Excellent Best tool in the field! I have used this app for at least 4 years and two versions. There have been times when I considered uninstalling it because of squirrelly performance. But on the whole, the author has worked out the bugs and it is reliable. It replaces three trusted field guides in my pack. The "voice" of the birds is priceless. It also contains info that isn't easily found like fledgling times. Well done. Keep up the good work.
Love it but ... Great app, best one for birds out there. But, new bottom menu layout is terrible, big step back from old version. Wrong color, takes up too much space, have to scroll. Old one was much better! But my main complaint is why can't I move the database to SD storage? This is easily the largest app on my phone and takes up way too much space. Other apps can move to SD, why not this one? You'll get 5 stars from me when you do this.
The upgrade has eliminated the "Season" search attribute; you can no longer choose months. (When I search for summer birds, I get birds winter birds included.) I inquired and it didn't seem like an important omission to them. So, back to Audubon Birds, and Sibley Birds, which still let me search in my area by month.
Next Level Awesomeness I've been using iBird Pro since just before version 3 came out. This new update made an already awesome app so much better that I had to set myself a new standard for what a truly awesome app is supposed to be like. Thank you guys.
Excellent app but still glitchy Still getting frequent crashes (on Android 6.0), usually when reopening the app after an hour or so since last using it. Some icons in species list are buggy, too. Fix those problems for a 4th star. The other frustrating part of using this app is that you can't keep multiple tabs of different species open and available to switch between easily. Add that functionality and I'll give you that 5th star. Thanks.
Head & shoulders above the competition UPDATE: Whether you are an armchair bird lover, or a serious ornithologist you will not find a better bird app for your Android device in the Google Play Store. Not only is the database huge (covering all of North America plus Hawaii) but the user interface, especially after upgrades made in the latest release, make it incredibly easy to filter, search, research, and compare different species. iBird Pro is by far the best bird app for your portable device.
Big changes in this update.
■ The database no longer needs to be extracted. The app reads all of the data it needs from a single file.
■ iBird will prompt to clean up any old extracted databases it finds. Give it a few minutes to finish.
■ Favorites and notes are preserved as long as the user does not uninstall the app.
