For what it's worth, I've been submitting checklists for nearly two years
from an app called Birdwatchers Diary. Originally I had to write to a file,
copy it to the PC via iTunes and import it to eBird, but the current version
allows direct uploading.
Last week when it was mentioned I downloaded and tried Birdlog (what's to
lose at $.99, right?). It didn't really work for me, most likely due to the
device I'm using (an iPod without GPS functionality). After several
attempts to create a personal location I gave up.
The biggest advantage I see to Birdlog is that you can go to eBird and
select a hotspot, if that's where you're going to bird. In the FAQs I found
a mention of a hope in some future version to have the capability to access
your personal locations. In the meantime (for me, at least), Birdwatchers
Diary is much more mature and full-featured, and has decent documentation on
how to use it.
