I loved using this on my Samsung Galaxy S4. Very helpful for determining planting times and starting requirements in an unusual zone (9b/10). Just updated to the Pixel running 7.1.1 and the app will not load up. The home screen (pretty veggie picture) shows and then it just goes white. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling but to no avail. Hoping that they get a new release out soon to resolve this.
Could offer more specific info It wants to sell large quantities of Burner seeds (Home Depot is a better deal for my small plot.) It uses generic plants instead of specific varieties sold by Burpee. It does not let you actually layout the garden, you just have list of vegetables.
A few things of concern I'd love to give this a higher rating, I really would. It's Burpee, with 140 years experience supplying, and advising gardeners. However, I don't understand why I have to logon an app I've downloaded to my own phone everytime i want to use it. I also noticed that Burpee never addresses any of the issues raised here. Don't they check this site periodically for users concerns, or do they just not care?
S4 Glitchy. Appears to be clear and easy to navigate, but the in app navigation options do not work properly. I had to force stop 2x to create and add to the first garden. I didn't get far enough to understand how to choose specific breeds of vegetables such as peppers and cucumbers. Sorry had to delete. Too much storage space for too little benefit. Will check back often for improvement.
I like the concept. Frost dates are jist wrong. How can April 1 be listed as the frost date for Dedham MA? Also confused by the dates, when it says indoor sow between Feb 5 and Jan 22 does it mean between Feb 5, 2016 and Jan 22 2017 or do they just have the dates backwards? Keep working on it. Has potential. It would be nice if developers responded to some of the issues. No support that I can find.
Just got the update It has told me to put things out a month or so too early, but I see a couple of things coming back from the dead. I'm hoping this update helps. I really like that it tells you which plants to start indoors as well as info about the individual plants. I like this app pretty well.
- Added Perennials and Fruits
- Fix for N/A frost dates for some zip codes
- New Video Player (requires hardware acceleration).
If the application does not automatically ask you to download the new plant data, close the application and restart.
