I saw this the other day and was wondering the same thing. The only reason I didn't get it was because it said it was still under development and did not have a lot of orchids listed yet.

Seeing this post makes me pine for an iphone even more!!!! I will definitely be buying this when I finally get one--sure, it might be a little basic at first, but the more people that purchase it, the more they will upgrade the info to meet demand.

I would like an iPhone as well....I have read rumor that the iPhone 5 will be released late this year. I'm going to hold out for the iPhone 5 release. I have looked at some of the other smartphones on the market, is this application specific to the iPhone?

Right now, yes, because it is an Apple app. Which means you could get it if you had an ipad (or maybe a Mac, I'm not sure how that works).

I haven't heard anything about iphone 5, but that makes me feel like holding out too. Then again, my mom bought the iphone 3 last year because it was so much cheaper than 4 and it still works perfectly. Right now we have Verizon and I'm not sure if I want to keep them, the phones that we get through them are junk :P

If you google the iPhone 5 you will find stuff on it. I have verizon too, so far I like their phones better then Sprint. Where I live, Verizon has the best coverage. I know different carriers get better coverage in different areas.

Default an alternative to an app is...

It's not an app and certainly isn't as easy as carrying it around on your iphone or ipad, but I use Microsoft OneNote. It's pretty versatile. I keep all of my records of my plants, orchids or otherwise, as well as notebooks for my marine aquarium, project of home improvement and so on-- it holds a ton of info and you can sync it with SkyDrive (think of google docs) and share it/back it up with whomever you want... (or is it whoever?).

No, it doesn't contain a database etc but you can add your own photos as much as you'd like-- even drag and drop files into it. I love it!

I find it pretty useful -- the most recent update allowed the uploading of your orchids. It keeps me organized with my "records".

...Forgot to mention...every app you download is "under development" -- This developer was pretty responsive to the user needs...almost everyone commented that it was lame you could not upload your own images .....less than two weeks they released an update with an image uploader. Apps are only as good as the people/companies that develop them AND if users provide feedback to make it better!
