Parrots Facts app review: A reference guide to parrots



If you are interested in learning about parrots or want a reference guide to parrots for academic purposes, then Parrots Facts - Expert is one app that you should definitely check out on your iPhone or iPad.

The best green apps for iPhone

What we have here is an app that comes packed with photos and descriptions of various parrot species, bringing a colorful cornucopia of vivid imagery onto your iOS device.

You’ll find this app in the Reference section of the App Store, where it can be purchased for $2.99, but it will take up a good 271 MB of space!

Main Interface

Parrots Facts - Expert takes a while to download but it is worth it when you consider that it will ring you a good 1500 high-quality images to your iOS device that can be accessed anytime, anywhere.

The main interface consists of six options, namely Compare, Search, Random, Test 30, My Box, and About.

Shuffle through the photos in Random mode and check out the images in full-screen view. This app enables you to zoom in on the photos to capture every fine detail of the parrot and yet manages to retain the quality.

Functions & Features

Gesture-based navigation allows you to move through photos seamlessly by swiping left or right, and when you find one that you love, simply save the entry to the My Box section with one tap. You can also use the photos of parrots as your wallpaper.

The app also allows users to search for parrots using the common name. Though the search works beautifully, I think the app has room for improvement in this area. An option to search for birds by image would be a fantastic way to allow users to identify any parrots they see.

The app does promise the function of helping users with identification but since the database is so vast and wonderful, it would be a great boost to the features of the app if other search parameters were incorporated.
