I downloaded this app with a mind to purchase the full one if I found it useful in identifying birds. Unfortunately I found it unhelpful. I didn't see a way to sort the birds in a manner that assists identification, like color or perching or water. All I saw were thumbnail pictures that weren't even photos (which I find more accurate). I did like the rather detailed info ( the bird calls are nice) you can access once you've determined what you're looking at. May work for some but just not what I wanted.
Start app, after a few seconds get "unfortunately ibird lite has stopped". + "report" "ok" at bottom of screen, select report, nothing happens. Older version (3.1) works great on my obsolete phone.
A great reflection of the full app
I'm missing several species when I try and search for even some of the most common birds. Was disappointed wish it had more content.
Streaming only nonsense. When I'm out in the bush, I'm actually in the bush. No WiFi. No cell towers. That makes this app and it's paid version nearly useless.
Much improved detail over the early versions but it is basically an example of the pricier versions of iBird. Good for the price.
