  • Waste of money

    Waste of money
  • Works great!

    By RCEsq
    Very impressive, really enjoy this app so far.
  • Requires making an account

    By William Winters
    Why does this app need my email address and name in order for me to take a picture of a plant? Thanks for the reply. Why not have making an account optional if you are going to suggest using a fake email address? I paid $4 for the app, saw I needed to sign in, and just deleted it. You probably want people to use your app.
  • Save your money and do not buy it

    By UID720002
    Basically, it didn't recognize any plants I took so far, and I finally gave up trying. So sad.
  • Can’t believe I paid money for this

    By GingerTour2014
    I would delete it, but I paid $3 for it. When it does work, it takes a long time to load results. And then gives you options for you to choose what the plant could be. I wouldn’t have paid for the app if I already knew that. Now, it’s forcing a tutorial every time I try to use it and the camera won’t open.
  • Not working

    By Ruthie74
    I got really excited about this app when I first saw it. I have a couple of plants I don’t know what they are. So I downloaded the app followed directions and started testing it out on plants I do know. Nope keeps giving me the wrong names. Tried several times with no luck and I even I tried the plants that I don’t recognize and it gave me names of plants I know for sure that these are not those plants. I wish I never wasted my money.
  • Keeps Crashing and Can’t Identify Plants

    By misticky
    I just bought this app and tried to identify 3 plants that I already know the name of. It couldn’t identify any of them and kept crashing on me. Even after I suggested the name, it crashed. Tried it with another plant...crashed again.
  • Didn’t work.

    By KathyLun
    Followed the copious instructions to a tee. Plant ID wasn’t even in the ballpark and neither photo I took showed up in my plant gallery.

    By Flalover
    I bought the app, followed directions and snapped photos of plants I knew. Doesn’t identify anything. I would have been better off googling them, I would have had a better chance of identifying the plants. I want my money back!!!!
  • Utterly Useless!

    By Blue-Moon-Dragonfly
    You are also rudely arrogant! You also broke my anonymity by revealing my name in you reply below - a legal violation that is clearly stated in the Confidentiality Statement in the email you are quoting in my reply! You insist on blaming the user for a clearly defective app! This is your way of retaliating against my honest and negative review of your app. Pathetic! I minored in horticulture. I tried using the auto identify feature and was shocked to see that it identified a Cedar as a Fern! So, I submitted several photos of Incense Cedar for review and identification. I’m told that my Calocedrus decurrens is a Chamaecyparis! Reporting this to the app developer has resulted in them arguing that I am having a problem understand how to photograph a plant. What a joke and a disservice to their app users that will not realize that that their app identifies as a Camellia or Rhododendron is actually a Manzanita, etc., etc. Ridiculous!
