  • Save your money App does not work!

    By Jannese1970
    This app is a scam as far as I'm concerned. I have now had 5 out of 6 plants identified incorrectly. The one it did identify it could only identify the genus, which is pretty is because it was a calathea. Save your money and just use the internet and social media to identify plants
  • Phoenix troubles

    By jwmossy
    The app is only 50% in identifying the plants in my yard in Phoenix.
  • Overall it’s good

    By thatcaliforniacold
    It takes good pictures to get it to work. Watch shadows in pictures
  • Nice app

    By TallPopsTanner
    It’s a lot of fun. We used it over the weekend. If you don’t have the internet don’t bother.
  • Inaccurate identification and crashes

    By Swan1019
    As a test, I had it identify the household plants. It could only identify the pineapple accurately. I can do that with my eyes closed. Whenever I try to submit the correct identification, the app crashes, even after restarting my phone.
  • Works great

    Needs good pictures which isn't always possible
  • Science fiction come to life

    Amazing app! iPhones are getting closer and closer to being just like Star Trek Tricoders! PlantSnap works incredibly well, and I was very skeptical. Highly recommend! Marsh grass that I had trouble with previously is now identified! I think they must have added more species because I got a result on a hike yesterday on a mushroom that wasn't identified before. Seems to work well on succulents and cacti. Just saved me from poison ivy! WOW works on mushrooms now, too!
  • Waste of money

    By RawhideRider
    I’ve had this app for awhile. Kept waiting for it to improve but it hasn’t. Identifies plants incorrectly. Also plant descriptions inaccurate. Looked up Daphne and got a description of a greek goddesses. Lazy developers.
  • Trouble recognizing house plants

    By gabriel sherry
    This app is a great idea, but doesn't work well. It has difficulty recognizing some of my most basic house plants.
  • Loving this App!

    By Loosey & Colin
    I almost didn’t bother because of the bad reviews. So glad I did! This App is great! I’ve spent all morning going through my tree photos and IDing plants. Whilst the App didn’t know every single tree, it got a lot correct. It’s a work in progress and the more photos that get submitted, the better it should become. The photos need to be clear and close up. Preferably a flower or fruit. I’ve tried leaves as well. Some it got, some it didn’t, but I’m having a blast with it. For those of you who paid and are disappointed, try going to your local nursery to take some photos to see what works. It may just be that you are not getting enough of a close up. At least at a nursery the plants have labels so you can see if the App works. The App is fairly basic right now but I was told there will be updates to see what others around the world are IDing. Can’t wait for that. Anyway, I’m off to have fun at the garden department at Lowe’s!
