The Android apps we currently produce are comprehensive professional apps that include 99+% of the vascular plants growing wild for each region, whether native or introduced. They are temporarily unavailable due to changes we are making, and we are working to have them available through our our facility as soon as possible.
The features listed below apply to all our Android apps, and also all our Windows software (which is available by contacting us directly.)
Tips and Features:
- Select in any order, plant characteristics from over 50 menus
- Characteristics are defined, with detailed scientific illustrations
- The app suggests lists of characteristics to use based on ease of use, effectiveness, and remaining species
- With each selection, the list of possible plants shrinks, often narrowing to one species after adding about 3 to 6 characteristics
- Confirm identifications by comparing with photos, drawings, and/or descriptions
- Plant reference lists are provided for each species, from 130 botanical references books and publication sets, including page numbers from those books.
- Access to photos and descriptive data for each species
- Alphabetize the species list by either common or scientific name, or search for a plant by entering a name or string of letters
- No need for WiFi, power, nor cell towers – it’s all in the app
- Documentation and program help available within the app
COMPREHENSIVE ANDROID PRO APPS (ALL VASCULAR PLANTS)
The Comprehensive ‘pro’ apps are no longer available on both Google Play and Amazon. They will be available from us directly as soon as possible. See our home page for details.
They identify 99+% of the vascular plants known to grow wild in each state, province and region for which we produce, and are intended to meet the requirements of professional botanists, but are easily used by anyone interested in plants. This means all flowering plants, grass-like plants, spore-bearing plants (like ferns), and conifers, whether the plants are native or naturalized. These apps include all the same plants and functionality in our interactive PC Windows software.
