I have the free limited version which only has about 160 birds, not over 800. I would like to upgrade and am willing to pay but the link doesn’t work and I can’t find access to the full version. The limited version does not have swifts and swallows.
I can't believe this app is free! My kids and I have had a great time listening to the calls of the different birds and identifying birds we see at our backyard feeder. Fun!
I learned my birds using Peterson’s. Why can’t they put the same content in an app? I’d happily pay for it, just like I did my old bird book. In the app, Certain bird groupings require “in app purchases” but then won’t allow you to purchase it. Pointless and worthless. ETA I contacted support. They just say “try again” when you have better WiFi. I stayed at a friends who has WiFi speeds > 50 mbps on upload and download. It still doesn’t work. Support has ignored my follow up email.
Well purchased this app. It is a little difficult to use but once you figure it out I like it. I use it only for my own reference and do have not created an account. Cannot see a reason to do this. I just want to identify a bird. I would recommend this app.
Many thanks to Higher Learning Technologies for their great customer service in restoring my ability to use this app. They were professional, friendly, and very quick to respond to a problem of which they were not at fault. The app itself is very good and I’m happy to have it in my bird ID toolbox again.
This app is really awesome. Especially when my son wants to hear what a certain bird sounds like. There was a slight hiccup when I was asked to repurchase the app after I had paid full price for it years earlier, but customer service was amazing and helped me out with no problem.
Most of the features in the a app are great. The bird search feature is horrible. I live in Michigan and if I do a search by state, county, and month I get results such as Brown-capped Rosy Finch which only lives in Colorado. Another case, the Golden-crowned Sparrow only lives on the California coast. Of the 196 birds pulled shown by these filter combinations 21 of them are summer and the rest come nowhere near Michigan at anytime of year. If it was a free app I wouldn’t mind so much but it’s a relatively expensive with a well known name brand attached to it. If I were Peterson Field Guides I would be looking for a different developer.
I purchased this app many years ago and loved it. Kept track of my life list and was very helpful. Now I had to get a new iPhone and find out I have to pay for it again.
Like so many have expected, I paid for the app once and I have no access the the application. 😒
I acquired this app several years ago had a list going of species and suddenly after a period non-use my “trial period” has expired is shown apparently 8 years is a “trial”
