    Bonsai Album for PC - productivity app

    I've started a separate thread for my forthcoming app, since I thought it might get overlooked in the iOS app thread.

    Bonsai Album is an app to organize your collection of bonsai and pots. It's currently available on Mac and iOS, and now I'm busily working on a PC version.

    While you might be getting by with a spreadsheet or notebook, this app is a fully-fledged database, and it's a whole lot more interactive than anything else. It includes some additional features over and above the iOS version, like photo organization, printing, and enhanced search capabilities. You’ll also be able to transfer data between the PC and iOS versions over WiFi.

    I plan to localize the app into multiple languages, including English, Japanese, French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Portuguese. While I'd like support for all these languages in the first version, it may take longer than expected.

    You can find out more about the app, including the first screenshot, in today's blog post.

    The Windows PC version of Bonsai Album is almost complete! I'll be spending the next week or two localizing the app into various languages (Japanese, French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Portuguese) and tidying up a few odds and ends, then it'll be ready for Beta testing.

    If you're interested, or have some friends who are also interested in bonsai, you might want to sign-up to the Bonsai Album for PC mailing list on my site. Not only will you be notified the instant the app is released, but you can also have an early peek when the Beta test starts.
