What People are Saying:
“Now every birder can have the equivalent of a rare bird alert and comprehensive field guide wrapped into a single mobile app.” - Gary Langham, vice president and chief scientist for Audubon
“Instead of the hefty field guides, the apps give the nature photographer a very portable and lightweight library of natural history information.” – Jim Clark, Outdoor Photographer Magazine
AppPicker (“Best of” Lists, Jan 2013): “Audubon Birds…largely regarded as the best bird watching app…”
2011 APPY Award Finalist
“All I can say is WOW and double WOW! I have had Audubon Birds for a couple of years and have seen it grow into the BEST bird app for iOS! ...I am just blown away with all the new additions. My favorite is showing all the birds in a group (thumbnails) and when tapped lightly the name shows up. What a way to learn new birds. I just cannot express how much I love the update. Thank you…” - E Uhls

Fail requires login
Been using for years as a paid app. Put up with the login prompt which could be skipped with an extra step or two. Now when I started the update it says welcome to the free version and requires an e-mail address to login. Cannot get around it even though the version notes say they eliminated the prompt. Not so. How do I get back and access the app I paid for.
Also these more recent versions seem to require an internet connection to get pictures, sound, and range. The app is about 1/3 original size further indicating this is case that database is incomplete.
Rendering the app useless as a field guide.
Don't pay money for this
I have never really liked this app but I paid money for it so I just sucked it up. It's slow, The audio doesn't only half the time, it doesn't "save" your place etc. but what really pushed me over the edge was last week they made me enter my email or I could not access the app. I was furious! I paid money for this app and still can't access without giving my email away!! I emailed the company and their reply said: "thanks for all you do for birds". For the principle of it.... DON'T purchase!!
Login Doesn't Work
I purchased this app a few years ago and it had been working great. I liked being able to save my bird sightings.
Now, it keeps asking for me to login but even after waiting 24 hours for a new password, it still won't let me in. So, now I can no longer access my list of bird sightings OR add any new sightings.
I'm surprised that the Audubon Society puts their name on an app with such poor technical support.
