Worth the buy

Seriously, it surprised me how impossible it felt to get a simple zen garden app for on the go. I thought there would be a bunch but almost nothing. I decided to get this one to satisfy myself because I seriously couldn’t get raking sand out of my head and I have not been disappointed. I wish you could customize your sand color but otherwise it’s everything it needs to be. I enjoy calming myself with the creative gardening and if I find rocks or patterns I like I can save them so I don’t feel bad shaking them away or starting with a new one. This had potential to be partially done cheaply made with a sand texture and some stone jpgs, but there’s a 3D element to the sand and it’s lighting which makes this both quality and extremely satisfying to use. Every once in a while the sand clips but then you just re-rake it 🤷🏼‍♀️ No undo buttons in a real garden ;)

Love. But....needs greenery.

I used to have a different Zen Garden app that was amazing. It had the rocks and sand, but also, music and plants and other Zen objects. It also had the sound of the sand being raked. I play my own meditation music in the background when using this app, but I do miss the plants, leaves and other objects the other app had. But I do love the lighting options!!!! The other app didn’t have that!

Undo? Clear? HELLOOOO!! 👸🏻♿️

This app was gr8 @ 1 time. Like, when it first came out. Since then they’ve tried (& IMO failed) 2 upd8 it. STILL no “clear” or “undo” button. Yep. 2018 & NO “undo”. Where it sez “add rock” u will c a plus & minus sign beside both the size & polish 4 your rock, BUT NO ACTUAL ROCKS 2 SELECT! U just tap the screen & hope 4 the best. I’m so sorry guys. I love the color selection 4 the sand, the tool selection, & even the choices of light. It ends there tho & feels unfinished. So. I will FINISH it by DELETING THIS ONCE FUN APP. 🤬 U describe the upd8 as having “undo” & “save garden”. REALLY?!?!!! WHERE?!?!?!

Hi there! The current update should have undo and clear buttons to the left of the "Add Rock" button... maybe a fresh install could fix that. Which device are you using?

(Edit: some of the older devices are incompatible with the latest updates)
