I’ve got a version 2 of iPlant, will be for the iPad too and Android. Coming soon, will be the ability to upload photos, rate photos, submit new plans, edit existing plants. It should be a pretty big upgrade for everybody, and will contribute to a much larger community of participants and information. Should be out and ready by the end of August. Update Aug 11, both the new iPlant and Android version are about 80% completed. Update May 12: Clearly I’ve missed this deliverable. I outsourced some of it, and wasn’t able to get that finished, so its back to the drawing board, but it won’t take as long. I really do want to get this updated, and have had many requests to do so, it will happen.
Im looking to license a larger and much more complete plant database.. as a part of this expansion, looking to develop an iPad app, and Android application too. Stay tuned.
iPlant 1.9 is out. I’ve removed the syncing ability in previous versions, it was just too buggy and unreliable. This makes the latest version a bit large, but at least the available content is now there. I’ve added a few more images and updated the data a bit with feedback and other research. In 2.0, I hope to get many more photos. An Android version will be forthcoming, and also an iPad version. Ideally I’d like to get a large database to upload into this, but that’s rather expensive, so still looking for a new source.
I’ve submitted an update to iPlant, its version 1.8. This version has the entire database updates an more photos concurrent with the latest sync. Its over the iTunes 10 meg limit, so you’ll need a wifi connection to download, or download via iTunes and sync. I’ve added icon badges when you launch the app, so you’ll know if there are updates to sync. Please submit questions or problems any feedback is appreciated.
