APP OF THE DAY
The secret life of plants
Explore the world of botany from roots to fruits with NAMOO.
Wonders of Plant Life
We often don’t notice leafy plants until they flower or fruit; but so many interesting things have to happen before they bloom. If you’ve ever been curious about how plants grow, then Namoo is for you – it illustrates the entire plant life cycle using detailed 3D images and animated diagrams.
Namoo starts off with four categories: roots, trunks, leaf anatomy and flowers/fruits. These are divided into chapters that include root tips, stems, plant cells and photosynthesis.
The app’s interactive diagrams bring the complex make-up of plants to life. For example, tap the flower icon on the top left and observe how pollination results in a ripening fruit.
The botanical vocab in Namoo gets quite technical, but the captivating animations make the app suitable for all ages. Namoo also comes packed with some extra AR surprises – for instance, you can watch how a tree trunk grows in real time.
There is so much more to the plants and trees you see every day than meets the eye. Explore the world of botany from roots to fruits with Namoo.
