Desperately needs fixing I have been a Birdguides subscriber for several years, but this is definitely the weakest part of the portfolio. It is slow, crashes for a pastime ( especially when submitting sitings) and it doesn't access any of my saved favourite locations. The old text-based version that I had on my Nokia was much more usable.
Room for improvement I tried it for a month. Its OK but needs Notifications implementing and allow you to choose default view without the gallery always showing. Why not make the gallery just a different tab like the ALL and NEARBY ones? I suspect most would then settle for their filtered view without gallery as the default and make the info easier to access. Until this is done I think the Rare Bird Alert is far better
A few niggles It seems to crash when you click on the map for the location of the bird which is a problem if you don't know the area. Notifications is also a must in this day and age for local and filtered birds.
Rubbish This app is a waste of time the website is far better one of the worst apps I have ever used
Notifications required I haven't used it to submit sightings, so I cannot comment on that. The listings info is good, but I would like notifications to tell me when an entry for a chosen (this can vary depending on your current location) region has been submitted.
Okay but needs work Good filter functions. Crashes every time I try and submit a sighting using search, so limited out in the field. A few months down the line and i'm no further forward with it. No matter what i do, it crashes every time I try and submit a report using search to find a location. The site lookup database only installs up to the letter E. Competitors app works far better I know this isn't down to the app, but many of the places where it would be useful have rubbish network coverage. Definitely will not be renewing my subscription.
