  1. ICloud

    Susan Yes, keep Apps updated and be sure to enable the backup systems. We try to present the tools but the user must agree and enable the backup systems. BF
  2. Missing birds

    George For Mocking Birds, try looking up Northern Mocking Bird, or just search on Mocking, for the Mockers. For Muscovy Ducks, search for Muscovy. Be sure that you are searching by Common Name, not Latin or Band Code. BF
  3. Simplify Browsing

    Jeff We thought about this, but there is not enough space for this. Thanks for the suggestion. BF
  4. ICloud

    Susan You might try looking in Dropbox for your files. We used Dropbox for a while, maybe the old version used Dropbox as a backup. If you find the data in Dropbox, copy the contents of the folders and paste them to the iCloud folders. BF
  5. ICloud

    Susan You may do a search on your computer for iCloud Drive, open the folder for the files. Bigfoot
  6. Bachman's Warbler

    Missouri Please try to get a photo of this bird. Bigfoot
  7. NatR Thank you for your report, it turns out that you are correct, the sound is for Chipping Sparrow and we have made some corrections in our database. Here is the message from the Group leader. "I checked the sounds and the user is correct, the Chipping Sparrow should show up when a search is done for Song Pattern>Flat. That has now been corrected in the web editor and should appear the next time the app is updated." This change cannot be seen until the App is updated, but the database has been corrected. Thanks again, this reporting helps immensely to make and keep our database as error free and we can. Bigfoot
  8. Database to SD Card?

    Patrick You should only need to have the database downloaded once, the actual App is small so you may stop it where ever you please. There is a new version of the App 7.2.593, please download as the problem of loosing track of a downloaded database is now resolved. You may download the database to either your internal memory or your SD Card. If your App looses the database again, you may go to "More" from the Navigation Menu>Mount Downloaded Database. This will locate your database and point your App to the database, which was there but the App lost track of it. Bigfoot
  9. Natr I'll forward your questions to the person in charge of the Sounds. Bigfoot
  10. Natr Thanks for your comments, they have been forwarded to the proper group for review. Bigfoot
  11. Thanks Rancserty Bigfoot
  12. Hello Susan, It is me Bigfoot, Welcome back to Whatbird


  13. IBird wish list

    The Save Search is available on Apple devices, and will be added to Android Apps in some future release, but again, I am not advised of any planning release date. Thanks for your report/requests, they do get looked at and this will be forwarded to the programmers. Bigfoot
  14. iBird Journal app

    Our intensions are to make Android Apps the same as we have available for Apple Apps, so yes, but I do not have a target date/planning date of the release, so it will probably be quite some time yet. Bigfoot
  15. Version 10 and iCloud

    Oscar iBird Apps now use iCloud as a backup, as Dropbox now does not offer the services needed for iBird, access to more than one user/device. We did not delete any files in Dropbox so if your Favorites and Notes are still in, or if Dropbox was current with your data, you may open Dropbox, copy the files in the Folders and paste them to the corresponding folders in iCloud. This will effectively complete the migration of your data from Dropbox to iCloud. The folder names are not exactly the same but you can figure out the correctly folders to paste your files. Bigfoot
