When you are browsing a list of species, hold down the Control button on your keyboard and scroll down with your mouse wheel. You will be presented with a list of letters of the alphabet. Select any letter to jump to the section containing species that begin with that letter.
You can install iBird on up to five of your Windows 8 devices.
If you want a refund, you must contact Microsoft Customer Support to see if you are eligible.
Favorites are automatically stored in “the cloud.” There is no backup feature for notes at the moment. We may add such a feature in a future release.
Make sure you are logged in using the account you used to purchase iBird. Open the Windows Store. Swipe downward from the top of the screen. A menu will slide down. One of the options will be “Your Apps.” Select it. You will see a list of all of the apps you have purchased. From the pulldown menu in the upper-left corner of the screen make sure select the option “Apps not installed on this PC.” You will see iBird in the list of applications that you have purchased but are not installed. Press the iBird tile to install it.
Unfortunately you must purchase iBird for Windows 8 separately. Each platform has its own store.
If you are using a mouse, right-click on the iBird tile. A menu will pop up at the bottom of the screen. Left-click on the uninstall option.
If you are using a touchscreen device, swipe the iBird tile upward. A menu will pop up at the bottom of the screen. Tap the uninstall option.
SAVE stands for “Smart Attribute Value Elimination.” It is a patented feature of the iBird search engine. SAVE prevents you from selecting search criteria that will yield zero results. It works by hiding options that do not match any species.
For example, one of the option in the shape category is “Hummingbird-like.” If I choose size as “Very Large,” and then I open the shape category I can no longer see the “Hummingbird-like” option. This is because there are no very large birds with the hummingbird shape.
