App Reviews

  • Amazing App for any plant lover!

    By djkdjk2
    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 🌱
  • A little bit of patience is all you need!

    By Nsksnskdbsjsnenek
    This app is truly amazing, despite it not always providing an EXACT match every single time. No two plants look exactly the same, but this app provides more than one result, and from the other options, you can find other plants in the same family, look that up in the search icon, and you can narrow your results down quite easily and soon find your plant! It’s almost IMPOSSIBLE to get your exact match by just snapping a picture and that’s not the apps fault necessarily because the diversity in plants is just too wide for any database to pinpoint an exact match first time around, but it does give you many different approaches to finding your plant in the end. All it takes is a little patience:) As for a suggestion towards the future update to improve the app’s function, I wish that there was a way that you could add plants to your collection from what you search in the search bar. I would love to document all of my plants in my collection, even the ones that I already know the names of, but I have to go through the process of taking a picture, suggesting a name, and then finding my plant and adding it that way. It’s not the end of the world, but I would still love for that to be a new feature!
  • Great reference app!

    By Montana Tim
    I was kinda skeptical at first... I got this app after a bad two weeks of poison ivy. The videos and tutorials have helped me make sure my success rate with the algorithm stays high- big thanks for that! As I continue to “collect” new flowers and plants that grow on my property, I’m really enjoying the fun info and feeling like I have a botanist in my pocket at all times. I would recommend for future updates: 1) mushroom and fungus descriptions to know if it’s safe for eating raw, cooking, is hallucinogenic, or deadly. The idea of knowing what’s edible out there from dandelions to whitecap mushrooms would be really cool to capture and enjoy. 2) augmented reality... live video collecting various plants and flowers, and the algorithm can be focused to know its a location based collection, so there’s no overseas plants, etc which could aid in faster live identification. This could also help see where poison ivy, poison oak, or various toxic plants are. I could see some sort of game of collecting or helping identify could help you collect points, and redeem them to have someone plant a tree... idk. Great app! Thanks!
  • App has potential. But it can be difficult to use.

    By unusualgirl913830
    Surprised to see that the app developers are pretty aggressive and unyielding to criticism based on the way they respond to unsatisfied customers here. This app has potential but it’s not very user friendly. If I want to identify something, it makes me redo the picture many times and I just end up getting frustrated. I understand the requirements for the picture. (To the app developers who will respond to my review, I don’t need a lesson on the rules of how the picture should look) You would think that it’d be easy to use but it’s really not. And a lot of the time, I just end up with very limited results. Again, that’s probably my fault for not taking the picture within the parameters that the app clearly explains. But I didn’t realize it would be so hard to master and that it would give such inconsistent results. I regret my purchase. It’s too late now. But hopefully the app will improve. For now, I find that I’m better off googling a description of what the plant looks like instead of using this app. Maybe that’s my fault but I can’t be that much different than the typical target consumer.
  • Terrible APP. Building a database on your dollars

    By plantfail
    I have loved mother nature since I began camping at age one. I followed that tradition with my daughter, taking her camping at the same age. I have grown up identifying the natural world using nature books on every conceivable aspect of nature; animal tracks, bird books, mammal books, identifying rocks, identifying scat, identifying scat, and the list goes on. Despite being fairly knowledgeable on all subjects nature this looked like a fun addition to have handy as I strolled around my neighborhood or the woods. Since purchasing this app five days ago I have sent in six pictures, none of which are blurry, out of focus, have bad lighting, etc for their identification purposes, as per their own instructional video on how to present your pictures. Their identification of my snap pics have been something that has the same color or might be in the same family, leaving the identification up to the color or the leaf shape. Their response to me after failing to identify these six snaps is that I am doing it wrong, I am uploading my snap wrong. If you notice that’s the response to virtually everyone that has a bad review here. Don’t waste your money this app is being presented too early. Wait a year for them to build their database.
  • It only guesses at the answer

    By OTR-Fan
    Fair to poor performance, don’t waste your dollars. I love flowers, take many photo’s, aspecially close ups of single blooms. Even the best in my photo library only returns a 67% "probability". Then it’s asking you if you accept or reject their "guess" (and that’s all it is)! If I knew what it was, I wouldn’t need the app! The supposed point of this app is for IT to tell YOU what the plant/flower is, not the other way around, simply not ready for any App Store. They’re collecting your data and guesses to TRY to improve their app. Essentially you’re paying them to beta test their software. I said it before and I’ll repeat it now. This is a botanical version of Vivino. Why can that app use a photo of a wine bottle label taken in poor low light conditions and return correctly 99% of the time, yet this app can’t seem to rise above a 67% guess? Read all the other reviews, most people are having similar issues and problems. The responses from "customer support" for these other complaints is a repetitious, Steve Jobs sounding "you’re doing it wrong". It’s not rocket science, it’s just a poor app. Steer clear.
  • It’s a great start

    By mouseling
    I really enjoy this app. I have recently gotten interested in gardening and collecting houseplants, and have inherited several plants made from cuttings from family members, or bought discounted plants with no name from the hardware store. I’ve been trying to carefully choose appropriate plants for my home, and this app has helped me identify every no-name mystery plant I’ve stumbled upon. I will say the app has only worked on the first try maybe once or twice. When I’m trying to identify a plant, I usually have to try snapping a photo from a few different angles before eventually it gets me the correct suggestion. It also has rarely given me the right plant name as the “most likely” suggestion, but I usually find it by viewing the other possible plant types. I’m assuming that as more people use the app and the database grows, that the app will get smarter. At least I hope it will! Either way, it has been really useful for now and I’m happy to support the developer in the hopes that they will keep making the app better and smarter.
  • Nice app

    By Gottagojoe
    I was sitting on my deck this morning looking at a couple of plants I have and said I wish there was an app to snap and identify a plant. Somehow this app popped up and I figured it’s worth a try after reading both good and bad reviews. So far it has properly identified both of the plants I snapped. I went into my garden and snapped a few more plants. Yes one time it couldn’t identify so I backed up a bit and it did work just fine. I’m sure there will be quirks from time to time (nothing is perfect) but it beats trying to search from pics online. Fast and accurate. I snapped a pic of my Virginia creeper and gave me several choices, one being poison ivy. The second choice was correct. I like that because so many plants have similar foliage. This app is awesome. I’m not sure why some people have had problems. I’m using an iPhone 7plus. Well worth the 4bucks $$
  • Super particular

    By divinewill
    This app sounds great - until you try it out. I had photos (cropped and zoomed per the demo) of 4 plants, out of which it properly identified only one - the pansy, because of its particular shape probably. The rest had more of the round traditional shape with lots of petals - and no matter how many angles I tried all I got was “rose”... in the case of kalanchoe, I sent in the photo of my plant to the customer support and they were able to get it identified - yet it took me 7 tries (!!!) of all different angles, zoomed in and out, foliage or not , to get to their result - and even then I had to take a pic of the EXACT same flower cluster at that same angle to do it. None other clusters seemed to be the same plant I guess?? Then they tell me it’s user error and it’s not eligible for refund - which at this point it’s not about the 4 bucks at all, it’s about the customer support and understanding. They were quick to get back to me, but the answers just were not helpful at all. Super frustrating.
  • A great app to identify plants!

    By Shcavok
    So I’ve had my eye on the app for awhile, 4.99 is steep and the reviews can be intimidating.. And so with it being on sale for back to school I decided, why not! The concept is awesome, I had a few photos of plants that I have not been able to identify VIA other apps, and this one got it first try. And it does work off a database, (more users, more info) but it also gives you the option in app to send the snap to their botonist, and/or an option to search via google, which I think is the coolest part! You can save what you’ve snapped to look back at. The one problem I do have.. the app is very slow for me. I have a good WiFi connection at my house, where I’ve been first trying the app, and even on my LTE I’m on a “loading” screen for a few minutes. Even toggling between my collection, explore and snap it loads for a few minutes. That’s my only complaint so far!
