I've had to downgrade this as I'm starting to have serious issues with the names, changes to the names and some new names that should exist but don't. This is causing frustration and confusion and just when I thought id found a reliable scorce to log in my sightings! Otherwise its simple enough to use and navigate, but can prove a little technical to the unwary. An excellent way of keeping all those important sightings (or would be if it wasn't for the name issue) I would have recommended this.

Great app, flexible, intuitive. Imagine this: you're out birding, or driving, or you're at work. You want to record what you've seen, where you saw them, when you saw them? Easy. Turns out that Google won't let me write all the words to say how good this app is. There are flaws, obviously, but nothing awful and the developers seem to be keen to listen and resolve. There's also a desktop app which has even more power to use your data. I love it!

I love this app. I only wish I had more time to go bird watching so I could use it more. There is a small learning curve but once you have the basics down it is pretty easy to use. I haven't even begun to customize it to the perfect record keeping log. I recommend that anyone thinking about downloading the app to not hesitate and do so. If it seems slightly confusing at first just keep trying because once you are used to it you will be happy you stuck with it.
