About this app

The purpose of this project is to develop a user-friendly field guide to grasses and grass-like plants in Idaho, specifically geared to those with limited background in botany. The guide will feature 60 Idaho grasses and grass-like plants, intended for K-16 educators and students, ranchers, land owners, recreationists, and nature enthusiasts, with accompanying K-12 lesson plans. In the form of both a printed book and an offline app for iPhones and Androids, the guide will include colorful photographed images and line drawings showing detailed characteristics and vegetative features of each grass, an easy-to-use dichotomous key, and information on each plant’s history, forage value, and fire resistance.

This dual resource will meet the needs of land managers making economic decisions regarding livestock production and field treatments; university students in wildlife and range sciences conducting class exercises and field research; K-12 educators during field botany excursions, teaching the use of dichotomous keys, and ecosystem studies; and recreationists engaged in nature study. Both book and app will be distributed via the University of Idaho Rangeland Center and the Idaho Rangeland Resource Commission.

UPDATE -- I've found that if I restart tablet immediately after reinstall the plants load ... so far. PREVIOUSLY -- Based on a great field guide but broken. This app has great potential and represents significant work, but is broken on all of my Android devices, including a Samsung tablet I use for collecting field data. Unfortunately no way to contact developers-- emails invalid. Fortunately there is a hardcopy available.

Update 2-- back to hanging after reinstall. Update 1- working fine now. Contact info still out of date. This app was a great resource, but now just spins at 'Loading' for me on both phone and chromebook, despite multiple reinstalls on each device. Unfortunately the contact email is rejected, so there is no way to contact the developer, if they still are maintaing the project. Hopefully they will see this negative review, fix the issue so I can give them the otherwise great review they deserve.

After Aug 2022 update, still doesn't load completely on my phone (Google Pixel 5a), which is unfortunate because this was a great resource. Developer contact email invalid.
