Flora ID Northwest has just announced two new Android apps for British Columbia and SW Canada wildflowers on the Google Play Store. They are pleased to make this available in a "field friendly format" that is the culmination of nearly 20 years producing interactive plant keys. The apps are titled "1900 BC Canada Wildflowers" and "2350 SW Canada Wildflowers." They are much more comprehensive than the usual wildflower book or app, with many more species, over 5800 and 7200 photos repectively, and sophisticated interactive keys with all the functionality of the keys in our PC programs (currently sold through the Native Plant Society of British Columbia). The apps include 91 and 92% respectively of all the native and naturalized, non-graminoid flowering species in British Columbia and in the 4 provinces of SW Canada. Species can be sorted by either common or scientific names, with synonyms listed in descriptions and additional features to assist in managing nomenclatural changes.

For more details, see their web site , or the web page on Google Play Store ( Scroll to the bottom to access other apps) They also have apps available on the store for most western and central states up to and including Kansas to Wisconsin.
