The mobile app allows users to:
• diagnose herbicide injury with a diagnostic key that uses visual symptoms of the plant(s) to narrow down the possible herbicides
• search for specific herbicides or sites-of-actions (groups) if the user believes he/she knows what type of herbicide is responsible for damage
• take photos and e-mail them directly to Dr. Bradley for diagnostic help

This mobile app will be available on Apple and android devices. Most data will be stored on the phone so that relevant images and information are available to the end user at all times, regardless of cell reception.
