  • Best Plant ID App May 10, 2021

    By runner2boys
    Around my house there is an extensive forest and wetland filled to the brim with many different species of plants, many of which are edible in some way; I have run the leaves of around 50 different plants that were unknown to me, and EVERY SINGLE TIME this app gave the correct plant name, which I then googled to verify. The app has four settings for photos: flowers, leaves, bark, and fruits. While leaves and flowers are shown with 100% accuracy, the first result when running bark through the app isn’t always correct, which is to be expected, but so far the correct plant has always been on the list; as for fruits I have not tried that setting yet. No other app I have ever tried has worked with anywhere near the same ability as LeafSnap, and it is a FREE app that has performed better than even paid apps. I would absolutely recommend this app for any forager or plant enthusiast!

    Thus is an excellent plant app that warrants the $37.98 a year. I like the My Plant catalog, which lists all of the plants identified with the app. Here's the reason I am downgrading this app to 3 stars: When I upgraded to a new phone, My Plant did not carry over. When I emailed Leaf Snap, I received an unhelpful reply: the developers are working on a cloud based catalog. Okay, so the catalog must be in my old phone. But where? When I emailed the developer for help, I received no response.

    This app is incredible! I was skeptical about how well it could really work, so I used it on plants I already knew. Within a second, it was able to correctly identify the plant every time! I love to learn about the world around me and I find myself taking pictures of all sorts of plants. It does fungi too! Great app for a curious mind! I was most impressed when I took a picture of our shriveling day lilies. Took a pic of the leaves and it identified as Orange Day Lily and gave care instructions!
  • Good but I guess it could be a little better Apr 18, 2021

    I have never been up to date with watering my plants and I like reminders and adding new plants. Speaking of which, I feel the app can include a feature of search bar when you want to add a new plant. I had lemon grass and I knew the botanical name, but I clicked the image of the leaf, the botanical name or regular name did not come up leading to an incorrect identification of the plant. So if they had a search bar I could just type in, add a picture of the plant and go from there. Also I had requested to add a new plant about a month ago and I didn’t hear from the team. Hence I said it is good, but it could be better. All things considered it is still free and doesn’t bug you to buy the premium feature.

    While app is good enough to search for an info about a plants, the "premium" policy looks strange: after payment I still get advertisements. It simply changed from annoying pop-ups on every step you are doing to specific advertisements from nearest plant nurseries on specific steps. I will search for alternative apps, so in current state of app I do not recommend it. BTW, "feedback" button is not working. Knows the cat. UPD: It seems issue with ads is corrected. But feedback still is not working

    A helpful tool for identifying trees and plants. Suggestions: 1. Ability to break my plant items into sub directories eg deciduous trees, wildflowers, etc 2. The ability to search from the home screen for a particular species. 3. The ability to update my plant pic to one from your pic library. 4. The ability to tie multiple pics to one item in my library eg pics of the leaf, flower, seed 5. Pic gallery should include pics of leaf, flower, stem or bark, fruit. I don't need 50 pics of the fruit.
  • Necessary care yoke! Jan 8, 2021

    By Ferman Atchlyrq
    It's a great app! It is very accurate (for the most part) and gives you a lot of useful info on your plants. I loved it. However, I have to mentiob that it's been a little hit or miss with some of the plants that look alike, for example a Duranta Erecta and a Duranta Repentis which it cannot tell apart (the leaves look almost the same thought they have a different coloration and the bush having an overall totally different shape), but I don't really mind that

    I really like this app. Once you identify your plant you can save your photo of it and the app tells you everything you need to know about it.. Conditions it enjoys best, how to care for it, and where it comes from.... Where its naturalised since and where its happy now. What it's uses are, such as essential oils, ornamental, beds and borders whatever... I love this app. Its helpful to keep healthy flourishing plants for knowing whether they like direct sunlight, or partial shade, much water etc
  • Absolutely love this app Dec 29, 2020

    By Gazella Deerezn
    Absolutely love this app and I use it to identify any odd plants that I find and like. It's really useful so I can get more information on my reference plants for my artwork. Definitely recommend getting it and the subscription. Also gives information on how to raise and take care of the plants you identify. Very interesting, but I don't use that function too often since I'm horrible at keeping plants alive (I've killed mint before..).

    Very accurate and fast results. Returns a useful amount of information about the photographed plant. I'm surprised at how well they've done the detection algorithms. Few single click ads, but worth it for keeping it free.

  • Give me a chance to try it first! Feb 8, 2020

    By Warpdiva
    Looks like this is a very well-regarded app and I will probably give it a rating higher than two stars... but how about letting me try it first? I downloaded it and I am attempting to put it through its paces.... but screens keep popping up asking me to rate it, to download google (again? I already have it), to re-enable my mail program (google mail already works fine, thanks for asking) so finally I got tired of all the interruptions and decided you were right, I should just go ahead and rate it now. This is the result: 2 stars. But I will revise if warranted... once I am left alone long enough to actually give it a run-through.
  • The first time I used this app it worked great. May 16, 2021

    By Tracer Tong
    The second time it asked for credit card information which it said was for verification and targeted ad use only and that I would be charged nothing. After entering info, it then said in small print that I was automatically entered into a for pay targeted advertising program that if not canceled would end up costing a lot of money. Instead of figuring out how to cancel their program, I just paid the balance on my card and reported it lost. I don’t mind paying for good apps, but fraud and charging for unrelated and unwanted crap is wrong and criminal.
  • Pop up Ad Problems May 23, 2020

    By wedemDan
    I bought the less expensive version so I expected the nuisance ads. However, the game ads pop up with a very small x in the upper right top of screen that doesn’t work to close. At least the Facebook stuff lets you close their ad. Please fix or get rid of the game ads. Have to force quit to get rid of the game ads. If this can’t be fixed I will uninstall and don’t recommend anyone use the ad version. The identification works relatively well. I have a degree in wildlife biology an have studied plant taxonomy so I have more knowledge to fall back on than the casual user.

  • I LOVE THIS APP!!!! Feb 10, 2020

    By KatHal3804
    I work at a greenhouse with hundreds of different plants and this is a HUGE help. I have struggled so much with remembering everything and this has saved me. It is so specific to every plant or flower I have taken a picture of and they have all been identified. It is amazing!!! The only thing I wish was added was care for the plant and type of light each one takes but other then that it’s amazing.
  • Love this app!!! Jan 28, 2020

    By A2 😊🦋
    I recently moved into a house that has not had any landscaping done for about five years. Through using this app I found multiple plants that looked like they were just stuck within a bunch of other weeds and they ended up being great plants and trees. This app helped me tremendously to identify them without having to Google all day long over one plant thank you to the creator! 😊👍👍👍

    It's an excellent app, very helpful and usually quite accurate. But ads are extremely annoying, recommend premium to skip ads, but it is a lot mor5 expensive than other similar apps.

    We just moved & I've been able to identify half of our acrage already & learning of everything thats been planted on the property. Would like it to give us a bit more information but for now I can find what i need one. And I love that it tells you if the plant is healthy or not & what the issue is. I would recommend it to anyone that enjoys gardening

    I've mostly used this app to identify my succulents, and so far it's working great! You can "save" your collection and it even gives care tips and extra info per species. Don't even mind watching the 5sec adds ;)
  • This app is awesome!! Feb 24, 2020

    By Kiersten AM
    I looked for 2 hours on various websites and tools but could not for the life of me find the name of one of my plants. I want to be able to take care of my plants properly- but you need to know the name in order to do so. This app found my plant in about 2 seconds and I was so excited. For fun I just started snapping all my other plants too. A suggestion I would add is to add a section where it has basic care/ needs (like sunlight amounts, water preferences, preferred temperatures, etc) I 100% recommend this app!!

    Works pretty well as far as I can tell at correctly identifying the plants by leaf. Haven't tried other methods. Ads are fairly intrusive. Some good improvements recently but i still don't like that it's set to run on startup.

    Great ap, wish it would let you buy instead of a subscription for 6 months to get rid of ads. ugh. but recognizes plants well and has a lot of great info

  • It’s okay Aug 21, 2020

    By Gtr builder
    This app works intermittently. Sometimes it’s relatively quick and sometimes it takes so long to process a person gets tired of waiting. I’m talking waiting 5-10 minutes. As far as accuracy, you have to have a little knowledge of the plants you are looking at. It brings up 3-4 choices and if you have no idea at all what you are looking at, you can get incorrect information.
