Ratings and Reviews
Great app, but an iPad version would also be fantastic 😃
2 stars only for a good idea, but Dont waste your money, not intuitive to use, help is only one page and useless, crashes, i want my money back
Best plant app available
As a gardener/landscaper I use this app very often on an iPad and it blows me away! It is a great tool for anyone who is into plants.
I use it for plant ID and get all the stuff I could possibly want to know about a huge range of plants like care info on pruning, aspect, soil, position and so on as well as loads of info on cultivars, pests, size and you can download selections and email them or open them on another ipad or iphone for easy sharing.
Best of all I can use it on the go which is where I am mostly.
Print books will stay a great resource for me when I'm designing a garden but I often want/need to know something when I am on the job and my plant book library is a bit too big and heavy to cart around whereas my ipad is portable without hassles.
The entire database can be downloaded on your device which is easy for when there's no wifi or if you don't have 3 or 4G.
Great value app, great tech service at a very low price (less than 10 bucks! ) - that is 10 OUT OF 10 for me!
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
