I work in this field (no pun intended) and i've been looking out for something like this for plants, and trees. The one feature that i'm hoping for is photo ID. I want to either be able to take a photo, and have fellow tree spotters identify it for me, or a bit more far-fetched, have the app compare the photo to a database, or get me to fill a form and then identify what i'm looking at.

This looks excellent though, and I too would like to hear some opinions on it.

(GC = BUNGLEZ) (OF = farmersuitical) (Plus+ = bungle747) (Crystal = bunglez)

I review apps and games frequently in the UK app store, and here on the forums. If you want anything reviewed, just ask.

Thanks for your concern and support!This version collects 7251 Plants.
PlantPedia is one of the best apps in the App Store.
This is without a doubt the best encyclopedia app that I've ever downloaded - exactly what I needed.
Thanks!
