Some of these are good, some not so good. Read the reviews and please comment if you have these and recommend any one of them. If they work they ought to be awesome on the iPad.  All new field guides should be made available for the iPad and Little, Brown and Company should think about  publishing Newcomb’s Wildflower Guide for the iPad with updated taxonomy. – Steve Young

    Is there any plant finder for iPads that uses the image of the plant to find it?

    Does anyone know if Newcomb’s Wildflower Guide will be available in digital form? Are they working on it?

    I can not get “Leafsnap” to connect to the server to upload a leaf image for Identification.

      Leafsnap used to work on my 3GS, but like RCurran said, it won’t upload leaf pics now on my 4S. Disappointed for sure.

      Wondering about the Appalachian trail one. No reviews in app store.

      Tree ID works well. Fairly extensive tree collection. Not totally convinced of the search results. Need to test this more.
