    I have taken around 25 photos of the plants in my area. This app can not identify a single one. Using IPhone 8+
  • Random guesses

    By missykissy64
    This is the first app I’ve ever paid for and the worst app I’ve ever had. Don’t waste your money my grandson knows the name of the flowers better than this app does and he’s 4.
  • Seems to be a social media tracker

    By I edit
    Won’t let you log in unless you use social media apps. Constantly locks you out with endless password requests that you have to trigger through Facebook or google. If you use only email to log in it will not remember you. I bought the premium and I still get ads. Don’t waste your money.
  • New to plant life

    By Chewy1207
    I was having and the table had a flower arrangement, I was able to PlantSnap. Great
  • No ID without internet connection

    By Latte lover99
    I am very disappointed that without internet connection, this app doesn’t work. That means if you’re hiking in the backcountry where there’s no internet, the app is useless.
  • Actually Identifies Plants. Great app!

    By myqtpie82
    This app so far is great. It’s actually identified the plants I've taken pictures off. I want to be able to identify plants when out in walks with my kid and now I can. I also like that it’s the one time price for the app and doesn’t have any additional or month fees to use. So far I’me very pleased.
  • New User

    By Grobert52
    Seems fairly early to use.
  • No Sharing or Developer Feedback

    By ucdscott
    No way to share the snaps in my collection or let the developer know that this is desired feature - not that they should have to be told.
  • Requiring an account for no reason

    By daverobeson
    At least, no reason for a user like me. Bought the app in November, just had occasion to use it yesterday and discovered I’d have to give them my email address. I just wanted to identify a plant, not establish a business relationship. Of course, I’m past the refund window.
  • Good but should use user id’s to improve AI

    By RevelRiderDL
    I bought this app mainly for fun since I know my plants. It’s great at identifying common houseplants but don’t expect it to differentiate between hundreds of types of palms, or cycads, or bananas. Particularly for groups of similar looking plants it’s not that good. I contacted them if I could help improve that app by identifying plants but they declined my offer.
  • Not worth the money

    By Tres734
    Not accurate on any of the plants I snapped. Touts sending to a live botanist when there is no match but one week later I never heard from anyone...a waste of $20
  • I’d like to see a flower garden planner

    By Imuser364
    It would be awesome to have a flower garden planning tool that integrates with this. I want to know what flowers will do great in my hardiness zone, how to plant them, maybe even a visualizer of my 3D space.
  • This app was awesome until it prompted me to register before use

    By liz010010001
    Seriously? I think registry is a good option for those that want to do it but forcing me to give up my email address in order to use the app is garbage. Without this I would’ve given it a five star.
  • Coastal NC

    By DianeJanieEyre
    I just took a picture of my camellia and plant snap thought it was a rose... soooo I’m not as enthusiastic as I was when I found this app... it could be so great!!! I have some wild daffodils coming up so let’s see what plant snap thinks they are!!
  • Green thumb

    By ryan9310
    Absolutely love this app!! Super useful when out hiking!!
  • Not accurate

    By azbaglady
    I am very disappointed in this app. Rarely does it even come close to proper identification.
  • Upgrades have made this a great app

    By RW48395
    I got this app a couple years ago and I found it slow and so-so in accuracy. It has upgraded itself and has become “really good “. It is fast now and very accurate. And the autoselect of flowers work great. Definitely a five star app now
  • Please remove login credentials

    By Polka-Dotz-18
    I purchased your app a while back. Now it requires an account to be created in order to be utilized. I don’t even keep free apps that want this information, and I don’t see why it’s necessary for me to give this in order to snap photos and get information on plants. It’s unfortunate that I can’t request a refund due to timing, as your change seems drastic and has totally removed functionality. Please reconsider or refund. Thank you.
  • Caution! Human, or plant database?

    By the OS og
    Just opened this app after purchasing it a few months ago, and it’s demanding I must register an email to use it. Why, why, why 🤬🤬🤬! Do not buy if you don’t feel you should HAVE to register an email to use an app that you purchased. Devs, you know adding registration as an option is always an option. Registration is not for the good of me if I’m not one to register, especially for a paid program. Furthermore, you should state this requirement at the top of your description in bold lettering as to not dupe any unsuspecting privacy conscious potential paying customers.
  • Wow!!

    By Msmnana
    I am so happy knowing what is growing in my yard. Love this app
  • Cool Concept

    By Noreiyeiga
    This app seems promising but doesn’t really identify well. I went on a hike and it gave me a bunch of different plants that I wasn’t sure if it was right or not. For fun, I took a picture of my dog and it identified him as some sort of mushroom.
  • Delighted!

    By Picture Elegance
    I’m delighted to see the old app logo back! The yellow added to the latest logo seemed odd. The app itself is exceptional! I use it frequently. It is worth the money.
  • Amazing and practical

    By Maysam b
    I use it regularly and pretty much satisfied with its results. Useful.
  • Remember me

    By Darin Simmer
    App requires login credentials upon launch, and doesn’t store to iOS keychain. The App Support link returns a 404 error. Please invest my $3.99 to correct one of these two basic functionalities.
  • App Hoax

    By Sean1001_122
    This app is aweful. Never was able to get an ID.
  • Enjoy the import info!!

    By Sue haase
    Love it can go around my yard identify Each plant
  • So much fun!

    By Natural_girl
    I downloaded this app to identify more native plants in central California and it’s so awesome! I have noticed that taking photos of the leaves instead of the flowers has made it more accurate. I love how the app also mentions whether the plant is edible or not and if there are any other uses.
  • Now that it’s called Pro...

    By nexus6man
    I have owned this app since it’s inception. I bought it and have enjoyed using it. Now that it is somehow called PlantSnap pro I am being forced to sign up to use an app that I paid for?!!?!?! Plantsnap has an email address for me why am I required to start a new one?!!?? What is going on?!
  • Ugly icon

    By nicknamechallengebeunique
    When i bought the app one thing i liked was the icon. It was a nice green color set off by some white. Now it has an ugly yellow strip at the bottom that says pro to remind me i paid money for the app. I don’t understand how anybody anywhere at anytime could ever consider that an improvement. Hopefully i can undo the update. If not I’ll uninstall. It’s a real eye sore.
  • Nice

    By jeggchso
    Good app
  • Unbelievable!

    By Kolby1969
    I spent almost exactly 1 year going through my yard, snapping photos and figuring out what the plant REALLY is because rarely did the 1st suggested return match what I photographed and now all the sudden “My Collection” is GONE! I had about 20 different things sorted out, saved and I frequently returned to “My Collection” to either remember the name of something or learn more about it and now it’s all gone....evidently because I updated my iPhone this was the cause because I did nothing differently except did a mandatory update to my disenchanting...
  • Why does this app need an email registration?

    By Ignatius_J_Reilly
    Pretty tired of apps like this that feel the need to harvest information from me. I can’t think of a good reason why I need to register at all. Deleted.
  • Great concept. Buggy execution, and usually wrong.

    By Frederick Bauman
    Unable to identify a common pothos vine. It’s NOT “devils ivy”!
  • A Delightful App

    By YokoshimaTanuki
    This app is absolutely phenomenal! I am currently working on my first year of plant studies in my high school botany-prep class, and this app works wonders! Yes, of course it is not 100% accurate, but then again, it removes all instances of human error, so the ONLY ways that it could mistake a plant would be that, for one, the photographer could be doing a not-so-great job at capturing the plant, or that the database has little instances of the plant. The only way to cure that? Continue to use the app! As thousands of people continuously take pictures of plants and post them here, looking for an answer to their questionable identification, the software will only get better! Practice makes perfect, of course, and no human botanist can start off naming every species of haworthia, so why expect that from a machine MADE by humans? Not everyone is perfect, nor is every software. No offense to the creator(s), of course, as I am sure they will agree. I am very grateful that this application was taken time on, perfected, and released in a finished state. Some apps of this nature cannot state the same, sadly. Again, thank you for spending the time to create this app, and, to all of you that doubt or slander this creation, give it a chance. It might just surprise you. 😉
  • Does not work most of the time

    By JimPuerto
    More than 50% of the time it incorrectly identifies the plant. When I send the pictures in to be identified I have never received feedback.
  • Oh Well!

    By Pattyoboe
    I thought this would be the answer to plant ID, but after getting some right it stopped correctly identifying things. I’ve never heard back when asking for help. I will go back to a Flickr group that helps as it is much more reliable. I wasted my money on this one.
  • Doesn’t seem to recognize anything!

    By D-Coup
    I’ve tried the app with several plants I didn’t know, and the app suggested things that didn’t match at all (the online pictures I found based on the PlantSnap suggestion did not remotely match the plant I was trying to identify). After failing several times to identify unknown plants, I started using the app to identify well-known plants, like lettuce and mint, just to see what would happen. It couldn’t identity those, either!🙁 Unfortunately, this purchase, though a cool idea, was a complete waste of money.
  • Do not waste time or money

    By Icachef
    Tried on six plants I have and know and not one was correct.
  • Cannot identify anything

    By SamM8642
    This App is waste of money and time. It can't identify any plants. Even when it gave accuracy of 90% it was wrong. It could not identify even well known fruits trees.
  • It works sometimes

    By geetuhferu8
    Plant Snap has helped only about five of ten times that I have used it. I feel that I submitted good pictures but sometimes its suggestions were obviously not correct.
  • Dead on

    By H town reader
    This is an amazing app if you tried to get to know plant his been dead I am every single time that I have used it so far
  • I live this app

    By Mr Beau
    I live to live this app
  • Not so accurate

    By Shortcakemm
    I have clicked on several plants and it was wrong, google knows more sorry:/
  • Misidentified

    By walkabouthawaii
    Could not identify eggplant or tomatoes
  • Plant Snap

    By Tax lady 2
    Wonderful concept but this app doesn’t have a clue how to identify plants. It has not properly identified any plants I have snapped or have on my camera already. Total waste of money.
  • PlantSnap

    By bonds joyce
    I’m very disappointed I’ve tried it on plants I know and it’s not even close. 3.99 wasted!
  • Great App

    By Viji Jay
    I love that I can identify plants
  • Worthless

    By PreVonWinter
    Almost never gets it right. In the rare correct guess, funnels you to specific vendors on Amazon that do not have the plant in question
  • Awesome
