Montana Grasses

High Country Apps, LLC
The College of Agriculture at Montana State University and High Country Apps have partnered to produce the new Montana Grasses identification app for smart phones and tablets. The app provides images, species descriptions, range maps, and other information for more than 100 grasses and grass-like plants inhabiting the agricultural landscapes in Montana and adjacent states and provinces. Designed for beginners and experts alike, Montana Grasses will appeal to anyone who wants to identify grasses and learn more about them. The app does not need an Internet connection to run, so you can use it no matter where your wanderings take you.Users can browse the species list or search for specific plants by common or scientific name. In addition, the app’s identification feature provides 13 sets of characteristics to help define your search, including: overall appearance, seed head, blade width, auricle, habitat, elevation, and origin (native or introduced). Select the characteristics you know -- a click of a button returns a list of thumbnail images and species that match your search. Montana Grasses includes a “favorites” feature that allows users to select a custom list of species for future reference and sharing via email and social networks. Lastly, detailed information on grass identification basics, sources and resources, as well as a glossary of botanical terms and diagrams of grass anatomy are provided. The app will be updated on a regular basis to add new species and other content, and available to all users at no additional charge. A portion of revenues from the app will be dedicated by High Country Apps to support plant conservation in Montana.The app is a joint development of the College of Agriculture at Montana State University and High Country Apps of Bozeman, MT. Montana State University, the State's land-grant institution, educates students, creates knowledge and art, and serves communities by integrating learning, discovery, and engagement. Expertise on the grass family was provided during the development of this app by faculty and staff in the Land Resources and Environmental Sciences Department and the Plant Sciences and Plant Pathology Department, which are two of the primary Departments dedicated to research on plants, including crop development, native plant diversity, and invasive plant ecology and management.

Garden Plants Database on the App Store on iTunes

Darren Gates

Description

A glossary of common garden plants, herbs, shrubs, and grasses. Please note that this database lists plants mainly by their Latin taxonomy name, along with a description of the plant. Over 1000 common garden plants (USA-specific) are included in this dataset.

*** This app does not include images of the plants in question! ***

A subset of the overall feature list for this application includes:

- Advanced search for all plants. The top 100 terms are returned by the search engine. If you need a more finely-tuned search, simply add more terms into the search field.

- Add/edit/remove plants, and access terms you added using My Plants. If you find a plant that needs revision or clarification, you can edit it using your on-screen keypad.

- You can rate plants on a 5-star system. Once rated, the plant is much easier to access later since you can just tap on the "Top Rated" button in the "More" section at the bottom of the screen.

- Mark your favorite plants, and view them in the Favorites area. This is similar to the "Top Rated" feature, but with more direct access since the button is always-visible at the bottom of the screen.

- E-mail any real estate term to a friend, and CC or BCC it, too.

- Rename categories and add/remove categories. We've given you a starting point to help you categorize and organize your terms, but you can always add more, or change the default categorization. Also, you can put any term in up to 2 categories, if desired.

- "View All" plants for access to every item in the database. This can take a few seconds to load since there are a LOT of plants in this app.

- Use a simple "finger swipe" gesture to move from one term to another, or use the previous/next buttons. Navigating this plants database has never been easier!

- Insert a textual comment about the plant. For example, you may want to keep track of where you last heard the plant, or some notes about the context in which the plant should be used.

- The history feature keeps a log of what you've seen, so you can always go back to re-read about that term you remembered from days ago.

- A Settings screen allows you to change the relative font sizes and the size of the history table.

Rain Garden

University of Connecticut
The University of Connecticut Center for Land Use Education and Research in UConn’s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources and the Connecticut Sea Grant Program developed this App as a resource for homeowners, landscapers, contractors, and others that guides you through the process of designing, installing, and maintain a rain garden. Rain gardens are depressions in the ground that collect rainwater from roofs, driveways, parking areas, or other hard surfaces and use plants to cleanse pollutants from that runoff.The App includes Basic information about what rain gardens are and how they work; guidance on how to design and install them properly; and tips on maintaining your garden. The app includes several short video tutorials to help users with each step of the process.Through the App’s Plant Selector tool users can select native, noninvasive plants and their cultivars that are known to work well in rain gardens. Plants can be selected based on plant type, sun exposure, and bloom color. There are also tools for determining rain garden size based on the size of the area draining to it, a soil drainage map to help determine if a rain garden makes sense in a particular area, and a simple cost calculator to gauge cost. Users can also store information in the App about the Rain Gardens they have installed and set maintenance reminders for multiple gardens. It is currently geared primarily toward users in CT, so the plant catalog and mapping tools are specific to that area. However, the general information and tips are applicable anywhere. We hope to have a nationally applicable version available soon.
