    My only suggestion would be to update the user interface; the design feels like something out of the early 2000s.
  • Exactly what I was looking for!

    I wanted to find a way to learn bird calls and songs that would work similarly to Dulingo. This app is exactly that, and will feel very familiar to anybody who has used Dulingo before. Learning bird songs is similar to learning a foreign language, and takes about the same amount of effort. This app lets me put in 10 minutes here, 20 minutes there, day after day, while saving my progress. After just a couple of weeks using this program, my birding has improved markedly, and walking in the woods is a whole different experience from before. The change is like the difference between traveling in a foreign city where you don’t speak any of the language, and being in one with a language you understand. I never knew how much I was missing out on by not knowing my bird calls until I started using this app. I cannot recommend Larkwire highly enough.
  • Sweet!

    In the words of the Yellow Warbler, this app is sweet sweet sweet sweet so-so-so sweet!!! I don’t usually pay more than .99 cents for an app, but I took a chance on this one: and it turned out to be probably the best app purchase I’ve ever made! With the help of this app, I have made the plunge into birding by ear, and it has truly changed me from a casual birder to a serious one. I love that each bird has multiple recordings, which prevents me from memorizing a specific recording rather than the pattern of the song. I love that it is not intimidating to a beginner like me, but is also useful to the seasoned veteran. One feature which I would like to be added is a search bar in the section where you choose which birds to feature in your next game. Sometimes it’s difficult to find a specific species. I wish I could just type in “wrentit” rather than searching through every group and eventually finding it in “sparrows 6”.
  • Hands down amazing!

    Larkwire can be loads of fun when stuck on a commuter train. It is first rate presenting fun birdsong learning games. It is a bit much to really master all the less common calls of every species though. It might be better to focus on the more common songs especially for migrants in a given locale for several of the games. I know really dedicated birders that stopped using Larkwire due to frustration of how tough it is even at non expert level.
  • Excellent App for learning bird songs

    I have tried studying bird songs and call for years, starting with an Ornithology class in college 44 years ago. I’m part of a birdsong study group at a local nature reserve. But, I’ve found nothing as helpful as this app. I learned of it from a Teaching Company - National Geographic Ornithology course, and, boy, do I appreciate the tip!
  • Worth the price

    I still use my free fields guide apps for when I see birds, but this app has absolutely changed my feeling of well being in the woods. It's like overhearing a conversation in a language you know while in a foreign country! The progression of difficulty makes it fun and easy to get started. Definitely check out the settings, too, as there may be a pack that's applicable to you that won't be turned in by default. You can start with song type or habitat type! You can customize playlists! It gives tips all along rather than a tutorial you'll never see again! This app is all good things, and funds go to both improving the app and conservation, it's a win win win!
  • Love it, and here’s how I’d make it better

    1st I love this app. I’ve been using it for years and still keep on coming back to it bc of how much there is to learn from it. Recommendations I’d suggest include showing the sonogram of the general bird song on the info card as for someone who is not musically inclined I don’t understand or hear/“see” pitch. Suggestions on how to remember the tone and tambour would also be helpful (“rich”, “fallen”, “sunny”, “scolding”, etc.) would be greatly helpful too especially to describe birds like the blue-winged, orange, and cerulean warblers, or the buzzy songed birds. This would greatly help in better understanding the bird songs. I’d love to add the water birds to my land birds. It seems as if I’d need to download a separate app just for those. Perhaps it is best to keep them separate, but Idk. I suppose it would be good to explain why it’s better to keep them separate if you’re going to do so. Lastly, and what would be MOST HELPFUL and AMAZING is if you allowed us to filter by state and month. This way if I know I’m going to FL in the winter, look for fall warblers in MD, or shorebirds in IL in April I can just learn/review those birds before hand. If you also included an ability to filter by habitat I’d be willing to even pay an extra $10 for those features!
