Good App but Has it’s Limitations

I recently saw a pair of Common Mergansers in the UK but the app didn’t give me the option to add the species from its list; instead I had to say I saw 2 Red-Headed Mergansers - the list of species needs updating.

I’d also like to share information with groups of friends to see which species of birds we have all spotted. It’ll be useful for information gathering for various Bird Watching groups.

Easy to use - good support

After having used another app for logging I have recently moved to this one and find it far easier and intuitive. Logging is straightforward and looking at previous lists is simple. In addition when I had a query it was answered quickly with another follow up email later to check if all was still ok. Fully recommended.

Bringing order to my bird list

This was an app I didn't know I needed - until I started using it to record observations in the field. Now I am a convert, and have even started entering all my old bird lists formerly kept in notebooks and scraps of paper. Very easy to use - and great to have the list automatically synchronised between iPhone iPad and mac. Even the "free" version is very functional.
