Fails to recognise 100% of recorded calls. Even in premium database is woefully small and excludes gulls or any species living on or near water. Not really worth persisting with.
Loved this app until I upgraded to premium which is vastly inferior to the free version. Now barely picks up any birds at all even on sensitive setting.
Fantastic app. Many a time when walking we have heard a birdsong that we have not recognised. This easy to use app has made their Identification simple.
The earlier free version worked reasonably well, but since I have installed the latest version and paid for premium service, the app has proved less than useless. I use this on both a Samsung S5 phone and a Samsung tab. I have read all the help files, tried the different sensitivity settings, and it has failed at every use. Recently I had the chance to do a positive test on the app, a bird was singing close to me in my garden, and it was quite loud with little or no wind or background noise. I made 3 recordings on both my phone and tablet. Only one recording recognised that there was a bird there, the other 5 showed nothing at all. It identified a Chaffinch (I could see the bird) as being a Yellowhammer. I am very dissapointed with this app and certainly can't recommend it.
Does not work at all on my ZTE Axon 7. Standing literally 2 metres from a Goldfinch in full song and this app gave a 30% probable match to a Chiffchaff and 25% Robin. Birds further away don't register at all. Tried playing with the settings, but it doesn't seem to help.
The free version worked very well. Now I suspect, that if a bird came up to it and said, 'I'm a robin, the app still wouldn't get it. Less than useless on the S7... please replace this version with the original.... Still useless - seems to invent birds when it can't recognise one....
