User Reviews for Roberts Bird Guide 2

Fantastic app

Really like the app, have it on my phones and ipad. Only enhancement I would request would be for the ‘Learn Sounds’ mode. It would be great if there was a random order for the calls. furthermore when the phone or ipad screen turns off, it stop playing the sounds. would be fab if it could keep playing so i could listen/learn the calls when the phone is not attended.

This is a fantastic app. As an independent birder it was invaluable in learning the avifauna and planning my trips there. It includes Roberts VII comprehensive text which includes distribution maps, similar species, habits, breeding info and more; Guy Gibbons’ excellent recordings; beautiful drawings; comparisons of similar species; photos depicting both sexes, age differences, nests, eggs and much more. My preference using any bird app is a Field Guide format versus individual birds. Both of these options are present. Although the Field Guide format is tiny if using a small phone you can zoom it out. The UI is excellent and the app worked well on my iPhone and iPad. Bird lists can be filtered by country all the way down to a specific site. However, I found creating lists and back ups tricky and I had to do many test runs to use it confidently.There is a feature seldom found in birding apps: a description of birding sites, hundreds of them covering 7 countries, written by local experts, describing expected birds and practical advice. This app, together with Cohen et al. The Southern African Birdfinder, is all you’ll need to bird there.

Could finally identify the bird call

Very impressed with the app. I was finally able to identify the bird by finding the birds in an area and listening to the sounds.
