Naturetale is a mobile phone app that provides more interest and enjoyment from walking in the UK countryside. It enables users to identify wild flowers, berries and soft fruit - and then provides information about them, what they can tell you about the countryside, historical uses by humans, literary references and more. Up to fifteen different types of information can be provided.
Naturetale has been developed for people who are interested to know more about plants and the countryside, but do not want to be plant spotting experts. As with any identification and information source it requires users to look closely at the colour, shape, and (sometimes) height or leaves of flowers and berries.
Naturetale covers the more widespread, distinct and interesting flowers and berries. For simplicity it combines groups of plants that are very similar, but provides references to more detailed identification guides. If you would like to know if a flower is, say, a violet, or a member of the cow parsley family, then this app is for you.
Naturetale is available for both Apple and Android phones and tablets.

Naturetale is about more than just developing and selling apps. The supporting flowers page tells what we are doing to make a difference for our wildlife.
