  • Smart App

    By HeyItsDebV
    Great app for flower & plant identification! It's as easy to use as SNAPing a photo!
  • Setting up an account is bad

    By KillBillwithNIN
    Really get with the iOS way of authentication asking me to type my email and password twice and not using the built in password feature is just ugly. Then again the text in most of the dialog is ugly. Suspect it’s an Android feature.
  • Can I get my money back?

    By ownANiphone6
    Didn’t know I had to sign in with my personal info to use this app. Can I get my money back?
  • Good concept but...

    By AfricanMonkey
    Seems like a really good concept but the execution isn’t there. If it’s a flowering plant, it looks like the only way to identify it is based on the flowers, not the plant leaves. Misidentifies quite regularly as well.
  • Wrong each time

    By gonzophotog
    Sent photos of two common plants that I knew the ID for, the app got both wrong.
  • So Disappointing

    By Boyrie
    I just purchased this app. I watched the tutorial videos and followed the directions closely. I took 3 pictures of 3 common plants in my garden. It did not correctly identify a single plant, and it wasn’t even close in its guesses. For example, it identified squash as a hibiscus. I love the concept, but this app doesn’t work to accurately identify plants.
  • Takes some tinkering, but overall ok.

    By DBickford213
    I was a little disheartened by the reviews, and when it failed to identify my tomato plant I was pretty disappointed. BUT once I got the hang of it it worked pretty well. I’d say take a lot of pictures on your hikes/foraging forays and do your research as well. A great tool to get you started.
  • Magic 8-Ball Guesses

    By OutdoorRon
    Day 1 - I watched the tutorial. I’ve tested this with 3 neighborhood trees. Tree #1 - its second guess got the tree family, but not species. Tree #2 - its second guess was correct. Tree #3 - all guesses wrong. I did ping a very responsive support, and followed their tips. No improvement so far, but I’ll keep trying. It’s a unique app. I’ll update if it gets better with practice.
  • Not impressed

    By Irenedawn
    I had high hopes. Followed all instructions, watched the how to videos and still have gotten very poor results. This app doesn't get much right and the developers are unpleasant when there are complaints. Trying some other plant identification apps.
  • Inaccurate on over half of the plants

    By roggierotten
    This app didn’t identify plants correctly more than half of the time! I’ve asked for a refund because this app simply doesn’t work a vast majority of the time. They are giving me a huge runaround about a refund, after offering a refund! I would give zero stars if I could. I suspect the good ratings with more than a couple stars are fake. *** update: now these people have the nerve to say that I got correct identification of plants and I am trying to scam them someway and get those identifications for free. What a joke. This is not what happened. This app simply doesn’t identify plants correctly the majority of the time.
