Description

iBird Pro Field Guide to Birds of North America is Apple’s best-selling app for identifying any of the 963 species of birds on the North American continent. This newest version 12.0 of iBird™ Pro contains our revolutionary Photo Sleuth feature as a low cost in-app purchase. iBird Photo Sleuth will identify the species of any North American bird from a photo, even if of poor quality. No internet connection is needed to use it. Sleuth is available for a limited time at a 50% introductory price for our iBird Pro customers. A stand-alone version of Photo Sleuth is also available in the app store. You can watch a short slide show of how Sleuth works here: bit.ly/ibirdsleuth. Also new to this iBird Pro version are the 2018 American Ornithological Union updates including new splits, changes to common names, families, orders, etc. We’ve updated 37 high-resolution species illustrations, which, as you know, are one thing that sets iBird apart from all other birding apps, which only offer photographs. The iBird Pro architecture is now “consolidated”, meaning its default North America database is supplemented with databases of other countries, including the United Kingdom and Ireland, Hawaii and Palau. You can purchase databases for these countries at a price that is much lower than the individual apps, and instantly switch between them inside the app. The beauty of this new approach, which Apple asked us to implement, is there is no longer a need for multiple apps; a single version of iBird Pro can now serve as a reference guide to birds around the world. Furthermore, you can install iBird Pro on multiple devices and share it with your family plan so that with one app everyone can enjoy thousands of new species. Of course, we will also continue to update both the features of the app and the content of the databases as we have done for the past 10 years since iBird was first born in the Apple store. iBird continues to offer these other IAP features: Time-of-Day—lets you search for birds by activity levels during day or night (Cathemeral), dawn and dusk (Crepuscular), etc., Birds Around Me (BAM)—shows just those species in your GPS location, Percevia™ smart search—patented feature that helps you identify birds just like the birding experts and Owls of Mexico and Central America—which includes illustrations with field marks, range maps, songs and calls and much more for these remarkable species. iBird developers never sleep: Version 12.0 adds 48 new drawings—to see these go to Search->Illustration Update-11.1. More Details of iBird Pro Version 12: http://ibird.com/whats-new/whats-new.html iBird Pro contains 963 species of North American birds, including both common, uncommon and rare species. The app is designed to help both experienced and novice birders identify and learn about their birds. Unlike other iPhone apps, iBird includes popular birds of the Hawaiian Islands and is completely up-to-date with the 2018 AOU and ABA checklists. Databases are available for the countries of the United Kingdom, Hawaii and the famous nation of Palau. Summary of Top Features ● SHARE the Species page. ● Identify 963 species with in-depth descriptions, including details on appearance, habitat, behavior, conservation, size, weight, color, pattern, shape, sexual differences, etc. ● Share any species page via Mail, Messages, Facebook, etc. ● Birds Around Me and Percevia™ smart search now available as in-app purchases with free 7-day trials. ● The only birding app that includes both Illustrations and Photos. ● Sort birds by first, last and family name and view birds by text, icon, thumbnail or gallery. ● Search by common name, Latin name and even band code. ● Comprehensive range maps that include migratory routes as well as subspecies maps for 40 species. ● Only app with a field mark layer that displays key ID marks for male, female and juvenile birds. ● iBird’s database is completely self-contained; no internet connection is required.

    Love the app but customer support...not so much. I submitted a very detailed request nine days ago, have emailed them twice since then and no reply. Nothing. Very frustrating, especially for such an expensive app.

    This is the most complete bird app available. I have used it for years and it has continually improved over time. It is worth what the price.
  • App great but add-on confusing

    Love the app but I ended up buying two separate add-on before I figured out how to add to the existing app. Complaints to company unanswered. Hate the fact that for example my iBird UK is separate and not integrated because I did a wrong key stroke.

    How dare you! I paid for this app and it froze my phone when I tried to update. I was forced to delete it and it demands $14.99 to reinstall.

    This is the app that I recommend the most. The bird calls on the app are awesome! I have used it to identify different species of owls. Love it!

    This app is great and it keeps getting better. My only suggest would be to be able to share option plates/bio pages of the birds. Everyone know me as the “bird guy” and I get a pretty steady flow of bird ID questions. It would be awesome if I could just hit a share button and send it to the questioner. With a link for them to download the app as well, of course. Thanks for working so hard. I appreciate it.
