  • not great

    I am not on expert birder, but know what I am doing. This app makes identification challenging, and impossible. The birds are listed alphabetically by their proper names so if you don't know that the quetzl is called the resplendent quetzl, there is no way to find the bird. I tried many times to filter by bird characteristics and not one time did it give me the relevant bird. The photos are no good either. I am EXTREMELY disapointed because my trip to Costa Rica is over and the app didn't help me once.
  • Great App

    Several of us had this app on our iPhones on our recent trip to Costa Rica. It ended up being a very useful tool.
  • Back button for Similar Species

    It's a good app with a good number of photos and songs. When I click similar species it doesn't give me a back button to go back to where I was. You have to reset and go back to the bird which I find kind of annoying.
  • Needs work

    Released too early. Lots of omissions. Same group that made Panama guide. Wait awhile before you buy.
  • Excellent

    I have now been using for 2 months on my visit to Costa Rica. Since I was use to Ibird Pro took a little getting use too but now find it very easy and thorough. For me it has been an excellent acquisition and considering the price for a book an excellent value. Heartily recommend.
  • Should be much more comprehensive at this price

    Information provided is minimal & not worth the price...
  • Convenient but needs work

    Easier to use than a book-the search functions are good. But the list function will not display location option long enough to turn it on. Almost impossible to add notes and they don't display. Needs more flight photos. I wish all birding apps worked like Collins Europe.
  • Definitely not worth the $10.00

    Many pictures missing, no support for GPS in settings, the photo page does not support normal photo dimensions when adding your own. Helps with some identification and details but would expect a lot more from an app at this price.
  • Okay but some images missing

    Just downloaded this app. It seems like it should work for my trip, but I was surprised at how many species had no image (I think about 100). Many of these I have in my North America guides, but I don't understand why they are not included here along with the species descriptions.
  • Excellent Value

    We went on a two week birding trip in Costa Rica. I had ordered a plastic bird card in addition to the book. I saw this app and thought it was only a few dollars more than the plastic card so I downloaded it. In the field, I stopped carrying the book and card and only used the app. The rest of the group were constantly asking to see it even though our excellent guide had the book. The only con is that the families are listed under the scientific name rather than common. When you type in hummingbird, not all the listed hummingbirds come up. We have been birding in a number of Central and South American countries where even finding a decent book was difficult. We were delighted to find this great app. The other reviewer stated that the national bird, clay colored thrush, is not listed. I just checked the app and it is there. Suggest he use the search function at the top of the lists. You have to scroll up to get to it.
