Hmmm, interesting Kev. Can't see it telling the subtle differences between many plants though, and people will believe whatever it throws up to be gospel. Ignorance is bliss I suppose......I'll get it for my phone though (if it's a free one!).

Hmm, would be seriously concerned about the accuracy of anything that relied on user uploaded data as its basis.

Simple, a forum is an area for discussion, thoughts, ideas, opinions, a database is used as a source of facts.

I tried it on the weekend
Waste of time.
Tested on a few common and a few rare plants.
In most cases didn't even get the genus correct :shock:
Most were completely wrong

Bill,
and discussions are too about facts, as anything else is just waffle, which is not welcome here.

I seemed just funny to me, that you rejected user content, whilst posting on a forum, that lives off this.

As for the App, I think that 4000 included sp. aren't enough to be useful anyway.
