  • Wow, I’m speechless!

    By Imuser364
    I almost never give 5 star reviews but this app is amazing. They are using machine learning (artificial intelligence) to look at the photo and spit out either the exact species or highly similar species with about 95% accuracy. I bought a home with tons of plants since it was previously owned by a gardener and I had no idea what I had or how to take care of them. I had no green thumb whatsoever. This app helped me save so much time researching and asking people on Facebook that I can now focus on getting back to my life and just smelling the roses! See what I did there? ;-)
  • $4 of my life I’ll never get back

    By Michael Pierce SR
    I seen this app in an ad and thought it was worth trying out...well after only 48 hours and testing it out on several known plants the app has yet to identify even one of them correctly. The idea of the app is great, the actual usefulness not so much. Hopefully the designers will read / see these reviews and get it fixed. Don’t waste your $ yet....
  • Do not waste your money

    Don’t waste your money. This app identified only about half the plants I photographed. And these were common plants. Example: it identified my jalapeno pepper plant as a “Japanese banana”!
  • Not any good

    By Nanna De
    I tried different light , pinching the image, snapping numerous times, with few correct results. Most were not even close to the image. I want my money back, but have not figured out how to get that done. I tried again. Get maybe one out of 8. I would like a refund. Cannot find the message you sent o contact you because when I tried to get the message back it disappeared. Thanks for the refund.
  • Very disappointing

    By MadlyHB
    At least 50% of plants I have submitted are not identified. They are fairly standard plants that I can easily find in my plant book. This app would be acceptable if it were free but for $5 I expected more.
  • Does not Work

    By pinkbikecolorado
    I tried several plants in full flower when they are the easiest to ID. The ap came up with plants that looked nothing like the plants I had except the same color flower.
  • So fun! I love PlantSnap!

    By SuzLS
    Sure, it isn’t perfect but think of the millions of plants that are out there. I am thrilled to have a resource that can at least narrow down the huge amount of weird plants I spot all over the Northwest. I’m giving it 5 stars for affordability, ambition, plant knowledge and ease of use. I bet that as more users feed in photos, it will get better and better. Hey—I bet if there was an option to select your geographic region, it would be useful too. Thanks!
  • Waste of money!
