improved The search function disappeared on an older version but reappeared much improved when I downloaded the newest version.
Bottom navigation is not very responsive. Have to flick a few times. Touching the index on the right crashes app. Some image files are broken. ALL images on "identify" have coarse, sandy texture for some reason. Reply to the comment 2016/5/25: thumbnails in the list are broken for, audubon's oriole, bumblebee hummingbird, cassin's finch, common redpoll, cook's petrel, eastern kingbird, eastern yellow wagtail, elf owl, eurasian tree sparrow, fork-tailed swift, gray wagtail, great-winged petrel, kirtland's warbler. Could be more. You should really consider changing the bottom navigation bar back to what is was. It's not responsive, covers too much of screen, the color doesn't much the main window and look hideous. It was 100x better before. 1.25GB obb file is just way too big. What made it twice as big as the last version?
EXCELLENT RESOURCE FOR BIRD LOVERS!!! It is the most comprehensive & detailed bird application that I have come across anywhere. The search features have eliminated the endless page turning of a book, when trying to find information on a particular bird. Now, I can just open up the application on my phone/tablet & all the info is right in my hand! While reading through the comments, it seems there are more applications for I-Phone users. WHY? Please do not limit us Android users to less. I would like to think our $ is just as green as theirs!
Love it but ... Great app, best one for birds out there. But, new bottom menu layout is terrible, big step back from old version. Wrong color, takes up too much space, have to scroll. Old one was much better! But my main complaint is why can't I move the database to SD storage? This is easily the largest app on my phone and takes up way too much space. Other apps can move to SD, why not this one? You'll get 5 stars from me when you do this.
Excellent app but still glitchy Still getting frequent crashes (on Android 6.0), usually when reopening the app after an hour or so since last using it. Some icons in species list are buggy, too. Fix those problems for a 4th star. The other frustrating part of using this app is that you can't keep multiple tabs of different species open and available to switch between easily. Add that functionality and I'll give you that 5th star. Thanks.
Big changes in this update.
■ The database no longer needs to extracted. The app reads all of the data it needs from a single file.
■ iBird will prompt to clean up any old extracted databases it finds. Give it a few minutes to finish.
■ Favorites and notes are preserved as long as the user does not uninstall the app.
■ For details on the latest version see http://ibird.com/hub2/android/. Scroll to the bottom for issues with memory space.
