Minor Bug fixes/Improved Performance
The Best — and Still Improving
Peterson’s Field Guide continues to be the best birding guide available on the iPad. I have had several iterations of this app, and have always been impressed with its capabilities. And yet they continue to find ways to improve it, making it easier to use. For example, managing and updating life lists and sightings is now even easier than before.
I own and occasionally use three other birding apps, but Peterson's is my mainstay. It's so good that I finally stopped using my paper field guide last year and now only use this app.
Field marks missing
The biggest discriminator for using Peterson field guides over the other guides I've got on my phone is the trademarked Peterson Identification System using arrows to show field marks. While the field marks are shown on the screens with multiple birds as they appear in the familiar book pages, if you are looking at a page showing the single, specific bird, they are not present. For example, if you use the otherwise *wonderful* filtered bird search, you will never see a field mark at all. They only show up if you use the browse birds method. IMHO this flaw is a critical must-fix for the next release.
Illustrations And Bird Calls; Fully Supports iPad Pro
This is a really nice reference that has excellent illustrations that you expect from Peterson. It also has birdcalls, maps and descriptive text. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that it supports the full screen resolution of the iPad Pro. It also supports Slide Over and Split View multitasking on compatible iPads.
