    Not very much helpfull. Only real expert can used this app. The searh function help nothing unless you know the tree and the exact spellling of the name. Waist of money app.

    Disappointing. No structure to the program. I would have expected picture of tree followed (consistently) by pictures of bark,leaves,fruit, etc. If only all the pics were as in-focus as the Baobab on the cover
