Pros: tons of useful info, A+ media content. Cons: only syncs with wifi, slow and buggy, no sd option, mediocre ui, frequent fc. Not worth the money.
Great varities of calls. However, is still slow and buggy with FCs daily.

Requires frequent synching but good photos, songs, data. Servicable e-fieldguide. No fc on Fascinate.
People without high end fast processor phones and fast data connections will be dissatisfied.
Painfully slow. Many FCs. Try IBird pro.
MUCH better!!! Thank you for the improvements!
Updating my review to reflect the recent changes- no longer FCs, devs are very helpful & receptive. App is much quicker now as well.
Current version works very well. Previous problems fixed.
This is my favorite app. Bird calls at your fingertips at all times. Works great on droid x
