I'm so excited but... Hi. Thanks for this app I have been waiting for this for years! But there definitely should be a project for Southern Africa!!! I live in Cape Town which has one of the most bio diverse flora kingdoms of the world! I've seen from other reviews that I should just keep using the app until the project is created... How do I do that? Which project must I use to collect and identify fynbos which is endemic to the region? Thanks again really looking forward to having our project opened!
This app is extremely useful for isolating the kind of plant you are looking for if you know it by name. If you learn the method of photography and isolation of the flower, stem, bark, fruit, etc. it can also be very useful as well if there is an active community in your climate or area of residence. I believe that this app's method of citizen science is a great opportunity for children and adults alike to connect and learn about the world around us in a convenient and simple fashion. It is well designed for ease of use and is also attractive to the eye. The breadth of plants to identify or explore is vast and sprawling. I am very impressed overall. My single complaint is that there is not an option for foragers in the North American Continent. We Americans are relegated to pretend we are European, which might be misleading.
North America, Northeastern US I took a trip to Belize this year and had a picture of a flower I used to try out the app. App worked great, identified it quickly. I live in New England in the US and would love to have some of the territory over here covered. Hopefully that would happen sooner than later. Otherwise I do not know what else to do with the app.
Need more geographical regions Thank you for your useful app. I have a question though. Because I live in Vietnam, I do not know if I can take photos of plants here, i.e. in Asia-Pacific region, which is not available in your app. Please consider adding more geographical regions in your project.
Worked on a plant I didn't know I needed to take 2 different flower close up photo of the same plane and add them to the list so it work though.
A Must Have! This is another one of the few great(free) ways we can take advantage of technology and it's application through social media. I am thrilled to take part on contributing, learning from other plant enthusiast worldwide. Humans need to know more about plants not only for the obvious reasons (food, medicine, industrial etc) but also for it's cosmic evolutionary function on our existence. Kudos to the developer and I hope more people gets involved with the development & management of this app! - nebulagod503
