| June 27, 2017 | 0 Comments

If you are intrigued by the chirps of various birds around you, check this app out: ChirpOMatic USA for iPhone. You just got to record a birds sound, and the app’s automatic voice recognition part will take care of the rest. You can download ChirpOMatic USA Automatic Bird Song Recognition app for $3.99 from iTunes App Store.


ChirpOMatic USA for iPhone provides the easiest way to identify bird sounds around you. The best part is that the app can work wherever you are – if you don’t have internet or a mobile connection then the app analyses the sound on the device. And unlike most other bird apps, its special Bird-Safe mode means that the app can be used without the risk of disturbing birds. Animals and birds have a more sensitive sense of hearing than humans, and any unwanted frequency could disturb them. The app works like how Shazam or SoundHound work for music. When you hear an intriguing bird sound, quickly hold up your phone and start recording. The app analyses the sound, and shows you the top matches. You can compare your recording with the reference samples to check the identification. In case, you don’t have your iPhone, you can use your Apple Watch to record sounds for identification later. The recordings you’d made are all saved in your iPhone. You can listen to them later, or share them with your friends. If you want to play a part in improving the app, you can send them the sound, which the app makers use for training their system. If you have no objections, ChirpOMatic USA will post the best recordings on the Xeno-canto website, the world-wide resource for bird and bird sound research.

The UI design is user friendly. If to talk about performance, the bird identifications made by ChirpOMatic USA were found to be precise all the time. But it should be noted that the app works best when you record real bird chirps. If you test on recorded sounds, you need to play the sounds at a realistic volume. ChirpOMatic requires iOS 8.0 or higher.

Final Take

ChirpOMatic USA for iPhone helps you quickly identify bird species from their sounds. The app concentrates on backyard birds usually found in North America. So it might not work in Asia or Australia. The recorded sounds are stored locally, and you can listen to them or share them with others as you please. UI is well designed and easy to use. The app is also stable and responsive. Check it out if you are an ornithologist or someone who just love to listen to bird chirps.
