  • Ugly icon

    By nicknamechallengebeunique
    When i bought the app one thing i liked was the icon. It was a nice green color set off by some white. Now it has an ugly yellow strip at the bottom that says pro to remind me i paid money for the app. I don’t understand how anybody anywhere at anytime could ever consider that an improvement. Hopefully i can undo the update. If not I’ll uninstall. It’s a real eye sore.
  • Nice

    Good app
  • Unbelievable!

    By Kolby1969
    I spent almost exactly 1 year going through my yard, snapping photos and figuring out what the plant REALLY is because rarely did the 1st suggested return match what I photographed and now all the sudden “My Collection” is GONE! I had about 20 different things sorted out, saved and I frequently returned to “My Collection” to either remember the name of something or learn more about it and now it’s all gone....evidently because I updated my iPhone this was the cause because I did nothing differently except did a mandatory update to my disenchanting...
  • Why does this app need an email registration?

    By Ignatius_J_Reilly
    Pretty tired of apps like this that feel the need to harvest information from me. I can’t think of a good reason why I need to register at all. Deleted.
  • Great concept. Buggy execution, and usually wrong.

    Unable to identify a common pothos vine. It’s NOT “devils ivy”!
  • A Delightful App

    By YokoshimaTanuki
    This app is absolutely phenomenal! I am currently working on my first year of plant studies in my high school botany-prep class, and this app works wonders! Yes, of course it is not 100% accurate, but then again, it removes all instances of human error, so the ONLY ways that it could mistake a plant would be that, for one, the photographer could be doing a not-so-great job at capturing the plant, or that the database has little instances of the plant. The only way to cure that? Continue to use the app! As thousands of people continuously take pictures of plants and post them here, looking for an answer to their questionable identification, the software will only get better! Practice makes perfect, of course, and no human botanist can start off naming every species of haworthia, so why expect that from a machine MADE by humans? Not everyone is perfect, nor is every software. No offense to the creator(s), of course, as I am sure they will agree. I am very grateful that this application was taken time on, perfected, and released in a finished state. Some apps of this nature cannot state the same, sadly. Again, thank you for spending the time to create this app, and, to all of you that doubt or slander this creation, give it a chance. It might just surprise you. 😉
  • Does not work most of the time

    By JimPuerto
    More than 50% of the time it incorrectly identifies the plant. When I send the pictures in to be identified I have never received feedback.
  • Oh Well!

    By Pattyoboe
    I thought this would be the answer to plant ID, but after getting some right it stopped correctly identifying things. I’ve never heard back when asking for help. I will go back to a Flickr group that helps as it is much more reliable. I wasted my money on this one.
  • Doesn’t seem to recognize anything!

    By D-Coup
    I’ve tried the app with several plants I didn’t know, and the app suggested things that didn’t match at all (the online pictures I found based on the PlantSnap suggestion did not remotely match the plant I was trying to identify). After failing several times to identify unknown plants, I started using the app to identify well-known plants, like lettuce and mint, just to see what would happen. It couldn’t identity those, either!🙁 Unfortunately, this purchase, though a cool idea, was a complete waste of money.
  • Do not waste time or money

    By Icachef
    Tried on six plants I have and know and not one was correct.
