Love it!

I love this app have had it since the 2nd gen touch was new or about then --I have seen many changes in it in that time and while it doesn't update a ton it's a very stable platform and has a ton of good info as well it's my first reference app if this dosent have the plant then I go to another app

As always room for improvement and I know some of what I've commented to the developers they had in mind --in the past (I haven't opened lately) there were some that didn't have pictures but they weren't common to me so I wasn't overly concerned by it

Makes going outside even more interesting!

Such a cool app! I’m a conservation biology major and I’ve always really liked plants but aside from their appearance never really knew anything else about them. This app has cool little descriptions of the plants, their characteristics, their range, and even their effect on the surrounding soil(COOL)! Some entries are more detailed than others, but I’ve learned a lot from it and there’s even a little section that lists what part of the plants have historically been used as medicine, so now I can follow along when my horticulture friends start talking about all the properties of mint and crud.

Great reference app but needs some help

I was so excited to see this app. It's a great little reference app. However I didn't give it 5 stars because it wish it could be more expansive (I.e. How can it not have rhodiola? ) Also many of the entries are cut off in mid sentence so that's disappointing. However it does have lots of information such as contraindication, etymology, plant part use and medicinal uses. It's very general but it's a good snapshot and there's a bonus section on how to make tinctures and some others. Wish I could also search by scientific name. There are some herbal books I own that only list the scientific names so this would be a helpful tool. However I'm glad I have it.
