Description

This app is a database of images from the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), covering topics including: Animals, Crops, Education, Field research, Fruits and Vegetables, Illustrations, Insects, Lab research, and Plants. Many historical photos are included in this app. These come straight from the USDA image archives, and are public domain (free for commercial and non-commercial use).

The United States Department of Agriculture (informally the Agriculture Department or USDA) is the United States federal executive department responsible for developing and executing U.S. federal government policy on farming, agriculture, and food. It aims to meet the needs of farmers and ranchers, promote agricultural trade and production, work to assure food safety, protect natural resources, foster rural communities and end hunger in the United States and abroad.

Please note that there is no detailed information on the USDA, or on USDA topics, in this app. It's just a gallery of images with very brief descriptions.

A subset of the overall feature list for this application includes:

- Advanced search for all images. The top 150 images are returned by the search engine. If you need a more finely-tuned search, simply add more terms into the search field.

- Add/edit/remove images, and access items you added using My Images. If you find that an image that you'd like to add a more complete desription to, you can edit it using your on-screen keypad, or add your own images that you may have available.

- Rate images on a 5-star system. Once rated, the image is much easier to access later since you can just tap on the "Top Rated" button (in the "More" section)

- Mark your favorite images, and save them in the Favorites area. This is similar to the "Top Rated" feature, but with more direct access since the button is always-visible at the bottom of the screen.

- E-mail any image to a friend, and CC or BCC it, too.

- Rename categories and add/remove categories. We've given you a starting point to help you categorize and organize your images, but you can always add more, or change the default categorization. Also, you can put any image in up to 2 categories, if desired.

- Shake your mobile device for a random image. This is just fun on every level. Your kids will like this one, too.

- "View All" images for access to every item in the database.

- Use a simple "finger swipe" gesture to move from one image to another, or use the previous/next buttons.

- Insert a textual comment about the image.

- The history feature keeps a log of what you've seen.

- A Settings screen allows you to change the relative font sizes and the size of the history table.

This app requires at least OS version 3.0
