  1. James, thank you, thank you thank you! I had nearly gotten there but not quite and your explanation so clear and well laid out that I had no problem following it. Hopefully the folks at Ibird will get it together to give us a fully functioning app at some point but this seems to be 90% there now.
  2. That's the same version I have and I updated it whenever I reviewed my updates. (I always update apps manually) So you have the latest I'm pretty sure. I'm always hoping they'll improve on a few things. Most notably I think "Birds Around Me" should be set by default instead of wasting often precious moments fumbling with the app hoping a bird stays in place. I also note that the "Birds Around Me" function disappears when I look at a "Similar" species. I find that very frustrating. Right now, some of the app functions work but when I try to use the range maps, sounds, pictures, etc it comes up with a "no internet" message. I've given it all the permissions I can find and I would have thought all of that info was already downloaded... I'll continue to mess with it. Thanks again.
  3. Thanks Lonestranger, At first I thought that wasn't working until I figured out that the "My Files" app that I had was different from the one in the video. (they look almost exactly the same) Once I figured that out and installed the correct file manager it worked so I now have Ibird Pro on my new phone. The only issue now is that I don't have access to sync my notes or favorites. Ibird on my new phone suggests I "Sign in with Google" but when I try, it just says "Google login failed" with no explanation as to why or any other suggestion. Is there some other way to login? Maybe by just filling out a username/email and password? I don't see that option anywhere. I tried re-registering with the same email and that went through fine but still doesn't allow sync. Thanks so much for your help!
  4. I was having problems with my old phone and replaced it recently. I believe the problems were software related so I don't want to simply transfer information en masse (my phone was randomly rebooting). I figured I'd just reinstall Ibird Pro but it doesn't seem to be available anymore. Tech help says, "The iBird apps were removed from the Google Play Store because they were not compliant with Google's new privacy policies. We need to update them to meet the requirements, then they will be back in the store and you can redownload your app. Unfortunately I do not have a release date for that update, but we appreciate your continued patience in this matter." I think I'm a bit less patient than tech help thinks I am, especially since prime birding season has started here (Charleston SC). Does anyone know where to download the pro version for Android other than Google Play? Or does anyone know how to transfer only the Ibird Pro files from one phone to another? Thanks!
  5. Thanks Lonestranger, I emailed support.
  6. New to this forum and I have questions about IBird Pro for Android. I've been a Pro user for some years and it's my most used birding app. I come here and read about "subscriptions" but I've heard nothing about that elsewhere. Is that for the Iphone version only? I also see reference to Ibird "ultimate"... again, is that Iphone only? The original question that led me to this forum is about the search function. I use the "birds around me" option to narrow down the list but when I narrow down to a single bird and then look up "similar" birds, it no longer limits the list to my local birds. This means looking at the range map for each bird to find out if it's even a possibility. I'm not a programmer or app developer, but it seems like this would be an easy filter to apply to the results. Not so, or is the app not being maintained? For a very amateur birder (like me) this is a critical feature. When there's often so little time to match up field marks, it's very frustrating to need to scroll through range maps. I'd love to know if there's a fix for this issue. Thanks!
