    Sounds great! I’ve just come back from doing a training with 60 plant doctors in Uganda. I noticed that a lot of them have android phones, so showed them the app during the training, and loads of them pulled out their phones and started installing it right there during the workshop. Staff from the Department of Crop Protection were particularly excited to have it, saying that now when people call them with problems, they’ll be able to just look up the answer right on their phones!
