While it doesn't get the bird right almost all the time it does give me a good list to listen to and choose from
It is a good concept, but the limited size of the database (both number of birds and number of songs for each bird) make it of limited usefulness.
After a few days usage.... The app requested me to rate it after just a few days usage. There seemed to be no option other than rated or no thanks. So far, I have had trouble with search feature and automatic identification feature. No demo was available, therefore, I might rate this up higher after some time passes. But for $5, at this point I'm not overly pleased
Helps Narrow It Down I downloaded this app because I thought it would be helpful in identifying birds while out in the field. I tested the app with calls played on my pc. The room was quiet, the volume moderate, and the calls were mostly singular birds from the Cornell Lab of Orinthology. Most results gave me less than stellar results. I received a 61% match on a Black-capped Chickadee. The app placed a Vireo as a closer match. I think the app needs some improvement, but it did narrow down my choices for id.
What did I just pay for? Is there a manual? What are the scores for? Is it game? Why are the birds arranged in no particular order? What is the floating circle with three dots? It does Nothing. I want my money back.
Bird Identifier This app helped me discover the variety of birds visiting my backyard & nearby yards, especially when I only hear them. The recording option is most helpful in identifying the bird. Love this app!!
