Ratings and Reviews

Disappointing

Darrell Fagala

I purchased this app to help me with identifying birds on my upcoming trip to the Tuscany region of Italy. When I tried to use the app I ounces the sketches to be disappointedly inadequate. There's not enough detail to properly identify the nuances of each species. Also, the number of species included were not substantial. There were a few species I saw that weren't included in the app. So...disappointing. Am purchasing a book that is substantially more comprehensive and thorough.

Search feature is rubbish

What’s the point of being able to search if you can’t narrow it down by type? You should be able to select wading birds vs song birds, for instance.

Very User-friendly and a Good Supplement

I was looking for a good field guide app to introduce me to European birds. I'm a U.S. birder and the format reminds me of iBird and Peterson field guides. This is a very easy to use app where you can look up birds by common name and family in the main menu or scroll through the bottom images on the screen. The information provided is a good start on getting to know the individual species and their calls and songs, although I would have liked more information, such as a description of the sounds, conservation status and additional photographs instead of just color plates/illustrations. However, I do like the plates of the birds in flight as that is something I haven't seen in fields guides for North American birds. Overall, this is a good app for the price m, information and amount of bird species featured.
