"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

    When trying to re-instal the application from my "Playstore" it will only be allowed if I pay again with my credit card. I have contacted both Samsung apps and "My digital Earth" for assistance, but to no avail.

    Bougth this nice app August, 8. But I want the index and the search with English bird names and not the Afrikaans names. I go to SA on August, 20. Please give update or work-around asap. Or I want my money back.

    This does everything it promises and more. After notifying the developer about a small glitch it was fixed within a day or two. Awesome support and an equally great app.

    I am really impressed . Very informative. To have this in my pocket as opposed to a book left on the coffee table is no contest. Well done. Mike Cole

    The 185 MB download is acceptable in principle, but the servers you download from is far too slow. It makes the process unpleasant - and detracts from the application.
