Ratings and Reviews


Fantastic app, keeps crashing

This is a great app to have in the field, especially for comparing birds side by side. The whole db downloads so you don't need Internet connection. However, it has let me down twice by crashing; the app just closes out and won't re-open. I have to delete and download again when I'm in a wifi area, which is no good when you're out in the sticks. Don't use for keeping lists, you'll lose them. I will give full stars when the app stops crashing. Unreliable.


Great app !

I really enjoy this app and would definitely recommend it to anyone thinking of purchasing it, especially if you are an avid bird watcher or just gain satisfaction from identifying birds in your area. Not only does it have so many different birds to choose from and look at, it also has pictures and even audio clips of the sounds each bird makes. Very helpful - 5 stars ⭐️
