  1. Add support for Code Synonym lists to mobile apps

    In order to speed up the selection of species in the field, it would be very useful to have support for the code synonym feature you have on the Windows app, which allows you to define short code aliases for species name.Users would then be able to create and share synonym lists based on standards (such as BTO and BBL) or their own lists.

  4. Add a "seen" tab in the mobile app

    Since it's common to see the same species at different time during an birding session, so by adding a "Seen" tab in entry screen, we can easily and quickly add a new observation for a species already seen in the current birding session. Currently to record a seen species in the current birding session, we need to key in the name of the birds again.

  6. Filter Locations when adding entries

    When creating an entry it would be good to be able to filter the list of locations the same way you can do for adding sightings.

    I have a large number of locations and when I am looking for an existing location it is a pain to have to scroll down the list to find the one I want to use

  7. Bring other wildlife onto the summary screen

    I keep moth records on Bird Journal, which hugely expands its use for me.

    It would be nice to see the moth records on the summary page though.

  8. Summary Page addition

    On the Summary Page under Species Progress can you add a line for a user defined category that would be selected from any of the defined locations. This would allow the user to track a life count for a state or province, country or any other specific location of special interest to the user.

  10. Provide separate checklists for Eastern and Western North America

    I like to use paper checklists in the field where cellular service is iffy. The full North American checklist prints out at 27 pages. Generating East and West checklists would require that North American birds be regionally tagged in the database, and they would need to have more than one region as there is overlap for some birds that appear in both regions.

  11. Make the general web page more informative

    Have on your main web page about Bird Journal a link to e.g. all the countries etc that are covered, all the wildlife groups that you have covered etc. . In other words, make the page more informative????

  12. On mobile app, add letters to help navigage the subscriber's species list

    On the mobile app, the search bar on the right for the Add species list has letters that makes it easier to jump to the area where the species you are looking for is. The search bar for the subscriber's own species list only has dots, and you need to estimate the distance down the line to jump to the right area. Better still, if you could enable to type in letters to more accurately help with the search this would be awsome!

  17. Enter a checklist for Birds Of Florida or even the USA.

    Is it possible to have a Florida specific or USA list rather than using the whole world list?

  18. Re-postition species name within an entry

    When you select entries and then on a specific entry, consider having the species name at the top (rather than it saying 'Entry' above where that date etc is located. You can view the species name more easily and also with the species name at the bottom currently, the text is too cramped and is overexposed on top of species count and Good view etc.

  20. Revert to v4 photo thumbnails displayed by month

    In v5 you can only see a narrow strip of photo thumbnails on LH side. In previous versions, it was possible to see all the photos for a relevant month at once and the ability to scroll through many rows of thumbnails at a time. Thus; you can see at a glance the quality birds you saw (or not) that month: or, just scroll through the years and reminisce ..
