Isoperla apps appear in BBC Countryfile's top 10 apps, and have been described as "incredibly useful" by ITV's Seth Conway and "lovely" by Adam Vaughan of the Guardian.
Isoperla field guides are the only products on the market that use the KUSAM species identification methodology. This state of the art method is a modern taxonomic keying system designed specifically for use on mobile devices and is ideal for bird identification while birdwatching.

The British Isles are also known as the Anglo-celtic Isles and include the UK (Great Britain (England, Scotland, Wales) and Northern Ireland) and Eire. Britain or Great Britain is the name given to the mainland within the United Kingdom (the UK). The UK is the political union between England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, not a geographical area.

The internet will only be used if you use the sightings map in the app.

Record a bird singing and use Automatic Recognition to help identify it.
Automatic Recognition is a little like Shazam for birds.
Automatic Recognition takes place on the device, no connection to the internet or mobile network is needed.
Automatic Recognition needs good quality recordings to work well. See the help below, or follow the Developer Website link to find out how to improve your recordings.
How successful is it ? Our aim is to get the correct bird in the top three of those listed. In our testing of over 1,000 samples we found the success rate of Bird Song Id to be 85%.
Follow the Developer Website link to see a demo of Bird Song Id Automatic Recognition on YouTube
--------------- HELP ----------------
Automatic Recognition needs a good quality recording of the bird.
Only record when it is very quiet, apart from the bird singing of course.
Be close to the bird singing, as close as you can be without disturbing it.
Only record when a single bird is singing, or when a single bird is dominant
The analysis graph should have plenty of blue and green colors with few or no black peaks.
The peaks on the Bird Song Id graph should reach all the way to the top. Low peaks indicate poor quality and recognition is unlikely.
The Audio Quality, shown at the top of the results screen, should be at least Good, and preferably Very Good or Excellent
The highest Bird Song Id score should be above 70% to be useful. Below this and the system is telling you it is not sure what the song is.
A difference between two birds of less than 10% is not that significant, so listen to the samples from both to help you further
Make sure it is very quiet apart from the bird song which should be nice and loud
Be as close to the bird as you can be without disturbing it
Be patient, dont expect miracles, the system works but needs good clear recordings
The microphone is often at the bottom of a device, point the microphone towards the bird
Remove the case from your device if you use one as this can dampen the microphone
Record a single bird at a time
Capture at least two singing episodes if you can.
Record for the full 30 seconds
Avoid windy conditions. Air moving over the microphone will mask the bird sounds
Make sure there is plenty of life in the battery. Your device will reduce power going to the microphone as the battery runs down
Playing songs to the app from recorded material on the internet, other apps or CDs is unlikely to work as this material is digitally processed and edited (inter phase gaps are often shortened). They sound very different to recording birds for real in the natural environment.
Some devices, particularly larger tablets, do not have good microphones built in to them. This will result in a lot of background hiss that will cause Automatic Recognition to fail. Better external microphones are usually available for these devices.

This is one of a series of Birding Checklist applications for Android mobile phones and tablets. There are applications for Australia, New Zealand, United States (excluding Mexico and South America), Western Palearctic (UK and Europe), Pacific Islands, South Africa, and Ecuador/Peru/Bolivia.
PHOTOS & SOUNDS are downloaded separately, and must be manually installed via your PC. Please check the Readme file at this download website so you know how to do this. The photos and sounds are NOT included in the download package from the Android market.
Please see support website https://sites.google.com/site/birdingchecklists/ if you have difficulties downloading and installing the photos and sounds.
WP/UK download website:
Western Palearctic (includes UK) – 924 species and 1188 subspecies
These applications include basic bird identification information, and are NOT intended to replace a field guide. It is expected that users will have good familiarity with the birds they are seeing, and will use this application for:
a. Logging bird sightings (with GPS co-ordinates if your phone has a GPS)
b. Uploading your sightings to eBird (or similar PC or online recording system)
c. Maintaining your Lifelist
Full versions have the following features:
- complete listing of all bird species and subspecies (where known)
- searching and filtering of the bird list
- statistics and record of your personal bird Lifelist
- current tick list (birds you have seen today or during a short field trip)
- quick lists for customised bird listings for locations your frequently visit
- display of bird photos and bird calls on the SD card linked to the application (these must be manually downloaded separately)
- logging facilities including GPS location (if your phone has a GPS)
- export log file in eBird Import format for rapid loading of your sightings to eBird
- optional downloadable Rangemaps and extended text descriptions (incomplete but growing collection on external download site)
- help information
- play mp4 videos of birds stored in the photos folder on the SD card
- support for large screen 1280 x 800 tablets
Demo versions have reduced functionality:
- cannot save sighting logs or statistics
- will not display rangemaps or extended descriptions
- do not display ticklists for regions
- no GPS location display on Google maps
- no alternate language support
- no quicklists (custom filtering of bird lists for your location)
- no mp4 video support
You can easily add your own resources files – the application places no restriction on this but very large numbers of photos (many thousands) may slow down the application.
Please contact me if you have any comments or suggestions, or corrections to the bird information. Please also get in contact if you are interested in helping create a new birding checklist application for birds in your area.
