Or, you can search on "CNM WildFlowers" (and yes, it is helpful to use the quote marks to avoid the hundreds of other wildflower apps).

The CMM WildFlower app provides access to the entire content of the Wildflower web site, including its searchable database, even when your device has no access the Internet. It is perfect for exploring those flower-filled remote areas of Point Loma with no cell coverage. If your device has access to the Internet the on-line version will generally provide the most up to date source of this content.

A secondary advantage of the app is that all of the content resides on you device so the web pages generally load quicker than even the highest speed connection will allow. Further, the toolbar at the top of the screen provides immediate access to several of the site’s key functions.

The size of the app is its principal disadvantage. The app's content is significant as it includes over 300 plants showcased by almost 2500 photos. After you add the searchable database the storage burden on your device's internal memory is about 200MB. This large size also means it can take quite a while to download and install.

An easy way to experience the content of this app before deciding to do the big download is to visit the on-line version. Here is a direct link to the mobile online version.

There are a few subtle differences between the content of the on-line version and the app. The principal one is that the on-line version is generally the most up to date both in terms of content and features. Second, the app has the Action Bar at the top of the screen providing instant access to a few of the site's most important navigation pages. Because of this we have removed some of the unnecessary intra-site links from the app. For example, there is no need for a "Finder" link on any of the app's pages since the Finder is always available as a button on the toolbar.

This app and its sister "SMM Wildflowers" share many of the same plants and hence many of the same pictures. If you like SMM WildFlowers and are looking for plants at the Cabrillo National Monument that SMM WildFlowers does not contain then this is the app for you.
