Carl: Plant Identification app reviews

  • Doesn’t work 1/5

    By Gtryapit
    This app doesn’t work. When you try to find out how to treat your plant - It just gives you a long list everything what might be wrong with it- every single known plant disease. I tried this on many plants - same result. Why to upload photos then? Waste of money!
  • So far very accurate for me?? 5/5

    By Winsome Lumpkinrplc
    Nice app, the identification of different plants is pretty accurate, there is a detailed description of all species. The application itself is practical and easy to use.
  • Worked for me 5/5

    By Keiondre Caesmanuw
    Great app. I would appreciate some quick option to copy Latin name to clipboard for further Googling and/or button to quickly jump to Google results. I need it mainly for searching for local names in my native language. If app could show me local names as well, that would be perfect 😃
  • Not helpful at all 1/5

    By tlacuache22$$$$
    Unable to identify all plants
  • Seeing is believing?? 4/5

    By Bobbys Mama
    I’m anxious to see how my plants (2) do with your advice. My philodendron was a funeral piece from the death of my dear Mother. She died January 31, 1960. I’ve kept it going with cutting every few years, and only ever given it water.
  • Very accurate! 5/5

    By Ayreonna Tannskfauq
    It will be great for identifying plants I see out an about , now I can order them by name. I wanted to tell my friends and family but I can't see a "share" link? keep up the good work .
  • Extremely Disappointed 1/5

    By forrester859
    I just downloaded the app and used it on 5 ! Of my houseplants. It gave me the Same diagnosis for each of the plants - The are all different plants. I got more information from just googling my questions- without having to download a USELESS app take numerous pictures etc. what a waste !
  • Sophisticated database 5/5

    By Deiondra Zukerlkzab
    In order for the application to work correctly, you need high-quality, clear photos of the object, so rememer this. What about other functions, they work as expected. I use it mostly for reminders. just thought I'd balance out at least one of those unfair negative reviews from people who were too lazy to read about your app's scope and purpose first. ?
  • Watering tips are lit! 5/5

    By Ncholas Matussowqorw
    Such a great app, has allowed to me identify so many plants!!! It has helped me a lot in my journey of learning more about plants 😃 and there are no ads!
  • Terrible app 1/5

    By vickivamster
    This isn't anything like the ads say. It doesn't identify the plants correctly and doesn't give you these kinds of solutions. Not even close. Google is better than this. I actually may report them to the Better Business Bureau for false advertising. DON'T BELIEVE ANYTHING ABOUT IT. Reading the response to another negative review, and their "solutions", my photos were clear. It is not our job to help develop their app. I stupidly bought the lifetime subscription, and they wouldn't give me my money back for an app that doesn't even come close to what they say it does. Don't buy it. Ever.
  • Brilliant app. 5/5

    By Enrriqueta Wadlowqpcrnu
    Easy, quick, no ads or scams, and so far immediately recognized everything here - as long as the plant or grass is not obscured by other plants (which is only logical). Great app!
  • Don’t waste your money 1/5

    By Nickname401195
    Worse ever app
  • Learning a lot! 5/5

    By Qiana McKiniezr
    This is a great app. I use it for farming all the time to identify plants growing in our pastures. We have found it to be pretty accurate and entertaining.
  • or range of suggestions about what the plant might be. 5/5

    By Yessika Speereiqdhdcaj
    You can use it for quickly and accurately plant identification. Easy to use and speedy to arrive at exact match
  • Save your money. 1/5

    By mansiljr
    I used it the first time and it was great. The second time they wanted me to pay for the service. Will not let you go anything unless you pay up. Going to delete this app.
  • Doesn’t work 1/5

    By vmanzella
    Saw it on Instagram, downloaded it and tried it on a couple of my succulents, which it didn’t correctly identify them. Do I need to pay to make it identify correctly? I’ve deleted and unsubscribed to your app & emails.
  • It's good and accurate! 5/5

    By Sitlaly Poldenwtyfndsd
    Love this app, I have little clue about what plants we had in the garden a few clicks later and it comes up with the answer, really impressed, well done app makers. ?
  • Immediate identifications. 5/5

    By Hannon Snowdingtpdwrxbj
    After comparing it with the other top plant identifying apps I find this one more reliable. It also creates a plant profile with scheduled care reminders. I have more than 10 plant in my house, so it's hard to keep in mind a watering schedule for them, and this app really helpful for this.
  • Fantastic! 5/5

    By Priscille Mapstonevg
    It's a very accurate app to identify flowers, trees and bushes on our homestead. I love the detailed information and uses. Enjoying this free app very much!
  • Scam 1/5

    By called me Tanya
    Deceptive subscription trial with NO way to opt out. Stuck with lifetime subscription that I don’t want. Email correspondences give run around. Even addressed by a completely different name. Not to mention the Inaccuracies of the app.
  • Don't do a trial ! You can't cancel 1/5

    By Southfloridagirl
    The day I downloaded the app, I went thru the process with 3 plants that aren't doing well. It came up with 20 possible causes that were non specific. It has a light meter (not great) and a reminder to tell you to water. I tried canceling the first day. It then told me I had to cancel on another platform which wasn't possible (the cancel button disappeared) . They charged me 29.99 for the year. Two emails later still no resolution and Apple says it's not eligible for a refund.
  • Very fast and efficient app 5/5

    By Jasine Lestordnwyjflf
    Amazingly handy. I downloaded it just out of curiosity, not planning to subscribe, but I use it almost daily for my house plants caring. Spent the day in the local mountains of Utah taking pictures and I was able to identify all the plant life it all my photographs.
  • Adorable app 5/5

    By Lurae Pigromeomioqe
    Really Good. Uploaded then deleted several other apps trying to identify a particular plant in my garden which only this app achieved, immediately with no fuss. It has a really great feature - tracking of the plant condition. It's really helpful.
  • Not worth the money. Total Rip off! Doesn’t work. 1/5

    By cehsvxbdjwsRusty
    Ending subscription and deleting app. Here’s why….. Couldn’t identify plants properly. I took a picture of a bamboo chute growing. It said it was a palm tree. It couldn’t properly identify a Jade tree either. Not worth 199.00$ let alone 49.99$. It’s a good thing I wasn’t trying to eat it, thinking it was something else. I would have gotten really deathly Ill, had I eaten a jade tree leaf. Very dangerous thing to not be right about every time when it comes to identifying species correctly. What if I was in the wild or foraging for a farmers market?? Guess what those mushrooms I picked in the woods just killed grandma. Don’t risk it. Not cool, I’m surprised they haven’t gotten sued yet. Long story short, stick with good old fashion books. If you get sick from eating a plant or some sort of rash picking it, don’t say I didn’t warn ya. Good luck to all even thinking about this. Do yourself a favor and buy THE OLD WAYS and also the OLD FORAGERS BOOK. If you wanna survive, it’s not gonna work with this, especially if we get hit with and EMP from China or Russia. I know this off topic, but if not that, you don’t want the IVY on ya a*$. Good luck.
  • Irritating 1/5

    By Noname.Jane
    I guess free apps don’t exist anymore
  • False advertising 1/5

    By LOST Angeles, CA
    This app’s advertising tells you you’ll just be able to point your camera at a plant and it will give you an instant diagnosis. I’m actuality, it points you to typical plant diseases that are irrelevant to your plant. My biggest complaint is that it’s library is extremely limited; it has almost none of the plants i have searched for. This was a total waste of money for me and I have found a simple Google search to be more helpful.
  • Review 4/5

    By Pauldad
    It is a very helpful app but don’t expect it to identify all plants because it will not.. Given that limitation I would purchase it again
  • Helps to know the world of flora nearby 5/5

    By Glayds Tyceetxi
    Functional, quick, accurate. Walking around identifying plants has never been this fun, this is like pokemon or something. Makes morning walks slower but enjoyable. My husband is now looking for species to identify ?
  • Educational tips 5/5

    By Franccesca Quartleyyckmwipc
    Quick, accurate & educational to keep it "to the point". Does exactly what is stated in the details, (About this app.) And more. Excellent app in my opinion. I rarely give reviews on apps unless they do exactly what is expected of them, or if Im surprisingly impressed. With this app I am both.
  • There is an option for Celsius and Farenheit 5/5

    By Willey Sneesbieepdgjeld
    This is great! Does exactly what I hoped it would. It's a lot of fun walking in the forest with the children and learning what the plants are.
  • Use it daily 5/5

    By Marterius Friendaleuhesr
    It was really helpful for my house plant identification. Carl also will help you with your daily caring routine. I love that there are reminders for watering and fertilizing my plants. And now you can also set the language in which you want the app + identified plants to be in. keep up the good work!
  • Screen 1/5

    By Chrismaire2
    I would love to use this app but it's too big on my screen and I can't continue because it's under my screen
  • Not worth the price - lacks 3/5

    By Davryland23
    While the app is great at identifying specific species of plants, it lacks in identifying the correct ailment or diseases. The app will give a number of options of possible issues and sometimes none of them being correct. This app get gets a C- due to high price point and poor functionality.
  • Meets my needs 5/5

    By Waris Tampionhebrwrvy
    The app differs from all the similar ones. I do not see any other reviews that focus on this matter and I personally see it as something very strange. The app corresponds with all my needs and fulfills them fully.
  • Does plant identification perfectly. 5/5

    By Shigenobu Guerrierotunqedgi
    To find out the name of the plant you have just to take the picture and uppload it. It's faster than any other Internet search and even any other apps.
  • Scam 1/5

    By nasty aoo
    Do not subscribe. There is no way to unsubscribe. Totally unethical
  • id tool is kind of perfect 5/5

    By Kimori Countcozzyb
    Many cool features but the most addicting is plant id tool
  • A long way to go 2/5

    By Lealea1111
    I was super excited about Carl and become quickly disappointed. I think the intent is good but it has a long way to go. Every single time I took a picture it gave me a completely different plant bar 1 time & it was on the 2nd picture I took. Sorry guys, I wish you luck. I think I will try again when you have better data.
  • Scam 1/5

    By nplvuy
    This app wouldn’t let me cancel. All these reviews it says to contact them at [email protected] or whatever the handle is. I did and They don’t respond when you email them. You will be ghosted and get no response!! They just say that to seem like they are responsive but they are not!! Don’t be fooled!!
  • Incorrect identification of plants 1/5

    By SpaceMonkey54321
    This app sounds great but it clearly doesn’t ID plants correctly. Even after multiple attempts it could not ID my miracle fruit bush. Also my household plants were not diagnosed with the issue they were having.
  • A PROPER app for plants 5/5

    By Paraskevas Crevandzpyrt
    Flowers, trees, grasses, ferns... It simply has ALL the plant types and identifies them properly.
  • App for all 5/5

    By Jacquil Doornbosem
    I've been thinking recently about an interactive lesson with my midschollers and when I found the app I was amazed how comfy and universal it is. Recommending it for all the parents actually.
  • Fast 5/5

    By iphoneis
  • 😃 5/5

    By Lajeana Comobantji
    I will be sad if you'll make it Premium-only once. I don't have money but it really helps me.
  • Terrible! 1/5

    By Flwr07
    Not only could it not identify the plants, it keeps charging me but doesn’t allow me to delete it. I thought I did but I won’t delete. I’m not even signed in…my email address doesn’t register, but they keep charging me. This feels like a scam.
  • Thank you for the free version 5/5

    By Jerica Larwelllciw
    None other app for planters gives such detailed recommendations. I'm honestly surprised and it's free to use.
  • PERFECT 5/5

    By Rc Smalepkmdjdoe
    What do I think about it? Perfect. Really, there is nothing more to add.
  • Needs Internet to work (phone data not enough?) 1/5

    By Hungerland
    Got this to identify plants on hikes. It works with photos after the fact, but I expected instant gratification like ‘sound hound’. I then realized it’s a free trial only and made sure to delete my account before the $50 fee kicks in. Maybe it works differently once you pay, but I doubt it? I’m not the target, but may be of use for other gardeners.
  • Time savior 5/5

    By Junietta Becketxgzxebfu
    I am a student of biology and often come across various plants in my studies. The application just incredibly helps to learn faster and not spend a lot of time searching
