What's New in Version 1.1
- adjusted to the new iPad
- bug fixes
This app isn't all that bad. For $5.98 you can get a lot more trees and its not really a waste of money if you'll use it. From other reviews many people complain of limited specific distributions and one can only look at trees according to continent and this is true and I wish they would upgrade for this issue to where at least you can look at species native to states/provinces. Also, the app orders the trees in alphabetical order using common name, which is fine for people that do not need or care about scientific names, but they should upgrade for an option to sort species by scientific names. Also, they should expand with a larger tree database and also list diseases common to each species under the trees description with pictures showing those diseases if possible. Overall this app is more for just general use and not for real professional field work. However, this is something they could easily change with work and I hope they do.
Trees Pro or Not?
Contains more common trees; I bought the Tree Pak 1 which added about 105 trees, but excludes many trees in the US. We did a tree walk and found a tree with thorns along the branches. This app has nothing that would identify a Hawthorn, because it doesn't include Hawthorns.
You have to have above a basic knowledge of trees in order to use the selection tools. The app provides a primer, but it will require study for the novice user, so it doesn't work out of the box for everyone.
For the price, it's worth the investment if your just a casual user, but if you want or need details and easy selection parameters, this isn't going to be the right app. It leaves a lot to be desired.
I wanted a field guide to trees, but there's nothing good on the App Store or in e-book format out there. This app is only fair in my opinion.
I love it
Too many apps give only 1 picture but this gives a lot more. I right away bought the tree packs knowing it was worth about $6 and like to identify every tree. I find the regional thing other complain about unimportant in that many trees are not confined to certain areas and the trees characteristics more important. I wish there were more trees since it is slim on really being complete and hope for more and am willing to pay for their hard work.
