    Please,
    I am an avid bird watcher, and the iphone has a great birding application. It is like an actual bird watcher book.
    Can or will anyone be able to make a similar application for the Droid? I am sure people would pay for it, I would.
    Thank you,
    Scott

    Got something against birds? I hope they do get an app. And the trees hugger comment. Was that really necessary?

    There are a few iPhone apps. The best one, iBird, is coming to Android soon. Currently in Beta, and the last I heard was that it would be released in April. I am holding my breath. I helped Beta test the Windows Mobile version that was discontinued due to the inconsistencies in the various hardware platforms and I still keep an old HTC Touch just for that program. Can't wait for the Android release.

    says the guy with a parrot as his profile picture, and i dont have anything against birds i just don't see the reason why you have to waste your time staring at them, and why birds? Why not like, bug watching or something, their easier to find.

    Oh dear, perhaps I was being charitable, but I was willing to say the tree hugger comment was just a little sarcasm. Guess not. Too bad. Bugs are kind of interesting too.

    sorry guess it the tree hugger thing was a little on the offensive side, just tired of everyone trying to get people to go green, don't get me wrong im all for saving money and conserving resources, but i don't think that we we are killing polar bears because from down here.

    Hey. They are talking about watching birds. That's a far cry from global warning which we are not going to discuss. So says the moderator with the bird avatar. ;)

    as of today, no bird aps worth while.
    Hey bird watching is better than slamming heroin.
    As for tree hugging, maybe you should try it. By the tone of your post, it sounds like you dont get many hugs anyway.
    No,
    I am not a tree hugger, or heroin addict. My wife got me into checking out birds while hiking. That has nothing to do with saving the world, or green peace or any other BS that you can come up with, not that there is anything wrong with any of that either.
    If you gave it a bit of a chance, it is interesting.

    Actually used my daughter-in-laws app on the iPhone this weekend. Pretty amazing. Went to the iBird page hoping for an update, but couldn't seem to find anything. Since we are now into May, does anyone here have an update?

    What you say about brid watching is a matter of opinion, seeing as you are going to get offended and start talking about heroin, ill just ignore this comepletely and stick with football.

    I was up at Magee Marsh this past week photographing many warblers migrating through. I met a couple people using the iBird app and it made me want to throw their iPhone in the marsh. I hope it gets ported to Android soon.

    So a forum troll doesn't like to go outside and enjoy nature... shocking.
