So the drawing of the currant isn't really all that good and even though he mentions a glossary (non-existant) and some plants only seem to have 1 picture, though you can scroll over a few more times only the comment line changes not the picture. But for all that it's still better than lugging a book around. I didn't have any problems with the pictures, downloaded quick and they look good.
The bad: Images don't load when swiped to see more. Sometimes they do, but rarely. The UI is clunky and weird, this would be much better if it was just a standard off-the-shelf material design implementation. The good: - The information within this app is incredible, unparallelled. - The creator of it has found a new developer and is pushing forward with a much better version for all of us.
I was very impressed with this app until I got a new phone and it does just like the other bad reviews stated. Won't download the pictures, and keeps stopping. Some compatibility issues with the newer Android versions.. Please get it straightened out.
I'm upgrading my rating from a 2 to a 4 due to some improvements in the functioning of the App. The content information provided by Steve Brill is excellent, but the images download function still has serious problems as of 10-12-17. First, despite what the App description claims, it actually places the images on the internal phone memory, NOT on the microSD card. (I experienced this with 2 different brand phones.) If you can't spare tying up 2.38 GB of your phone's internal memory for the images, I would strongly hesitate purchasing this App as it currently is. Second, downloading is a total pain with this App (buggy). Expect to clear the image folders and re-attempt image downloading several times before it will successfully get all the images loaded. I now finally have a fully functioning App thanks to a high internal memory phone and probably 10 or more image download attempts. Be persistent.
I have tried and tried to load the images, to no avail. I've now given up. Books don't let you down!
Having the same problem as the other 2 images downloading but don't. Says it's done opens and outputs download images. Fix please.
Bug fixes for users having trouble with image downloader / missing images on some devices.
Bulk high-resolution image downloader has returned, but its use is OPTIONAL.
By default, images for plants will download and save locally the first time you access them, so that on subsequent views, no network connection will be required.
To use the app with no network coverage and have ALL the high-resolution images ready to view, open the menu and select "Downloads" after the app is installed.
