What's New

▶ New in Version 1.1 - Birds Around Me. This first update has one of the coolest features we've ever created called "Birds Around Me" or BAM for short. BAM displays a match list of the species most likely to be found within a radius centered at your GPS location. You can control the size of the radius in miles as well as the season of the year.

▶ We've also added 18 endemic species only found in Hawaii. Locate them by selecting the "Location Common" attribute and select the value "Hawaii Endemic".

▶ We've updated the illustrations for 29 species! You can quickly find these illustrations using the "Illustration Update" attribute which is found at the bottom of the Search engine attribute list. Select 6.3 to see these 29 new illustrations

▶ FROM THE CREATORS OF IBIRD – THE WORLD’S MOST POPULAR FIELD GUIDE APP FOR THE IPHONE.

LET’S FACE IT, IF YOU ARE A BIRDER AND LOVE YOUR IPAD THERE IS NO PERFECT APP FOR YOU. UNTIL NOW.

Every birding app on the market is designed for iPhone; the iPad is just an afterthought. This giant sinkhole has finally been filled with WAITE’S GUIDE TO BIRDS OF AMERICA FOR THE IPAD. This app was designed from the very start to take full advantage of the iPad’s beautiful Retina display; its magnificent 10-inch screen and its remarkable 4th generation processing power. Here are just a few of the features of this incredible new app:

▶ Smart Search Engine. Uses our patented Smart Attribute and Value Elimination (SAVE) algorithm, which results in lightning fast and foolproof bird identification.
▶ Portrait and Landscape Modes. Works equally well in portrait or landscape mode.
▶ HD Illustrations. All illustrations are in high resolution: 1200 x 1500 portrait and 1500 x 1000 landscape.
▶ HD Photos. An increasing number of photographs are in high resolution. These have a special graphic icon identifying them so you can zoom in and see the amazing details.
▶ Field Marks! Now all illustrations have a Field Mark layer that can be turned on and off. This is a great way to learn the important identifying marks for specific species. We even tell you what similar bird you might get it confused with.
▶ Topographic maps. All species have topographic maps, which show and describe specific feather groups for the head, body and flight.
▶ Zoomable Images. All photos and illustrations are fully zoomable inside their frame and can be made full screen.
▶ Advanced Slideshow. Lets you select photos or illustrations, see photos from specific photographers, and control exactly which species you wish to study. Makes a great presentation of your photography portfolio.
▶ My Photos allows you to import your photos and assign them to any species account. Can be used by the slideshow.
▶ Dropbox backup for Notes, Favorites Lists and Photos.
▶ Six view modes: standard Compact, Icon, Thumbnail and Gallery and two new modes Large Thumbnail and Large Gallery.
▶ Help Me Identify a Bird Forum. App connects directly to our whatbird.com forum where experts are standing by to help you ID a bird you can't find with the search engine.
▶ You can leave Comments on the species pages to share with other birders.
▶ Compatible with iBird Journal. Directly links to iBird Journal app from any species page. Journal will open with the sighting form already filled out. You can embellish the form and return to the exact same species page you started in WGBA.

SINCE WAITE'S GUIDE IS FREE THERE IS JUST NO REASON NOT TO TRY IT OUT AND SEE THAT IT'S THE BIGGEST CHANGE IN BIRD APPS SINCE WE CREATED THE CATEGORY IN 2008 WITH THE APPLE COMMERCIAL WE HAVE AN APP FOR THAT.
