Android BirdGuides App not working

A couple of days ago this stopped updating with new sightings.

I've re-installed the app and still no sightings or pictures, nothing. It just says no sightings for local and national. I wonder what's going on.

I just have the free version.

The RBA App still works but is pretty useless unless you pay for the service.

There is a completely new app which you need to install.

Ok thanks for that. I see that the free version is now just as virtually useless as the RBA version.

The new App doesn't detail the latest sighting anymore though I suppose it is slightly better then RBA if the Nearby sightings are really nearby and you can guess the location. Just looking at it now and Nearby sightings aren't chronological. The dates are all over the place.

I suppose they were losing money putting the most recent sighting details out for free. I guess the Desktop site will be the same. I'm about to check...

I'll have to start following even more people on Twitter or pay for BINS (I'm in Suffolk).

Despite upgrading the Android app today, and using the free version, theres no new data, with the most recent message being yesterday's lack of service message.?!?

Is the App icon a black bird on a white background? You're sure you have the new app?

I tried resetting my password and various other things with the same result, I got so frustrated with it that I gave up! I remember when a phone call was all it took to get the latest sightings and trying to scribble them down before the message ended lol
