Aves Vox means the sound of birds in latin. That is exactly what this app is all about. All of the bird species in the world and of those have 90 % at least one belonging sound.
Aves Vox comes in fourteen languages (only in Pro); English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Polish, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish, Swedish, Slovak, Portuguese, Hungarian. Aves Vox contains sounds for over 90 % of the world bird species and all sounds are collected from xeno-canto.org. Each recording is named by the recordist and the id from xeno-canto.org. There are five sound types: call, song, flight call, alarm call and other calls. The species list is based on IOC World Bird List 2013. Together this creates a great library in your smart phone or other unit with over 60 000 recordings. The recording will be downloaded and saved to your unit when you play it for the first time. This means that the app is functional even on your journey or elsewhere you don't have any connection to internet. Aves Vox is a free app without ads for iPhone. Aves Vox Pro is a further development of the free edition Aves Vox. The pro-edition contains the same recordings as Aves Vox. The difference between Aves Vox Pro and Aves Vox is that the pro-edition has more functions that facilitate for you as a user. Functions which make it easier and more fun to use.
Aves Vox therefore offers a more competitively priced alternative which would be an attractive supplement to any field guide. It would prove particularly useful in putting together a collection of bird sounds for a foreign trip or a personal collection of key confusion species, for example.
Aves Vox is almost certainly the most comprehensive bird call app on the market and it's free. A pro version is available for £2.99; this allows users to create their own checklists of species, a useful tool for regular travellers. If you're an active birder with an iPhone, Aves Vox is simply a must-have app.
Having been looking at it today this app is brilliant! (Hence this blogpost!) The potential to download and have ready on your phone pretty much any call or song from Xeno-Canto.
Just a few numbers for fun.
