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.
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
Was great till they updated it. After they updated it it wants to update taxomy every few hours. Than you have to get online before you can use it again.
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.
I'm not sure I understand how to use the program properly. I often want to record occasional observation (car window, hiking for other purposes than birding), but it looks like I have to actually relate each observation to some checklist, which is time-consuming. Why can't I just record the observation and concentrate on the details about birds, letting phone take care of details like time and location? And group data to checklist's later, if necessary? Also, getting my data out of the app seems strange: go to web page, submit request, wait for e-mail and then start processing. Why not provide simple API with access to all my observations? Looking for other solutions for now. (Edit: cannot find anything better, changed score to 3).
Update to "My eBird" to allow viewing of nearby eBird hotspots and personal locations.
