Replaced By Free Version!

:
For some strange reason you can now get a free version of this app that appears to be more up to date than the paid version because it supports rotation although this version seems to have an update button. The free version also has nicer icons. The authors need to figure out their business plan before spring. I would have given this three stars if this had not happened, and I'll come back and revise my rating when it has been fixed.

The app has potential because it is one of a few apps that allow you to "plant" seeds and take notes as they grow. The problem is that you are very limited in what you can do. It appears you cannot add your own plants, which is a shame because if the authors allowed you to enter a plant type and submit it to them for inclusion in the database they could grow their database very quickly. I'd also like to see a calendar showing planting and harvesting times. I'd like to see some way of modifying the planting and harvesting times in reference to zip code and manually. For example, we have snow on the ground from about November to April even though we are technically zone 5. Our zip is a patch of zone 5 surrounded by zone 4. With our snow cover, we can plant low growing species from zone 6 and 7. It would be nice if the notes could be date stamped for tracking, and really cool if there were some way to pull in weather reports and conditions when making notes. It's little things like these that will make the app more useful.
