Android App Beta is Available!

We've got a few more important updates to share this week..

First of all, the Android Version of Wildflowers of Detroit is finally in the Android store!  This one gave us a bit of headache getting out, hence it coming a full month behind the iPhone version.  If you are an Android user, keep in mind that this is a Beta release, so while it's working well over here, there could be unexpected bugs. If you run into bugs please don't hesitate to report them back to us, and we'll fix them right up.

Next, we're going to be transitioning our updates to our new email list.  We've made a lot of new friends, but not all backed the project originally so we need a forum that can include new folks and also allow the community to give feedback and discuss.  Sign up here:   We'll still update the kickstarter blog for the next few months, but if you want in on the real action get on the email list!

Also we've been noticing datapoints showing up from folks in the D.  Check out some nice pictures from user Kirsten of the Green Alley behind Motor City Brewery!  Let's keep those pictures flowing and fill out the database so we can have a nice look at change across the seasons at the end of the year.

For those interested in the open source part of this project, we now have a wiki up at that gives you more details and has links to our githubs.  We're definitely looking for more collaborates at this time - either in terms of new uses of the software or contributors to building features into the open source projects themselves.  If you AREN'T in Detroit but would like to be involved in fun projects that test the software itself, contact us directly and we can send you some files.
