    I purchased this app years ago and I am unable to open it. I loved it when it was working. I have tried to follow instructions and I still am unable to utilize this app. I am disappointed that this has not been resolved. Marilyn Abend

    I don't carry books in the field anymore - they can't play songs;) Many people complain about permissions but the app needs to access your phone to confirm the purchase. You can manually remove permission later.

    This was a 5 star wonderful app until about 2 months ago. We have had it 3 or 4 years. Great to help identify. I started using it as my only list for birding. I logged when our first Osprey of the year came, when they first had eggs, when they hatched, etc. About all birds observed. Then about 2 months ago, I added something to my list noting the status and went back to look up something from an earlier date and every entry inside was identical to the first entry on the inside of it. ALL my notations were gone. I went out to the help section and sent an email asking what happened and if it was recoup able. I never even got an answer! I am so disappointed!

    After years of issues on a Windows phone, I made the switch to Android and now this app is working great! Thanks to Cool Idea Solutions for supporting my platform change. Well worth the investment.

    As always, great Sibley illustrations and descriptions. This app, however, is missing out on some key mobile platform functionality. For example, there is no feature to show similar species by sight or sound (Audubon shows similar species by sight and iBird shows similar sounding species as well). This app also lacks actual images of the birds which can be useful as well as not supporting searches using AOU four letter alpha codes.
