AppDictions App Review
Lovers of all things in bloom usually don’t find much use for applications, However, developer Muli Mobile Limited is releasing an application for iDevices that will give the users a flower overload. FlowerPedia is a reference application that will give flower lovers a worthy app to have on their gadgets.
Featured in numerous reference materials, FlowerPedia is such a wonderful application that even those who have even the faintest interest in flowers should try it out.
Surround yourself in beauty with this application, as there are over 2800 photographs of the most stunning plants you will ever see. You can browse through the images at your own pace, or just sit back and relax as the slideshow takes you on a trip through blossoming flora. You will discover species of plants you never even knew; you will definitely come out with a newfound appreciation for all kinds of flowers.
If there are ones that catch your fancy, you can rate them (to boost the picture) or send a little beauty your family and friends’ way by emailing them the images from within the app. For those who are looking for a specific place or flower in particular, the nifty search engine is quick and efficient. Discover which types of flower can be found in your country.
Finally, FlowerPedia is not only for aesthetic purposes—it is also a great source for a good deal of information about your favorite plants. Find out more about each image, and let the application teach you about the flower’s name, family, features and edibility.
What’s great about this application is that you are allowed to access this whole database even without internet connection. This is rare, given the application’s encyclopedic range of information.
The interface is pleasant, properly representative of all things in bloom. The app itself is smooth and responsive, with high definition images that will almost make you feel like you’re viewing an actual, live flower.
