    Device conflict. Presumably the S8 is too new. No real explanation

    I am most impressed with this app and the service one gets. Subscription is a little over priced for both alerts and news brows but, you do get an excellent service. Unfortunately I cannot afford their prices for alerts and news but I may possibly consider just one service when my trial ends. The app is almost flawless as its easy to set up. The only thing that could be improved on the app is whil

    For someone who cannot and does not twitch at a moment's notice any more, this is probably even more user friendly than the pager for me as each county and level of report is customisable so I'm only hearing about what I want rather than trawling thru Caspian Gull reports from the whole of the UK!

    Reading all the rants and moans on here is laughable. The best rant was the guy un installing because RBA wouldn't post a sighting of his favourite common bird. There's a clue in the name of this app which is great, I use it daily and have never had a single issue with it in 3 years. The news is generally out quicker than anyone else as well.
