1.0 out of 5 stars Nondownloadable 26 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase
I know that's not a word; unfortunately, it describes the application to a 'T'. After purchasing the app I proceeded to download it, and it simply cycled round...after waiting five minutes I stopped. I tried again, with the same result.
So, I'd like to review 'Birdwatching' but can't because although I paid for it, I don't have it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing app for a good magazine 23 Mar. 2014

Disappointed with the app as it is very temperamental and not at all stable. Not sure if I will buy any more editions using this unless it is improved -will probably stick to the printed version. Shame really.
