GroLog

We developed an iOS and Android application called “GroLog” for the Grodan company. Here’s the client’s description of the application:

The GroLog from Grodan is an app that assists growers in effectively managing their gardens. Keeping a detailed garden log is vitally important to a successful crop and with the GroLog it has never been easier to keep your garden dialed in!
Do you have several gardens you need to track at the same time? No problem – simply create a separate ‘grow’ for each of your gardens. The GroLog allows you to select exactly what data you would like to monitor in each grow, such as:
-Nutrient Solution: pH, Parts per Million (ppm), Electrical Conductivity, Temperature, Runoff levels, and Nutrient Dosages
-Room Conditions: Temperature (single readings or High/Low readings), Temperature Differential (DIF), Humidity (single readings or High/Low readings), CO2 (ppm), Plant Height
-Lighting settings
-Daily photos and notes

The GroLog also enables you to set a gardening schedule and receive reminders for tasks you need to complete in the garden. Simply plan out your watering, transplanting, seed starting, or any other tasks and your device will alert you when it’s time to get to work, even if you aren’t in the GroLog app at the time.

Other features include:
-Customizable graphs that show you your ideal levels
-Comprehensive reports (pdf’s or spreadsheets) that can be e-mailed or printed directly from the app
-Photo gallery

Note: Grodan neither obtains nor shares any information, data, or pictures entered in this application.

If you’re serious about your garden…you need the GroLog!

This is what the client said about our work:

“Symons Software did an incredible job with this project and far exceeded my expectations! Having never designed or developed a mobile app before, I didn’t really know what to expect or how to go about tackling this project. Fortunately, Ken was able to take initiative, offer up creative and effective solutions, and see the project through to its completion. Symons Software finished the project well before my deadline, were always extremely responsive and easy to work with, and their work was top-notch. I’m excited to work with Ken again soon and would highly recommend Symons Software!”

The client also asked us to create version 1.1 with a number of new features. This is what they said about our work on the new version:

“I knew after working with Symons Software on the original development and release of our first mobile app that I would want to continue to work with them, and they proved themselves once again with their work on this app update project. They continue to amaze me with their responsiveness, timeliness, and over quality of their work. I hope to continue to work with Symons Software and would highly recommend them to anyone else!”

The client again asked us to create another version of the GroLog app (v1.2) to update it to be consistent with the new iOS 7 design guidelines and with a number of new features. This is what they said about our work on the latest version:

“Yet again, we were thrilled with the overall efforts and outcome of Symons Software’s work on this project. Our company has worked with them on a number of projects now and we hope to continue our positive working relationship with them. They are always extremely responsive and eager to offer up new ideas or opinions and I would gladly recommend Symons Software to anyone.”
