Poor search

Really poor search facility. I wish I stuck with my book. This app has the same functionality as a good book.

A good start

Looking forward to taking this app to India. I have the heavy book already which I'll leave behind. It needs some navigation issues sorted out with the back button which should be taking you to previous page instead of back to the search window. Also it would be useful to be able to browse more easily. I look forward to seeing the refinements. Will add more stars as it gets even better.

Not much use unless up already know the bird

This is a very frustrating application. Unless you know the bird or its taxonomic category you observe and then have to scroll painstakingly through to find it - by which time of course it has long departed. This should allow filtering by size, location, colour and habitat - which is common to almost all other apps I have come across for birds. Pretty useless as it stands unless you just want to look at bird pictures.
