Disappointed & done ,

Loved the old app

I bought the new app but the option to change the frost dates isn’t working. Audibly I can hear a scroll to find the date but the calendar numbers are like ghost- invisible- you can’t see them?

I’ll go back and use the old app but wish I could use the one I just spent money on

Developer Response ,

It's fixed now!!! I'm so glad you liked the old version and thanks for letting me know about the problem. :-)

Great app for figuring out what to do when in your garden

I downloaded the new app. It worked great. The date picker worked well. Once I entered the veggies I wanted to grow and the last and first frost dates where I live I was able to get knowledgeable advice on what to do when to grow my plants. I could also tap a button and go to a page with more information about the particular vegetable I was interested in. Give it a try.

Cant add frost dates

If you can’t add your frost dates this doesn’t do much for you. If they fix the bug and you can actually plan to plant when you are supposed to it might be worth it. Really expensive for an app I can’t use.
Don’t buy if you don’t plan on using it on your phone or tablet.
