Could be a 5 star with a simple addition I'd love to use this app, but since the meaning for each term (What does a erose or a repand margin look like?) isn't stored in my brain I can't use it without an additional botanical glossary. Simple answer - add a botanical glossary to the app (I've never seen a print key without a glossary) linked from each term and with pictures (line drawing fine so not to bulk app up further). Then I'll love the app and return to it and use it frequently. For now, I'm still hunting for a good ID app.

Great app if you have a lot of patience Otherwise, you would be very frustrated by the speed, or the lack of. It is extremely slow and to find a plant can take many minutes.
