The New Version is Here, The New Version is here!

Now I might be dating myself but one of my favourite movies growing up was The Jerk with Steve Martin, and one of the man memorable scenes in that movie was Navin (Martin) finally 'becoming someone' when his name shows up in the new phone book. He runs around shouting 'the new phone book is here! the new phone book is here!'

So now you know why I titled this entry as I did. Our new update (V1.1) is available and showing up on the updates tab of your iTunes account and on your iPhone. Do please download it -- there are lots of little fixes, a new Help menu, two new flowers and a bunch of optimisations, so things should work a bit more snappily!

I keep saying new updates are coming, so hopefully in a few weeks time you'll see more features and new plants as well.

happy gardening!

Can't plant in your own background?

An issue for some new users is that they apparently can't plant when using their own backgrounds. This is because you have to define the plantable area -- just make sure that Adam and Eve's feet are at diagonal corners from each other and you will be able to plant. If you put then on either the front or back corners, the plantable area will be zero - hence no planting...

Sorry if the instructions in the app don't make this clear -- we are fixing the instructions and will have the newest build up soon. Should have a few more plants too!

until then, happy planting!

After months of hard work, planning, revising, designing, dreaming and more hard work, we finally submitted Eden Garden Designer to Apple. We're hoping it gets cleared really quickly and can get released to the world.

We really hope that you like the product. There are a lot more features and plants on the way, so stay tuned and do let us know what you would like to see in the next iterations.

We love Eden and hope you do to.
