“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

Could be great
I love this app and have been using it for over a year however it is so buggy that I might have to give it up. Cons: it shuts down randomly. I have reloaded the app a number of times which addresses the issue until it happens again.
It continues to randomly not accept my password and the tech assistance for this issue has no continuity. When I request a new password, I either get no answer for days or am sent two or even three different links to change my password. This was terrible during a recent trip to the Everglades when I really needed the app. Pros: really easy to navigate, excellent photos and ID tips; data for recent sightings is up to date and really useful. Connection to Ebird lists is also great but it forgets where I am located and is a bit chastising when you don't have a photo to back up your citing. All in all, it still could be better.
Great when it works
This app is so useful, when it works. I don't know if it just crashed on me or what, but with the latest version I can't get it to show any birds at all! Nothing comes up when I search, and when I enter "browse by shape" or " browse by family" or anything like that! I can't access any bird profiles whatsoever! When it used to work, though, it was such a great tool to have in the field, regardless of the skill level of the birder using it. I would have given it five stars in an instant, if only it had not crashed. It would definitely be worth the money if it was more reliable.
Could be great. But...
I used to use the national geographic bird app until I found this one. The thing that really made a difference for me was actual pictures of birds, instead of field guide artist renditions. The ability to listen to the bird calls/sounds is very clumsy (you have to hit the button just right or it won't play). And placing the location feature for sightings used to work 50% of the time. But since the recent update it won't work at all. That's kind of a deal breaker for me. So until it is fixed, it looks like the national geographic app will be my goto
