I have Pizzey and Knight on a Samsung phone and find that the screen
freezes so that when I try to look at a bird I can tap - sometimes for 2
mins, without a response- so it is unreliable. I thought it was the android
phone, but have heard of other people having this problem. I also have a
problem finding the bird I want on the screen as they have placed 3 or 4
birds on the one screen and without swapping glasses, I cannot read the
text - even after changing the text to the largest available. Thus I don't
know which of the 3/4 birds I want to look for.Once the single bird is on
the screen, the text is lovely and clear, but frustrating having to tap on
4 other birds, to get to the one I want.
I have Morcombe on my Ipod  and it works well. It is always responsive and
the text is large enough to be able to find the bird required with one tap.
I think I prefer the calls on PK.
Both have there pros and cons and having bought Pizzey for my phone so that
I don't have to carry two devises with me, I am carrying two devices anyway!
