Amazing App With Just A Few Issues
I love Growit!, and would recommend it to anyone who wants a gardening app. The format is great and encourages community engagement and I love the Plant Master program! It’s a fun app to use and you can earn free plants and other stuff through participation. The only reason I can’t give it 5 stars is because it is still a bit buggy. The issue that bothers me most is that when posting images, the top of the image is cut off and you have to guesstimate the amount of cutoff you’re going to get to still have your plant visible. There’s also just that sometimes it will freeze after posting a plant. However, many past bugs have been fixed, and I don’t think the remaining ones ruin the app. It’s true that many plants aren’t in the database and it takes ages to get them added, but I think that’s acceptable since you can just post the plant under a different name and clarify in the comments what it actually is.
Missing a bit
This app is great for gardening community! However you are slow to receive answers to your questions if you live in a less populated area like I do. You should be able to turn the location factor on and off so that many people can see your posts and you can see many other peoples posts! I don’t like that the photos are cropped differently than when you choose when posting them and you should be able to add more than one photo per post. But over all this app is great! PLEASE fix the location thing though. I think you will find that users are more active when they can see more posts than just the few in their area.
Buggy and needs more features
As someone who has never grown a plant but wants to get in to it, I think it’d be useful to have some kind of planning/preparation feature, where you can do research on what kind of plants you might want to have and the care you would have to give it before you actually go get the plant. You can kind of do that with your projects, but only if you add someone else’s plant. As far as I can tell, you can’t search or view an index of plants and their care. I’d love to see something like that in the future!
Also, I was testing out the “add plant” feature, and took a random photo and labeled it some random plant to see how it worked, but now I can’t seem to delete it: the “delete plant” button doesn’t work. So now I have a random photo of my apartment on my profile :(
