Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, March 06, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Bird song identification is useful for the many times when you can’t see the bird but can hear it singing.
This is what sets Twigle apart from other birding apps out there, as it has the ability to record a singing bird and identify the bird by its song. It essentially does for birds what music recognition apps do for music.
Twigle, developed by Avelgood Apps, is going to be released on the Windows Phone Store later on this March, which will be in time for spring in the northern hemisphere.
Twigle returns the correct bird in the top 10 about 70% of the times. The total number of birds that Twigle’s database has about 300 birds, and those that it can recognise using audio is currently about 100 species, representing European and North American birds.
"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."
For scenarios when bird song recognition is not possible e.g. when there is a lot of noise or for species that are not yet in the audio recognition database, Twigle incorporates features found in traditional birding apps that allow the user to input the bird’s features like size, feather colours, habitat, etc. and the app will find birds that match those features.
