The OpenATK Tillage App provides a simple means of recording data pertaining to tillage operations and displaying operation status to the users. The data collected can be used for easy recording of tillage operations for both short- and long-term planning.
This app keeps a record of tillage operations for a list of fields with statuses of “Planned”, “Started”, or “Done”. Also, each record contains the date of last status change, the name of the operator, and comments. Each field also has an optional associated boundary polygon which is shaded according to the operation status.
Each app has its own Trello Board.
You can join the mailing list, fork us on GitHub, and you can always email us for more information.
Each app has its own development resources: functional specs, UI mockups, documentation, and code.
Our development process starts with functional specifications. If you don't know what those are, here's Joel Spolsky to explain it.
User Interface Mockups
We use the web-based software, mybalsamiq , to develop the UI mockups for the Map and List UIs.
Source code for the OpenATK Tillage App is available on GitHub. Don't forget the Common Libraries.

The Future of the Tillage App
More platforms: we're only on Android now. iOS will come as soon as we get some people to work on it.
More cloud storage libraries: we've only got Trello support now. Dropbox's new Datastore API has caught our eye and moved them up the list ahead of Google Drive.
More support and community: to give this project long-term stamina, we're actively seeking partners and community developers who would like to contribute.
