    Found this thread doing a little research for a new project I'm working on. Any new developments related to smartphone apps for lawn maintenance companies? If you have a few minutes to spare, I put together a quick survey that will help me get a better idea of what we should look into designing. Thanks guys, I really appreciate it!
