Handy, but needs improving
The app only provides small amounts of the information that is shown on the main website, perhaps understandably, but I feel that it would be better to scrap the photo gallery and provide more sightings information instead. After all, it is supposed to be a guide to what's been found, rather than a photo identification guide to the various species.
I have to admit I am a little disappointed. I do use the main website when I'm at home, but much of the information I get from that is not available on the app when I'm out birding.
Have been using this app a long time now. But now having problems pay my subscription but still can't get details have emailed twice for assistance and none forthcoming customer service is very poor if non existent
