Apple has sold an estimated 33 million total iPhones and 13 million iPod touches up until the start of 2010. This means the market consists potentially of about 46 million iPod touch and iPhone users.

We are also providing them with the knowledge of what kind of plant or flower it is by giving them the common and scientific name.
The other market we are going after is the adventurer. This person is primarily male age 15-50. This market is interested in the outdoors with activities such as camping, hiking, backpacking, traveling, hunting, fishing, etc. What we are advertising to this person is the information the app provides on the individual uses of each plant.
