[prMac.com] North Creek, New York - MyNature Inc. today is excited to announce the release of the latest version of the MyNature Tree Guide, Version 1.1. With its newest version, MyNature hopes to build upon its success of the MyNature Tree Guide 1.0.
MyNature Tree Guide makes an educational experience fun in new way. Using a series of 15 questions the user answers as many as possible. The app will match the answers against its database for the tree that most closely resembles the answered questions. You can also use the questions themselves as a broader search by searching for leaf shape, fruit shape, number of needles as well as many other combinations of searchable features a tree may have. Once identified, the user can see photos and range maps or read more to learn about the tree and its growth cycle.
The app can also alert users to which trees they may find in any area in North America. Just enter the state or province initials into the app and hit submit, all the trees featured for that state will be listed. MyNature Trees also includes a place for making notes, which is particularly useful for those who enjoy recording their outdoor discoveries.
Some of the MyNature Tree Guide Features are:
* Searchable database containing over 200 trees found in North America
