Audio works on my iPhone 6


I normally leave my phone in silent mode throughout the day because the vibrate is sufficient in nearly every case. Well apparently not here. After turning the phone off of silent mode the sound came out fine.

Oh yeah, and the app is easy to use. It’s not flashy and I wish there was a search option, but that’s not why I have this app anyway. It works.

Doesn’t actually work


I scanned the codes for the bird calls and it would pull up the bird songs. But when you press play on a particular sound or song it doesn’t actually make any sound. I made sure my volume was all the way up. I’m not connected to Bluetooth so I know the sound is not going through some other speaker. It’s just not working.

No sound plays


I have the same problem. The audio appears and when I push play it the bar scrolls but No Sound is heard. I hope this is fixable because I love the idea!
