Latest news

It's been very quiet here on the blog recently, as well as on Twitter and Facebook. This is because we have been working flat out on our ambitious new project - a bird guide for Britain. For a long time I wasn't sure if this bird guide would ever become a reality, but I realised today that it won't be much longer before it will be ready for release! There are already a few bird guides available for the UK, but most are rather small and none make use of the iPhone's features, so we hope that ours will be a success.

I'll be glad when it is released and we can get back to working full-time on Chirp! There are so many new features we want to add! Now that the number of birds in each app has increased so much, we really need to add a search feature, and we've also been asked for a way of marking favourites. We also have a exciting new feature halfway done, but it isn't quite right yet - I am really looking forward to adding this feature as I think it will be great for the dark winter days when birds are silent..... ;).

New updates are due out for Chirp any time now - they are with Apple and we are just waiting for them to be released. The Chirp! USA update is a Thanksgiving special, so I hope it is released in time!
