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!


  1. I have seen your chirp for iphone, and I really envy iphone owners - only for that. I hope you will consider making the program for the android market too? please? I have a htc hero and most of the apps from iphones are also made for us, but not this, which is really what I ever wanted. Thank you in advance....!
    Yours sincerely

  2. Hi Elizabeth and thanks for the compliment! I think it's unlikely that we will make Chirp! for android phones in the near future mainly due to lack of time, but also because I don't know anything about Android development myself, so I'd have to get someone else to do it. However, it is a good idea so I'll think about it!

  3. Before I have got iphone with Chirp. It was wonderful. Since several months, I have replaced my iphone by an Android phone. But I haven't find anymore Chirp... :-((

  4. Sorry Veig, we don't have any plans at the moment to make an Android version, as we still more than fill our time with our iPhone apps. But we are not saying never - maybe in the future!
