I cannot login to the app. It has been unable to determine my location and give accurate sound IDs. The standard bird ID doesn’t return anything at all. Even the help and about merlin pages don’t load. This app was great before today but now it simply doesn’t function. Edit: They released an update the next day, but none of these bugs were fixed.
Last Update Killed My Sound Identification. Friday morning I was able to identify birds by sound. Update saying sound was improved flashed on screen so I updated. Big mistake as when I tried sound identification, in the same place it just worked, it couldn’t identify one bird. I’ve uninstalled 3 times and still won’t work. All app permissions set. Feederwatch won’t open on my phone after last update. Frustrating.
Unfortunately I’m not in the position to buy the premium version due to a sickness in the family and I have a lot of free time BUT with the free version, this app feeds my thirst for knowledge by giving all kinds of info and sound bytes for every single birds calls, songs, flight calls and even different dialect and variations of those as well. Very well put together and helps even the novice bird watcher/listener like myself. If I could afford it, I’d buy the premium version just because!
Seems like the app works really good so far identifying birds by calls and songs. The registering process was slightly cumbersome and seemingly repetitive, maybe my connection was slow… also, I was directed to the Cornell Lab to start a co-account(?) to document birds on their system, but it didn’t seem to sync and I couldn’t do anything with it. Again, maybe a poor connection. Otherwise, I’m very happy to have this app, it’s been fun!
