ChirpTracker Mobile, Now with Auto-location! June 29th, 2009

ChirpTracker Mobile ( has just received a small, but substantial update. We’ve created an all new Sighting form to make sharing your sightings from the field easier than ever. The updates include:

  • Brand new, easy to use form. This form has an individual field for Species, Location and your update text, just like the web interface!
  • Auto-complete species names as you type. The new interface will finish the species name that you’re typing, as you type it. For example, if you start typing in “Red tailed H”, a nice list of species will show up below the text box and “Red-tailed Hawk” will be at the top. Just tap on the name of the species you want and you’re done!
  • Automatic location. This is a great new feature. If you’re on the iPhone 3.0 OS, you will see a button appear below the location box, it says “Find my location”. Simply touch that button and we will automatically find your current location! Now that’s cool.
  • Interface updates. As with the recent interface update of the website, we’ve also slightly updated the mobile site with some cleaner graphics and easier to use layout. We’ve also updated your themes to match the updated themes on the website.

Following are a few screenshots to illustrate our changes:

What are you waiting for? Get outside, go birding and try out the new and improved ChirpTracker Mobile from the field! As always we would love to hear your feedback!

    Can’t seem to autolocate from the field anymore since I updated to OS 3.1 – bug fix coming soon? This was my favorite feature!
