I had the same problem with the latest update 6/3/2010 that the first reviewer had. Crashes on startup

As another reviewer mentioned, range maps are spotty and the text conversion obviously had problems. However, the most disappointing thing is that the species database seems pretty incomplete. For instance, there is no entry for any type of Lantana. And, it is very SLOW. I would like to see the search more similar to the printed Audubon Field Guide. You choose a growth style, then you choose a color, then you can browse. On the plus side, you can get a listing of plants found within a zip code. That is cool. Knowing what I know, I would probably still purchase the app.

A lot of potential but...
This guide includes many flowers and quite a bit of helpful information, but it is very awkward to use, especially in the field: 1. Performance is horrible. This is the slowest app I own (and I own a lot). Just going from screen to screen is slower than loading many huge 3D video games. The first screen where you see the other guides available is unnecessary and wastes time too. 2. You can't seem to select a region of the country and have the flowers restricted to that area by default (other than by going through a search first). It's a pain going through flowers from the west coast when you're looking for a flowers in the midwest, for example. 3. The search page has problems - for example, the keyboard frequently overlays the combo box for the shape which was very confusing at first. Also, it's way too easy to accidently select, deselect things when trying to scroll. 4. There doesn't seem to be an easy way to track what you've seen without registering and, it seems like, using wifi or having a phone connection. I just want a simple list kept with the app that I can export if I choose.

Audubon Wildflowers - A Field Guide to North American Wildflowers
Hopelessly inadequate, difficult to use key mechanism, scant images and information - and there is no way to sell it back. When I selected "Sample" I discovered I bought the book. Boo.

Add info and update
How about a way to add a plant, or to add info to one that is incomeplete. As in the Wild Hyacinth. If you search for Scilla or Squill the app says there is no info. It wold be nice to update so that it could be found. In this area it is known as Scilla or Blue-Bell.

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.
