Those with an iPhone won’t be too excited….(they already have this app and its old hat by now) but for those of us birders who use Android….mark your calendar for Nov 18th to download :)!
Here’s the news release:
BirdsEye for Android
Launching on Tuesday, November 18
It’s been in the works for years, and now the best bird finding app is coming to Android! BirdsEye uses your Android devices GPS and eBird data to show you the what birds you might find nearby, or at any place in the world. Even more exciting is that BirdsEye for Android is launching as a free app.
The free version of BirdsEye is limited to the 50 most common birds in your area. This is true for any location you are in the entire world – you’ll see sighting maps, photos, bird finding and identification text, and sounds where available. Additional regional memberships are available to unlock ALL species being reported throughout a continent, or across the world.
Android users have been asking for BirdsEye for years, and we are excited to finally make it available. This milestone was made possible through the generous donations of time and funds by many people, and we are counting on you, our most avid users, to spread the word of the Android launch and make it a success.
