Grow your wisdom | Garden apps for mobile devices | Scoop.it

From the developer: "I created this app to give you information about your yards. I have been gardening nearly my entire life since my Grandfather gave me a package of tomato seeds and my Nana taught me about bearded iris. I want to combine my knowledge of horticulture with my love of weather to give you weekly information about what to do in your yard, that week.

If the weather is going to affect the garden, you will hear about it here first."

Win the "screen vs nature" battle...with an app

Win the "screen vs nature" battle...with an app | Garden apps for mobile devices | Scoop.it


The app, compatible with iOS devices, is free. And rather than being a typical game that takes your child’s mind captive in a virtual world, this is an “augmented reality” app — in other words it encourages kids to connect with their real world surroundings. It’s geared toward fairly young kids, but is clever in its use of the device’s built-in camera to connect real and virtual elements which ultimately drive kids imaginations toward the planet around them.

iOS apps for better gardening

iOS apps for better gardening | Garden apps for mobile devices | Scoop.it

Here in the northern hemisphere, it’s springtime, which for us means that it’s time to weed the back yard and plant the garden. If you’ve been sowing seeds and staking tomatoes for years, you probably know what to do, but many of us would like some guidance about what to plant, when to plant it, where to plant it, and when to expect a harvest.

Apps on a gardener's wish list

Apps on a gardener's wish list | Garden apps for mobile devices | Scoop.it

I’ll be the first to admit that there’s nothing organic or sustainable about apps for your mobile device. At first glance it may seem a little off-center that a website about living sustainably is featuring a Wish List of Android and iPhone apps, but please, hold the phone! Our take on sustainable living is a wee bit different than you might expect. In this recent post about the topic of sustainable living I mentioned that “the beauty of sustainable living is that we can (responsibly) enjoy the comforts of modern resources without worry for what we’ll do if or when they’re gone. Living sustainably does not mean utterly forsaking modern resources, but it does mean that we have a plan for living well should we need to live without them.”

Rainly helps users rediscover the weather

Rainly helps users rediscover the weather | Garden apps for mobile devices | Scoop.it

Rainly, the first app developed and released by Ninja Bottle, aims to help users rediscover weather through its simplified interface, clean graphics and pared-down functionality.

"What I found when creating this app was that users were craving a simplified weather-checking experience," says Ninja Bottle founder Sujan Patel. "While there are plenty of weather apps on the market already, industry leaders like Weather.com and WeatherBug complicate things by including more information than users want or need. My goal was to create an app that would allow people to see only the most useful weather data at a glance."

Smartphone apps and garden gadgets that could make your life easier

Smartphone apps and garden gadgets that could make your life easier | Garden apps for mobile devices | Scoop.it

Is gardening going digital?

Instead of asking Master Gardeners or the Iowa State Extension Service for growing advice, will we now turn to our smart phone garden apps? A slew of high-tech weapons could soon occupy home gardeners’ arsenals. From soil humidity sensors, to computer-generated growing tips and weather-detection devices, these electronic tools challenge the notion that plants need a human touch.

Typically, my smart phone sits on the back stoop or beside me in my yard cart as I work in the garden, but until now, I haven’t really considered using it to help me be a more informed gardener. Have you? The National Garden Bureau used crowd sourcing to identify popular, useful apps for smart phones. Here are some inexpensive garden apps that you might find helpful.

Rain with a brain: Get ready for "smart" sprinklers

Rain with a brain: Get ready for "smart" sprinklers | Garden apps for mobile devices | Scoop.it

Your normal garden sprinklers are like a band of soldiers fresh out of basic training: they’re good at taking orders and shooting where you tell them to, but they tend to waste a lot of ammo. We’re talking millions of gallons per year globally, just because they have bad aim.


Running with this soldier analogy, Droplet –the latest entry into the growing category of smart sprinklers– would be more like a Navy Seal sniper. Droplet works by selectively watering plants in your garden with precise streams of water, rather than spraying wildly and praying for a hit.

Create a visual journal of your home vegetable garden | Garden apps for mobile devices | Scoop.it

From Jeffery Martin, the developer of Veronica's Garden Tracker: "My wife, Veronica, tends a vegetable garden in our back yard. Several times, seeds she had planted sprouted, and she did not know what they were because her signs were missing. She drew obscure diagrams we could not figure out. She forgot if she had fertilized a row last week. She was not certain which tomato varietal was doing best in the Texas heat. This app is for her and gardeners like her."
