Peterson Bird Field Guide App Reviews

  • Purchase again.

    By Phototurtle
    I purchased this app years ago and switched to a new Iphone. Now it says I have a certain amount of time to pay for the full version or in assuming the app with not open. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  • Can’t restore purchase

    By Mr Gweb
    Liked this app. Have been using it for several years. Got a new iPad and had to reinstall the app. Unfortunately can not restore my purchase. Very disappointed. This is a update to my original review. The support staff at the company that now owns this app was very helpful with restoring my purchase and I now have full access to all the data in the app. I’m still somewhat concerned with why this happened. In particular, will I have to go through this again if I have to reinstall the app for some reason?
  • Great customer service

    By Renee N.
    I bought this app on my I-phone and received a notice the trial period is over and I, if I wanted to still have it, had to pay again. Update: I e-mailed customer service and they honored my membership. They opened the account access so that I can use it again. THANK YOU.
  • Five star review

    By Wilmuth cook
    I deleted my original great review and am only giving it one star. I paid for the original and don’t want to pay again. I’ll just go back to a book.
  • Rip-off!!! Not worth additional money!!!

    By Jana 46
    I purchased this app several years ago, and I've always had full access to all the species. Recently when I brought it back down from the cloud, I found that I had very limited access to the content, and it prompted me to purchase the app for full access. I think that having to purchase app upgrades is a customer rip-off and definitely not worth it. I will use my other birding apps instead.
  • Nice app. Well done for such a complex app.

    By Cbraudy
    I find the app really useful as a pocket guide. IPhone (and iPad at home). It’s quite well thought out — and presents a the North American field guide quite well. I do have one recurring problem: the Bird Search features uses GPS. If I’m in a poor reception area or out the country (Mexico), the app freezes. I must close it (iPhone 6s) and reopen and only use Browse Birds. I hope the developers keep enhancing the app!
  • Pay again?

    By Birding Brooklyn
    I originally paid for this app in 2012 and loved it! But not so much anymore. Why do I need to pay for this again?!?? Please explain this to me.
  • That is customer service!

    By Lego-Coach
    I, too, had the issue of no longer having access to my Bird Guides after a change to an iPhone 8, but Sarah at Higher Learning Technologies (gWhiz parent company?) set up an account for me right away and presto! I had my access. App is still really good
  • Didn't rebut

    By VMarg1
    So appreciative of customer service! I got the "Upgrade!" notice too, but I contacted CS and they restored functionality on my previously paid app, which I use often to identify those little feathered visitors and neighbors. The info is clear and precise. I would have hated to lose all that.
  • RIP-OFF! Do NOT buy! They STEAL your money!

    By Printsubscriber4
    I already paid $15 for the app and then I went to update it and now it claims I never bought it and it demands $15 more dollars! If you buy a book it doesn’t just one day disappear on you! This is why digital anything stinks! They can steal your purchase at any time! Despicable! Peterson company should be utterly ashamed!
