Frequently asked questions

The app won't download

  1. Make sure you have enough available space on your device
    (iOS: Settings > General > Usage; Android: Settings > Storage)
  2. Make sure you are connected to Wi-Fi
  3. If this does not solve the problem, please contact us (see below)

The sounds won't work (iOS devices)

The mute button could be on (some apps ignore the mute button so you may still hear sounds from other apps even if the mute is on).

Apple have a support page for the side switch, but there is an easy way to check if sounds are working in the app:

  1. Plug in a set of headphones
  2. Navigate to Birds > Crimson Rosella (on iPhones tap the Audio icon, bottom right)
  3. Tap the "Crimson Rosella call" line. The play icon should change to a speaker icon.
  4. Is there sound coming through the headphones? If yes, then the device is most likely on mute. If no, and the headphones
    work for listening to music or another app, please contact us (see below)

The app won't open or crashes (Android devices)

Delete the app and download it again. If this doesn't work, you may need to move the app to your SD card:

  1. Go to Settings > Application Manager > Field Guide QLD
  2. Click "Clear data" and then "OK"
  3. Click "Move to SD card"
  4. Open the app again
  5. If this does not solve the problem, please contact us (see below)
