The publisher touts this app as the ideal choice for keeping track of your bird-watching experiences, but its spotty performance tells a different story.
The program's plain interface isn't much to look at, but fortunately, it's easy enough for any level user. From there, you can keep details of your bird watching, including the date and time of sighting, species name, and location. There's an option for inserting pictures of birds you've sighted; however, it's disabled during the trial. We found adding and deleting entries an easy task, but we came across a snag with the search and sort features as both delivered faulty performances. Also, our testers tried to export records into supported formats, but found that records can only be exported in HTM format.
Bird Watcher Professional offers a measly 10-record trial. A stingy demo and the functionality problems we encountered are reason enough to send you looking for another program.
