Not accurate 2/5
I was so hopeful but tried it on a few plants in my garden - very common like sweet potato vine and all inaccurate
Very useful 5/5
By Rick's exercises
I use this all the time
So inaccurate as to be useless 1/5
By jwgd kcidvdb
I've tried a slew of leaves and blossoms of plants in Eastern New England, perfectly framed. This app has about a 10% hit rate and, when it's wrong, which is most of the time, it's wildly off. Even a novice like me can tell the result looks nothing like the actual picture i submitted. I even sent some photos through for identification; one came back correct, 2 others never got a response. Not worth the time to download.
Seldom accurate 1/5
When I first downloaded the app last year it actually gave me several accurate identifications. Since those initial successes, there have been none. It is never accurate.
Everything I search for they can’t find or they don’t know. Wish I could cancel and get my money back.

This app is very helpful, I enoy it lots!
Horrible app 1/5
I snapped every plant I have and it cannot correctly identify a single one of them. Took several really great pics too. I wish I could get my money back! What a waste.
Edit plant ID 4/5
The new edit function works well except that it doesn’t change the plant identification on the “My Collection” page. The picture still shows the incorrect name. Can you fix that?
No funciona como esperaba ,me arrepiento de haber gastado mi dinero en algo que hasta ahorita no ma ayudo en lo q nesecito
Great App 5/5
I found a plant growing in my backyard. This app identified it as a Castor Bean plant very poisonous to dogs! So immediately dug it up because my dog loves to eat plants.

Plant ID for dummies. This app is very easy to use.
Disappointed... Only 40% accuracy. 2/5
By One viewpoint
The concept is good, however upon purchasing the app, I decided to test the identification accuracy, & regrettably the app identified only 40% of the plants/flowers that I “snapped” in my garden & at a local garden center. I might accept this from a free app, but I expect much more from one that I pay for.
This is cool! 5/5
By Picture Nerd 497179
Very accurate and works with previously taken pictures as well.
No Good - Crap App. Wasted $3.99 1/5
By Lucky Afternoon
My wife loves flowers and wanted an app that would help identify all her flowers. This app missed most tries and when you touch the picture For more info, it consistently throws you out of the app. This would not be a big deal but it cost me upfront and doesn’t work. Wish I would’ve waited and tried another app.
Hey Siri 5/5
Hey Siri, what plant is that? 😏
An Amazing App Only Got Better With iOS 12 5/5
This app is one of the coolest uses for my iPhone. When I'm out on a hike, or around town, I can easily identify whatever plant is in front of me. With iOS 12 they made it even better with live plant detection, you no longer have to guess if you took the photo properly. Keep up the great work!
New App 2/5
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.
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! 5/5
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 🌱
By Biff Gardeneater
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 1/5
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 5/5
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 1/5
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 4/5
4 star bc I downloaded it 30 minutes ago.
Very weak on identifying herbs
Fake Plant ID app 1/5
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.
Wouldn’t identify my known plants correctly 1/5
I bought the app to identify some plants I bought from nursery but first I tested the app on some of my known plants and it was wrong every time. Very disappointing.
Fun but not accurate 2/5
I enjoy using this with my kids but it seems to yield random results. I’ve followed the instructions pretty closely and I’ve taken several pictures of the same plant on multiple occasions and I’ll submit 5 pictures of the same plant and it’ll often return 5 different results for example.
No luck! 1/5
I don’t know what I am doing wrong, but this app hasn’t hit it right yet! I’ve followed all directions, worked hard to get the best shots, and even with known plants, I’ve had zero success at correct plant identification!
Worst app 1/5
Inaccurate and can not identify the most common plants - save your money!
Doesn’t identify with as much accuracy as I’d hoped 3/5
Gave me not-even-close plants as a match
Don’t buy is only 3.99$ but multiplied for thousand and thousand of people is a good way to make money for an app that doesn’t work at all!!
Great app 5/5
Customer service great. I was not getting the app to load properly and they walked me through it. Photo results are accurate.
100% failure 1/5
After several attempts to identify plants in a garden, this app incorrectly named every plant I tried this on. Horrible app
Don’t like it 1/5
Hard to figure out how to use it. Ugh
best concept 5/5
I honestly love the concept of this app and wouldnt want anything but sucess for the company, but it has been inaccurate with all my plant pictures. (yes i took clear pics of them).
Doesn’t work - unresponsive 5/5
This app has great potential, however, it simply does not work on my iPhone X running iOS 12. I just bought the app and after opening it and flipping through the good and bad photo samples, none of the links or buttons respond to touch. I’ve deleted, reinstalled it, restarted the iPhone and nothing changes.
Terrible! Won’t even get to the ‘register’ screen to allow me to use the app. Refund please.
Does not recognize garden plants or wild plants 1/5
My husband loves to ask me “what kind of plant/tree/flower is that?” I was thrilled to find this app. It has yet to identify even one plant/tree/flower for me. I started trying it on plants I know and it can’t identify one of them, let alone those I find in the wild. It is basically useless.
Don’t waste your money 1/5
I wanted it to take hiking with me, so I could have my Cub Scouts able to use it on simple plants like poison ivy. It’s not one thing I took a picture of it and get it right.
By Done drinking
Great idea but it doesn’t always figure it out, even when it appears obvious to me. Please keep working on it!
Landscape architect here ... this is useless 1/5
By Flock fail
Soooo I figured “this might help on hikes!” I look for a lot of native plants and enjoy learning more about the plants I don’t know yet... I did some control tests with this guy using a few of the plants in my own planting’s... first try: (remember I’m in ny) I take a photo of a hawthorn ... it recommends a banana tree. Ok that’s a tough one and it’s a bonsai so maybe it’s not perfect. Try 2: let’s try a yew that’s ok training it’s a really common plant that grows all over the world..... wait what is this... also a tropical plant!? Try 3: ok so this one is easy I mean super easy , only want it to get the try of plant right. I’m looking for a evergreen ID ... I take a photo of a larch (looks like a evergreen but isn’t) drum roll! It’s a cactus apparently! That’s right a 4ft tall weeping tree is a dwarf cactus.... this is useless , well for entertainment it has a use but save they money and buy a plant book.
Pretty Good 3/5
It's been able to identify some of the plants very quickly and accurately, but there have also been a number of times that it hasn't found the plant at all. Generally with a little bit of extra searching you're able to find it easily enough.
By Sherrie Rae
It’s got about 3 out of 15 right! And it doesn’t know what a redbud tree is!
Plant Snap Review 1/5
I give it one star for being wrong on 2 out of 2 times on common plants.
Does not work. 1/5
By Emma Jay L
Awful app. Every time I used it, it was never right. I would take multiple pictures of the same plant and would give me a different answer every time and never the right answer. Very disappointed.
Don’t buy it 1/5
By peewee 2.0
I’ve had it for like 4 days and used it on about 30 plants and it hasn’t been close once
Not accurate so far 2/5
Disappointed. Started with plants I already know, and it didn’t even list them as suggestions! Had to manually enter the names for them to pop up. Will update if it gets better.
Horticulture degree in You Hand... 5/5
I love Horticulture & Entomology!
So whenever I’m out hunting insects I have PlantSnap App in hand as well. Helping to document the plants I find insects on really helps me to I.D. many of those bugs much quicker. I’ve been raising Praying mantis from around the world for six years now. Taking them into schools to help teach kids about mantis and their part in nature. Now I’m using the PlantSnap App in me class demos, show kids, teacher & parents how easy it is to I.D. Plants anywhere they go...
Interesting to learn about flowers and plants!
