Description

There is no lack of good manuals of botany in this country. There still seems place for an adequately illustrated book of convenient size for field use. The larger manuals, moreover, cover extensive regions and sometimes fail by reason of their….. Read more

Unless you're a dendrologist, this is a pretty lame app. It's really just a ported book thay you have to scroll thru chapter by chapter. It doesn't even contain a single photo of a tree, leaf, flower, bark, etc. The sparse drawings are crowded and crude, and don't even show the whole tree. THERE IS NO SEARCH FUNCTION???!!!! There are just multiple chapters based on the FAMILIES of trees, and then just endless scrolling to try to find a useful tidbit. There is no Index, and there is no way to jump to a particular tree. If you don't know the family a tree is in, say, like the Persimmon is in the Ebony Family, good luck trying to find it. And the tree ID key is hopelessly clunky. This "App" needs major work before it can be considered a useful addition to the iPhone.

This is just a book

Currently this is the only tree reference app for the iPhone with enough information to be adequate for the dendrologist, amateur or otherwise. So if you want tree reference material then this is your only choice.

However, you should know before you buy it that it's only the text of a book that's been copied onto the iPhone and bundled into an application icon. The information is extensive, but don't expect a navigable database or any search functions. The only app-like touch that differentiates it from the original book (of the same name) is that the table of contents is linked to the chapter headings. There are no other links, and no fields to select or enter anything other than personal notes. It's also a little slow, but it never crashes and there are no bugs that I can detect.

That said, I happened to be one of those iPhone-toting dendrology types whose been waiting for something, anything, to provide tree info on the iPhone. So I gladly plunked down my $7.99 and have no regrets. When competition finally develops in this category, though, I'm pretty sure this app will be instantly obsolete.

UPDATE on 8/1/09: A real tree id app has finally arrived on the scene!
