iBird Explorer Plus
If you have watched the latest Apple iPhone commercials, you have probably heard the saying about how there is an app for everything on the iPhone. Well, iBird Explorer Plus is one of those cool iPhone apps that you don’t see everyday. It’s a comprehensive, interactive field guide to all birds in the North America (and Canada) region. So if you are a bird lover or an explorer, you are going to love iBird Explorer.
I got to admit. I am no expert when it comes to birds. In fact, I can barely tell the difference between an eagle and a crow, but I found all the specifies demonstrated on this app very amusing. iBird Explorer covers every species of bird found in the U.S. and Canada. And it does show you the extinct ones too. You don’t just get pictures with this app. You get their songs and calls too. How cool is that?
You also get a cool search engine that helps you find the bird you are looking for based on color, shape, habitat, location, and so on. You get 1700+ professional photos of the birds (male and female), and it tells you what the birds eat as well. And who could miss the wiki pages for each bird that provides you with all kinds of information about that specific bird.
If you are paying $20 for an app, it’s always better to get lifetime updates with it. The upcoming updates for this app are very promising. Not only you are going to get more photographs, eBird.org integration, and synchronization with Whatbird.com, you are going to get tests, puzzles, and word games based on these birds.
Overall, if you are into the business of birds or you are just an animal lover, you are going to love iBird Explorer Plus. It’s unlike anything you have seen on the iPhone and well worth the investment.
