    downloaded pictures for 2 hours for offline use would not work! Large database. Enough information for buying. Good filters for searching. Emails are ignored. Don't Buy!

    Update- No response to my problem via email, so, or addressed here so gave one star and deleted. Can't figure out how to edit an entry on "My Plants" feature. I like it except for this and lack of response from developer. Will up rating when/if my issue is resolved.
  • When you upgrade phone, all info is lost

    Unbelievably, you can't log in to your account from a new device and retrieve your notes, projects, photos. I used this religiously for a year, upgraded my phone, and everything's irretrievable. There's a big market for a reliable gardening app designed similarly to this app, but this app isn't it.
  • Wasted $15

    Bought this because it said you could upload your pix and take notes on them. That feature is only in the pro version which costs another $5. I bought it and still don't see how I can upload them. The catalog doesn't include my plants so I have to enter all the info. Been working with this for 30 mins and I think I will give up.
  • Plant photos are wrong!

    I have found several flower images in this app that are completely wrong! Example- "bachelor button"(coneflower) showed image of a daffodil!
  • Needs a little work but still like it a lot

    I'm a professional gardener and enjoy this app a lot. There are some glitches that need to be fixed, like repeat plants and it would be nice to have more detailed info on a lot of them. But I upgraded and love that I can add my own plants, have projects to save my ideas to. I wish the designers would talk to gardeners and landscapers to perfect this but all in all its a good app.
  • Extremely limited selection for the bloated price

    I bought this hoping it would provide me information on plants. Unfortunately it was extremely limited on its plants. Not once did I see one plant that I was looking for in this app's catalog. Not once! I ended up going on line and to find my plants! Hardly worth the $10 for such a useless catalog. Maybe you have to upgrade to get a fuller catalog but if so, that's unacceptable for such an expensive app! Heck, For $20-30 what you pay here you could just go down to the bookstore and buy a regional gardening book and it would be much more informative and with ALL the plants you'd want to look up so why waste money and Disc space for this? I'll definitely be asking for a refund once I get home to my Mac.
  • False Advertising.

    It's unbelievable that the app developer states that there are 26,000 plants listed on the iPhone app spread over 17 categories. I personally tallied the total number of plants listed on this app in less than 10 minutes. Bulbs-22 listings, cacti-1 listing, evergreens-49 listings, ferns-28, flowering trees-9, grass-11, ground over -20, herbs-792, houseplants-2, palms-0, perineal -148, roses-6, shrubs-129, trees-17, vegetable,fruit,berries-10, water plants-1. Also note that while this iPhone app will work on your iPad you will have to pay another $10 to have it fully functional. The only thing green this person is interested in is your money!
