Another new app online!

Today we launched our new app “Vogelführer Birdlife Schweiz” – a helpful and fun-to-use app to identify 308 bird species in Switzerland.

The app originated from the cooperation with BirdLife Schweiz, one of the largest nature conservation organisations in Switzerland.

“Vogelführer Birdlife Schweiz” not only provides you with free identification plates  and lots of information to each bird, but also with helpful features like a search function and manual Id function.

The free basis version can be supplemented with a subscription to songs and calls, vidoes to each species included in the app, 3D models with an AR function, an automatic Id function and more.

The app is available for the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.

You can find more information on the app on our apps product page under this link:
