Developers Isoperla have launched a new version of their Bird Song Id app for smart phones and tablets.
The app includes a unique Automatic Recognition feature that helps identify Britain’s common bird species and is a little like Shazam for birds.
Automatic Recognition works by analysing an audio recording the user makes of a bird singing and presents a list of birds with the percentage likelihood for each species.
No connection to the internet is needed as the analysis takes place on the device itself.
Bird Song Id is available for iPhone and iPad from the Apple App Store, and for Android devices from Google Play.
The app can be found on the Apple App Store
