Avelgood Apps releases Twigle, a Birding App That Identifies Birds by Their Songs and Calls

)-- The app is available to download for free from the Windows Phone Store http://www.windowsphone.com/s?appid=5c156d76-539a-40ec-aae3-0e935ce8e21e
Twigle sets itself apart from other bird watching apps for in that it can record a singing bird and identify the bird by its song. For those who have used or are familiar with music recognition apps out there, the concept is the same. Twigle pretty much does for birds what those apps do for music that is being played.
Bird watchers quite often have to try to identify a bird by ear because they can't see the bird. This is were Twigle's audio recognition feature comes in handy as it narrows down the most likely birds.
For those in the northern hemisphere, this will be perfect timing as spring has just set in. The app will be available to download for free.
Twigle has about 300 birds in its separately downloadable databases for North America and Europe. The number of birds that it can recognize using bird song identification is about 100 and Twigle can put the correct bird in the top 10 about 70% of the times.
"Twigle pushes the boundaries of what we can do with our smartphones," said Gift Gana, CEO of Avelgood Apps. He added that, "We do note that the performance is not yet at par with what music recognition apps can do, but it's a huge step in making the task of identifying birds easier."
“We have just made easier the answer to the question ‘What’s that bird?’: ‘Just Twigle it!’”
Twigle also incorporates features found in traditional birding apps. It allows the user to input the bird’s features like size, feather colors, habitat, etc. and the app will find birds that match those features.
Additionally one can search through the birds database by the common name, scientific name or the family of the bird.
