"If you’re looking for the most expansive digital key, the encyclopedia-like iBird excels. It has the most sophisticated algorithm, incorporates live location, shows search results in real time (with a slide show option) and has the most fine-grained advanced key choices."
-The Quest for a Bird Identification Key by Diana Doyle in ABA BIRDING magazine, March/April 2014 issue

I THE BEST APP IN EXISTENCE!!!
I know so many different birds now with this app. I have learned so much about them and I even learned how to attract certain birds at my feeders. Im a huge fan of birds, and I always got those giant bird books. But they were annoying to carry around all the time. With this app it is easy to use, lots of things to learn, and what suprised me is that this app runs great and works perfectly. If you have the money, and you love birds, this is the app for you!
I Love This App!
I have been using various iterations of this app since its inception. I frequently used "What Bird" before. I find the search function to be very helpful. I love the fact that it includes birds from Hawaii, Alaska, plus much of Canada and Mexico. It is certainly quicker and lighter than carrying three field guides-or even ONE for that matter. It is not my only birding app, but if I had only one- this would be it!
Perfect birding app
The best thing about it is that it resides on your device. You can use it anywhere, no internet connection required! Plenty of times you'll be birding where there's no signal available.
And they upgrade it a lot without additional charge.
Easy to use. Searches actually return useful results.
