EcoLek Wins a DEMOgod Award for Birdeez, the iPhone App to Identify, Collect and Share Birds

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 5, 2012) - Birdeez, a location based iPhone app for identifying birds, launched at DEMO Fall 2012 and was awarded a DEMOgod award. DEMO is world-renowned for launching the most innovative products in mobile, social media and disruptive technologies.

Birdeez was awarded a DEMOgod award for their innovative product and presentation. A DEMO first, the Birdeez team was accompanied on stage by a live falcon for their presentation.

Birdeez is the iPhone app that makes it quick and easy for anyone to identify birds, then collect and share their sightings. "The app works like magic by using your location to know what birds are around you. Then with a couple of taps you can choose the size, shape or color to quickly identify the bird you've seen," says Jeff Simeon, CEO of EcoLek, the makers of Birdeez.

Birdeez will be available free for a limited time as part of a special DEMO Fall 2012 promotion. The app is still awaiting final approval from Apple, to reserve your free app and read more about Birdeez visit www.GetBirdeez.com.

"We believe that making bird identification this easy will help everyone get more enjoyment from their time outside. For example, parents and teachers can use Birdeez to teach children about nature and learn more themselves," says Thomas Kuo, COO co-founder.
