I love this app and use it everyday. But the problem I have is it is real laggy on my btw LG G6 phone. It takes 1-2 seconds to go to different windows or screens and to play the sounds. Please optimize this app to work faster. The Audubon app doesn't have this problem.
Wish I could store the database on my SD card, like so other apps I have installed. But other than that it is great!
I love that it lets me look up the different types of birds that visit my feeders. I also love to call them.
My first bird app. It helps me identify birds at our feeder, but then, I find a wealth of information organized in the different categories, like range, sounds, habitat and behavior, etc. The photos really back up identification using the art work. The only problem - I find myself spending more time on the app than I planned!
iBird's Cloud Sync solution has issues - good luck downloading the database; I have given up. Unless you do your birdwatching from the kitchen window, you are going to want the database on your device. That should be the default. Moving on to Sibley ...
