  • Great Program

    By NorthernIdaho
    I don’t have a green thumb until it’s time to grow weeds. To me all green plants are weeds until I pull them and then the wife informs me of what I just pulled. (To put it nicely) This program helps me to stay out of trouble.
  • Does not work

    By elkhound1
    Tried it on several different plants I own. It incorrectly identified all of them. Unfortunately identification by photo is not trustworthy. Developer responds back implying I didn’t use the app correctly assuming I had not watched or followed the instructional videos (Which I had done). When you take a perfectly framed and clear picture of the plant, leaves and flowers (if they have any) and it mid-identifies all of them and even the suggested alternatives are wrong then the app is not worth my time.
  • Very Poor Performance at Identifying Plants

    By OrangeWhip9
    Used to use an app that went away, but identified plants based upon shape, and structure of leaves, stems, count, etc. This app seems to not correctly identify anything, at all. Thanks for trying.
  • Poor

    By newpal23
    Will not let me save. Gives multiple options of name of plants. Mis identified 3 of 5 choices. I was expecting it to tell me what I was looking at rather than making me guess. Making me choose a nickname. First six choices are taken. Not sure I want to spend the day trying to create a nickname.
  • Really bad app.

    I was hoping that this app would work. Since I downloaded it however, it has not correctly identified one single plant and/or tree that I have taken a picture of. I am a tour guide in Colorado & perhaps it is the limitation of cell service in some of the areas that I tour my guests in. Since I was having trouble with it I thought I would try it in an area with full service & a very obvious tree, the Aspen. Sadly, misidentified that tree as well. I then tried it on a flower known as a “sky pilot.” It completely missed that one as well.
  • Error on saving info

    By kaelaschott
    Keeps saying there’s an error on saving the info I find. And the first thing I tested was incorrect.
  • Usually never write reviews but this app is worth one.

    I had the same idea for this app to snap and I’d flora &fauna back with iPhone 3 and so glad that others had it too to make it possible. Been using this app for a few days and it’s great, some times some IDs get mess up even if you follow the instructions but it’s definitely not broken like some people have been committing and like any computers recognition software there’s never always 100% but if you take another pic of a different sister flower or leaf you’ll get it at least 9/10 times what your looking for. An ideas to make it more interactive is to have & earn badges that you can collect when you find and snap different species and maybe even colors. kind of like a Pokédex style.
  • Become Plant Smart

    By C Villy
    You quickly learn so much about the plants around you’re home. I’m glad I found the app.
  • Great app

    By ohmyplants
    This app has helped me identify & clear up debates about many plants. Thanks.
  • Not identifying plants

    By Stratigo1
    I wanted to get a tree identified, so I paid for the monthly service and sent the picture for identification and never heard anything back. I'm deleting this app. It's also not able to correctly identify many shrubs in my ward. 2/3 don't come up correctly. Very disappointed. Mostly disappointed that i paid to get a tree identified and I got nothing.
