I acquired this app several years ago had a list going of species and suddenly after a period non-use my “trial period” has expired is shown apparently 8 years is a “trial”

Fantastic!

Dat Freak's Review of Peterson Bird Field Guide

Edit: I paid full price for this app. Out of nowhere, more money is required for full accessibility. Honestly, it was the weakest of the modern birding apps. Try iBird Ultimate and Sibley, you will be missing nothing by eschewing this app in favor of those. There is no excuse for this deceptive business practice; this has brought shame to the Peterson name.

Great app but location doesn’t always work

This is a great app but recently I’ve noticed than when I record a bird sighting the app doesn’t always fully fill in the location or even at all; oddly, this happens differently for different birds.

Nope

The app keeps wanting me to pay the $14.99 fee even though I already did. I liked the a lot when I had full access but I'm not paying it again.

Purchase again.

I purchased this app years ago and switched to a new Iphone. Now it says I have a certain amount of time to pay for the full version or in assuming the app with not open. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Update : received an email and my account was fixed. Thank you! This is great customer service.

Outdated app

Why do I have to pay again to use an app I paid almost $10 to purchase? Update: heard back from the developer who asked me to contact them via an invalid email address. Figured out the correct address but still waiting on a response many days later. Second update: Contacted customer service via contact form on the website and have now regained access to the app contents. Updated review to three stars instead of one, because the app is many cycles out of date, including outdated keyboard and no iPhone X compatibility but customer service was friendly and helpful and willing to fix the access problem.

Pretty much worthless

I learned my birds using Peterson’s. Why can’t they put the same content in an app? I’d happily pay for it, just like I did my old bird book. In the app, Certain bird groupings require “in app purchases” but then won’t allow you to purchase it. Pointless and worthless.

Can’t restore purchase

Liked this app. Have been using it for several years. Got a new iPad and had to reinstall the app. Unfortunately can not restore my purchase. Very disappointed. This is a update to my original review. The support staff at the company that now owns this app was very helpful with restoring my purchase and I now have full access to all the data in the app. I’m still somewhat concerned with why this happened. In particular, will I have to go through this again if I have to reinstall the app for some reason?

Excellent app and support

Just a short note advising I had a very good customer interaction with their support team. They cared about my issue. They were prompt, friendly, and immediately solved my issue. Great customer service. The app is the field guide in nicely done app form

Thieves!!

I purchased this app in February 2013, and all the sudden it’s telling me that I need to pay ANOTHER $10 to use it. It was a decent guide when it worked. I have emailed the company, and have not heard back now for a month. Bad business!!
