Description

A field guide you'll never leave at home! Wildflowers of the Western Plains is a field guide based on the book of the same name by Zoe Merriman Kirkpatrick. It includes nearly 250 photos of 186 species of flowering plants found in the plains from western Texas and eastern New Mexico, though Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, Nebraska, the Dakotas, Wyoming, Montana, and up into Canada. (See http://www.earthrover.org/Earthrover_Software/Wildflowers_of_the_Western_Plains.html for coverage map). The flowers, fruit, range, latin name, family, and common names are given for each plant, and many entries include recipes, Native American botanical practices, and observations by the author. Plant descriptions include links to a glossary of botanical terms, and illustrations for some families.

Plants can be browsed or searched for by many ways. A thumbnail browser lets you quickly scan hundreds of thumbnails organized by photo type, flower color, and family. A Search screen lets you find plants based on blooming period (including what's blooming now), habitat, plant type, and text. You can also browse plants by family, or by the alphabetical index containing entries for latin and common names. Plants can be bookmarked so you can easily return to them, and the application includes built-in help.

Excellent Botanical Reference for some of the most common wildflowers, herbs, and even a few cacti.

:
I just received a degree in Botany and I wanted this app for some of the field excursions I go on. I also thought it would be nice to have a digital wildflower guide for long backpacking trips so I dont have to carry a book, just my iPhone and solar charger. I also have some of the other nature guide apps like the birding app and this fits in with those nicely. The botanical descriptions are excellent and the botanical terms are set up so you can click on them and it opens the glossary page for that term. The wiki page opens inside the app and not in a seperate safari window which is a great feature. I haven't had any crashes yet after hours of playing with it on two different phones. There are nice photos and hopefully they keep updating the app with more photos. As a botanical illustrator I would love to see illustrations added. Thanks for an excellent app. Now all you have to do is keep adding new flowers and photos in the updates. $9.99 is not a bad price for this app since a basic wildflower ID card would set you back at least $8 and would have far less plants.

Disappointed for the price....

:
The application itself is nicely done. However... the application description states that it includes species from Colorado, but not until you buy the app does it clarify that the area included is limited to SE Colorado -- which has a low population density, and is unlikely to include a high number of interested iphone customers. Wish I had done more research before I forked over my $10. I think this application is less useful for those customers in the highly populated front range. I would like to see this app expanded to include the front range and even the Rockies. Perhaps an additional app in the mold of iBird? I would think the interest and potential for a higher number of customers would be an incentive.
