Can't use in the field as I can't select the "bulk image downloader" in the latest app revision on my LG phone with Android version 4.4 (kitkat). Using the menu as instructed only provides me with a search box and selection of plants by region or contributing author, but not the "my notes", "general info about foraging", "glossary", or "settings" features. There appears to be no way to scroll down on the menu to get to the "download" selection so I can save all the images to my SD card and see them when WiFi and 3D connections aren't available. I've already sent the developer several emails on this issue with no response so far. Otherwise, good app with good information. Will upgrade my rating when/if this issue is resolved for me.
Very good app Very nice app. Major improvement over the previous app. I really like the photos of the plants, really helpful with identification. Only reason keeping this from being a 5 star app is that additional photos require data or WiFi connection which may pose a problem if camping or in remote areas. Edit: Realized I can download all the photos or preload the app with photos of the plants I am interested in looking for. Changed to 5 stars!
Just got a new tablet which is running Android 5.1.1. Better, but still having some issues. Was able to download all the images without a hitch. However, when I go offline and click on an entry, I still get an initial blank screen with a message which reads "Failed to retrieve image". Luckily, when I swipe the screen, all the other images seem to be there. Not sure why the initial one is not loading. The images are of great quality and I really appreciate being able to zoom in on them which one can't do with many similar apps. Because of this, have upgraded my rating to 4 stars. It really is a great app. Will upgrade to 5 stars when you can resolve this issue and when you can get it working on my other tablets. Thanks.
Interesting App This has been a very useful app when you are stuck identifying a plant. I have used it many times. It is easy to use and might even save someone's life if they have no other food sources. The variety of plants shown is amazing.
Greatest app ever. Get it now! I just updated from the free version and I am so happy that I did. It has already helped me to avoid the wrong plants and mushrooms in my first use. Thanks again!
Great app with plenty of info, though there are other common edibles in my area that seem to be missing however. Also receiving the same issue that Ian T received in regards to offline images even following an attempt to download them all. "Failed to Receive Image" when I initially selecting a plant, however swiping right to show more descriptive photos works, the primary display picture does not.
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.
