QR codes at home in a public garden

QR codes at home in a public garden | Garden apps for mobile devices | Scoop.it

Unlike the audio guide system, which only delivers information and lacks automatic location tracking, the app allows for a greater degree of interactivity. With “Botany Hunt”, a treasure-hunt-style activity included in the app, you will no longer have to scour the area for the appropriate numbers to punch into the audio guide system.

Instead, the app provides you with a map that shows where the plants within an area are, so that you can find them more easily. Once you come across a plant, you can scan a QR code on a sign to reveal more information about it.

The gardening business "must learn to love apps"

The gardening business "must learn to love apps" | Garden apps for mobile devices | Scoop.it

Apps will continue to increase in number like websites in the 1990s and become a necessity rather than a luxury, according to app analyst Marcos Sanchez. Things like the Garden Gnome collectors app or the Ham Radio station selector app – there’s going to be a place for these small apps.

How to improve your (gardening) vocabulary

How to improve your (gardening) vocabulary | Garden apps for mobile devices | Scoop.it

A large lexicon helps open our minds, says memory coach Ed Cooke. Try these "Memrise" courses just for fun.


Via Vilma Bonilla
Mary Anne Lynch @leafport.com's insight:

It's not a garden app, but it can help you with common plant terms -- a bite-sized chunk at a time. Search for "plants," "garden," "birds," etc. in the search box on their site.

Vilma Bonilla's curator insight, November 12, 4:00 PM

My lexicon is better than yours! I can teach you but I'd have to charge. (Milkshake/ Kelis) I just had to say my version of that song lyric! I believe that having a large, native vocabulary is a gift that keeps on giving. ❤️ Do what you can to "step up your vocab!" Reading in various languages helped me immensely.
