Probably worth paying for by jessicadally
So like all good free versions this app gives you a few birds to check out but not the whole product. Let me say this is enough to tempt me to get the full $20 pro version because this app is pretty amazing. I was originally introduced to this app by my friend Chris Morgan (of BEARTREK, Bears of the Last Frontier and David Letterman fame) as he just got his phone and had been playing with the full version outside his house amazed as birds congregated to this weird, 6+ foot tall British bird with a strange electronic device. And of course the app is amazing. It used to be that we'd need to carry these kinds of field guides around in book form, trying to memorize the call of a bird so we could know what it was. Certainly if you're a serious birder you likely still have these resources. But for me, someone who doesn't know squat about most birds, having this information on my phone and in my pocket means I'm so much more likely to learn more about the birds around me. Not only does the app give you all the typical information you'd find in a field guide but it gives you several bird calls for each bird, the reason Chris was surrounded by birds as he played with the app. Apparently these calls are good enough to attract birds which is pretty fun and amazing. It's apps like this that make the iPhone worth so much more than a phone. By putting these educational resources into our pockets we can explore the world more fully and have the information with us whenever we could possibly want or need it. Way to go iBird Explorer... now to pony up the cash for the more expensive (and much more complete) version!
