  • Thieves!!

    By Jpinhomewood
    I purchased this app in February 2013, and all the sudden it’s telling me that I need to pay ANOTHER $10 to use it. It was a decent guide when it worked. I have emailed the company, and have not heard back now for a month. Bad business!!
  • Paid once now asking me to pay again

    By Shell-lee
    I installed this app a few years ago on a different phone and paid the “one time” fee of $6.99. After reinstalling I now only get the limited free version and in order to access the full app I would have to pay for it again, now $9.99. Don’t waste your money on this one.
  • Used to be good but now it wants my money again.

    By airycap
    I purchased this app years ago. Used it Friday and it was fine. Tried to use it Saturday and now it says my trial version expired and that I have to purchase again. I’m clearly not the only one who has had this issue. Very frustrating that it is a long standing issue and still not resolved. It would have a higher rating if I could use it as I expect. 🙄
  • Frozen

    By Mtnyaya
    This used to be my go to birding app but it has been frozen for a few weeks. Won’t do anything. All my other apps including my other bird app are working fine. I was hoping I’d get an update fix soon but so far nothing.
  • No longer works

    By Rango007
    I no longer can use the app I purchased already once. I can see the pain of other users.
  • Fantastic!

    By Dat Freak
    Edit: I paid full price for this app. Out of nowhere, more money is required for full accessibility. Honestly, it was the weakest of the modern birding apps. Try iBird Ultimate and Sibley, you will be missing nothing by eschewing this app in favor of those. There is no excuse for this deceptive business practice; this has brought shame to the Peterson name.
  • Deceitful

    By Michigan Bob
    Doesn’t work without additional purchase! It is a scam.
  • Great app but location doesn’t always work

    By NickName86
    This is a great app but recently I’ve noticed than when I record a bird sighting the app doesn’t always fully fill in the location or even at all; oddly, this happens differently for different birds.
  • I have to pay again???

    By AB Nutso
    I was very happy with this app until today, when I tried to use it on my new iPhone. Despite the fact that I already bought the app, it is trying to make me pay again. I spent more than an hour on the phone with Apple support, who verify that the app shows up in my purchases and that I have the right to add it to my iPhone. But something on the app developer's end is screwed up and they do not recognize me as an existing owner of the app. I don't see why I should have to pay a second time to use an app I already bought!
  • Used to be pretty good

    By Marvin Mason
    Had paid for this app before but now I had to buy again—they cleverly made the old app obsolete and required me to delete to start over with a new app. Now the new app doesn’t display properly on iPhone X. Doesn’t use the full screen.
