Gardens by the Bay Mobile App!

Gardens by the Bay, one of the world’s leading horticultural gardens, announced the launch of its first mobile application, designed using cutting-edge technology to enhance visitors’ experiences. Supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies, the app will engage and excite visitors through a series of interactive trails, games, educational tools and information about the Gardens’ unique horticulture.
The Gardens by the Bay mobile app will serve as a practical multimedia guide, providing an introduction to the vast collection of plant life throughout the Gardens and explanations of the diverse habitats around the world. Using GPS and way-finding technology, the app will offer an interactive map and encourage visitors to explore hidden locations, earning them virtual rewards for finding these secret spots and completing scavenger-like challenges. Available in five languages – English, Mandarin, Malay, Tamil and Japanese – the app will engage visitors through educational games that reinforce horticultural learning, augmented reality that encourage users to uncover virtual plants, and sharing on social media.
“Gardens by the Bay came up with a really imaginative way to use mobile technology to help more people explore and interact with its exhibits. Its app is a great tool for learning about nature, no matter where you are – and it will make a visit to one of the world's most innovative horticultural gardens even more spectacular,” said Michael R. Bloomberg, founder of Bloomberg Philanthropies. 
Our review: 
Thanks to Gardens by the Bay for inviting us to bloggers' preview and family scavenger hunt. It's absolutely an addictive and fun application and you can get a lot of information about the gardens. Look for hidden codes and decode them to learn about various flora around you. Use GPS and maps to navigate from current location to different parts of the gardens. Launch Magazine as well as explore and be involved in various activities such as "Botany Hunt", "Hidden Secrets", "Build your Garden and Where in the World". Earn badges and grow your "Tree of Knowledge" upon completion of each activity. Be it a team building activity or a simple scavenger hunt for everyone, it is a MUST TRY application! 
The Gardens by the Bay app is now available on both Apple and Android platforms and can be downloaded for free via iTunes and Google Play. Information on the app is available at
