App went from good to bad
I really liked this app when I first got it but after the last update it has been nothing but trouble. At first it refused to let me sign in when I wanted to add more sightings. Got that problem resolved only to find that it's a pain to add new sightings. When I do add additional sightings of the same species instead of putting the added sighting on that particular species thumbnail it adds another thumbnail ending up with a very long list of duplicates.. The original way was way better. Last night I started putting some old sightings in because the originals were gone. After three entries all my old sightings popped up. I thought great, maybe it's working now but no. Today I went to my sightings section and most were gone again. It also decided I live in Vermont on the first few sightings I entered. Some pretty sloppy programming. This app should really be debugged before release rather than using those who buy it having to do the debugging.

The Full Birding Experience
I just upgraded to the 3.0 version and to my great pleasure it made a great app even better. My first reaction was how well NatureShare was integrated into the app. NatureShare has been a wonderful enrichment to my birding experience. As the name suggests I can put photos of my nature sightings and get feedback from fellow nature enthusiasts. Its much more than a social website. Much can be learned there and the fact that you are sharing your sightings with many others makes it more meaningful. When I first opened the upgraded app I was really impressed that all of my 235 sightings were there complete with my pictures, comments, and locations. Also it is very simple for me to add sightings when out in the field. The location information will be recorded as well as any comments that I care to make about the sighting. If you're looking for birds in the area the app will present you with a map showing all of the recent sightings according to eBird. If you get the eBird emails of these sightings you will realize how much easier this feature makes it to find the birds that you want. The real value of this app starts with the tremendous body of information on birds. Pictures, sounds, range maps, and descriptions increase your understanding of birds. When it comes to identifying birds the app will help you make this task easier by filtering birds by family, shape, color, size, habitat, and so on. All serious birders need to have this app.

Can't even install it!
I tried installing the update, but it said I didn't have enough room. I have an iPhone 5, and was looking forward to this update. Uninstalled it and a few other apps, so now I have 1.9Gigs free, and it still won't install.

unable to edit?
1) I have an accidental post/sighting & have not found a way to delete this sighting. The previous version it was plain as day, big old delete button right on the sighting pg. 2) Along the same lines but I have yet to find a way to edit the info on an existing sighting, a way to add more info. The previous version you had the ability to do so. 3) When you want to save your sighting you have no choice but to "post sighting"??? Users should have the choice of saving it for their own info or for the socialized portion of the app. 4) The app is definitely having trouble saving species to the various "lists" when you check them off. I'm sorry but I have to agree with all the other users who rated this 'update' subpar. It's just a shame to see a quality app put out an update that obviously has not been tested nearly enough! FIX IT!!!
