This was a 5 star wonderful app until about 2 months ago. We have had it 3 or 4 years. Great to help identify. I started using it as my only list for birding. I logged when our first Osprey of the year came, when they first had eggs, when they hatched, etc. About all birds observed. Then about 2 months ago, I added something to my list noting the status and went back to look up something from an earlier date and every entry inside was identical to the first entry on the inside of it. ALL my notations were gone. I went out to the help section and sent an email asking what happened and if it was recoup able. I never even got an answer! I am so disappointed!
Bought this app YEARS ago, now I upgraded my phone to a Samsung galaxy s8 and it wants permission to use my phone as well as my photos & media! Why? Didnt do this before!!! Fix this or I want a refund because it also says I have to setup the eguide app. WHAT EGUIDE APP?? When I got this that never came up, plus I followed the directions to go to my App Manager and nope no eguide as an option to enable. Very disappointed!!!
I just downloaded this and I am disappointed with the accuracy of the smart search for Alaska birds. Birds that are common and clearly mapped within the app to be IN Alaska do not show up in the smart search. Fix this and it will be a 5 star app and worth 20 dollars...otherwise I want a refund.
As always, great Sibley illustrations and descriptions. This app, however, is missing out on some key mobile platform functionality. For example, there is no feature to show similar species by sight or sound (Audubon shows similar species by sight and iBird shows similar sounding species as well). This app also lacks actual images of the birds which can be useful as well as not supporting searches using AOU four letter alpha codes.
I purchased this app years ago and I am unable to open it. I loved it when it was working. I have tried to follow instructions and I still am unable to utilize this app. I am disappointed that this has not been resolved. Marilyn Abend
Bought a new phone, and now when trying to launch the app, it wants permission to 1. Sibley to make & handle phone calls; 2. Sibley to access my photos, media & files on my device. Why would a bird app need to access my personal files? Wasn't required when I purchased it last year. No thanks. I'll use my books so I can have privacy.
Fixed list entry delete bug.
