  • A truly excellent app! Jul 22, 2020

    By Slumbertime101
    I recently found myself with some time on my hands to hike the trails of Balboa Park in San Diego. I practiced herbal medicine for many years under my acupuncture license in several states, but it's been a long time since I identified and collected plants in the wild. So, I thought it would be fun if I could identify some of the local plants. Spoiler alert: most of them do not appear to be of any medicinal value, but they're still fun to look at. This is the second or third app of this sort that I have tested, and it is infinitely better than any of the others. When you first open the app, it looks like you need to buy a subscription to use it, but that is not the case. You can dismiss the subscription prompt and open the camera to snap a pic. I'm not sure exactly what you get with the subscription, but it looks like it would be useful for a serious hobbyist and awesome for serious home gardening enthusiasts and organic farmers. In fact, an organic farmer friend of mine says that he regularly uses it to identify weeds in his crops. The only thing I've run across so far that I can't do with the free version is save the photos. There may also be a limit to the total number of pictures per day, but I am not sure and definitely have yet to max out on one of my hikes. Enthusiastically recommended with no conflict of interest.

  • Great app with little disturbance Aug 7, 2020

    By AvocadoWizard
    I love this app It’s so easy to just whip out the app anywhere and snap a pic of any plant and get almost instant results with nice information to annoy your family with! There is only two problems I have encountered. The most pressing problem is that if no WiFi is available you obviously must use data to get results. This isn’t much of a problem as everyone now a days has data or some form of connection. I have a solution for this but first I will say the second problem I have with this app is that it’s constantly pushing you to purchase the subscription. You can easily press the x at the top right corner but I think it’s very easy to accidentally buy it. Now back to my solution for the data thing. I suggest that the app devs make an option to download the entire database on your phone. This would obviously take up some space on your phone but I think it’s worth it. Also I feel that this feature should only be available for subscribed members. Don’t raise the price or anything because I think it’s quite pricey as is. Other than that this app is great! I’ve seen a few apps like this where you take a picture and it takes like 12 hours for results. I think that’s ridiculous. This app is instant. 10/5

    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!

    I manage an academic greenhouse and this app has actually helped me to narrow down the taxonomy for a few specimen that have been left unidentified or completely misidentified for years. The newer feature that identifies plant stress has also been an extremely useful teaching tool in helping my students understand the signs and symptoms of plant pest and pathogen infestations. The invasives warning has been especially useful for my students to understand and identify invasives on the campus ecological preserve too. I will be downloading this app on all devices for students in ecology to use this upcoming semester. Love it and frequently recommend to everyone even off campus. It’s obviously not perfect (not sure why some would think a plant ID app would work on mushrooms haha) but it is accurate in providing the correct genera or at least family which can then be used in conjunction with a field guide. As someone who has built multiple phone applications myself and lives a life centered around botany and computer science, I honestly am beyond impressed. I just hope most of the features remain free (if that changes possibly provide a university bundle subscription?) :) **note: I have not tried the app on unidentified specimen in the herbarium yet but am very curious

  • Too many bugs Jun 14, 2019

    By Ddthntstheus
    I did the free week trial of premium access, and loved the plant identification part. I loved that part so much i subscibed to the yearly. And canceled the next day. The problem, is that the premium is supposed to give unlimited plant identification. But the free week has only has three or so free, before you have to buy another by watching an ad or sharing it on face book or something. Even though i bought a subscription, i still could not access the ident, because my subscription didnt start until the free week ended. And the “free week” forced me to watch ads to get idents. This was yesterday, so i sent them an email about the problem. Today, i still hadnt received a reply. So Today i had to earn an ident. I hate ads, so i tried sharing to fb. i tried sharing to earn a free ident, but it couldnt connect. It asked if i wanted to automatically connect when available, i said yes. Then the screen went dark and i could get back to other features of the app. 45 minutes later, it was still dark. Total bs. I canceled, since they didnt even bother to reply to my email. Wish i could give it a 5 star, but the bugs and bad customer service forces me to give only a fair rating.

  • Scam alert! No free trial at all. Feb 5, 2021

    By Mia Tioseco
    They trick you into installing it with a 7day free trial. I started using it on Day 1 of installation as I was helping my son identify plants in our garden. On the same day I installed, I was billed for 1 year subscription. Other apps bill you after the trial period while this one bills you instantly. So there is no free trial at all. I can’t believe Apple allows this. I’m tempted to remove my card details from my account and forego my free Apple TV subscription.

    Like the P previous reviewer I felt cheated when my week free trial was charged for. I’m trying to claim money back, even this looks dodgy. Someone called Phoebe apparently going to send me an email in the next 24 hours. Can’t believe Apple are supporting this app.

    When trying to unsubscribe, this company sends you an email that makes it seem like you are through with the process. At the very bottom of the email, after lots of random information meant to steer you away, in smaller font, they tell you how to fully unsubscribe. Gross way to run a company. Sent an email to them and got more of the same fake run a round. I'm sure a more honest company has the same features.

    I saw this app and apparently either it does not do what it appears to do in the ad for it or I misunderstood. I wanted it to I.d. trees that had been cut down or rather I was more interested in the trees age by the amount of rings.But it keeps telling me it can't find a plant in the picture. Well DUH!! It's a tree. Smh. Maybe you have to pay something which I don't want to know that bad. Idk. I didnt start the free membership. my card better not get charged. 🤔

    When you go to cancel your free trial, you send a "request." All of their emails went to my junk mail, so I did not realize my membership was charged, even though I put the request in. There are no refunds, and all of their emails are automated and not easy to read. Not only was that a terrible experience, but the app did not get identify plants correctly, and it does not differentiate between variations of the same plant. The diagnosis feature was not useful and gave me 3 different diagnosis.

  • Mostly great Jul 1, 2019

    By JEMMjams
    I’ve tried several plant ID apps and Picture This is by far the best. It’s easy to use and I often get a match for the plant I am trying to ID. I like that the common and Latin name are often both provided. It’s very helpful that there are pics in the database of plants at different stages of growth—some flowers look very different as they move through the stages, which can make identifying them difficult. It works best for me if I take pics of plants and then go in the house and have my laptop handy as I use the app to ID them. I can see everything better and if I am unsure of the ID provided I can hop on the computer to do a search. One frustration: once you add a pic, if you can’t ID it right away but figure it out later, you cannot update the listing—you can only add a comment, so it always shows as unidentified. I also wish there was a way to sort the listings in your collection rather only having them listed in reverse chronological order. If there can only be one sort order, I would prefer alphabetical so I could easily see and delete duplicates and have pics of the same plant at different stages grouped by together. I love being able to see pics from gardeners all over the place and make comments and read the comments of others.

    3RD UPDATE: Ok, you can use this app for free however, there are no buttons that indicate "free" except for the "free trial" offer. You can however bypass this and start using the app. It really does work and did identify my plant whereas other apps failed. I would certainly suggest it to be worth the $2.99 per month or $19.00 per year and I will be subscribing. Unfortunately, I give 4 stars because the fact that you can yes it free without signing up is ambiguous at best.

    Have had the app for a couple of weeks now. Even though it occasionally misses the mark, I find it to be a great help in identifying and diagnosing issues. My only suggestion would be to have a one time charge instead of $20/yr

    UPDATE: Changing rating from 1 to 3 stars. I saw an ad & downloaded again. Realized I had previously written a review about it. Read their response & installed again. They're right, you can "X" out of the credit card piece, but only get 1 plant id. Then you have to pay, or refer a friend or jump through some hoops to get another free . The good news is it is very accurate. You should state up front that the free trial requires a credit card even though you can cancel before billing.

    You have to enter a lot of personal information and sign up for a trail. It did identify my random plant and it seems like a really useful app for plant lovers. Not so great for the casual plant-grower who would be unwilling to pay the $8 a month asking cost. The cancelation process is not intuitive, seems scammy.

  • Not very accurate May 8, 2020

    By annuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu
    So I tried this app, and some things weren’t correct. I took a picture of some lichen and needed some help identifying what type of lichen it was. I found this app and I thought “huh I’ll give it a spin”, and used the picture of the lichen. It said that the lichen, though completely covering the stick, was a Black Cherry Tree. I thought, “well, this isn’t right.” So then I was skeptical so I tried a picture of some Star Moss I had found to see if it could be trusted,(I’m a huge moss lover!). So I entered in the picture of the Star Moss and it said Moss Campion. So not 100% reliable, but it did say that the Star Moss was moss, but it wasn’t the right type. I entered in another picture of a mushroom I had found. It said it was a type of tree that stood about 98 feet tall, A MUSHROOM! So I wouldn’t try it. I also saw that the ad was showing the wrong plants for poison oak and ivy and the other plant, but I know poisonous and dangerous things when I see it, and those weren’t dangerous on the ad they were showing. I live in the middle of the country out in Ohio, and I go into our woods a lot. So I know most plant species, like say an oak tree for example, a sycamore, different types of moss like badge moss and star moss and fern moss, etc. I am pretty skilled at it except for the lichens, and fungi, and epiphytes. So I do NOT recommend this app. Consult an expert for how to tell what type of plant it is, not this lying piece of garbage.

  • misidentifies plants despite premium account Aug 2, 2020

    By beaslyrising
    For a non-free and pretty expensive app, it consistently misidentifies plants in CA. For instance, it has no idea what safari red leucandendron is and with clear pics, thinks it’s crimson bottlebrush or a form of asparagus. It also is terrible at knowing subspecies of plants (it can barely identify my lime tree and gets the subspecies wrong—sometimes even thinks it’s a plant from another genus!). There are even a few plants in my yard that are yet Unidentified because it wrongly identifies them every time. CA plants and plants common to this area aren’t picked up by this app well at all. I only know its identifications are wrong because of the accompanying pics of the example plants look NOTHING like my plants and a google search confirms this. Really disappointing and I won’t be renewing this app. The plant has to be VERY common and widespread for this app to be correct. Also, tried to use the diagnose feature but because of the disease on my plant, it wouldn’t even identify my photonias correctly! What a mess. Is okay at identifying SOME trees and worse at shrubs/vines/flowering plants. Waste of money, unfortunately.

  • Good interface but accuracy not great and too hard to cancel before being charged Jul 4, 2020

    By ally_kat_2000
    This app seemed great to start with but based on my experience so far it is running at about 30% accuracy. Some ID’s are just obviously completely wrong. For others I’ve taken 4 pics of the same plant and been given 3 different results, for others I’ve googled to confirm the id based on the initial result and have worked out that the correct answer is a similar but different plant (e.g. a yellow flower was identified as a yellow trout lily - the leaves were wrong, and that plant was not consistent with my location - but that was enough info to lead me to the correct id of yellow avalanche/glacier lily in the same family). There seems to be no way to either report the incorrect identification or amend the record to the correct plant, which is annoying, and also makes me worried that the app is accumulating a library of misidentified images. Finally, I tried to cancel the subscription several days before the end of the free trial (because I was underwhelmed by the results), but was charged anyway.

    It gave me a false read and if I hadn't deleted it, I imagine it may have been used to help others decide what they had. Didn't ask what part of the country I'm in or anything. And be careful, when you sign up for the free version, it takes you to a 1 week free before $19.99/mo from PayPal using your email address. It appears the free version gives you 3 IDs, and at least my first one was wrong.
