Superb App.

Tried several other Apps some very expensive but this App is free and the community behind it seem to be very informed and very helpful overall an excellent App.

A great app with some teething problems

I’ve been looking for an app for a while that can provide personalised gardening care guides and it’s great to see Crocus providing this for free. The advice seems sound and the pictures of each plant you’ve saved are really useful. I do find the search function a little clunky though, a search for ‘bluebells’ brings up nothing; you have to go off and find the Latin name to search. If there’s the slightest typo in any of these Latin names (easily done when trying to type on a phone) the search draws a blank, rather than making a best guess. I’m sure these things will improve in time, and it’s not to take away from the huge endeavour of converting all this knowledge into a really useful app, but with some tweaks this app could be amazing.

Room for improvement but a good idea

Great app but we need lot more…
Connect search with multiple databases not just Crocus, use better search engine which can predict/ suggest alternatives in case of a spelling error, interface could be significantly more intuitive and clearer with better hierarchy, allow future expansion capabilities to add Lidar scans, garden orientations and almost be able to geolocate plants.
People will fill your data base with loads of information from buying capacities to preferences…data is value!
Fantastic start, brilliant idea but lot to be desired!

Developer Response ,

Hi Sau, thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback! We'll take it on board for future development. All the best, the Iris team
