What a fantastic app!I was looking for an app to help me create a nice design for my front garden, and today I found it. I purchased this app this morning and I’ve created a detailed concept plan by tonight. Granted it doesn’t go so deep that you can specify individual real plants but as an overall guide this app is simply amazing. The Resource notes are very helpful and although very powerful the app is amazingly simple. I can’t recommend this enough!!.JC1DexluVersion: 3.2.2

Fun to useI’ve only hap this app for a few days and I’m having fun discovering what I can do with it. After hunting around the available items that can be placed on the plans and that things can be put on different levels. I find it a very useful planning tool..Nick the 2ndVersion: 3.2.2

Not worth the time or $$$Very disappointing ap. Issues: groups of items would not ungroup, some items would not select after moving, some work would not save. Very limited pallet of colours, shapes and tools..AnrkyAusBoyVersion: 3.1.6

Missing featureThis is a fabulous app for the price, but buyer beware, it’s missing something extremely important. The photo export is a low res joke. There is no PDF or high quality export. So there’s so actual way to print a decent copy. The images look pixelated and choppy. If it had a decent export it would easily be a 5 star app..IReview2010Version: 3.2.2
