App Reviews

  • Not free

    By Diogie's trainer
    Downloaded app for this bird I’d because it said free. Loved it for the first 3 days then WHAM! I have to purchase this for 9.99. Oh, parts are still free but big chunks are locked. All I ask is be honest up front.
  • Missing much

    By SusanCulbert
    I found this app to be sorely lacking. Bird search by name often cannot find a bird. It is not user friendly, nor intuitive. I’m searching for a better option.
  • No way.

    By Snae
    I am not going to buy this app again. I see others have had the problem when switching to a new phone, so just fix it. I’ve never had this problem with other apps I’ve bought.
  • Outdated app

    By eselqueso
    Why do I have to pay again to use an app I paid almost $10 to purchase? Update: heard back from the developer who asked me to contact them via an invalid email address. Figured out the correct address but still waiting on a response many days later. Second update: Contacted customer service via contact form on the website and have now regained access to the app contents. Updated review to three stars instead of one, because the app is many cycles out of date, including outdated keyboard and no iPhone X compatibility but customer service was friendly and helpful and willing to fix the access problem.
  • Return buttons

    By 802aaa
    After drilling down into menus the return buttons returned to blank screens. I attempted to contact the developer and got a 404 error. Not good for a relatively expensive app.
  • What a rip off!

    By Jackster847
    After reinstalling the app and having paid for it originally, now I have to pay for it again.
  • lack of timely support, wanted me to repurchase app

    By Jay Bird, TN
    I bought this app several years ago and have used it often. It was my primary guide to bird identification in the continental US. I recently tried to restore this purchase on a new iPad, but I get a message that I need to purchase it again. I like the app, but not enough to pay for it multiple times. I see others have had this issue too. After contacting customer support for this problem someone responded in about a week. Based on the slow response and the inability to use the app for which I have already paid for about a week, I rate it three star and would suggest others to be weary of purchasing it until they can resolve this issues that so many of have also experienced.
  • Support is difficult to dealt with.

    By Bugbean
    Let me start by saying I love this app. I do not love how it has stopped working. I tried contacting support but you get a 404 error. Or as HLT listed it four-oh-four! This is the first time I had this problem. The app will start but it won't go past home page. I am stuck on browse bird or search bird. I will gladly change my rating once my app works again. HLT please feel free to contact me I will gladly respond to email.
  • Pay again?

    By Kevbodinski
    I bought this app several years ago. I bought a new iPad and while upgrading to newer versions of iOS got a message I needed to buy it again. Not right. Time for you guys to make me whole again.
  • Purchase again.

    By Phototurtle
    I purchased this app years ago and switched to a new Iphone. Now it says I have a certain amount of time to pay for the full version or in assuming the app with not open. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Update : received an email and my account was fixed. Thank you! This is great customer service.
