Sasol eBirds of Southern Africa
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
"In southern Africa the Sasol eBirds would undoubtedly be my first choice. The text is detailed, the navigation system is user friendly and the opportunity to listen to recordings of calls and songs is a huge asset. Above all, the superb paintings by Norman Arlott and Peter Hayman have stood the test of time and are more detailed, more accurate and more life-like than anything on offer in other birding apps for the region.” — Mark Cocker, author of Birds and People.

Below is my review written about a year ago...no real change in the app...maybe just a gadget to make money?
No listing for the Grey Crowned Crane..
For the price of the app it is disappointing that the search interface is so complicated. Also....Where is the Purple Crested Loerie?? I am sure it is part if the Southern African Bird Population? You really need to update the App to actually have all the species represented. It is such a cool app when you can find the species you are looking for.
A real good app
Sadly the errors in this app are not being corrected. The distribution map for the White-browned Scrub Robin was mixed up with the White-browed Robin-Chat. I am sure the errors have been noted some where but not to improve the app in revisions is betrayal of those who pay for the app. Poor show.
