In addition to our software for PCs, we have now stepped into the realm of small portable devices, and are in the process of releasing wildflower apps for Android devices.  (See announcement to the left of this page.)  These apps are the most comprehensive wildflower apps anywhere, and go way beyond the usual field manual.  They  include 85 to 95 % of all the known non-grasslike flowering plants, both native and introduced, that grow wild in each state or region for which they are produced.  This means annuals, perennials, shrubs, and trees as well. All planned 28 apps are now available on the Google Play Store, and the Amazon store, covering all of 18 western and central US States and 4 Canadian Provinces.  All android devices can download from either store, except Kindle Fire devices can only use the Amazon store.

The apps are perfect for farmers, nature lovers, conservationists, hikers, botanists, students, teachers, wildflower enthusiasts, gardeners, nursery owners, or anyone curious about the natural world.  All photos are in the app, with no need for an outside connection.  They are build on our 20 years of experience creating interactive plant identification software.
