The ROBERTS VII MULTIMEDIA BIRDS OF SOUTHERN AFRICA Android Edition is a comprehensive and interactive application that combines multimedia data on 968 Southern African bird species with seven interactive modules for every aspect of mobile birding.

The app can be used as a FIELD GUIDE (like the book) or as a BIRD LIST, with essential functions such as view bird page, play the sound, add to your list and view similar birds available directly in both.

The FIELD GUIDE displays the full field guide pages of the Roberts Bird Guide book for instant comparison and identification. Use the family list or browse the pages for a bird, play the sound, add to your list, and open the BIRD PAGE for further detail.

The BIRD GUIDE includes a full bird list and individual BIRD PAGES with illustrations, distribution maps, photos, bird sounds, Roberts Field Guide text and the full Roberts VII text.

The BIRD LIST includes includes all the new species and new names, with functions for Bird Page, Play Sound, Add to List, Similar Birds and Field Guide Page. You can also select regional lists, and English, Afrikaans, German, French, Portuguese, Dutch and Scientific names.

IDENTIFICATION uses your location, habitat, bird shapes and plumage to shortlist possible species for identification. You can also identify bird sounds, nests and eggs.

SIMILAR BIRDS loads a list of birds similar to that selected. COMPARE BIRDS displays the bird pages side by side for direct comparison.

MY LOCATION is an interactive map for finding your current location, generating bird lists for your location, and locating birding sites near you. Or tap for a new location, GPS co-ords, pentad and bird list, or open a birding site list and site description.

    I saved up so I can buy this app, we have a game farm and go to places like the kruger often, I thought this app would be great for keeping track of the birds we have seen but after I downloaded aaaaall of it it keeps telling me "data check error, check your Internet connection " and Im have full HSDPA so signal is full, I wanted to buy the app for my ipad as well but now that I can't use it there

    I bought this programme a while ago and recently downloaded it to my current device. Now after downloading it, it says "server is unreachable, please try again after some time" please assist since this has been going on for some time and it has been paid for. Kind regards

    This app is undoubtedly the best birding app for Southern Africa. A real pity that it hasn't been developed properly for tablets.

    Brilliant ap, except for the fact that you need Internet connection in order to use. In some areas there is no Internet coverage and renders the ap useless.

    I am very dissapointed. Its now the second time in 6 months that when I really need the app it doesn't work. "Checking data. App License check failed" And it just does not want to open

    Het aanvanklik gesukkel om dit af te laai, moes slegs die font kleiner maak om te registreer en alles was perfek. Dankie.

    Working for now... After Robert's bird guide stopped working for the second time because of a data licence error. Before: after further troubles with a data licence error the support team got it working. For the first week the Data was not working could not read text or play sound. Unacceptable from a Paid app! Developers and Google should get it sorted out!
