** Note: This is the free Lite version of Bonsai Album. The Lite version is almost identical to the full version, but only allows you to store up to 3 bonsai, 3 pots, and 3 log entries with 3 photos each. It also includes database backup and export over WiFi (but not restore/import), allowing easy upgrade to the full version. The full version has no such limitations. **

Ratings and Reviews



This is a wonderful way to keep my Bonsai catalogued with detail and photos. Whether you want to keep just a little data or a lot of data per tree and pot, the fields are there for you. I especially love adding photos so I can go back and see (and show off!) the progress I have made with my trees. And with AirDrop, I can easily transfer the database between my iPad and iPhone so they both are up to date.

I started with this Lite Version, then quickly purchased the full version so I could add more trees. You can even transfer your database from the Lite Version to the full version without losing the data you have entered.

I love it when the developer gives an opportunity to try an app before purchasing it. Wish more developers would.

Useful and organized


I'm a beginner at bonsai and already I know this will be an important tool for me. One suggestion that I would make would be a place to record new bonsai tools and tool sets. For now I just used a spot in the bonsai list.

Good but limited


This is a nice app, but is very limited. 3 trees just doesn't cut it with most people who want to use this app for what it's meant to be. The paid version is way too much money, but would be very helpful if it were more reasonably priced.
