"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

    Well worth the money. Back up your list regularly if it important to you. The playable calls are great for flushing birds. Something a book could never do.

    The Sasol bird app is fairly user friendly and I enjoy the bird call feature. However, the Smart Search does not function well and this is the main reason I bought it.This needs to be improved with an update before I would recommend this app to anyone.

    Useful for basic birding but coverage of SA birds incomplete. Sketches instead of photo's makes it hit and miss afair to identify birds.

    Would be nice to be able to sort birds that I mught see in the area I live. Otherwise a handy app to have & to keep record of birds I've sited & heard.

    Brilliant app with a major flaw: the bird log does not sync across multiple devices. What were you thinking guys?

    Especially the bird call feature. Having birds reply on the calls making it easier to identify them
