BIRDS REUNITED!

This is a well thought out, flexible and beautifully presented app. It has become the most enduring app. on my iPad. As if watching birds was not such a great pastime enough, being able to make notes on birds seen, where they were, and what they were doing, enhances the whole aspect of this rewarding activity. And as if this was not enough, being able to hear wonderful recordings of each bird species for various type of call, adds further to the enjoyment. If you are interested in nature at all and birds particularly, GET THIS WONDERFUL APP., you will not regret it. The latest update allowing for landscape viewing is just such welcome and great addition to this fabulous app. Also Looking forward to viewing all the new images provided in the latest update. ENJOY!

Awkward but no choice

I'll tell it straight- I loved "Twitcher" but it doesn't now work on ios8 and they have no intention of supporting it any more so an alternative had to be found. iBirds looked the best but is it just me or are some apps. designed by people with their brains wired quite differently - maybe Americans? The app has great content but is void of any style; the navigation is complex, unintuitive and bewildering. Twitcher gave you Long|Lat AND the nearest address across the whole Europe for instance - iBird manages just Long|Lat. Making any Birding List is frustratingly complex to the point that they intend to offer a separate app. just for this purpose in the near future. A separate app. - that should make it easier - not.
In summary: over £10 for rich content with poor design. Not convinced it was worth it at all.

The bird guide of choice

I can say that this Bird App is in my opinion the best of the bunch. It has a really sensible and intuitive layout and feel, a tremendous amount of information but without feeling cluttered and some of the best collection of bird calls and songs. Both drawings and pictures give you the best aid for identification and a simple button to list of similar species for checking any alternatives. You can make your own notes, add your own pictures - I have been using it for several years and I am still finding new features. Its a joy to use and a pleasure to review although I feel I am still not quite doing it justice.
