“All I can say is WOW and double WOW! I have had Audubon Birds for a couple of years and have seen it grow into the BEST bird app for iOS! ...I am just blown away with all the new additions. My favorite is showing all the birds in a group (thumbnails) and when tapped lightly the name shows up. What a way to learn new birds. I just cannot express how much I love the update. Thank you…” - E Uhls

Waste of money
Used to be a quasi-reliable app but it has quickly gone downhill. I’m not sure if this is because Green Mountain Digital took over or what. As far as the bird data goes, it’s one of the best apps out there. However, if you actually want to use said data you’re probably going to be extremely frustrated. I haven’t been able to log in for weeks now. There is no area to find your username—I didn’t forget it but I thought I’d give that a try—and the password reset never sends the dang email. This leads to another problem; why can’t the system remember my password!? I haven’t changed it and yet I alway get a “so not your password” message. Whatever you do, don’t try and go through Green Mountain for support; there’s a 20% chance that you might get some sort of support. I finally found a way to reset my password through the Audubon Guides site but be aware that it might take a few tries for that site to stop throwing “can’t send” error messages. Of course, I’ll have to go through it again because it can’t remember a dang thing!
Sufficient data, poor functionality, poor support
This app excels in its data. The field song recordings are excellent. The range maps may be questionable but hopefully they are being updated as users add sightings. My main problems are two fold. The first problem is with the apps ability to use my current location when I post a sighting. I have checked the privacy settings on my iPhone and this app has permission to use my current location, however it always shows my sightings in New Hampshire when I'm actually much further south. The second is with customer service. They rarely respond to inquiries I make. This is an expensive app and I think responding to a question from someone that posts plenty of sightings should be a priority. Fix these problems and I'll consider upgrading by rating.
Location doesn't work.
The content of the app itself is great. The recordings are very good. The photos are very nice. But if you want to make a list of your sightings, it gets very frustrating when every single time you go to add one you have to drag a silly little dropping down to the proper state that you are located within. I do not live in Vermont, but my sightings are always fixed at Vermont. It is not a problem with my iPhone location services. This is a problem with the app and I can't believe they have not fix this. I tried to create a new account with a new location but the location is already fixed in Vermont and there is no way to change it.
