  • 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.
  • Hiccough resolved

    By revcate
    There was a moment when I was dismayed thinking I had to pay again for this app that I had begun to rely on, so I tried to replace it, but I really like its features, so I reached out to the help desk and it actually turned out fine and I am using it again happily
  • Can’t restore purchase

    By Mr Gweb
    Liked this app. Have been using it for several years. Got a new iPad and had to reinstall the app. Unfortunately can not restore my purchase. Very disappointed. This is a update to my original review. The support staff at the company that now owns this app was very helpful with restoring my purchase and I now have full access to all the data in the app. I’m still somewhat concerned with why this happened. In particular, will I have to go through this again if I have to reinstall the app for some reason?
  • Great customer service

    By Renee N.
    I bought this app on my I-phone and received a notice the trial period is over and I, if I wanted to still have it, had to pay again. Update: I e-mailed customer service and they honored my membership. They opened the account access so that I can use it again. THANK YOU.
  • Five star review

    By Wilmuth cook
    I deleted my original great review and am only giving it one star. I paid for the original and don’t want to pay again. I’ll just go back to a book.
  • Rip-off!!! Not worth additional money!!!

    By Jana 46
    I purchased this app several years ago, and I've always had full access to all the species. Recently when I brought it back down from the cloud, I found that I had very limited access to the content, and it prompted me to purchase the app for full access. I think that having to purchase app upgrades is a customer rip-off and definitely not worth it. I will use my other birding apps instead.
  • Nice app. Well done for such a complex app.

    By Cbraudy
    I find the app really useful as a pocket guide. IPhone (and iPad at home). It’s quite well thought out — and presents a the North American field guide quite well. I do have one recurring problem: the Bird Search features uses GPS. If I’m in a poor reception area or out the country (Mexico), the app freezes. I must close it (iPhone 6s) and reopen and only use Browse Birds. I hope the developers keep enhancing the app!
