AgSense releases iPad version of its WagNet Mobile app
AgSense LLC recently released an iPad version of its flagship mobile application WagNet Mobile.
This update includes a more comprehensive, user-friendly navigation and added features, as well as several additional sensor and irrigation programming capabilities.
"We are seeing more and more of our customers using iPads or other types of tablets around the farm. They always seem to be within reach," said Steve Sveum, vice president of sales and marketing for AgSense. Sveum added, "One grower I was with recently held up his iPad and said, 'I want my whole farm on this thing'. This new app is a major step in that direction for him and all of our customers."
To further respond to customer demand, a primary feature of the new app is the long-awaited ability for users to view their devices geographically thanks to a "Google Maps" plugin directly within the app. WagNet users have been able to do this for several years through the WagNet website and can now do the same on their iPad.
Other new features include compatibility with additional brands of soil moisture probes along with leaf wetness, solar radiation and ET gauges. Also included is the ability to program and operate a secondary end gun or pump control switch (if the pivot is set up for this).
To download or update to this new version, visit the Apple App Store found by clicking the "App Store" icon on your iPhone or iPad.
