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.
