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.

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.

let the app tell you what species you're hearing!" ***

Developed by automatic recognition experts in collaboration with published biologists.

*** 'The Times Newspaper' said the app "Does what it says on the tin" and were amazed that "this astonishing piece of software costs about the same as a cup of coffee". ***

The most functional Bird Song app on the market by far. Make your own bird song recordings and keep a bird song diary.

Have you ever heard a bird singing and wondered "What kind of bird is that?". Bird Song Id is a great tool to help you learn to quickly and easily identify birds by their songs and calls. It's great fun to use too. With Bird Song Id, identification can be enjoyed by the whole family.

Bird Song Id has been created by professional published ecologists. The app does not need an internet connection, all songs and calls are downloaded when the app is purchased, one hundred and eighteen species are included.

We have included an early version of Automatic Recognition in the app for you to try. We hope this feature will help you identify common bird species. However, it needs a good quality recording to work, and takes a bit of time and patience to get used to. Automatic Recognition takes place on the device, no connection to the internet or mobile network is needed.

How successful is it? Our aim is to get the correct bird in the top three of those listed. In our testing of over 1,000 samples we found the success rate to be 85%.

Remember this is an early release of this innovative feature, so please be gentle. A demo is available on YouTube.

--------------- HELP ----------------
Automatic Recognition needs a good quality recording of the bird
-------------
Remove the case from your iPhone if you use one as this will significantly dampen the microphone
-------------
Only record when it is very quiet, apart from the bird singing of course
-------------
Be close to the bird singing, as close as you can be without disturbing it
-------------
Only record when a single bird is singing, or when a single bird is dominant
-------------
The analysis graph should have plenty of blue and green colors with few or no black peaks
-------------
Be patient, dont expect miracles, the system works but needs good clear recordings
-------------
The peaks on the graph should reach all the way to the top. Low peaks indicate poor quality and recognition is unlikely
-------------
A difference between two birds of less than 10% is not that significant, so listen to the samples from both to help you further
-------------
The microphone is at the bottom of an iPhone, point the bottom of the phone towards the bird
-------------
Record a single bird at a time
-------------
Record for the full 30 seconds
-------------
Avoid windy conditions. Air moving over the microphone will mask the bird sounds
-------------
Playing songs to the app from recorded material on the internet, other apps or CDs is unlikely to work as this material is digitally processed and edited (inter phase gaps are often shortened). They sound very different to recording birds for real on an iPhone or iPad in the natural environment.

ChirpOMatic UK, Automatic Bird Song Recognition v2

ChirpOMatic UK, Automatic Bird Song Recognition v2

Spiny Software Ltd

“Top of the pile of bird song recognition apps” - Bird Watching magazine
The only birdsong app that can safely be used on nature reserves!
Featured by Apple in 'Celebrate Springtime’ for spring 2017

ChirpOMatic is an excellent way to identify bird sounds around you. Simply record a bird singing and use Automatic Recognition to identify it. The app can work wherever you are - if you don’t have internet or a mobile connection then the app analyses the sound on the device. And unlike other bird apps, our special Bird-Safe mode means that the app can even be used in nature reserves without the risk of disturbing birds.

The app works rather like Shazam® does for music. When you hear a bird, quickly hold up your phone and start recording. The app analyses the sound, and shows you the top matches. You can compare your recording with the reference samples to check the identification. And if you don't have your phone with you, you can use your Apple Watch to record sounds for identification later.

All your recordings are stored on your phone so you can listen to them again or share them with friends. You can help us improve the app by sending us the sound to use in training our system. The best recordings are posted (with your permission) on the Xeno-canto website, the world-wide resource for bird and bird sound research.

"Excitedly playing with it in my garden - robins, blue & great tit so far :):)"
"My new absolute favourite app - #Chirpomatic (It's basically Shazam for birds!!)"
"It is really easy to use and intuitive, which is essential!"
"I've already learnt the calls of 5 garden birds....such a great app."

PLEASE NOTE! The app is designed to identify real live birds under natural conditions. If you test on recorded sounds, you need to play the sounds at a realistic volume and only test on birds that might be found at your location at this time of year.


========= Our bird song apps =========

We have been making bird song apps since the App Store started in 2008, and now have a range of bird and bird song apps for iOS devices - iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad & Apple Watch.


--------------- Chirp! ---------------
Chirp! is our original and most popular bird song app. It has been in the top selling charts every day since it was launched over seven years ago. It has changed considerably in that time as it has grown in size and features.

Chirp! is specifically designed for the identification and learning of birdsongs. However, it is also great if you just want to relax to the sounds of nature.


----------- ChirpOMatic -----------
ChirpOMatic, described above, is our automatic (‘shazam-style’) bird song recognition app.

Because we specialise in bird apps, we know the problems that can arise. Many nature reserves discourage the use of mobile devices as the playing of bird sounds disturbs the birds. But with ChirpOMatic you can switch bird-safe mode on, and use the app safely anywhere. In bird-safe mode you need to hold the device to your ear as though on the phone, in order to hear the sounds.

More here: www.chirpomatic.com


---- ChirpOMatic & Chirp! bundle ----
The 2 bird song ID apps are available as a bargain bundle. They work together - once you have the ID of a bird in ChirpOMatic, you can tap straight through to the same bird in Chirp!


---- Bird Guide Pro & Pocket Birds ----
These are our reference bird guides, with photos, sounds, notes etc, plus features for recording sightings. Bird Guide Pro is our top-of-the-range app, while Pocket Birds is the budget version.

● A “Smart Search” that gives the ability to search by distinguishing features such as size, colour, physical features, habitat and exclude certain types of birds (eg. Passerines).
● A basic personal species list that stores your sightings saved to the device* (ability to upload list coming soon)
● A comprehensive help and introduction section to help you if you get stuck or don’t understand how a certain feature works.

*Uninstalling/reinstalling the program will result in the loss of your list, it is recommended that you keep your own backup (master list) separate from the application.

We invite all users to share their comments and ideas on our forum at www.mydigitalearth.com

NB. This Application WILL ONLY work on an iPhone or iPod Touch running iOS V7.1 or higher NOT A NORMAL IPOD CLASSIC/NANO and the download is about 320MB.
