Accessing a specific African Violet variety
The entire list of cultivars is in the main panel area. There are over 18,000 listed. To quickly access any one, tap on the first letter of the name of the variety. This will take you to the first entry with that letter as it first letter. We will use “Jolly Bambino” as our target plant in this illustration. Tap the “J” in the panel to the right. Below the letters, there will appear a button that has “Expand J” as it’s title. Tap that button. The system will now display all of the unique combinations of the first two letters of the plants that begin with “J”. Find the “Jo” and tap that line. Again below the right hand panel the button now has “Expand Jo” as it’s title. Tap that button. The system will now display all of the unique combinations of the first three letters of the plants that begin with “Jo”. Find the “Jol” and tap that line. The panel on the left will now have the plants that “Jol” as their first three letters. Look through the list and find “Jolly Bambino”, tap that line. The system will now show any pictures associated with “Jolly Bambino” and the descriptions that are listed in the AVSA Masterlist. At the bottom of the screen, you can move one entry at a time, either forward or backward, through the directory without returning to the directory screen. To return to the directory screen, tap the button in the center of the bottom line on the plant details panel.
Change the Settings
The “gear” icon on the right of the screen give you access to the Settings panel. When you get a new password, you will need to enter on this screen to have access to all the new information that has been enter into the Masterlist. If you do not purchase a new password, you will still have access to all the information in the Masterlist up to the point that your password is valid. You can also change the transition effects that are used between the directory and the detail panels. The speed of the transition can also be customized. If you want to change the picture that is used on the opening screen, Tap the words “Choose Screen Background ”. At this point you can choose any image that is in your camera roll. If you want a logo image, either email or text the image to yourself, then use “Save Image”. It will store the image in your camera roll for access. If you decide you like the logo of my home club, “First African Violet Society of Dallas”, just tap the “Use Default Background” button.
