  • Horrible app

    By 7yearsivebeenplaying
    I got this app so my child and I could identify edible plants while hiking... but it couldn’t even properly identify the Aloe plant in my office. Seems like a good app to use if ya don’t mind poisoning yourself
  • Confirmed doesn’t work, developer retaliation for real feedback, no support available

    By AB262
    Update 4: For anyone wanting to try this app, please read the developer responses to my feedback to see how unprofessional and discourteous they are. The reviews are either one star or five stars. Reading them would identify which are real and which are not. There’s zero support and subscription money is a waste. Very surprised at the developers claim that they are being promoted by Apple and Google! Update 3: It’s been 3 weeks and I haven’t changed my opinion. I was directed to write to customer support, and their response takes a long time (as opposed to 24-hours mentioned). I sent pictures for helping in identifying. No other reply received than the standard automated acknowledgment. This app is either unfinished or fake. Either way, best to ignore the fake reviews and read the real ones that capture the limitations. I don’t understand why such developers are allowed to offer subscriptions on App Store. Update 2: Seems this developer spends all time retaliating to real reviews here. 96% identification rate is a false claim and this should be checked by Apple. There is no support other than an automated email. They claim that real botanist can help in identification but not so in practice. Most reviews are fake. Better free options available. My suggestion is to stay away from this one. Check for yourself before subscribing. Update: After the developer response to the review, I contacted them through email as suggested. However, they do not send any reply. What’s the point in paying a subscription or a high upfront fee if the promised service can not be provided? Further, they claim a 24x7 support through LIVE global agents but in reality it’s nothing more than an automated acknowledgement. The 5 trial pictures are not enough to test the app. Asked to pay monthly or an expensive upfront. Success rate of identification is not even 5%. AI and auto modes are useless. Send pic by email for identification but no reply. Lengthy and confusing instructions to put the fault on the user. Big claims but bad performance.
  • Poor

    By MooreTwister
    I’ve been unable to get accurate identification of plants, even the ones I know.
  • Not identifying correctly

    By AnnG918
    The app is fairly intuitive and easy to use. I find the limit on the number of pictures you can take on the free app super obnoxious since it’s full of ads and that is generally where apps differ between free and premium. But the biggest issues is that it is not identifying trees correctly. For many of them, the options listed would have very little similarities (other than having green leaves). And then a pop up would appear suggesting you look at the tutorials, which I did - they were, essentially, useless. Anyone using the app to the point where that pop up would have appeared would have already grasped the fundamentals shown in the tutorial videos. Punchline: really glad I didn’t pay for the premium app.
  • Not as Helpful as I imagined

    By LCN34
    What has me stumped , is also what has the app stumped. I took some test snaps and it wasn’t very successful in identifying plants.
  • Awful

  • Plant snap

    By kjo1919
    Love this fun App have not explored it too much yet. I would like to see the common name for the plant too.
  • Basically useless

    By Wolfj008
    I’ll keep it short. Roughly 20 attempts at identification and have had 2 semi-successful results. True story
  • requires sign up

    By TheLostVertex
    yet another app that requires you to sign up for no practical purpose other than to sell your data to third parties. Dont bother downloading
  • More like Plant Crap

    By DK441
    Update: I use this app every now and then to see if it can help identify a plant but most times it’s wrong and searching on google usually gives me a lot better results. I stick to what I said. The app is decent, DECENT, at best and doesn’t deserve anything above two stars. As for the developers of this app, they DO NOT take constructive criticism from consumers well. In turn they rather leave passive aggressive comments instead of improving their sub par app. All of us from the plant community appreciate your efforts but we’d rather not hear back until your app is in working market condition. Appreciate your feedback but again... NEXT. Another update: If you see any positive feedback for this app, more than likely it was made by the developer. The reviews that state this app works, are clearly just the developer trying to put good reviews to outweigh the bad. Don’t waste your time with it, trust all the bad reviews.... the app is terrible at identifying. I use the app ‘PICTURE THIS’, isn’t the best but does a heck of a lot better job at identifying than Plant Snap.
