Review from A Google User
Needs a database to provide recommended maintenance schedules for flowers/fruits/veg, so I don't have to look up all that info for each plant.
Brilliant for recording plants with photos, past and present Very versatile and easy to access information. Does exactly what I want. I use a new "garden" for each bed. Would like to know if it can be backed up in case of emergency. I'm worried about giving up my written records. Also if or how to access photos taken at another time to link to "flowers"
Reminder doesn't work Good idea in principle, but I can't get the reminder function to work. The only date that can be used is today's date, which is no good if I want to remind myself to prune in a few month's time....
Puzzling...not in a good way 1. If you, like me, don't like to broadcast your location all the time, you'll have turn it on when you are creating a new garden. The app doesn't explain how or in what form user is to "enter location." There are many ways to input location: zip code, latitude/longitude, city/state. 2. Developer should beta test his work; try putting it on tablets -- easier to read -- and take it to a senior citizen center. 3. The Email link is not working.
Great design I love being able to categorize "gardens" and then list the plants that are in each one. I wish the app could be backed up, though. I'm hesitant to put in all my data at the risk of having to do a factor reset some day. Lack of backup aside, it's an outstanding way to catalog your garden, photograph the plants, and update them with notes and future photos to track progress.
Unable to transfer to new phone This app has been progressing nicely, and did everything I wanted it to do! Except now I have a new phone, and I'm unable to get the data onto it. Will be looking at the other gardening apps to see who offers online backup/login.
Worked great untill I added 4 plants. Now it force closes like crazy! I really like this app I just really wish it would function properly
This is a maintenance release.
Update: support for old android versions
1. Allow notes to accept pictures from gallery
2. Allow notes to have the attached picture changed
3. Use the Action Bar on Android versions that support it.
