With the Wolfram Plants Reference App you will have access to taxonomic and physical data on 170,000 plants at various taxonomic levels, including over 100,000 individual species. This app will introduce you to new botanical information about the plants you encounter everyday as well as provide expertise on plants you never knew existed. With the Wolfram Plants Reference App you can:
- Determine taxonomic sequences
- Explore related plants via sibling and child taxa
- Visualize the North American distribution for naturalized plants
- Compute growth curves for many trees
- Learn both scientific and common names
- Reveal a multitude of physical and locality-based properties

The Wolfram Plants Reference App is powered by the Wolfram|Alpha computational knowledge engine and is created by Wolfram Research, makers of Mathematica—the world's leading software system for mathematical research and education.

The Wolfram Plants Reference App draws on the computational power of Wolfram|Alpha's supercomputers over a 3G, 4G, or Wi-Fi connection.

Not enough information

I am not a plant expert but I know there is probably thousands of species of plants this app doesn't even touch a hundred. I couldn't even find the aloe plant. I agree with the other reviews not enough info for $2.99. I will not delete this app because it does supply some information on a few of the plants that I want to get for my home but since I'm not really a plant person I will not find another plant app

Don't waste your money.

I love Wolfram Alpha so when they came out with a plant app I bit. What a waste of memory. It lists only a few species and you have to keep retuning the name to get the info. Very lame.

What a waste!

If you have Wolframealpha, this app will be totally a waste of money. It simply based on the same computing engine.
