iPad Application - top 5 Grossing Lifestyle App

The Garden Planner.

Turning a passion into a startup.

The Garden Planner is a personal trainer iPad application for Australian vegetable gardeners.

Designed for iPad iOS 6.0 or later, the application debuted at number 5 within the Lifestyle category on the iTunes App Store and has consistently been featured since.

True Agency, together with Bliss Media, the client and their illustrator have all worked incredibly closely over the past year with tens of thousands of lines of code written to build Australia’s most sophisticated gardening app.

A Planner For All.

The Garden Planner app shows you what to plant, when and where, what to do today, what’s going to happen tomorrow, and when you will be harvesting food you grow yourself. The app guides you from seed to harvest, with localised plant guides and garden tasks.

Live Weather Feeds.

We integrated data sourced from the Bureau of Meteorology to provide localised weather feeds, including your local 4 day forecast. The app also allows you to integrate this with your task lists via sophisticated weather calculations and alerts.

On-Going Innovation.

The Garden Planner app is updated regularly with more plant cultivars and seasonal herbs, fruit and vegetables. We also developed an interactive mapping tool complemented with a plotting system that leverages the iPads camera, motion detection hardware and some clever mathematics.

A version also exists on the US store, the Veggie Planner contains updated content for the States.
