What's new in version 2.1
  • We are aware that some users have had issues when opening the app for the first time, the sound and image files that are needed for the app would not download and this was causing the app to close. We have now updated the app, so that all sound and image files that are needed are downloaded when the app is purchase, therefore there is no longer a need to have an internet connection when the app is first opened and no additional download will occur. If you have any problems at all, can you please email us at support@clevermatrix.co.uk and if you like that app, can you please leave a review or update your existing review. Thanks.

Product Description

Reduced for limited time to ONLY 69p
******

The Birds of Britain app contains 268 identification guides of birds found in the UK. It will help all nature lovers identify birds whilst out and about.

The app contains detailed information on each bird and a gallery of high quality photos.

We are aware that some users had issues downloading the image and sound files needed for the app, so we have now changed the way the app works and all images and sounds are downloaded at time of purchase, so there is no need for an internet connection when using the app, everything now works completely offline.

The app has the following features:
- 223 bird guides
- Ability to Tweet from the app
- A to Z list of birds
- Family screen where by the birds are split down into families
- Favourites screen where you can store your favourite birds
- Search screen where you can search by either common or latin name
- Detailed information on each bird listed
- Many pictures for each bird listed, helping with the identification process
- Scroll through pictures with a simple swipe of the finger
- Recordings of calls and songs of birds
- Fast and simple to use

Currently the app contains 223 of the most common UK birds but we will be updating it in the coming weeks to have more.

If there is a bird that you think we have missed and you would like to see it listed, then please drop us an email at support@clevermatrix.co.uk and we'll see what we can do.

5.0 out of 5 stars works on Kindle Fire 17 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase
I had downloaded this before I read the negative reviews stating that it won't work on a Kindle Fire. Although it was slow to download, it is now up and running on my Kindle Fire. Try again if you weren't successful, it's a lovely app!

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding ! 22 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase
The many photographs are really good. I havelots of birdbooks with photographs of the birds of course, but these are outstanding. The calls also are so realistic that i am almost looking round for the bird! I saw a waxwing a few days ago, but it was silent. Now I know what it would have sounded like if it had been calling or singing!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great app. for the price 24 Nov. 2012
By Stephen Griffiths TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
I downloaded this really superb app onto my Kindle Fire. You need to be prepared for a long download time of about 30 minutes, but it is worth the wait. It would be worth temporarily changing your auto switch off time before downloading. Mine is set for 5 minutes and I needed to poke the screen every few minutes to stop it switching off. That aside, no problem.
Each species has useful, often quite detailed field notes, images and most have song examples, which you certainly don't get in book. The images are a bit small and cannot be expanded but that is a very minor quibble. This is a great value app. I'm so glad I found it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great to take birdwatching 3 Dec. 2012

Very pleased with this app. It gives several images for each bird and their song. I was worried when I first opened it up as it took ages but that was only for the first time of use.

By Radiojock TOP 1000 REVIEWER

For each bird listed, and there are loads, you get a photograph, a write-up and a short .mp3 sound file. This is absolutely fascinating. My Mum often asks me about birds. I might just be able to answer a few questions for her now. I might still get the book of British birds as well, but this is so much more interactive, especially with the bird songs included. A lovely app. Chuffed to bits with it.

Very useful for instant identification, especially the range of images. Unfortunately the sound files populate the music section of the tablet' s system.
