  • This is so cool

    By Evanthehorticulturist
    It has gotten every plant I have tested it with right. Ten out of ten.
  • Great app

    By cwanda
    Like the ability to sort of network with plants - learn names of say 3 new plants per day. Sorry to say it is easy to get out of touch with plants in everyday urban life. Thankfully this works well, say 6 times out of 10, which is fine.
  • Helps quash invasives

    By sirpicante
    I bought this app to help identify a wild plant growing in my yard and immediately learned it was an invasive weed (goathead), so I cleared my garden out immediately (and the neighbor’s) before the flowers were able to bear fruit. Looking forward to lots more exciting discoveries with this app.
  • Worth about what they charge for it!

    By Toomuchpolitics
    Not user friendly. Works poorly with any existing plant photo. Accurate about 20% of time. I have deleted it. Great concept. Lacking.
  • Don’t bother

    By 🤬😡😱😭
    Hey, I know a TON of plants. Tried to use this on several I didn’t know. Complete piece of S—- So sorry I wasted my money.
  • Can’t wait for it to grow!

    By gaialogue
    I’m so grateful for the the response to my identify and I’m having a lot of fun with this app! I think the algorithm could use some growth there have been 3 out of about 7 identities that were not a match. But I’m still really enjoying it.
  • Was not reliable

    By grumpygary
    I had high hopes for this app, but it failed miserably. I would take pictures, and it would consistently give me results way out in left field. I would take a picture of a tree leaf, and get a recommendation of a tropical plant. Even common plants were misidentified. I deleted the app as worthless.
  • Could be a lot better

    By CRLX2
    Bought the app hoping to help catalog all the plants we see that we would like to have in our yard. Followed the directions watched the videos more then once. It’s nice but needs more fine tuning. It also only gives you a suggestion of what it possibly is. Was hoping it would... I don’t know.... tell me exactly what it was.
  • Review

    By Plantdiva
    This app is so much fun. I started out identifying plants I already knew to check it’s accuracy. Spot on! Now I’m learning the local plants where I hike.
  • Surprisingly useless

    By Wyndnight
    This app was supposed to be a helpful tool for my garden and love of nature. It turned out to be a time sink that never once identified a plant correctly. Yes I followed the instructions and watched all the videos. Not a single accurate match, for example I know its a pine tree but what kind is what I need to know. All right so the app maybe needed to learn or my picture wasn’t ‘good enough’ so I referred all my plant pictures to the developer - its an option. I figured this will at least get me an answer.... sadly after two weeks i never received a reply. I really wouldn’t waste your time with this app. I will be getting a refund. 8/16/18 still no promised refund after several attempts. Purchase at your risk.
