Bud is a visual diary of your plants life. Growers have kept journals for years to track their plants health and development. The information derived from monitoring a plants life cycle has helped increase yield and potency over time. Up until now most growers have used a variety of tools to track this information, excel sheets, word documents, photo galleries, and good old pen and paper. Bud aims to put this all in one place and give growers an organized way to track grows.

Growing is often a solitary activity and for those who want to keep it this way bud allows users to keep all their journals private. But for those who like to share, get feedback, discuss strains, talk techniques, and ask advice, bud offers a way for users to easily share their journals with the community. Public journals can be seen by all, and users can follow individual grows or other users to keep up to date with their latest updates. Privacy is important to growers so all images are stripped of meta data before being stored and shared.

Bud’s aim is to provide a product people like to use, so feedback is encouraged, happy growing.

Nice tool for just 1 thing.

So I will start by saying. I love the app. I love the ability to have a private diary for your own archives. But one thing I do wish this app has is the ability to expand photos to full screen mode that way I don’t have to use two hands punching my way around the screen. Please developers make that happen as soon as you can. All and all great app. Nice to to have for documentation purposes.

Perfect grow log, my 5th year using this

This is my 5th year logging on this app and everything about the app has been very user friendly. I log what grow in my garden each summer so I could reference what I did. Benefiting my garden more and more each year. Sharing your log with people who don’t have the app is very useful as it’s fun to share and hear opinions. The developer of the app is hands on within the community of growers looking for ways to better the app which I appreciate. The online community of this app is also very helpful. You do have the option to keep your logs private for those who are paranoid. I have 3 stars because even tho I really like this app I believe it could be better. Maybe video posting options, a member to member rating feature determining how helpful and knowledgeable they are. Special Thanks to the developer!

Recent Update is Promising!

New update is clean and nice and has created more of a social growing experience. I like it, but I think some notable upgrades could be gleaned from the app “Grow With Jane”

I think the social functions are far better than Grow With Jane. I like the types of actions And the UI of that app though. I think there is a niche in the digital marijuana grow journal space and both bud. And growth with Jane are the leaders in the category.

If bud. Can create an easy to structure report UX , as opposed to the open ended post system, I think I would consider this as a true grow journal rather than a social media app for marijuana growing

Original post:
Great app bummer it isn’t updated you. You can’t mark grows as done so you will have a huge long list of plants that will cause the app to run slower and slower. There is no export feature so you can’t send all your photos to your email or cloud drive to save them if you want to delete the grow and make space for more.

It looks pretty, but also pretty slow. I do not think I will continue to use this app because the lack of dev support and updates. The app fees half baked.

Developer Response ,

Feel free to check out the new update, your analysis was not wrong as the first version was meant to serve as a proof of concept, this version is 100% rewritten to make it easier to maintain, add to, and update going forward.
