iBird Pro 2 Android App Review

Spotted a bird in the wild and cannot tell what it is? You can learn more about this beautiful creature with the iBird Pro 2 by Mitch Waite Group, which is packed with detailed photos, information, and even song clips for over 900 bird species in North America and Hawaii. Search for a particular bird according to a variety of attributes, including location, body shape, size, song, habitat, color, Latin names, flight pattern, and bill shape.

The search function of this app is intuitive; it narrows down your selection as you type. For instance, typing “rob” streamlines the list from 924 total bird species to just four species of robin. And while you can select a state or province as a location parameter, it does not make use of GPS functionality.

The search results come in stunning, detailed illustrations, photographs, text descriptions, range maps, taxonomy and ecology information, and audio clips of bird calls. Wikipedia articles and Flickr photo galleries are attached to each species for further research.

You can make the iBird Pro 2 app as your bird watching tool by adding a species that you like to your Favorites list and even save a time-stamped note when you see a certain type of bird. You can also e-mail your notes to share to friends.

This app also adds new features. For one, it is optimized for tablet usage and devices equipped with Android Ice Cream Sandwich. It also provides additional bird songs from reputable institutions and does not require Internet connection to use, but regular syncing via WiFi is recommended.

iBird Pro 2 is available on Gppgle Play for under $20, but its promo celebrating the app’s third-year anniversary pulls the price down to just 99 cents. Download now before it is too late!
