An elegant weather app for Android

An elegant weather app for Android | Garden apps for mobile devices | Scoop.it

Most weather apps are usually loaded with a ton of features, intrusive UI elements and complex settings. Solar, on the other hand, aims to remain as simple and minimal as possible; it’s a pretty straight-forward weather app with no complicated options. The UI looks absolutely stunning thanks to the gradient background that changes with the weather condition. The top portion of the gradient represents the weather while the bottom part indicates the temperature.

Free $5 Amazon Appstore credit and $30 worth of free apps

Free $5 Amazon Appstore credit and $30 worth of free apps | Garden apps for mobile devices | Scoop.it

Install the Amazon Appstore on your Android device - no Kindle Fire needed - for these two promotions.

Mary Anne Lynch @leafport.com's insight:

To get the Amazon Appstore on your Android device along with the two promos, follow these steps:

1. Go to http://www.amazon.com/getappstore and download the Amazon Appstore app. Since it's a 3rd-party app not available on Google Play, read the directions carefully to allow the download and install to occur.

2. Find and install the app from the Notifications area, then open it and sign in with your Amazon account.


3. Click the banner ad on top (see picture) to get to a list of apps to download (free Dec 25 only).


4. Once you download ANY app between Dec 24-28 (whether or not it was part of the promo in the above step), Amazon will apply a $5 promotional credit (expiring 3/31/2014) for use on a future Appstore purchase.

▶ Identify birds with Google Glass (video)

From USAToday: Mitch Waite, creator of iBird PRO, hopes birders will augment their field glasses with his new Glass Birds - a Google Glass app with its sights set on a mid-January release ($30 for iPhone; $10 for Android). Imagine: You see a bird perching in a tree. You tell Glass, "Identify bird." The app knows your location and eliminates possibilities based on range and habitat, then narrows attributes by shape, size, color, markings - all instantaneously, via voice commands. The interface projects images onto Glass' prism optics, making the screen appear 25 feet away, so it's not so in-your-face as you navigate through the puzzle.

Identify a plant's problem before you treat it with Purdue's garden apps

Identify a plant's problem before you treat it with Purdue's garden apps | Garden apps for mobile devices | Scoop.it

Happy New Year! In the spirit of the season, here’s a resolution for all of us. Identify a plant’s problem before you treat it. I can’t emphasize this enough. This means knowing the problem with a plant is frost damage and not an insect or disease would mean you wouldn’t have to do anything. Or, that the problem is a fungus and not a bug, which means you might need to use a fungicide rather than an insecticide.
