Default BBirdMaps

It was pointed out to me today that the Android app for submitting your location was no longer available on Google Play, probably because I'm not paying them. Just about everything Google is doing now has a cost.


I uploaded the app to the BBirdMaps.com website, and found that it will easily install from there, although you have to jump through a couple of clicks to allow it to install for security reasons since it isn't "official" anymore.


I haven't used the app in quite awhile myself, and I see that at some point it stopped loading maps when you hit "Get Location" but that doesn't keep it from working. Just wait for the blue dot and hit return to populate the Lat/Long fields.


Google now charges for use of their maps, since sometime in the last month. I signed up and they are working again on BBirdmaps.com. Had to give them a CC number, but the first year or $300, whichever comes first, is free. Looks like it will run in the $10 per month range. A number of members have suggested a donate button, but I'll wait and see how it goes. Low cost is not a problem for me.


Please let me know if anything isn't working right.

Not that it was slow before but today it's acting like it's stored on my computer!
