Having the extra contents the iPad version provides is a added benefit. There areas of improvement ,like interactive quizzes and tests after Id articles I would also like to see the county reports as interactive maps which could link back to previous sightings or allow for selection of a single species.
overall I am pleased with this app

Perfect for the novice.

I admit I was a little concerned when I first purchased my subscription, I thought it may be a publication aimed at the expert. I must say that I am pleasantly surprised how well it bridges the gap, well written, not dumbed down and a must for anyone with an interest in ornithology at whatever level.
