Beware the renewal after the initial trial 1/5
By Beija flor 1357
The billing cycle is very unclearly explained by the developers. I was charged for a 20 dollar years subscription when I thought I would be charged weekly. Very shady.
Huge headache 1/5
You have to subscribe to do ANYTHING and it’s a nightmare to unsubscribe
Very disappointing 1/5
After downloading this app I was so excited to try it out. I went outside and to identify plants I had planted and already new what they were.
It was able to identify 1 of 6 plants, I reshot the pictures from different angles with the same results. Very, Very, disappointing.
Do not bother 1/5
This is one of those sneaky apps that bills you automatically without prompting you for a confirmation. If you want to download it just to check it out, be sure to set a reminder on your phone or you’ll be out $20 for the annual subscription whether you want it or not.

It identified all the plants of my house.
Easy to use, effective and fun! 5/5
Impressive and disappointing at the same time 3/5
I find this app to be impressive and disappointing at the same time. While it accurately identified a papaya plant and an avocado plant (about 4 feet tall), it misidentified an orange plant (about the same height as the avocado plant) and an aloe plant (about 10 inches tall).
If the AI can be improved, this app has great potential.
Amazing features and easy to use
Picture This 3/5
3.5 stars. I used on easy and difficult plants. It was right on easy plants but didn’t identify correctly difficult plants although it was close.
NOT so helpful 5/5
By NotPleasedWithThis App
I'm getting rid of this app for a couple of reasons. First, it showed in the App Store as free. Then I find out I have to sign up for a "free trial" (of only 7 days), after which you will start charging me $20/month. It took 3 tries before the app correctly identified my plant, giving me sunflowers and then begonias at first. Further, what I have is an invasion of Quaking Aspen shoots (how do you confuse Aspen with sunflowers and begonias???) that I need to control or remove. But the app only gives me advice on how to care for them, NOT on how to get rid of them! I will NOT continue spending $20/month on an UN-helpful app. If I can, I will submit this review without any stars because there isn't a way to give it less than zero stars.
Great tool 5/5
The plant identification tool is great
10 snaps 3/5
Only ten plant identifications and then it is ads and purchases. Lame.
How can I cancel this. Does anyone know? I deleted the app. I wish y’all would stop billing me.
Changed me even tho I canceled app 1/5
Signed up and canceled when I realized it wasn’t for me, canceled and still charged me, don’t even try.
Love it. 5/5
Love this app. I use it all the time on my hikes v
Can’t cancel when I want 1/5
Not kosher so far 1/5
By SRA Rocks
Signed up with apple and now they say my account is not found. I better not be charged for this if I can’t access my account! Yes, I gave my apple email when trying to access “forgot password.”
LOVE this 5/5
So far everything I’ve thrown at this app it’s been able to identify. Definitely a keeper
Shortly after downloading I deleted the app. After reading more reviews I decided this wasn’t going to work for me. I’m not looking to buy a subscription in order to log when I water my plants. I wish there was an actual FREE version. I wouldn’t mind seeing a few ads here and there or even to buy the app for like $5 and then never have to pay again!
So far, every plant has been incorrectly identified. 1/5
Every picture I have taken has been incorrectly identified. This app does not work!
Wrong results! 2/5
Three pics came back with three wrong answers. No where to disagree with results given, or a try again approach button.
Cancel please! 1/5
I do NOT want this app. It said free app. After I opened it, it said $19.99 for a year! Please remove your app.

Excellent amazing love it very much thank You
Magical...Shazam for Plants! 5/5
What an amazing time to be alive. This app truly reminds me that we are living in “the future”. I used it a few times skeptically but was sold after it correctly identified several known plants. It’s wonderful to see the world of plants open up before your eyes - feels like I’m getting more connected to nature every time I use it. I know nothing about plants and this is like having a horticulturist in my pocket. My partner is a green thumb and loves it as well for planning and the additional data it provides. I’m happy to pay for products like this that have such a profound positive impact!
Watch out! They charged my PayPal account $21.99 without my permission- some kind of sneakers going on. I would never pay for an app!
I love this app! Anyone who shares a love for plants needs this app!
Best plant app there is 5/5
That’s it sad it’s money tho
Did free trial but was charged 1/5
Watch out for these guys. They charge you and it’s hard to find out how to get out of it. I didn’t authorize any charge.
No way to cancel 1/5
By Angry cheated person
They say to go to the page for the app and choose ‘cancel’ to cancel the subscription, but the developers put NO ‘cancel subscription’ thing on the page.
VERY clever (well actually, fraudulent...)!
Rip off 1/5
No no no 1/5
Omg do NOT install this
They charge your card immediately
And you are continually charged!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I hike and trail run and I’m not good at identifying plants. This is so awesome. Can’t wait to try it out on my longer hikes.
Got wrong 1/5
Stressing... didn’t help me
Did not subscribe!!!!!! 1/5
I did not subscribe to this. It said trial offer. Cancel me immediately!!!!
Poor app, ridiculous charges 1/5
First of all, of the various plants I tried to identify this app only got one of them right. Secondly I NEVER APPROVED any in app purchases or any subscription after the 7 day trial and out of nowhere I was charged $22!!! That’s TWENTY-TWO DOLLARS!!!! What the holy hell???!! $22 for what exactly?? A monthly subscription? Annual subscription? This app I was never asked permission and I was never informed. Either way it’s definitely not worth it.
UPDATE: In response to the app developer response. You say the same kind of stuff customer service people always say. It’s doesn’t mean anything, you’re just trying to cover your own butt and look good, it’s not cool.
A better approach is acknowledge that your approach clearly isn’t working for the user and change how you do things. It’s NOT OBVIOUS ANYWHERE that I will be automatically CHARGED $22 at the end of the trial, (or else I would not have signed up) and must end the trial 24 hours before hand, that is a RIDICULOUS business practice. It is SCAMMY, shady, sleazy-you get the idea. It’s not CLEAN AND CLEAR, and it’s not user friendly. WHO ON EARTH IS KEEPING TRACK OF THAT?? I am FAR TOO BUSY to even WASTE MENTAL SPACE remembering to cancel etc. AND YOU ARE COUNTING ON IT, which is why it’s SCAMMY SLEAZY ETC. Instead of automatically charging people-WHICH IS BAD! A BETTER APPROACH is after the 7 days are over the next time they log into the app they are informed that their trial is over, the service is discontinued and they are given options: click here to subscribe for one month, click here to subscribe for one year, etc, WITH THE PRICES CLEARLY STATED.
I cannot show you the plants your app could not identify, which was all but one of them, because I deleted the app so I no longer have them.
Good luck and I hope you make some changes ASAP.
Tapped to install but did not know there was a cost. Cancelled download but still not sure if I paid. Hate when the pricing info is not obvious.
Am I missing something 1/5
Forces me to submit the picture of the flower and what it identifies it as, even when it’s inaccurate.
Good app 5/5
I’ve enjoyed this app
It’s accurate 80% of the time for me which is a lot better then the other plant I.d. Apps I’ve tried 👍🏻👍🏻
Wrong identifiers 1/5
By Maestro Fan
No Way To Cancel Subscription. I don’t Like Crooks 1/5
Immediately after purchasing I looked everywhere for a link to cancel. I didn’t want a subscription and did not want to be charged. I sent an email using the app to their support within minutes of downloading the app and never got a response. They just charged my account. Furious. I don’t like crooks.
I love this app I’m so happy I found it
Don’t do it it’s a scam takes ur 19.99 as u download it can’t cancel either BS
By ligga keaver
Great concept and it’s full of great features but once you download it for free you can only use for 24hours then your asked to pay. It’s misleading getting you all excited for a free app only to ask you to pay after downloading to use it. Again great app idea but just say it’s not free rather then trick us poor iPhone users. Thanks...
By sarahelizabeth s
It couldn’t identify any of the plants in my friends yard. I had better luck googling “common weeds” and scrolling through a list of pictures. It couldn’t even identify her tomato plants! Then it continued my subscription even when I thought I cancelled. This was a waste of time, money, and energy.
Be sure you know how to cancel 1/5
By Addicted to pvsz
I wanted to identify 1 plant. Did it and deleted app but was billed $19.99 today. No way to get a refund. Won’t make that mistake again. I cancelled and if I get billed again next year there will be hell to pay.
The most precise app I have found in the entire App Store. Highly recommended.
Not upfront 1/5
Very disappointed that after only 4 or 5 shots, it no longer works, but instead wants me to buy the “premium” version. Didn’t realize this was a “trial version”. No thanks.
Wrong identification 3/5
I know a bit more than the basics when it comes to identifying plants, and I have to say that out of the couple dozen plants I wanted to identify almost 1/3 of them were wrong!!!! I tested my Theory with a plant I am 100% positive it’s a morning glory since I planted the seeds myself and this app told me it was a tomato, pumpkin or squash plant!!! It also misidentified my hydrangea bush as a weed. Not sure why I’m getting the wrong information but would like to see that fixed as much as possible for me to continue using this app!!!
Love this app ! 5/5
I am always trying to identify plants !! This app has a 100% success rate so far !!
