InfiniteNIL Software has released Landscaper’s Companion for Mac OS X 10.7 (“Lion”) and costs US$9.99. It’s available worldwide through the Mac App Store in the Reference or Lifestyle category.
Landscaper’s Companion was first introduced as an iOS app by Stevenson Software. Stevenson Software commissioned infiniteNIL to bring the app to the Mac. The Mac app has all the same features as the iOS version, such as a database of over 8,500 plants and over 9,000 images.
Plants can be browsed by 16 categories, marked as favorites, and searched for based on their name, color, type, sun, water, grow rate, size, and other characteristics. Most plants include cultivation information, common uses, and potential problems they may have. Users can add their own notes and images to each plant. The Mac version also takes advantage of the larger screen real estate and features of Mac OS X 10.7 (“Lion”), such as full-screen mode, and gestures for scrolling through images.
