There he is again, you say to yourself. It’s a bug that you’ve seen in your vegetable garden before. These tiny black bugs – dozens of them, in fact – are gathering on your tomato leaves, with circumstantial evidence that they’ve just had a snack.
You make a mental note of what they look like. You don’t want to head inside to check – not now. You just got out here and your hands are getting dirty.
You do have your smartphone with you, though. You snap a picture and promise yourself that you’ll look it up later. You could look it up right now, but don’t want to bother searching around in Google. An app exclusively for identifying garden bugs would be pretty handy right now. After all, to find a control for a garden problem, you must first identify the pest.
Leafport.com is designed from the ground up to help you. It’s a gathering place just for the best garden apps. No more need to sort through non-related games or other distractions.
Right now we have a growing collection from a variety of categories – weeds, tools, weather, and more. Just want the free garden apps? Click on “Free” in the menu. Or use the search box to dig down into exactly what you need. No smartphone? We’ve got you covered. Simply search under the “Web apps” device and these apps will run in any browser.
We’ll be adding many more apps in the months to come, along with in-depth, real-world, get-your-hands-dirty garden app reviews. If you have a favorite app you use that you’d like to see in our database, or if you’re a developer, use our Contact form to get in touch with us.
