    "I recently moved and am finally able to have a garden of my own so I went on the search for a good planning app. While this looked good on the outside, it was really just a slideshow of designs. It wasn't that useful for actually planning out my garden."

    "This is the ultimate plant ID app. I have been waiting for this one for years, and now it is here. Take a picture of a plant and presto...I get its name and all the information about it! I have tried it on every little bush and flower I can find , and no misses so far. Makes me feel like a botanist! It even ID'd some intrusive weeds in my front yard. This one is a must have for anybody who deals with plants. "
