Description

SMMPlants is a field guide to wildflowers and other plants of the Santa Monica Mountains and nearby areas of Southern California. If you've ever found yourself staring at an unknown flower and wishing you'd remembered to bring your field guide, this is the guide for youhow often do you forget to bring your iPod or iPhone in the car?

SMMPlants features over 400 color photos for 310 plant species. You can scroll through full-sized photos, or browse thumbnails for photos organized by photo type (flower, leaf, or fruit), flower color, family, and genus.

Descriptions for each plant include leaf and flower features for identification, latin and common names for the plant, blooming period, and plant communities in which the plant is found.

A Search menu lets you search for text, specify the type of plant type (such as tree, shrub, or herb) and plant community (such as Chaparral or Coastal sage scrub), and select the blooming periodincluding what's blooming right now.

Since amateur botany buffs and professionals alike can often make a good guess at the family of an unknown plant, you can also browse plant photos and descriptions by family. For quickly looking up a species, genus, or family by name, there's an alphabetic index with common and scientific names for all species and families.

SMMPlants includes built-in help and a glossary that is accessible from the main screen and from each plant description page.

Also see our app California Wildflowers, which covers 400 species throughout the state, with more species to be added in future updates.

4/5 stars

we need more of this

:
It is great to have a field guide that doesn't take up more room in my pack (and fits in my pocket!). The content is great, but I agree with an earlier reviewer that there are not enough photos. I'd like to have more photos of the plant (e.g. an overall view, the leaf, the seed) and especially be able to add my own photos (maybe even plants?). The recent addition of links to Jepson and CalPhotos is awesome and helps supplement the few areas where the app is lacking. It is well worth the cost and I hope that Earthrover releases more field guide apps in the future. I would easily upgrade this to a five star app if it had the ability to add your own photos.

3/5 stars

Good Start

:
Appreciate the habitat and blooming periods, but it would be nice to have some type of dichotomous key after you choose the plant type.

3/5 stars

great start

:
This is a very well executed app in need of more flowers. I waited awhile before buying this at $10 but decided to take the plunge. User Interface is great but when I compare the photos to my own photos from hikes it was disappointing to find I have a more complete collection than the app. Most of the photos serve the identification purpose well, but some need a better "view". In no way do I regret purchasing SMMPlants, I just hope some updates with additional species are in the works.
