            Pros

            • unique way to learn bird song by playing a game
            • useful recordings and mnemonics to help remember bird calls
            • comprehensive collection of recordings

            Cons

            • user interface can be confusing
            • difficult to isolate the birds you are interested in
            • to get most North American birds you have to buy two apps
             

            “The Larkwire team believes that this system is “the easiest, fastest, most enjoyable way to learn bird songs”. I agree with them. If you want to learn bird songs, especially if you’ve tried other methods with limited success, I’d recommend Larkwire.”
