Chirp! Europe v3

The latest update for Chirp! Europe is now available in the AppStore! The main additions are two new features - a simple search, and a way of listing favourites, both features that have become more and more necessary as the list of birds continues to increase. In order to add these features, other changes were necessary - for example, the various option buttons needed more room, so they have been moved off-screen. This has the advantage of making the screen look less cluttered, and the buttons can be larger, but the downside is that two taps are now needed in order to change the sorting method. Sorting is now alphabetical by default, and there have also been changes to the database to make it easier to add new languages in future.

These changes will be included in the next update to Chirp! USA (unless I get a lot of negative feedback!).

Another new year!

Happy New Year to all Chirp! fans!

We are still working hard on the next update. I hope all the problems will be fixed soon, so we can get it out and get on with the next update, but we are still seeing an occasional mystery crash (or two). As soon as these are fixed it will be off to Apple, and we can move on to the next update and also carry on with the Bird Guide.

Here's to great things in 2010!
