  • New App

    By PNWYankee
    I recently purchased this app. I’ve been testing it on plants I know. Three out of three have not identified the plant properly. I retake the photo looking for different angles of the plant. Usually the second or third photo will mis-identify the plant but gives me the choice of the correct one, which I already know is correct. I have not tested the app on plants I don’t know, could be frustrating.
  • Lovely!

    So fun to use on a daily basis... was a great app to have at my fingertips on a recent visit to our local botanical garden!
  • Amazing App for any plant lover!

    I absolutely love this app and cannot say enough good things about it. I love walking through different botanical gardens, greenhouses, or even just hiking, and now when I’m curious about a plant, or just think it looks interesting I can use Plant Snap! Not only does this let me look back on the plant later, but I also learn a lot of information about it. However I do have one improvement that would make the app even better. Because I love plants so much, I own several and was so happy that I could organize them online on Plant Snap. However I wish there was a section that talked about plant care specifically for that pant you take a picture of. I know this is a monumentally huge task given how many plants are in the system, but my primary use for the app is for organizing plants I grow myself. It would be really beneficial to learn growing technics (how difficult, how much water/sunlight, etc) for the plants you snap. Often times I’ll snap a plant in the wild and want to buy it from a nursery but I’ll have to leave the app and google the information instead of it being presented within the app. Overall though this is an amazing app and I am very happy with my purchase! Thank you so much for creating this app and continue to release amazing updates 🌱
  • Awesome

    Not only does it accurately identify plants, but it catalogues it’s users information to constantly make the identification more and more accurate. Brilliant! It’s been great for us to find out what plants are on our Hawaiian property!
  • Not worth the money

    By trayhav
    I uploaded four leaves to the app and it was unable to positively identify even one as more than “probably.” I then submitted the four leaves to be reviewed by one of their “botanists” on Sept 15 (late at night.) Five days later I still haven’t heard a thing from anyone. Feels like clever packaging, oily promises and a failure to deliver. I got ripped off and want my money back. Can’t seem to figure out how to contact anyone further either. 😡
  • Excellent educational tool

    By Capt Catnip
    I use this as I walk around to find out what grows locally so I can learn more about the local ecosystem. Also to find things that grow well in the local environment. I always suspected that "weeds" each have a name. Now with this app I can learn their names and teach others. This app also helped me successfully identify poisonous plants that otherwise looked tasty.
  • Waste of money

    By Badclues
    Updated in response to developers response: If your app is so difficult to use correctly that every problem is the users fault, then you need to redesign your app. Seriously people iNaturalist works so much better and includes animals too, not just plants. Terribly inaccurate suggestions. Slow response times from others to help identify plants. I wished I had known about iNaturalist before I bought this. Much better suggestions and input from others.
  • So far so good

  • Herbs

    By sadherb
    Very weak on identifying herbs
  • Fake Plant ID app

    By PlantSnapmyA$$
    Worst plant ID app. it never gave a correct id even after following their instructions. i’ve tried some free versions of other plant id apps and works way better than this app. watch out for the good reviews on this app, most of them are bait reviews. I agree they answered those queries and bad reviews on their FB page and to be honest those comments made me purchased this app as well but those are bogus/fake AF comments from the paid mods. If i can give this app a zero i would. Do not buy this app. you’d been warned.
