Ratings and Reviews
It's not letting me access the app even though I have an Audubon account. It wants people who are already registered with Audubon to enter their password twice (which seems silly). I enter mine and tap to go to the next field; then the app locks up and I can't get any farther.
Date: several years later.
I can get into the app now. The owl calls make it great all by themselves.
Very Informative apps!
The Audubon apps were the first I ever purchased, starting 10 years ago. I happily paid $11 for each back then...! The apps are so impressive with all of the various descriptors, and I especially love the bird vocalizations which allow one to identify birds without being able to see them. This owl app is in that league as well!
Cool but buggy app
I downloaded this app for my toddler, and the download video command seems like it could help for viewing videos in the absence of an internet connection. However, the videos appear to be bugged as tapping on any video prompts you to download the app content, even after you have already successfully done so. The pictures and owl calls all work, this appears limited to the videos (which is one of the biggest reasons I downloaded). Otherwise, a nice app!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
