The first reactions to Inner Garden just started to appear around the web. AppEggs.com chose Inner Garden as the Editor’s Pick in its Best Ten Android Apps list.  The review is here.

We also got nice first look from AndroidPipe, and another review from PlayAndroid. GetAndroidStuff listed us in the ten Android apps of the week selection. Thanks everyone for supporting us!

Inner Garden has been published worldwide

We are happy to announce that Inner Garden is now available everywhere! Happy gardening everyone!

The launch press release on PRWeb UK is here.

Inner Garden is available in the United Kingdom and Czech Republic

October 28th is not only the Czech Independence Day but also the day on which we first presented Inner Garden to the public. After 20+ months of full-time work, we decided that although the app is not finished (and probably will never be!), it is ready.

Cautious as usual, we first released only in two countries – Czech Republic and United Kingdom. We are hoping to get a bunch of instals this week from those two countries to see if the app does well on a range of Android devices and fix any bugs that might appear. The worldwide release will follow hopefully in a couple of days.

If you happen to be in one of those countries and have an Android phone in your pocket – try it out and let us know what you think! It’s free! Just click the badge below.

Tips & Tricks: Light Forests and Groves

The trees most suitable for groves are the ones with a bare trunk, such as the forest oak and forest pine – they allow you to see further into the forest. You can either place them in such a way so that the shade under them is continuous, or you can leave some room for sunspots in between. more..
