Would be useful to be able to share a trip

I love this app after a few days use.

I would love to be able to share Entries with another user of the app... If you’re out with a friend you could record on one phone and then share with the friend later.

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.
