Free Wildflower Apps
Apps are now available for most states, some Canadian provinces and Northern Mexico. These Apps use the
WildflowerSearch database. The Apps are self contained and do not use the internet.
These apps are large and require WiFi for installation. In some cases there are similar
apps that you must pay for. They may be easier to find. But the Wildflower Search apps
may be more to your liking.
Here are the Links to the store.

I update the apps about once a year.
The process of updating them takes from one to two months.
The apps were last updated in January and February of 2023. Many scientific names were updated.
More plant photos and plant descriptions were added. Links to external website now start
the standard browser. The Illinois Wildflower plant descriptions gained photos.
Some bugs were fixed.
Android complains that the apps are too large. I think the Android folks are
living in the 1970's. For people in New Jersey, New York and New Mexico the
Android folks tell me that I can not use the word "New" in the title of the app.
Android will not let me name an app "Great Smoky Mountains Wildflowers" because
that uses too many characters. Again, living in the 1970's and using punched
cards. Neither Android or Apple make it easy to build apps for smartphones or
tablets but Android is the best at making dumb rules.
