"Opening the Newman’s app was like meeting Ken again – elegant, simple and shining with his wonderful art. The groupings make perfect and immediate sense, the page layout is instantly assimilated in a glance – this app now sets the ornithological standard and deserves a full 5-star rating."

– Dave Pepler, Presenter of Groen on DSTV

---------------------------------------------------------------------

In a world characterised by speed and urgency, birding offers the antithesis – a chance to sit still, unwind and simply observe – whether in one’s own garden or in a remote area of the bush.

This Newman’s Birds app is the perfect companion for all birders, from the beginner to the keenest twitcher. It is based on the 2010 commemorative edition of Newman’s Birds of Southern Africa, one of the most popular birding guides in the region since its initial publication in 1983.

IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING THE LIFE LIST:
This app includes a cloud-based life list that stores your sightings online. You need to log in to the life list while you have internet connectivity, but once logged in, you can add sightings when you don’t have an internet connection. When you next connect to the internet, the life list will sync, and your new entries should be added to your list. The life list will sync to all your devices that have the app installed and where you are logged in with the same details.
