>> " …this app...is worth it's weight in gold, everything works well and is easy to use, and you wouldn't be able to find anything this good for less."
>> "The home screen is populated with clear photographic icons representing logical groups ... making it very easy to navigate, find and access the species of interest."
Birdwatch Ireland writes:
>> "I must say that I was impressed with how fast and responsive this app is to use, with no noticeable lagging or waiting for sounds to load. Navigating between species is a breeze and, by and large, the selection of “cuts” for most species is very impressive"
>> " ...the user can quickly jump between via the simple but effective control interface."
All species can be browsed according to their taxonomical classification and can thus be easily compared. Spectrograms to all sounds as well as high quality photographs and descriptions to each species are also included. As a novelty and practical advantage, multiple songs and calls of one species are arranged consecutively on separate tracks. Some tracks consist of several calls, which can independently be chosen and played immediately without the need to fast-forward. This adds up to 2,837 bird sounds altogether! Explanations to all recordings are given, bird names are given in English, Latin and German, French, Italian, Spanish and other languages, see below.
