Customer Reviews

Awesomely great- until it CRASHES!!!

This is a brilliant app, uniquely useful to locate both birds and birding hotspots. Unfortunately the latest version crashes almost every time I open it, requiring me to restart my iPhone. I've re-installed multiple times and gotten guidance from BirdsEye technical support. Their final suggestion was that I get a newer iPhone!!! If the latest version of the app does not work on an iPhone4, they should make the former version of the software available. My score of 2 reflects the great features of the app before the update (5) and the utter impossibility of getting it to run on my phone now (1).

Difficult to navigate

This ap has lots of great features but I have found it to be a bit confusing to navigate. Still haven't figured out how to make different lists at different locations. Although I have an account my sightings don't seem to show up on the map. The Texas OS Icon opens and then immediately closes. I've been checking for an update for a few months but there hasn't been one. I think it has potential but needs some work. I'll keep using it - for now

Trip Planning Made Easy

Have used the app to plan my upcoming trip to Texas. Saves so much time from sifting through checklists online. I mostly use the "Browse by Location" feature to see what year birds/lifers are near where I am going. Then I search for those species with "Search by Name" to find alternate sites. Intuitive and much more stable than the previous version.
