Brilliant, Brilliant, Brilliant
Bought this little beauty for a mere 79p. Forget what it says about their being in-app-purchases for the community pack. All is included for in the price. So when they described it as now free, they was not fobbing buyers off. Bird calls, descriptions, quiz, photos then the added free bonus of the community. Spot a bird and it gets sent to the community giving your location. Also you have a directory of Nature Sites should that be your thing. Buy this now, trust me, you won't be disappointed.
Excellent! Best app I've used
I have this on my ipad & iphone, best app I have ever used I love it! I just use it for my garden but also great for the more experienced spotter. Easy to use, full A-Z of birds including photos, sounds & info on the species. Search by adding info like habitat, colours etc & suggestions appear for you to identify what you have seen. Record sightings in a diary or like me on the favourites list. Also has a basic fun quiz. Please try this app it's so worth it!
I've had this app for two years now and use it most days. The beauty of it is the way you can keep it up to date....unlike the myriad of reference books I have which (a) aren't updated for free, and (b) don't have the wonderful calls.
Also the support staff are very helpful and understanding and responded very quickly to what turned out to be a nonexistent problem! I recommend this app wholeheartedly.
