I tried a sample edition of a similar product which was a few quid cheaper but was not impressed with the quality of the artwork. I own the Eighth Edition of the field guide so it seemed sensible to buy the digital equivalent. I was not disappointed; the same high quality plates augmented by photos and sound, in a very intuitive interface. I look forward to using it down under this Christmas!
