I found that this app has saved me on countless occasions from forgetting how many or what birds were seen. It may seem complicated at first, but is rather easy to catch on. My only issue (which can't really be fixed) was when I went to Costa Rica and there was very little internet and no cell coverage. That is where offline checklists kind-of work, if you are familiar with the birds in the area. All in all, this app is wonderful for quick notes while in the field.
This app will NOT let me save anything! Not my location, my lists, the birds I've seen... nothing. I don't have time to redo things if it says its keeping it... uninstalling! Waste of time & data
Impossible to use on my phone! Trying to set up place on map where I saw the bird and place marker was off by a few blocks and I wasn't able to change it. I this day it shouldn't be so difficult to do this. Uninstalled.
Can't imagine why the app cant just automatically georeference incidental sightings. You can't just enter random sightings without manually entering your lat and long or a city (imprecise)- sad! 😜.
Password reset not working for the app. Changed my password when I got the app, and cannot log into the app although no issue logging in on a browser. No issues logging into the app with our bird clubs account which hasn't had a password change. Others have also reported this issue to Facebook. Hopefully this is resolved soon as I love ebird as a platform for recording and accessing observations. I will update this review when this bug is fixed. Edit (6/3/17): appears the issue may be symbols contained within my username not being accepted by the app rather than a change in password. Details in email I have sent. Please look into it and resolve ASAP, otherwise the app is unusable for me
The most useful elements of eBird for *finding* birds aren't included. It's basically a difficult-to-use personal list tool. And for that, there are many better apps available.
Update to "My eBird" to allow viewing of nearby eBird hotspots and personal locations.
