My husband gave me a IPOD Touch last night and I downloaded IBird Explorer Plus. It looks like it will be what I need when out birdwatching. I tried using it earlier today but when I went to use the Help I found I had to have an Internet connection. I was dissappointed that the Help did not work without being connected to the Internet. I have wireless at home but not one my cell phone and do not plan on paying for it anytime soon.
Now that I am home I found that the Help really is not a big Help anyway. My problem/question is how to you get to the next picture when there are more than one picture of a bird. I pressed the Photo button several times but nothing happens. I tried on those birds with 2 photos and others with 4 photos and all I can see is the first photo that comes up.
Is there a Help that I can go to that will give me instructions for moving around without having to get online on a forum to find the answer to my question?
Next, I have downloaded WhatBird to my laptop, but don't seem to be able to download to my IPOD Touch? Any idea what the problem could be?
Thanks in advance for your help.
