Customer Reviews

Excellent (5 stars)
One of only a few non business related apps I own. Large app but well worth the memory space required.

Keeps getting better (5 stars)
Always by my side when I go birding - both to help me track my lists and inform me when I see something new. Indispensable.

Great improvements, great tool (5 stars)
Addition of the callouts for field marks was just brilliant. And the ability to make them appear and disappearsmart. Packed with information, ability to find birds wherever you are via the incredible eBird database, I can't believe this app doesn't cost a whole lot more.

One person complained about update to 2.0. I updated without flaw using Wifi. Another complained about poor graphics and UI. What? The photos are spectacular, t
