Well done

:
I've been looking for a wildflower app for a while (yes, I'm aware there are others but they are from publishers whose work hasn't impressed me in the past and their prices don't encourage me to gamble on another disappointment). I found this one last week. This app is well done. You can browse through flower photos by color to find what you are looking for or use the Search. The Search allows you to enter such information as Location, Habitat, Flowers (petal type/arrangement) and leaves. I've "tested" the search functionality against known flowers. Works well. You can also look up known flowers by name (Latin or common) in the Index. The photos are of good quality and many species have multiple photos.

I found the fruit section to be particularly of interest and look forward to seeing it expanded. However, that section has already allowed me to solve the puzzle of a seed head that has eluded me for a couple years.

The app could be improved by the addition of more species and also by the inclusion of alternate common names in the text (some a.k.a's). For example, Monarda fistulosa is known also as "wild bergamot" in addition to "mint-leaf bee balm," Clematis hirsutissima is also known as "sugarbowl," Anemone patens is known as "pasqueflower," etc.

I hope the publisher continues to add to this app. This buyer would be willing to pay for updates that added significant content. I'm satisfied with what I received for what I paid, for sure, but I still want more. In the mean time, and perhaps most telling of all, I will go buy the other wildflower apps from the same publisher as I now know and am satisified with the quality of their product.

Ahh this is good.

:
Been looking for a wildflower app for the Pacific Northwest. I'm very pleased with this one. I especially like the web links to the Burke. I had already been using that site from time to time, and I felt like I had a connection to the folks who know about this area. It's always nice to find a resource for the Pacific Northwest instead of being subjected to merely "Western US". I don't think you can overestimate the value of a field guide that weighs so little! Thank you for making this app!

Lovely wildflower App

:
As a long-time botanist, I really appreciate how easy this is to use (when I was trying to get my daughter to start learning flowers), and how beautiful the photographs are. I wish I had a chance to get out to the mountains to use it more often.

Digital keys are hard to put together, and all the ones I tried worked perfectly. So if you're headed to the mountains and don't want to carry a big flora or flower book, try this. You'll love it.
