|bradlgt21||I would be interested and would upload pictures of my own plants. I don't think you will find a hard time getting new photos. Just like this site does there are some plants with no pictures just bios. Eventually someone can upload a photo to it if not at least you have the bio that is most important. Let me know if you make one I will be interested. Any interest in the android market? I own a android tablet not a apple tablet.|

|mistergreen||Yeah, a moderator would be needed. Give yourself the option to lock down a plant so people can't keep uploading infinitum. Once you have one or 2 photos for the plant. That's good.|

I am now thinking to make the app WITHOUT PHOTOS, just plant name/types, and then users can opt to contribute by sending photos to me via email etc. And i update the app as I get many photos.
Would that be a better idea?

|Big-Ken||Have you tried contacting the site admin or owner, I find it hard to believe that they would turn down someone wanting to make an app for free and give PT the credit as long as they could use the db|

|nerdariostomp||It'd be cool if the owners of the forum could export the data and make their own app. It'd be a semi easy way to make some extra cash and I know I'd pay even 3 to 5 bucks for a plant database that was updated and maintained. The hardest part would be trying to link an app to the existing content so that the process was simple and didn't involve extra work. I'd imagine that would involve some level of change in terms of how the data is entered currently but I don't do web design anymore or know anything about apps|

|Firemedic269||Take photos at your lfs with their permission. Ask people on this forum to donate/release their personal photos to you. You could send them a photo release form via email. Electronically sign it and return it.|

yeah it'd be awesome... problem is copyright of the plants photos...
i was planning to make it available for free (no monetizing). but there is no way
everyone who own the plant photos would allow it. hence it is not possible for me to do it without spending money.

|Firemedic269||I think this would be awesome! probably a ton of work. Heck even if you charge $0.99. who cares, it would be way worth it.|

Hi, sorry didn't notice you guys replied to my thread..
mistergreen, so do i have the permission to get all the data from
the "Plant Profiles" section and put it in an app and publish it?
of course, credits goes to PT.net... and whatever you guys wanna put
in the "credits" section can be input too (links, names, etc).

|mistergreen||An app would be fairly easy to make. It's the db that's hard. You'd need an extensive db like tpt's.|
