BirdGenie’s interface is built for effortless operation. Hear a bird, tap record, get results. Simple as it feels, we designed the UX/UI considering typical worst-case scenarios for users: A fleeting song that must be captured immediately, direct sunlight glaring through a tree... The app is functionally intuitive, relying on simplicity for recording.
The app displays exactly how confident it is that an identification is correct, and provides audio samples of the bird's various songs to compare with the user's recording, as well as color photos, useful information, and links to further reading. Users can add comments, photos, and other info to recordings, track history with a convenient log, and easily share everything with friends and other users. No internet connection is needed to produce a match, making BirdGenie accessible regardless of cell phone signal.
A deeper exploration reveals a serious tool for bird enthusiasts and academics. Multiple matching features, recording library interaction and management, and share functionalities show that this fun app is also ready and able to contribute to the greater scientific community with data collected in the field.
