Outstanding - needs iOS update
I’ve used many birding apps in my travels - and this one is clearly one of the best. While it does - as another reviewer pointed out - need an update to continue to work smoothly with iOS 12 - it still works better than most - and the number of pics and excellent audio and detailed info makes this a real gem. The glitches (mine erred when accessing my location once) are minor. Well worth the investment.
Slow app on iOS 11
App sometimes freezes when doing a search. Are there any updates planned anytime soon?
the book is very handy but this application is more cost effective and awesome! some of the birds species has more than 10 pictures, bird calls and many more details. I love it!
