We are blown away!
Having my degree in Ecology, I'm a nature enthusiast and have passed that love on to my kids. We have a collection of field guides around the house and this field guide is our favorite ever. I love that we can sign in and log which birds we've seen and also see what birds others have seen in the area. This is especially useful when traveling and has taught us about the migration habits of different birds. There are great photos of juveniles, males and females in different seasons (sometimes) and many different calls of each bird. My 7-year-old went all birdy this year and couldn't get enough of this app! He can identify so many birds and knows their diets...I'm blown away. When he hears or sees a new bird outside, he runs in searching for the iPod. Here is his review: "I like how much info it has, how it works and how much birds it has." Great for home school and as a jumping place to dig further into the study of birds. This app led us to setting up a mini bird sanctuary outside of our dining room window, reading books about J.J. Audubon and checking out many more books from the library on birds. High quality! Great!!!

Crashes every time I try and open it!
I have this app for my iPhone 4S and my iPad 2. I bought it when it was still $20 and used it all the time without problems. For the last few weeks however, it crashes every time I try to launch the all. It doesn't work at all, please fix !!!

Beautiful App!
I'm a casual backyard bird watcher but this app has really helped me learn a lot.

Really getting better!
This is a beautiful app. However, it would make more sense to have the map pop up after the description. It would also be great if we could actually post our sightings on that map. Small complaints for an otherwise good and getting better app.

Two big flaws
Info is good, as are all the photos once you select the thumbnail. This is my major complaint, the thumbnails are virtually useless for identifying what you are seeing ( this is true for all these Audubon apps). The second flaw is that there are no good keys for winnowing down what you are seeing. So, you wind up spending a lot of time hunting one by one for the species you're looking at. For example, I saw a blue dragonfly. After putting in the location and general color, there were still dozens of choices and no way to pick the right one without opening all the thumbnails one at a time. If I had a key (eg: wings with no spots, two spots, more spots, etc) this would not be such a problem. App would be 4 stars with sharper thumbnails, 5 stars with a few keys to narrow down the search. Overall I would not buy the Audubon apps again without these fixes unless you already know most species you're interested in and just want some basic info about them.
