** Note: This is the free Lite version of Bonsai Album. The Lite version is almost identical to the full version, but only allows you to store up to 3 bonsai, 3 pots, and 3 log entries with 3 photos each. It also includes database backup and export over WiFi (but not restore/import), allowing easy upgrade to the full version. The full version has no such limitations. **

This is a wonderful way to keep my Bonsai catalogued with detail and photos. Whether you want to keep just a little data or a lot of data per tree and pot, the fields are there for you. I especially love adding photos so I can go back and see (and show off!) the progress I have made with my trees. And with AirDrop, I can easily transfer the database between my iPad and iPhone so they both are up to date.

I started with this Lite Version, then quickly purchased the full version so I could add more trees. You can even transfer your database from the Lite Version to the full version without losing the data you have entered.

I love it when the developer gives an opportunity to try an app before purchasing it. Wish more developers would.

Great trial version, works well

I was wondering if the full version includes a log where to keep notes. I’d like to keep notes of maintenance: date repoted, date fertilized, reshaped, etc.

Wow this is Amazing

This app is great for keeping track of your bonsai and pots and is a great app for keeping note of when you trimmed or fertilize your tree. Overall this app is great for bonsai enthusiasts with overwhelming number of bonsais.
