Works great It is a basic visual aid for a square foot garden. The only criticism I have is that the length of the bed should be unlimited sense the only real restriction on the dimension of the beds according to the SFG method is that it with is no greater than four feet wide. Mel does of course say that he doesn't recomend it be longer than fifteen feet. But he also says that if your landscape has a long walk way that bordering it with 3 foot wide beds is a great use of space.
No backup?? This app served my purposes well enough. It is a little backwards in that each time I open it, I have to go in and make the labels visible. Worse than the limited user-friendliness, however, is that I have upgraded to a new phone and have discovered that the app saves no memory of my garden bed information from my previous phone. With 72 total square feet of garden space, I'm a little miffed about this and will now Seek a different app that allows data backup.
Handy app I haven't used this app very long but so far seems to be very useful. Easy to use. Only thing I would change is to make it so you can transfer data from one section to the next. That would make it so you wouldn't have to type the same info over again with more than one of same plant.
Best Sq. Ft. for Android Two drawbacks: Awful plant illustrations and limited configurations of plants per square that may not match how you plant -- beans are 8 -9 per square, not 4 like the picture. The plant info is limited and not really worth it. Combined with Gardroid Premium, I have a good record of my efforts. Now, if I could put the two together, with better graphics, I'd have a nearly perfect app. (There is a Sq. Ft. Garden app, but it only runs on the iPhone and Kindle.)
Fair It could use a lot of features. I used Garden Tracker on my iPod touch and that's a lot closer to what I'd be looking for in this type of app. A few suggestions: A plant database. It should include fields for plant category (vegetable, flower, herb), planting requirements (time, distance, depth), harvesting requirements and results, sun, etc. Ability to add/edit/delete multiple plants at the same time, not just copy/paste one at a time. Very tiresome to add the same plant 8 times. I'm out of room...
Has potential. Needs extended copy and paste (paste to multiple squares). Unable to access journal. An editable library of plants and short comments would help. Link to a calendar for plant and harvest planning.
Rename Bed option added to menu.
Replaced note field for individual square plots.
fixed orange dots bug.
