  • Still needs some updates but really like it so far Jan 31, 2021

    I really like how this app is looking so far! I love the reminders and the ability to take cute notes and even photos of my plants. Obviously there is a lot of plants out there so there is still much work to be done in updating the database but there are many common plants available. It would be cool if we could send in plant photos with their common and botanical names to be reviewed for the possibility to be added to the database or to update photos of an already existing one as some of the photos don’t seem to match too well. Especially for the plants that have multiple cultivars. I think it would also be nice if we could move the plant tabs in our “garden” to organize them or put them in outside and inside sections. Dear developers, thank you for your hard work. As I continue to use the app is there a place for me to submit feedback?
  • Nice-looking app, works well for setting watering and other care reminders Mar 22, 2021

    I saw an Instagram ad for this app and I love the interface and design, and I definitely need something to remind me to water my plants. However, the ID by photo feature doesn’t work at all. I take a picture and the app just sits there on the search screen. I know what most of my plants are so it isn’t a huge deal but I have a few that I got unlabeled and the search functionality beyond the photo ID leaves a lot to be desired (it would be great to be able to filter by, say, leaf shape). (EDIT: The developer suggested I update the app, and the photo ID feature is working now, although I would still like an expanded search functionality). I also cannot figure out a way to edit existing notifications. I accidentally set one for 5:30 AM instead of PM and can see no way to change that. There’s no edit button that I can find, and the help page is useless unless you’re looking for info about the plant ID feature or info about the subscription. (EDIT: The developer replied to me with an explanation of how to edit the notifications, so this complaint is moot!) I do, however, really like that I can check off that I watered it, and that I can add photos and notes in the app, and I love how nicely organized and easy to read the info for each plant is.

    I just downloaded and subscribed to this app for 50% off. I really like that I can add the plants that I have to the “My Garden” section. I wish there were more plants to choose from to add to the “My Garden” section (I couldn’t find some simple basic plants in the list) or a place we could add our own plants for those not listed. For example, I have Roma tomatoes and it is not available in the “My Garden” section when I want to add it to my collection and I can’t manually add it either. I do like the feature of this app in which each plant I do add gives a lot of description on how to water, info on pests, soil, sun, and much more. I really like that you can set your own reminders of when to water each plant (it gives suggestions) and it breaks the schedule down by day for which plant needs to be watered when. In the informational article section, there is no search tab, which I was very surprised with. I hope there will be some updates in the future to this app and I look forward to using the helpful info I do find in the articles by just scrolling. I’m excited to learn from the information provided about each plant in the “My Garden” section in the app and the watering schedule and reminders.

    Not Free, The very first thing it tried was to get me to subscribe to a plan for 19.99 monthly. After I kinda jumped around that it did let me search for my plant, and it was dead on accurate to the plant species I took the photo of. We will see where it goes from here, I will update this review. If theres no update then things are the same, still searching, still accurate. :) I won't subscribe with all the knowledge online, why would I?
  • Great and easy to use app with lots of potential May 24, 2021

    By jlsanford88
    I love this app so far. The reminders that can be set for watering, repotting, etc are so useful to a new plant dad like myself. The information on the pants is great for care and understanding more and I it’s great that it even tells you how much light is required. 4 stars because I believe there are 2 or 3 features that should be worked in to make this app even more robust. 1) Plant disease identification and treatment tips. As a new owner I still don’t know a lot by memory or what to search for so this feature would be great. 2) I’m realizing that adding multiples of the same plant, even if it’s just different subspecies, isn’t really feasible. Unless I haven’t figured it out, functionality for easy set up of multiple reminders for different plants would be amazing. 3) Is it possible to build in a function that uses our phones to measure light in FCs/foot candles? I have a meter myself but that function within this app would be amazing and I didn’t see any apps in the store that did that reliably when I searched. Great job, keep it up! Looking forward to continued use and future updates.

    It's a good idea and Lllayout is easy to follow, and the identification is good. I installed this app to ensure I don't over water my plants, for the amount of plants I have I had to pay a lot monthly.
  • I like this app....but Jun 28, 2020

    By tee-biscuits
    I like that the app lets you track watering fertilizing and repoting the plant. You can enter a plant by name or with your camera. Many of plants it identifies has information about the care of the plant. Some things I don’t love and would like to see changed. Some plants are not in the app database and there does not appear to be a away to add them so you can put their care in your schedule. I had to add them under another plant name and rename them, but then the other plant is pictured instead of mine. It stores the pictures taken to identify the plant, I wish it would let you update the pictures of your plants as time goes by/you get a better picture. The only way I can see is to enter the whole plant again. If you own more then one type of the same plant it is difficult to differentiate them other then renaming (I own 3 types of snake plants but they are all entered under the same plant). Lastly some of the plant info and care instructions is pretty sparse a paragraph or less that gives no care info just a description of the plant.

    Love this app, it identified all of the plants I've taken a photo of and it seems very accurate. The only downside I have is that you have to subscribe monthly/annually. I would gladly pay $3-5 usd for this app as a one time fee, I just can't get behind paying a monthly subscription. Plus, I'm only home six months out of the year, no way I'm paying for six months where I cannot use it.

    I recently downloaded this app and I have not regretted my decision at all. I am a succulent nerd and I got an aloe very last summer. It started to wilt and die I got really worried because it’s my favorite plant and I did not know what to do until I saw the add for this app in tv and it changed my plant crisis! You can take the worst picture on the planet and it will still find your plant this works for flowers and succulents! I LOVE this app it also shows pictures of type of your plant for example my aloe. There’s a red aloe I did not know existed, and I found the exact type of aloe I have. The aloe I currently have is a soap aloe! I highly recommended this app you will never regret it I promise!😍😍🤩🤯♥️❤️

    I am obsessed with this app and rave about it to everyone. It is so useful and has helped me really get to know my plants better. I feel like I can take much better care of them because of all the information that Blossom provides! The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because there have been several times where the app either does not have the plant I am looking for. I have submitted one of them to the app for review so their plant library can expand but haven’t heard back yet. It has only been a few days, so I am excited to see it appear on the app. In addition to this, I have found that the app combines species together. For example, under “calathea spp” it has zebra plant, peacock plant, and rattlesnake plant, whose botanical names are calathea zebrina, calathea makoyana, and calathea lancifolia, respectively. Overall, I think this app is 100% worth the subscription, but I hope that the plant library increases and becomes more organized.

    Great idea, I just wish the app worked as it's supposed to, especially at $20 a year. It stopped showing me reminder notifications, which is the whole reason I got this app in the first place. On top of that, it doesn't show you what you missed the day before if you happen to forget. You used to be able to look ahead and tell if you missed something by going back from the next reminder, but now it doesn't go more than 3 days in the future. There are also no settings, help, or contact information

    Yes, you are sorry for the possible misunderstanding, but you are not doing anything. When the application is installed and opened, the menu offers 2 options: subscription and free trial. It does not show the option that it can be used for free. Unfortunately, it is not user friendly. Now I see it can be used for free but late, the app is already uninstalled. Sorry for misunderstanding.

    I have only been using this app for maybe 5 minutes before this "rate this app" screen came up, and so far I am not thrilled --before I had a chance to take a picture of any plants in the garden it tried to sell me it's $19.99 yearly fee it charges to get unlimited snap shots of plants a day at the discounted price of $10.00. (that scream has popped up multiple times) So I can only assume they are very pushy. --it miss identified the vegetable I had grown from a seedling all 3 times.

    I mistakenly did the year subscription instead of the free trial, & first plant I tried to get info on doesn't pop up. I type it in. Not in their system. The entire reason I got the app was because one of my Green Spire euonymus is dying, yet this app doesn't have any info on it. Advertising "take a pic & we'll tell you what it is", but then providing the wrong plant information isn't helpful.
  • Deceptive Jul 13, 2020

    By Trish PB
    I got this because it came up when I searched for a free app. I needed help identifying only 1 plant. When I went through the steps to download it, there was nothing that came up that said there was a fee associated with the app. I seem to remember it mentioning that there was an option to sign up for a yearly subscription, which I didn’t need or want. When searching on the app after downloading, there wasn’t a tab that showed my account info, my payment history/info, or that I signed up for a subscription, so I assumed it was ok to use. I only stumbled upon the email today when logging into my college email that I use for my Apple account. They sent an email about a free 3-day trial before being charged for a subscription. Any app I’ve had that cost something has a way to see what I signed up for within the app. This is ridiculously deceptive and costly. The developers knew exactly what they were doing when they set this up. Let’s see if I get the refund I requested...

    Not worth your money. Not only is the identification succes rate very sparse, you'll be forced to use the premium version without free option and remibder don't add anything at all. The whole purpose is to identify your plants, provide info and to remind you to water/pot the plant. Reminders don't even have a notification, so you need to make an effort to get into the app, go into you reminders which defeats the whole purpose of reminders? Bad app flow. Better apps are out there.
  • Poor database and too frequent watering reminders Mar 23, 2021

    By suziblue725
    I purchased this app for a year, and I really wish I could’ve done a trial beforehand. It does keep a list of your plant, but you have to modify most of them from their identification database. It doesn’t recognize any varieties of plants - basic ones that you see frequently these days. For example all of my philodendron are just classified as philodendron. Some of the photo IDs are just funny, but way off. Still have to utilize other apps as this is one of the worst. Also I like the reminders and how they are easy to add, but I am received the watering reminders too frequently, based upon their recommendations - which if I followed them it would cause all my plants root rot. Please improve your app!! I like the interface and the look/feel of the app. You really need to look at the plant ID feature and the watering recommendations.

    My opinion about this app is that it is very inefficient First of all, you can take a total of three photos and after that nothing can be done, you can not even upgrade the app for more photos Second, it does not accurately detect some plants Third, the app has only one language and the program language can not be changed
  • Jun 6, 2021

    By Jorge Gutierrez
    Really not worth this much money. All it does is remind you of when to water plants. Also very unhappy that the free trial automatically defaulted to the premium annual subscription instead of the monthly so they charge you for a full year with no possible refund. Would recommend to avoid this app.

    I took four pictures from the exact angle every time and it gave me four different plant identifications and none of them could possibly be right. It is a common house plant and it gave me crazy stuff. USELESS. 🙄

  • Blossom is awesome Feb 18, 2021

    By Planted and Confused
    I am new to plant parenthood. With that said, there’s literally a MILLION different sites and social media platforms with people and articles that all claim to have “tips and tricks” or “myth busting” info, which just makes things all the more confusing. Blossom helps compile information and also tells you what is relevant for my area and types of plants I have. The date base can kinda limited, but a quick google search and you can enter in the correct Latin name of your plant and find a GOLD MINE of concise care tips. I’d recommend Blossom to other newbies like myself.

    Love it! I do not ever write app reviews. I had to for this one and I even paid the premium for the year. As a non green thumb natured person who wants to keep plants alive and be a gardener this app is amazing. I can track all my plants and know lots of details on them, origins, and care tips. I tried several, ok like 10 other apps and none had all my plants. This also has a easy photo option to search your plant for the ones I had gifted and had no name or clue. Seriously thank you so much!

    I'm terrible with plants, but this app has helped a lot! The plant identification works well and the instructions are clear and useful. The one thing I wish it could do was replace/archive the pictures of your existing plants so you could have a record of their growth :)

For example, under “calathea spp” it has zebra plant, peacock plant, and rattlesnake plant, whose botanical names are calathea zebrina, calathea makoyana, and calathea lancifolia, respectively. Overall, I think this app is 100% worth the subscription, but I hope that the plant library increases and becomes more organized.
  • What am I paying for?? Aug 31, 2020

    By SOЛЯРИS
    The idea of the app is great, and I was so excited to get it. Then, of course, they tell you that you have to pay. I paid $30 per year, which is not too much, but still. Now, the last several plants that I added to “My garden” have no description whatsoever, but the link that directs you to the Wikipedia. There is no place to add you notes for each plant (like when you bought it, when it’s time to repot, etc). There is a reminder to water. That is all. If I have to go to Wikipedia to read about my plants and have a separate file on my phone with all the notes, the question is: WHAT AM I PAYING FOR? UPDATE: I have to update my review and give the app 4 stars. There is a room for an improvement still. However, Right after I submitted my review the update came out which mostly addressed the issues I was not happy with. Keep up the good work. Look forward to more fun features!

    I love the app super helpful and my plants are loving being on a watering schedule. I gave 4 stars because of the recent update, every time I hit complete it asks me to add a note. I appreciate the update, but I don't like having to remove the message Everytime I water a plant.
  • Plant care Apr 11, 2021

    By sarah2day
    This app has very nice calming design. The plant search feature is handy as well but I have a lot of plants and I do find it a little annoying that I will get separate notifications for each plant on the same day...at the same time to water them. It would be nice if it recognized that there are multiple plants to water and send only 1 notification. So I’ll delete some, but while I was tying to do that, there are to many steps to delete a watering schedule, which I found frustrating and almost deleted to app because it seamed easier then hunting for the delete watering schedule. Also, maybe this is just me but I would like there to be some form of Home Screen... or home button. Pretty nice app though but maybe not $20 a year nice
  • Good overall, but needs improvement May 25, 2021

    By kimplanter
    I really like how you can add multiple photos for each plant and write notes. I wish I was able to customize the layout of my garden. For example, instead of having it all listed, it would be nice if I could have a thumbprint photo of each plant or be able to organize them based on location. I do like the wishlist function! The plant care reminder is helpful. Although I mostly use the app to learn more about my plants and keep track of their growth. One thing I really wish I could do on the app is to bookmark certain articles/blogs that are posted under explore. Some of the articles are really useful and it would be great to be able to easily reference back to certain ones.

    Not Free, The very first thing it tried was to get me to subscribe to a plan for 19.99 monthly. After I kinda jumped around that it did let me search for my plant, and it was dead on accurate to the plant species I took the photo of. We will see where it goes from here, I will update this review. If theres no update then things are the same, still searching, still accurate. :) I won't subscribe with all the knowledge online, why would I?
  • Jun 13, 2021

    By Jenesse Ellis
    It's a good idea and Lllayout is easy to follow, and the identification is good. I installed this app to ensure I don't over water my plants, for the amount of plants I have I had to pay a lot monthly.
  • I like this app....but Jun 28, 2020

    By tee-biscuits
    I like that the app lets you track watering fertilizing and repoting the plant. You can enter a plant by name or with your camera. Many of plants it identifies has information about the care of the plant. Some things I don’t love and would like to see changed. Some plants are not in the app database and there does not appear to be a away to add them so you can put their care in your schedule. I had to add them under another plant name and rename them, but then the other plant is pictured instead of mine. It stores the pictures taken to identify the plant, I wish it would let you update the pictures of your plants as time goes by/you get a better picture. The only way I can see is to enter the whole plant again. If you own more then one type of the same plant it is difficult to differentiate them other then renaming (I own 3 types of snake plants but they are all entered under the same plant). Lastly some of the plant info and care instructions is pretty sparse a paragraph or less that gives no care info just a description of the plant.

    By Nick Mathis
    Love this app, it identified all of the plants I've taken a photo of and it seems very accurate. The only downside I have is that you have to subscribe monthly/annually. I would gladly pay $3-5 usd for this app as a one time fee, I just can't get behind paying a monthly subscription. Plus, I'm only home six months out of the year, no way I'm paying for six months where I cannot use it.
  • Snooze please May 23, 2021

    By jul the crazy plant lady
    I rarely purchase apps. This was an exception as I have a ton of plants and needed to get them organized. I’ve used this for a month or so now and my biggest frustration is that the suggested watering schedules don’t match my plants. Fine. I create custom schedules. But this can take some time to figure out. It would be SO helpful to have a snooze option and remind you in a couple of days to check again! Or some way to mark if you choose to skip a watering. One question - reminders have times attached. Does anyone really care what time they water? This might be why people mentioned multiple reminders each day. I know I was getting them until I went into each plant and synced it for the same time. Keep up the good work. It must take a crazy lot of time to put an app like this together. I use it every day!
  • Jun 9, 2021

    By Brittany Stapleton
    Great idea for an app. I love the photo galleries and treatment for problems. However, this can get buggy when it comes to reminders. I can mark a plant watered, but the app will forget that and mark it overdue. Would love to see this fixed on Android.
  • Jun 14, 2021

    By Cracey Thristopher
    Great idea, I just wish the app worked as it's supposed to, especially at $20 a year. It stopped showing me reminder notifications, which is the whole reason I got this app in the first place. On top of that, it doesn't show you what you missed the day before if you happen to forget. You used to be able to look ahead and tell if you missed something by going back from the next reminder, but now it doesn't go more than 3 days in the future. There are also no settings, help, or contact information
  • Poor database and too frequent watering reminders Mar 23, 2021

    By suziblue725
    I purchased this app for a year, and I really wish I could’ve done a trial beforehand. It does keep a list of your plant, but you have to modify most of them from their identification database. It doesn’t recognize any varieties of plants - basic ones that you see frequently these days. For example all of my philodendron are just classified as philodendron. Some of the photo IDs are just funny, but way off. Still have to utilize other apps as this is one of the worst. Also I like the reminders and how they are easy to add, but I am received the watering reminders too frequently, based upon their recommendations - which if I followed them it would cause all my plants root rot. Please improve your app!! I like the interface and the look/feel of the app. You really need to look at the plant ID feature and the watering recommendations.
  • It’s Okay Jan 27, 2021

    By FantabulousnessO_o
    I downloaded the app out of curiosity but deleted after day two (I would be billed for the subscription after the third day). The theme is very aesthetically pleasing and I think it did a good job of plant identification. It helps having the extra pictures provided when you are trying to identify your plant. The reminders are useful but the information about each plant varies, some have barely any information and some have very detailed descriptions and care advice. Overall not worth the money for how little you get. I already have a reminders app on my phone and the notes app for detailed information I need and the app doesn’t really offer much of value in addition. Having reminders and notes in one place would be nice but it’s just not convenient enough for $6 a month.
  • Reminders not working Jul 28, 2020

    By WTFluckey
    Reminders aren’t working anymore. I had been using them for weeks to keep track of my plant care and for the most part, everything was good. However I checked the app earlier today, saw that I had 4 plants that I forgot to water yesterday, so they were overdue and I completed them. Other than those overdue reminders, the app showed no other reminders for today. Later in the day, I got notifications for new plants that needed watered today AND reminders to water the 4 overdue plants again tomorrow (they are on a 7-day watering cycle so this doesn’t make sense). Now I cannot rely on the reminders to know when I need to do things and I don’t feel confident that the app is tracking things correctly. Going back to keeping track with pen and paper :(
  • May 31, 2021

    By Lucas R. King
    Very nice app, but please don't lock the feature of ID-ing plants behind a pay wall. I would be willing to have the app use adds for monetisation instead, lockin the the basic fubction of the app to only be used a few times per day for those who don't spend money is just a very frustrating way to go about it
  • I WANT to love this app but... Apr 11, 2021

    By sakpu
    I bought this app after my mom died to try to keep her plants alive. It works great except once you set watering reminders, and click Complete when you have watered, the next day it will un-click that and make it look like you forgot to water your plants. I overwatered one or two because I couldn’t remember if I forgot to water it or if the app was just screwing up. I now realized that almost every day, you have to re-click complete on the last few days of watering just so the app knows it has been done. Also, It might work for a few days pretty good then all of a sudden I have 30 notifications that my plants watering is overdue... because all the waterings have been marked as incomplete. It completely defeats the purpose of the app.
  • Pretty interface but lacking in many ways Jun 1, 2021

    By motherofaudreys
    I probably will not pay for this app a second year. Aesthetically it is quite pleasing, but it lacks several things I consider vital to a good plant app: 1) I use this app largely for care reminders. There is no “snooze” button for reminders so if a plant isn’t quite ready to be watered I have to re-do its schedule to reflect how many more days I think it’ll need before sufficiently dry, or let overdue reminders pile up, which leads me to my second issue.... 2) Far as I can tell, there is no way to “break out” piled up overdue reminders. I can only see one on top of the virtual stack, and if I want to remind myself which other plants I need to be monitoring daily for water I have to clean that too overdue reminder. 3) This is a complaint I have with most pant apps, but it seems pronounced on Blossom - the plant ID function is incredibly limited. Even searching by name doesn’t yield results most of the time - the ID DB doesn’t have a Ficus Audrey, for instance. So it’s quite limited there. If any of the features I’ve mentioned as lacking actually are available on the app I have not been able to find them.
  • Seems good, but… May 5, 2021

    By OldHat59
    So far it’s giving me 99% accuracy. Only giving it two stars because I’m sick and tired of being told that the notifications are off every single time I open the app! It’s off because I don’t care about hearing about other plants! It would be a lot better if I only got the notifications that I wanted. I seriously doubt I’ll be renewing the subscription. There is another one that’s a lot friendlier. I might end up taking away another star or two, because I hate being bullied!!! (UPDATE) Down to 2 ⭐️⭐️’s. Since you keep annoying me with telling me that notifications is off, I have to put the word out that Plant IDs got you beat on identification. I will also add that at least you’re cheaper in price for subscription.
  • May 30, 2021

    By Marko Andrić
    Yes, you are sorry for the possible misunderstanding, but you are not doing anything. When the application is installed and opened, the menu offers 2 options: subscription and free trial. It does not show the option that it can be used for free. Unfortunately, it is not user friendly. Now I see it can be used for free but late, the app is already uninstalled. Sorry for misunderstanding.

    I have only been using this app for maybe 5 minutes before this "rate this app" screen came up, and so far I am not thrilled --before I had a chance to take a picture of any plants in the garden it tried to sell me it's $19.99 yearly fee it charges to get unlimited snap shots of plants a day at the discounted price of $10.00. (that scream has popped up multiple times) So I can only assume they are very pushy. --it miss identified the vegetable I had grown from a seedling all 3 times.
  • Jun 5, 2021

    By Melissa Holdredge
    I mistakenly did the year subscription instead of the free trial, & first plant I tried to get info on doesn't pop up. I type it in. Not in their system. The entire reason I got the app was because one of my Green Spire euonymus is dying, yet this app doesn't have any info on it. Advertising "take a pic & we'll tell you what it is", but then providing the wrong plant information isn't helpful.
  • Deceptive Jul 13, 2020

    By Trish PB
    I got this because it came up when I searched for a free app. I needed help identifying only 1 plant. When I went through the steps to download it, there was nothing that came up that said there was a fee associated with the app. I seem to remember it mentioning that there was an option to sign up for a yearly subscription, which I didn’t need or want. When searching on the app after downloading, there wasn’t a tab that showed my account info, my payment history/info, or that I signed up for a subscription, so I assumed it was ok to use. I only stumbled upon the email today when logging into my college email that I use for my Apple account. They sent an email about a free 3-day trial before being charged for a subscription. Any app I’ve had that cost something has a way to see what I signed up for within the app. This is ridiculously deceptive and costly. The developers knew exactly what they were doing when they set this up. Let’s see if I get the refund I requested...
  • Jun 9, 2021

    By Mitchel
    Not worth your money. Not only is the identification succes rate very sparse, you'll be forced to use the premium version without free option and remibder don't add anything at all. The whole purpose is to identify your plants, provide info and to remind you to water/pot the plant. Reminders don't even have a notification, so you need to make an effort to get into the app, go into you reminders which defeats the whole purpose of reminders? Bad app flow. Better apps are out there.
  • May 31, 2021

    By Kimia Bakhshian
    My opinion about this app is that it is very inefficient First of all, you can take a total of three photos and after that nothing can be done, you can not even upgrade the app for more photos Second, it does not accurately detect some plants Third, the app has only one language and the program language can not be changed
  • Jun 6, 2021

    By Jorge Gutierrez
    Really not worth this much money. All it does is remind you of when to water plants. Also very unhappy that the free trial automatically defaulted to the premium annual subscription instead of the monthly so they charge you for a full year with no possible refund. Would recommend to avoid this app.
  • Jun 15, 2021

    By nicole easton
    I took four pictures from the exact angle every time and it gave me four different plant identifications and none of them could possibly be right. It is a common house plant and it gave me crazy stuff. USELESS. 🙄
  • Jun 11, 2021

    By Mannee9
    The app is full of bugs and can't find even the most common plants. I gave it a try because it offered a discount but I wish I haven't. The only good thing are the reminders but let's be honest, plenty of ways to do that without this app. Probably won't be using it even though I payed for a full year.
  • Automatic Subscription WARNING May 6, 2021

    By Bibbidy Bobbidy
    Let me be Frank. If you have downloaded this app and thought you chose the free option, check your subscriptions in your App Store app NOW!! I have never automatically been signed up for a subscription after downloading an app and opening it for the first time! I CHOSE THE FREE OPTION AND STILL GOT CHARGED! Look over the other reviews. I am not the only one who has had this problem! This is either an oversight or intentional, either is unacceptable! The fact you can not see the status of your subscription within the app make me think it’s is the ladder! This is not my first rodeo. I am more than tech savvy enough to read the fine print and see if an app requires a subscription or just has it as an option along side the free service. Of course I just wanted to try it out first before making a decision on the subscription. Thankfully I had notifications on for my Apple Pay and it is easy to see your subscriptions in the App Store natively. If this was not the case I would have had a much harder time catching this and canceling due to the fact you can’t see the status of your subscription in the app. STAY SAFE EVERYONE! ...other than that the app looks pretty.
