Here’s to an apt ‘app’ for everything
There are a few Indian iPhone apps that I wish existed: one that would recognize things in nature, for instance. Just as the app SoundHound is able to listen to a song and tell me the name of the band and even the lyrics, I wish I could record birdsong and have an app tell me what bird it is. There are dozens of such birdwatching apps from acclaimed field guides such as Petersen, Sibley (the best of the lot, according to Birderslibrary.com), Audubon, and National Geographic, but they apply to North American birds. A great app is Build-a-bird, which shows viewers how birds adapt by changing beak size and shape.
