Agriculture Mobile AppsAg Apps Abound The smart phone ecosystem started in 2007 with nothing and an iPhone. Today there are over three million apps for every imaginable (and unimaginable) task, idea, or industry.

Along with the iPhone, there are other smartphone ecosystems coming in and out of the business (in: Android; out: Blackberry).

While it took a bit, the number of agriculture apps are increasing. Below are several links to ag related apps. Note that the apps mentioned in the links have not been reviewed by Truffle Media; the links are mainly an FYI of what's out there.

Since today's "best" app may fade away tomorrow, the best approach is to share how to sift through apps and discover what works for you. The Apps For Agriculture presentation outlines what an apps is, what information in the apps stores can help, offers thoughts on connecting with people you know and trust, and suggests some general categories of apps that everyone should have loaded [slides][video].
