Useful app. Very useful app with added benefit of being able to play bird call/song. I am pleased and use this ebook often.

Excellent content, interface could be improved. This app has a wealth of information. For every bird you get: # several illustrated images showing male, female, juvenile etc where appropriate # a few paragraphs of information in text form #a map showing distribution #most have few audio files with the call and song. ---Negatives: #The interface, while usable, could be far more streamlined and could take advantage of smartphone capabilities such as gestures #while you can generate a list of birds you have to do so by logging sightings which is tedious

not bad. some things could be useful A faff to set up, but once done, it's pretty good. Things that would be useful: * ability to make more than 1 list. realistically, 2 should be a minimum, preferably 3 or 4: Life List, Year List, Patch list etc? * there doesn't seem to be any way of checking how many birds are in My List, other than listing birds by location, for example, then adding all location results? *the log system is a bit dimwitted: it lists birds by type in the field guide (good), but alphabetically in 'My List' (bad) so for example, Bewick's Swan is right at the other end of a list to the whooper swan. *A few more birds. 290 birds isn't bad, but the excellent 'RSPB Pocket Birds' has 320, and the Collins bird guide has over 700. As for the pictures, they're good enough. The RSPB ones - paper or electronic - aren't as sharp as the Collins ones, but even so they'e not bad. It works fine as a quick bird guide, but doesn't yet replace a good handbook. In short, serious birders look elsewhere - at the moment. especially for £5. non serious ones, you could probably get as useful, simple bird books for cheaper. A decent app that has so much potential to be a brilliant one.

Doesn't work! Would love to review it! Paid for it, downloaded, installed the large file it then downloaded and when I clicked "Open" it crashed - unable to create application database.
