Been on mine for a while now, and seems entirely stable. Don't hold back 👍

No mistake there on my version

It reads (under calls): To all intents inseparable from Swift's. (implies that its call is To all intents inseparable from Swift's call)

The app works great on my Galaxy S6.

Just downloaded - a quick first test: It works just great with OnePlus T3 and Android 7.1.1.
- looks very promissing and worth waiting for! Happy at last!

Best email [email protected]. Don't forget to mention the phone make and model and the version of Android.

Also, does it all work offline?!
It should, but I have been caught out before with things going off looking for internet connectivity.

(the "OK Google" voice command to turn your phone torch on and off, being the most spectacular as it needs to go off to Google HQ and back to execute the command)

Wedejaz's search query got me wondering.

It works offline Peter.

One thing I've noticed is that the introduction alludes to the abundance codes but fails to explain them.

Once you see the abundance code in the plate of the particular bird you're viewing, just tap it (it's tapable). You then get the full status code page.

Oh yes I see - I didn't notice it was in the call section and assumed it was a grocer's apostrophe plural... Well I can't fault it then, except for no call for Siberian Accentor!

The OK Google obviously works differently over here; it will turn the phone flashlight on even when in Airplane Mode.

Just checked, mine also works offline now. They must have updated in the last few months. Must start using that again, it is actually useful now!
Apologies for going off on a tangent.
