"In southern Africa the Sasol eBirds would undoubtedly be my first choice. The text is detailed, the navigation system is user friendly and the opportunity to listen to recordings of calls and songs is a huge asset. Above all, the superb paintings by Norman Arlott and Peter Hayman have stood the test of time and are more detailed, more accurate and more life-like than anything on offer in other birding apps for the region." — Mark Cocker, author of Birds and People

    No hints on start page as how to open app; lists are a real pain in the bum with many bugs; Fiscal Shrike: "Also resembles Fiscal Flycatcher (p368)" p368? no links?; why should this app need phone details?

    Ignore everyone complaining, they either need a better phone, or are moronic. Download and try the free one. Judge it for yourself. I will be buying the full version!
