There are NO songs in this app. ZERO. You have to load them from another app.
There are currently four other apps that are associated with this app: Birding Via Mic New World, ... Old World, ... Orient Australasia. The songs were selected by the recordists as their favorites (at my request) and ... North American Common (the songs were selected by me.) These apps contain songs for their respective region (called YourRegion below) but no functionality other than supply this app with the songs they contain. You will need to install one (or more if desired) of these and transfer the songs to this app.
If you are running on Android Version 6.0 or greater, verify your permissions are turned on:
Settings > Applications > Application Manager > Birding Via Mic > Permissions
To transfer the songs:
1) Install this Birding Via Mic app.
2) Install Birding Via Mic_YourRegion app and verify Birding Via Mic_YourRegion shows Files:greater than zero
3) In Birding Via Mic_YourRegion tap Songs button and verify a list of songs is displayed
4) In this Birding Via Mic app tap the Path button, select Birding Via Mic -- YourRegion, tap the Load Now button.
Uninstall the Birding Via Mic_YourRegion app to recover memory.
Please follow the American Birding Association code of ethics, by not playing back your songs where the birds can hear them.
This app has three main areas: 1) Database management which allows you to modify, edit and maintain your bird list, 2) Identifying birds from your recordings (given enough data), 3) The songs supplied with this app.
