Audubon apps vs ibird apps
I've generally found the Audubon apps very accessible as this poster notes in another forum post. But while the app itself is pretty accessible, there is a new startup screen for the latest version of the Audubon Birds app (v 3.1, January 17, 2013) that prompts users to register for an account with NatureShare. The problem is that the buttons on this screen are graphics, and are not like the screens of older Audubon apps, like Audubon Birds and Butterflies, where you can optionally register or not, and you can choose not to view this screen for future startups. The NatureShare button options have announcements like "Green reg" button (more than one entry) and "button". If you do a screen capture and send this to an OCR app like TextGrabber, you can find out that these buttons are "Already a Member? Sign in" and "Create a new account", while the "button" at the bottom of the screen is "Cancel". Furthermore, if you choose "Cancel", this nag screen comes up every time you start the app. This is a new and unwelcome feature. It only appears to be present currently for the new Birds app, which was recently revised -- not the older Birds in combination with other categories apps.
