Leaves a lot to be desired
While the one word meanings are nice, I don't see any in depth descriptions (though I may have just not found them yet). Also, navigation is, in a word, frustrating. First, while the flowers are organized alphabetically, there is no quick, "jump-to" feature in the menu. It's all scrolling through about 100 flower names, hoping the one you're looking for is there. Not to mention, when you click on a flower, then go back to browsing, you start all the way back at the top. This app has a lot of potential, and it would be perfect for when you need to grab some flowers quickly, but don't know what kind to get. It just needs better navigation and/or browsing. I acknowledge, however, that this app is free, and free apps don't always have a lot of wonderful bells and whistles on them. Still, the ability to find your way around an app is key, and Flowers Meaning just lacks heavily in that department.
Good concept, poor execution
Like all the other reviews said, the app would not open any of the flower files. Usually when I see reviews saying that an app didn't work, I ignore them and get it anyway because the apps always work for me. Well... This o e didn't. Sadly, there is only one other app that performs this function. It isn't free but I would get it... If it had pictures. So for now, there are no apps for floral symbolism that meet my satisfaction... And I'm usually very easy to satisfy. What a disappointment.
Ad blocks the bottom of long descriptions and can't pull up the description, every time I go back it restarts back at the top and not where I left off, can't zoom into the pictures and should provide more pictures of the same flower, and should allow swiping to go to next/previous flower.
