I'm not a big board game app player, but it's clear that a lot of care and attention went into this implementation. It features an original soundtrack, voice acting for the bird facts, bot AI, and even small animations for the bird art. My biggest issue is with the interface; it's designed with a one-size-fits-all approach across mobile and PC. This means every platform looks the same despite varying screen sizes and control methods. There's no way to nicely view an overview of all three bird rows and all the information you need at once. There are different view modes, but regardless of the one you choose, multiple swipes/clicks/taps are needed to scroll through everything. What's worse is that there's no way to lay out or organize your hand, which is a critical part of effective strategic planning in this game.
I'd recommend this app for those wanting to learn and get into the game. But I believe the original game is still the best and fastest way to play. Hopefully my interface quibbles can be fixed with updates eventually.
