Ratings and Reviews
I really do like this app. I have dozens of succulents i keep track of. Yes, its not just for cacti but also succulents. I really wish this app would sync between the ipad and iphone. I enter everything using ipad, but my phone is what goes along with me to nurseries, and...not synched!
I’m Paying for No Customization
I really just paid 8 dollars for this. Wow I can get free apps that I customize from scratch to build a database with info I want. Most of this stuff I don’t even care to keep track of. I have almost 200 succulents that i barely find time to water let alone make a note or watering schedule to keep up with. How would I know my plants weigh and why would it matter. There is no where to note dormancy or blooms. But there is a spot for pot shape and material (once again all of my plants are in terra cotta round so why do I want to keep track of that) I’m disappointed in myself for not trying the lite first. At least if they ever upgrade it to my liking I already own it. Unless you track your succulent in odd areas this app is a skip
Cactus Album review
Just got this app and have entered a few of my numerous plants. It’s pretty easy to use and I have not yet read any directions and am not very computer literate but I’m happy. Adding or changing pictures of your plants is real easy. This app is for someone who knows the names of the plants they have..there is no feature to help one identify plants but developers do let buyers know that. Personally I don’t like the “roll to find a date” feature, its easier to type stuff in. I am having trouble with the “water schedule” feature but Ill figure it out. I would give this 3-4 stars..
