It's free - let's be grateful & constructive! My first birding app. It's not perfect - but for the money, it's amazing! To Jennifer, who reviewed 3 days ago: thanks for the constructive list of your concerns. But at least one is just knowing how the app works. You CAN delete a sighting you've previously recorded: in your list of sightings, press & hold on the picture of the bird you want to remove; the app will ask you if you want to edit or delete. Happy birding!
What's not to like? Lots of photos and data, attractively presented; this will likely replace Peterson and iBird on my devices. I had no problems downloading the data and moving most of the app storage to the SD card. And it's free! One thing: "share by email" brings up a Twitter sign-in. Some of us don't tweet!
Some great, some poorly designed features The content, photos, maps and songs included are superb. However, several aspects are terrible. First, it forces you to use the location setting to record a sighting, rather than letting you provide one by typing the location in. Second, the program forces you to scroll through a very long list of species to record each sighting. There should be a search option to type in the name. This selection process is tedious and discourages one from reporting. Also, the app doesn't time out and shut off the display (sleep) when you're not using it. That wastes and ultimately drains the battery for no purpose. At least let the user turn this off. Finally, another negative is the inability to remove a species from your list. I clicked on the wrong bird, and I couldn't remove it to correct my list. I would love to use this app, but the negatives outweigh the positives, unless it's just to identify a species. Furthermore, if you identify a bird and click on the + key to add it to your list, it brings up a new list of birds for you to select from. This is counterintuitive. And why does it keep telling me I'm from New York when I told it I'm from Colorado several times? Arghhh
My city is not listed In the nearby observations section my town Ocala, FL is not listed and we are a big town but yet hole in the wall towns like bronson are listed. CAN THIS BE FIXED. In the next update?
Good app however i cannot log on to the chat area. Error message says no connection and I am connected to my wifi
Awesome app, needs mapping fixed I love this all. But, the sightings map doesn't work right due to Map Quest decision not to provide map data.
