The checklist is great in the field but recently the option to change lists stopped working. Despite emailing Stevens Creek Software 3 times I didn't even get a reply - uninstalled! Don't need software where the owner can't be bother to respond
Fast and Easy to use. You can quickly record your sighting. Adding counts and notes when needed. Output into format for import into ebird.
A most useful and easy data recorder After trying most of the apps on the market, I've finally found one that I think is the best by a mile. It has lists from all around the world ( you can even make your own custom list). Locations are very easy to set up and access. All lists can be archived to phone or Dropbox, so if phone is lost or broken or if you buy a new phone, your lists are easy to re-install. Lists can be exported by email (say to your local bird club or recorder). The actual recording of the sighting i-e the scrolling to the bird and tapping, is simplicity its self. All this and much more can all be done in the app its self, which to me is a most important feature Support is excellent. You will not regret trying it.
A useful data recorder Birdwatcher's Diary addresses some of the shortcomings of BirdLog, which I have been using for 3 years. In particular, it supports keeping a day or trip list covering multiple locations. I like that feature a lot. On the whole, Birdwatcher's Diary is a very useful data recorder. However, after using it intensively on a trip to Peru, I found myself frustrated over some features. "Intelliscroll" just does not work for me. Being limited to two characters when searching for a name is maddening when you have multiple screens of Antbirds, Antpittas, Antshrikes, Antthrushes, Antvireos, and Antwrens, etc., to scroll through. After my return from Peru, support for search was implemented in an update, but incredibly it is only supported in alphabetical list mode! I have no tolerance for alphabetical species lists. The lack of map-based location management is also a serious shortcoming. I continue to use Birdwatcher's Diary when I really need a trip list covering multiple locations, such as for a Christmas Bird Count, but it is not my primary recording tool.
Learning curve too steep, not useful in the field
o A new "Birder's Diary compatibility" setting allows output using Spreadsheet format to be fully compatible with the desktop PC software Birder's Diary.
o Improved output via email provides better compatibility with a wider variety of email programs, including Email, Gmail, Outlook, and K9. Also a new "whoosh" sound confirms that the email was sent (or at least queued up in the Outbox of the email program if the device is not online).
