The only thing I like more than gardening and landscaping is technology. I like to say that I have a robotic green thumb [heh] because I love computers and shiny devices. When I read about these Android Garden Apps I just about soiled myself (pun 100% intended).
Here they are (courtesy of Android Authority):
Gardener combines task logging functionality and photo album generation so that you can keep track of the work done, as well as keep pictures and details of your precious greens and blooms. The timeline feature allows you to see the progress of your crops, as well as help you plan and prepare for future tasks such as pruning, fertilizing, even watering, by issuing reminders on due dates.
I am particularly interested in this app. I like to stay organized so I'd love to log all the plants I have to keep track of and little reminders to trim, feed, water, etc. I have yet to see an app lets you control your Orbit hose timer or Orbit sprinkler systems or any sprinkler/irrigation system. I would buy that app in a heartbeat. It would probably require a special timer but it would still be worth it.
This app looks stellar, especially for beginner gardeners, like myself. I will definitely be putting the "Nate" in "Gardenate" once I get this app. (My name is Nate by the way)
Expert advice on pest control, recommended varieties and boosting yields is available under the Crops and Techniques section. More information can be had through the Resources tab, which provides access to more gardening books and products. You’ll have access to a host of news updates through Mother Earth news, plus wonderful illustrations that will make browsing a more enjoyable experience.
Landscape and Garden Calculators
Measurements are available in the metric or English system. Need to keep records? It’s simple. Just email or text your data right from the app, or copy them to the clipboard. Plus, your GPS can help you calculate the distance between two points in just an instant[Awesome!]—how’s that for precision measurement?
I am a total geek and will use apps for just about everything. I like fitness and health apps, daily planner apps, budget apps, and so on! I plan on taking gardening to the next level once I get an Android device! I'll be sure to let you guys know which app or apps I like the best and will give thorough reviews of my own for each. Maybe I'll use my Father-in-Law's Evo to try out the free one's..
