Ratings and Reviews
What a waste of money! The app is no use because it is not a page by by page replica of the book by Inskipp although the app photo is that of Inskipp’s book. The app is just an indexed list and that serves no purpose because when you see a bird in field you do not know it’s name. You do know where roughly it could be and that is helped by page by page replica of the book. I sincerely hope the developer sees this review and agrees to take back the app against refund. Cleverly, the “contact us” feature does not work on the app and one can not send mail thru the app. These kinds of app developers are a disgrace to Apple Store.
Mismatch between bird visual and the description
Pheasant tailed jacana has the description of bronze winged jacana, bronze winged of crab plover, crab plover of ibisbill...
I don't know how many more such discrepancies and that too when you pay a grand sum of Rs. 1800/-
Does the job
Serves us with just the right information needed. The app could have used technology in a much better way so that it could provide some dynamism but what it does is it plainly shows the content of the book in the app.
The list feature is good though. The app lacks very important Index plate of the Inskipp book which helps users to identify the category of the bird by looking into the pictured index plate.
A feature where birds can be searched and filtered by shape, size of bird, prominent colours, distribution using GPS location would be a great value addition which justifies the purpose of Digitalising field guide book!
