What's New in Version 2.4.14
- Thousands of updates to the plant database
- Minor bug fixes
I purchased for the ability to add my own photos that the description claims it can do.
However, once downloaded, it tells me I have to purchase the the PRO version for that capability. I'm already into it for $5 so not wanting to waste that, sprung for the $7 pro version.
After that, the add photo is no longer ghosted in . . .so I attempted to add my photos. THEN it says I can only do that with the monthly storage plan at $10 a month!
Find a lot of the pictures missing.Good app for a starting point I just don't find it as informative as needed for a professional level.
