Lots to improve but still a good app I'm not a bird watcher so the always exact identification in field is not the most important for me. I'm a wildlife photographer and this is the best app available so far for identifying birds of Europe. Audobon does good guides but they don't care about the European android market (they've had YEARS to get something done) and that pisses me off so no more books bought from them. I still like this app a lot but it's a bit expensive and there is a lot of improvements to be done in it, but until others enter the market I guess they don't have any incentive. Distribution maps is of course one big improvement to be done and another is making the step by step identification by sight more advanced.
Buy it for the bird sounds How else could you have the sounds of 435 European birds in your pocket? Pin-tailed sandgrouse, Bonelli's eagle, Thekla lark...... fantastic to have everything in one place! Use it alongside a conventional field guide if you need detailed distribution maps. Well worth the 10 euros, but only 4 stars awarded because some of the sounds are extremely short, and there doesn't appear to be a distinction between calls and songs. The identification guide is a useful extra, well thought-out and nicely arranged to narrow down the choices with difficult groups like waders. It would be better if the developers' website showed a list of birds included, rather than the list of authors. Without such a list, it feels slightly risky to buy the app "in the dark", (although the impressively large number of birds included means that you're unlikely to be disappointed.)
Terrible - please do not buy. There is no distribution map. Probably the second most important bird identification tool after the picture, is a map showing where the birds are found. I've been birding for seven years and never have I seen such a useless birding guide. I feel ripped off for spending so much money on an almost useless app. Darn!
Dispite some low ratings, its actually very good. I have been in contract with the developers months ago and the issue of the lack of maps is supposed to had been in the process of been sorted but tried to email them last week to get an update and its like they have vannished! The pictures are taken by professionals and though slightly low resolution, are of good quality (designed for phones). The sounds that i've tried were clear and loud. The app is well worth the price!
Sound files a must. I mainly use this app for the sound files which are of good quality, clear and of a good length to give accurate support to identification.
Poor Disappointed. No maps. Search feature is very basic. OK app but not worth the price.
