"Opening the Newman’s app was like meeting Ken again – elegant, simple and shining with his wonderful art. The groupings make perfect and immediate sense, the page layout is instantly assimilated in a glance – this app now sets the ornithological standard and deserves a full 5-star rating."

– Dave Pepler, Presenter of Groen on DSTV

---------------------------------------------------------------------

In a world characterised by speed and urgency, birding offers the antithesis – a chance to sit still, unwind and simply observe – whether in one’s own garden or in a remote area of the bush.

This Newman’s Birds app is the perfect companion for all birders, from the beginner to the keenest twitcher. It is based on the 2010 commemorative edition of Newman’s Birds of Southern Africa, one of the most popular birding guides in the region since its initial publication in 1983.

FREE VERSION:
Try before you buy – there is a free lite version with full app functionality, limited to 60 species, so that you can see how it works before purchasing this app. Search for Newman's Birds of Southern Africa LITE.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING THE LIFE LIST:
This app includes a cloud-based life list that stores your sightings online. You need to log in to the life list while you have internet connectivity, but once logged in, you can add sightings when you don’t have an internet connection. When you next connect to the internet, the life list will sync, and your new entries should be added to your list. The life list will sync to all your devices that have the app installed and where you are logged in with the same details.

Thoughtfully designed birding app

I appreciate the way the app is designed but would suggest a more consistent presentation perhaps with subheads identifying feeding habits, breeding, plumage & other identifying features, habitat, etc. Still, kudos on the app!

Great App for safariLIVE!

I got hooked on safariLIVE many months ago and this app is an awesome guide while they are “Birding” on the Safari drives and walks! Very comprehensive app, but very easy to navigate and use, as well! Guides you through the many, many species of African birds! Pictures are very clear and well-defined for adding sightings to your list! Well worth the cost...

Decent app

This app would warrant 5 stars except that it often freezes after a search, requiring a restart.

Developer Response ,

Hello. Thank you for the nice review. I'm sorry for the freezing issue you mention. We'll look in to it - we've not seen this or had it reported before. It might be to do with filtering by location and GPS not being found. If you have any more info (e.g. remember what filters you had) please email us at info@appdeveloperstudio.co.za. Thank you again for you review.
