Don’t judge a tree by its bark; get to know our natural neighbors with TreeID.
Reached #12 in Canada in the Apple App Store!
TreeID was created in MEDL Mobile’s App Incubator. The idea was submitted by Jason Siniscalchi, a PhD in Forest Resource Science from Connecticut who had done his graduate studies work at West Virginia University in Forest Management.
He wanted a way to share his research and interest in tree identification with the world for all nature enthusiasts. This app will also be helpful for allergy sufferers who can now easily identify the plants they are allergic to.
TreeID allows the user to identify almost any tree in Northern America based on its:
• Scientific name
• Physical attributes (bark, leaf and fruit)
• Geographic location
FOREST SCIENCE MADE EASY
Because many of us using the app may not know the proper name for identifying particular types of leaves or fruit, the app will walk the user through the various methods of tree identification.
The app contains thousands of images, illustrations and notations. Yet with only a few clicks, the user should be able to identify any tree in the forest!
• Improved tree identification functionality
• More than a hundred new trees
• Fifty “Fall Foliage” trees with Autumn colors
PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE UPDATING
TreeID has an extensive database of trees built right into the app. This way, it’s available to you at all times so you don’t have to worry about having no reception while trying to identify a tree.
Since our tree database is so large, this update does take a little bit of time to download. We recommend that you start your update while accessing a reliable Internet connection, and make sure that you have roughly an hour of free time to stay connected before starting your download.
We are proud to call TreeID a Shiny MEDL Object. You can see all of them at www.medlmobile.com. And if you have an idea for an app that you’d like to see on the app store someday, visit www.appincubator.com.
