Can't wait until this app is updated
This app definately needs updating. Not only the maps but if you put a search in by color it doesn even bring up all flowers of that color. Hope Green Mtn finishes this app soon. I think I would have waited to purchase if I knew it was this unfinished.

Where's The Latin?
I'm not going to build a poop sandwich here by saying something nice first. Instead I'm going to get to the point. Application is fairly stable and persistent crashing can usually be remedied by restarting your device entirely. Note that the application is not rock solid and crashes at least once a day on me. I feel Audubon and Green Mountain are certainly on the right track with this but there are several aspects that still need to be reworked. The most obvious being the inability to use word search to look up entries by Latin and formal designation. Really? Second being the longer latin names are cut off in the entries home page with no way to expand or view the rest of the entry, therefore making that information essentially unavailable and requiring a secondary resource. Something that is wonderful but not quite excellent is the ability to sync online with audubonguides.com. This feature REALLY opens some doors to extensive organization and customization. Ten stars for that. What I don't like is a little hard to explain. I'll give it a shot below: For example - if you own the Mammal, Wild Flower and Tree Guide - and want to create a lifelist called 'natural history of my hometown'. No problem. The problem occurs when you try to reference the list on your ipod touch and find that you have to launch the mammal application to view the mammals on your list, the tree application to view the trees and the flower application to see the flowers. You cannot get them all under one application. That being said Audubon does offer a combined app for ~$40.00 that should allow this. What is not available is a credit system for someone like me who bought the apps separately and would now like to combine them. I have written an email to Green Mountain about this. We'll see how it goes. Overall - if you are doing this simply for hobby or are okay with doodling around these inconveniences then cough up the ten dollars and enjoy. Otherwise steer clear for a while and let the application evolve a little further, particularly in its search functions and actual field usefulness. Joy of an app overall.

Potential search problem
I really like the guide. However, if you do a search and hit the space bar to let the iphone complete your word, it will give you zero results. Problem: hitting the space bar to complete the word adds a space to the end of the word. The search is looking, not for your word, but for the word followed by a space. Solution: be sure you delete the space at the end of the word, or completely type it in so there is no space. I've reported this to the developers, and hope they'll correct it. Chances are all the Audobon apps have the same problem.

Mobility is terrific for a nature photographer
This app, along with the other Audubon apps, is VERY HELPFUL as it means I can carry all the Audubon info with me as I travel. There is a ton of info and I especially like the images.

Audubon guide to wildflowers
Delighted to discover this comprehensive wildflower resource. Photographs are spectacular for plant identification while hiking. ( Dwelley's Maine books are too heavy for the backpack!) Particularly helpful are "Discussion" & "Warning" content. I'd love to have USDA Plant Hardiness Zones - every plant nursery & gardener would find this ap truly indispensable! -- Rosa Rugosa.

This is great!
So many times, I've spotted an intriguing wildflower and wish I knew more about it. I never wanted to lug a field guide around me. This app fits the bill perfectly. It even lets me store any flower pics I snap with the phone. A great, well-made app!
