    It's too bad that cool, thorny tree you found on your hike doesn't come with a label so you know what it is. Luckily, you can snap a quick photo and get matched to a plant identification page in under 2 seconds so you can read all about it!

    Cornwall is home to well over 1,100 different plant species. Plenty to explore on your next hike. If you're curious to know which flower, berry, or shrub you just passed, you can always snap a picture of it and let this app do its job.

    I love this app! It comes in so handy when you have a plant outside that you don't know what it is. You get a 7-day free trial and then it's only $29.99 per year. To me, that's a bargain. Love the apps from this developer so much!

    Since renewing subscription recently PictureThis seems unable to recognise plants and repeatedly asks me to take more photos.

    You will get charged!! Aug 8, 2021

    By Cathy M Godes
    Be careful of the fine print....and anything that is a 'free trial'. I got charged for this without expecting it. I'm going to try to get the money back through Apple since my bank can't do anything until the credit charge goes through. Once the 7 days is up, you'll get the charge on your credit card (and other reviews are saying that canceling before the 7 days doesn't avoid the charge). Maybe it's a good app, but my bank said to not download apps with free trials.

    Deceptive and Misleading cancellation within app May 5, 2021

    By M Nigro
    I have experienced the same as many other users. When cancelling the app from within the app you receive a cancellation email. THIS DOES NOT CANCEL YOUR APP MEMBERSHIP. After contacting the company I was directed to cancel the app through the app store. THIS IS A MISLEADING AND DECEPTIVE PRACTICE. I have disputed the charge with Google and was denied a refund. I am disputing it with my bank now.

    Not a free trial, crap customer service Mar 30, 2021

    By lisaduxbury2211@yahoo.co.uk
    Impossible to cancel- you click to cancel subscription and get an instant email confirming but then it doesn't get cancelled and they charge you!! Customer service shocking and no refund as yet. Reporting this as fraud to my credit card company. Bunch of idiots!

    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.

    Can’t believe it’s had positive reviews Jan 18, 2021

    By Carina Newman
    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.

    Incredibly useful app. Does an awesome job identifying plants and shows great photo examples so you can be sure you’re getting the right results! Has care tips, tells you if a plant is potentially hazardous, shows commonly asked questions and their answers, and so much more. Love that I can “save to my garden” and look back at what I’ve scanned and reread the info anytime. Love the “diagnose” feature as well!! Had helped us identify different diseases and root rot and gives advice for care. Turns out we planted some (hardware store purchased) basil that had some infection in the roots that seeps into the soil, so now we can’t plant basil or mint or anything in our garden for several years. Would never have known without this app! Would have just thought the stalks were turning black because I have a black thumb 😂 My only critique is the cost of the “full version” of the app. I would be *happy* to pay the developers for their hard work on this app because it’s really so incredible, but $30 a YEAR is much too steep for me. What happened to apps being a couple bucks at most? What’s the deal with this whole yearly subscription thing?? I personally feel like the creators would make more money by charging less and having more buyers, but I’m no accountant. I’ll just keep clicking “continue with free version” til the cows come home.

    Over the years I have tried to get to grips with identifying wild plants and flowers, and failed! Having started to use this app recently I have finally found it possible to make good progress. I think it is brilliant. However, whilst most of the time this app is excellent at identifying plants, it does get quite a few wrong. Sadly, there seems to be no way of correcting the I.D. if you don't know what it should be, and you can't even simply reject the I.D. if you can easily see it is wrong.
  • 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.

    Love the app, It is helpfull, No kidding. But one thing that im concerned about, is that you get a limited amount of pictures, like you have 3 avalible pictures, you use them, and you have NO more. Id appreciate it if you fix that, and make it you can make pictures of plants any time you want. Thank you, ill make it a 5 star once you have fixed that. Thank you for your time.
  • 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

    2nd year purchasing the subscription & I can't imagine my life without it. 100% worth $20 a year. It is absolutely the best app on the market for plant ID, when I snap a photo it finds it correctly 99.9% of the time, and the .1% i just take it again from a dif angle/with a clear background and it is found.
  • Amazing Aug 14, 2020

    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

    Good app, a few issues-- #1 is that the annoying upgrade ad pops up EVERY SINGLE TIME you open the app, and you have to close the ad out before being able to do anything. #2 is that SOO many plants (including many very common types found in standard garden centers) are not in this app. This is really frustrating when you already had to close the pop up ad you forgot about and accidentally clicked on, taking you to the buy screen and having to back out of just a few moments before
  • 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.

    This app is so much more than I expected it to be! Not only does it identify everything (correctly nearly every time) but it gives you every detail about the plant as well as identifying any problems your plant may be experiencing through the snap. AWESOME APP! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

  • #1 among all education apps? You’ve got to be kidding! Jun 15, 2020

    By Blanket Beauty
    A plant identification app has one primary purpose: to accurately identify plants. This one doesn’t. I live with a plant professional with over 35 years of experience. I purchased the app two days ago and since then have taken 48 photos of plants in our yard. Of these, Plant Identifier has accurately identified 20 of them. I took photos a second and third time at different angles and distances. In several cases, the app would come up with a different identification of the plant in the photo each time the photo was taken, but with another wrong identification. In some, the IDs were not even close to the correct name of the plant. Not only that, but few of the plants I’ve photographed have been identified by variety—the most important way to compare plants within a particular genus or species. But with Plant Identifier, every snake plant is identified as just that, “snake plant,” no matter how different the many different varieties look from each other. For those of you who thought you were purchasing a great plant identifier app, think again. Many of the plants you have identified using Plant Identifier have been misidentified, if my average so far of less than 50% accuracy has any merit at all. Unless you are fortunate enough to have a professional who knows the plants you are adding to your collection, as I have, I am sorry to have to tell you that you have purchased a bum steer.
  • Don’t do it Jun 29, 2020

    By sarahsourit
    Latest update: after reading countless other reviews, this has happened to SO MANY people who have downloaded this app. Whoever writes the “developer response” doesn’t seem to care. I have already emailed support with no response. This company is a scam. I have tried every way possible to end my subscription but any way I access my subscriptions, it does not allow me to cancel or end this membership. At this point I am forced to work with my bank about removing the charge. I just wish more would be done so that this can stop happening to other people in the future. I guess that’s how this company makes their money.... *** I have been attempting to end my membership for a week now after accidentally signing up for a premium membership. Seemed like I just picked up my phone and suddenly it was signing up for a subscription I didn’t want. I believe this app made it too easy for that to happen. I immediately attempted to end my membership and after checking my email - it forces me to manage the membership through iTunes. In order to do this properly, I’ve had to remove iTunes and re download it on my computer just to even get to the page they are trying to open from the link in the email. Overall, what I am trying to say is this app is NOT user friendly and I strongly believe they designed it in a way to take money from their customers and make it difficult to get it back.

    App always opens with a prompt to purchase the app, but just click on your phone's "back" icon to get into the app. Simply take a picture of the plant and the app will bring up it's name and all the info! You can save your searches to "my plants" for future reference.

  • Picture This! Jun 15, 2021

    By 爱棋魂的人
    Recently, there has been some sort of fake strawberry in our backyard. We knew it wasn’t a real strawberry since it wouldn’t produce flowers and fruit. So I installed picture this and made some experiments. I realized that picture this could not only identify a plant from its flower - it could also do the same from a photo with leaves! When I took A picture of a tomato, picture of this immediately identified that it was a tomato. When I took a picture of what I need to be a real strawberry’s leaf, Picture this accurately identified it as well. Then, came the real experiment. I took a picture of the fake strawberry, Picture this was able to accurately tell me that the fake strawberry was what it said to be a tall buttercup, which is different from a normal buttercup since it’s leaves are bigger. And that was very correct. About why I said that the tall buttercup didn’t produce flowers, I was wrong. Later, small yellow flowers grew. But that didn’t matter. I just pulled the fake strawberries or tall buttercups out and away. All thanks to the amazing Picture This, and rate it 5 stars for its incredible accuracy and help. So, thank you Picture This. I strongly recommend this app to you. Enjoy!

    Over the years I have tried to get to grips with identifying wild plants and flowers, and failed! Having started to use this app recently I have finally found it possible to make good progress. I think it is brilliant. However, whilst most of the time this app is excellent at identifying plants, it does get quite a few wrong. Sadly, there seems to be no way of correcting the I.D. if you don't know what it should be, and you can't even simply reject the I.D. if you can easily see it is wrong.

    Love the app, It is helpfull, No kidding. But one thing that im concerned about, is that you get a limited amount of pictures, like you have 3 avalible pictures, you use them, and you have NO more. Id appreciate it if you fix that, and make it you can make pictures of plants any time you want. Thank you, ill make it a 5 star once you have fixed that. Thank you for your time.

    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.

    Awesome app, I take pictures on my walks with the kids and we all learn what plants are growing wherever we go, also quite handy to be informed which berries and fruit are out there that are edible.
  • Definitely 2 happy thumbs up! Jul 19, 2021

    By WazerCraze(r)
    I just downloaded this app almost 2 weeks ago and 3 of my friends have already downloaded it and sent me texts telling me how much they absolutely LOVE this app! It is incredibly helpful and fun for all shades and levels of green thumbs! It’s especially great when you’re browsing the nursery because with one picture you have every bit of info about the plant you are interested in 🪴as well as all the tips and tricks to taking care of your new leafy friend 🤗💚 The only thing that makes me extremely sad is that I cannot afford to upgrade to the pricey premium app (which is also the only reason I gave the app 4 stars instead of 5) which I would love so so much to have! Do you foresee the monthly subscription payment going down even a little bit anytime soon? Thank you so very much for creating an amazingly brilliant app, and allowing me to get outside and feel like a human being again, I don’t know what I would do without this app! Two thumbs up and tons and tons of congratulations on a much well deserved app!

    Good app, a few issues-- #1 is that the annoying upgrade ad pops up EVERY SINGLE TIME you open the app, and you have to close the ad out before being able to do anything. #2 is that SOO many plants (including many very common types found in standard garden centers) are not in this app. This is really frustrating when you already had to close the pop up ad you forgot about and accidentally clicked on, taking you to the buy screen and having to back out of just a few moments before

    Quite a few plant names are listed. You cannot add to the list available if you know the name. While it allows you to "name the plant" this feature only allows you to add a common name, not correct the name and Latin name or add what sort of light it requires or watering recommended. You have to pick a similar plant then correct the name of the plant.

    Could be great, but is missing a big variety of species. It's ok not being able to identify them all, but at least having encyclopedia knowledge about non-indentifyable species could allow isers to add their own to the tracker. But the lack of species prevents this simple workaround.

    Sometimes it just doesn't want to work. Says I have no internet connection when I'm having 0 issues with other internet stuff. Can be very frustrating when I'm just trying to long my plant care and it won't let me

  • Horrible instructions, great identifier Jul 5, 2021

    By BellaBuckeye
    This is EXCELLENT for identifying plants, but their instructions are WRONG & INCONSISTENT! I have a brown thumb so I spent the extra money for premium and almost killed all my plants with their instructions!!! Sunlight & water are practically the two most important instructions for plants and their sunlight is TOTALLY OFF & water is often wrong!! For example: When the plant first pops up listing the care in a graph form, every single one of my 15 plants says something like FULL SHADE and it’s not until you click deeply into the professionals care tab that is a written booklet form that you get the correct care like BRIGHT INDIRECT LIGHT. Every single one of my plants is off!! One says BRIGHT LIGHT then the pro page says PARTIAL SHADE. Not one single plant is correct and even watering care is often wrong!!! I was caring for my plants by the initial & secondary page coming up and almost killed all my plants I got from my mother's funeral…which have so much meaning and sentiment to me. I want to keep these in her memory because she was a beautiful Gardner. I would give 0 stars for their inaccuracy on care but it definitely deserves the 3 stars for identification.

    Since renewing subscription recently PictureThis seems unable to recognise plants and repeatedly asks me to take more photos.

    You will get charged!! Aug 8, 2021

    By Cathy M Godes
    Be careful of the fine print....and anything that is a 'free trial'. I got charged for this without expecting it. I'm going to try to get the money back through Apple since my bank can't do anything until the credit charge goes through. Once the 7 days is up, you'll get the charge on your credit card (and other reviews are saying that canceling before the 7 days doesn't avoid the charge). Maybe it's a good app, but my bank said to not download apps with free trials.

    Deceptive and Misleading cancellation within app May 5, 2021

    By M Nigro
    I have experienced the same as many other users. When cancelling the app from within the app you receive a cancellation email. THIS DOES NOT CANCEL YOUR APP MEMBERSHIP. After contacting the company I was directed to cancel the app through the app store. THIS IS A MISLEADING AND DECEPTIVE PRACTICE. I have disputed the charge with Google and was denied a refund. I am disputing it with my bank now.

    Not a free trial, crap customer service Mar 30, 2021

    By lisaduxbury2211@yahoo.co.uk
    Impossible to cancel- you click to cancel subscription and get an instant email confirming but then it doesn't get cancelled and they charge you!! Customer service shocking and no refund as yet. Reporting this as fraud to my credit card company. Bunch of idiots!

    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.

    Can’t believe it’s had positive reviews Jan 18, 2021

    By Carina Newman
    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.
  • #1 among all education apps? You’ve got to be kidding! Jun 15, 2020

    By Blanket Beauty
    A plant identification app has one primary purpose: to accurately identify plants. This one doesn’t. I live with a plant professional with over 35 years of experience. I purchased the app two days ago and since then have taken 48 photos of plants in our yard. Of these, Plant Identifier has accurately identified 20 of them. I took photos a second and third time at different angles and distances. In several cases, the app would come up with a different identification of the plant in the photo each time the photo was taken, but with another wrong identification. In some, the IDs were not even close to the correct name of the plant. Not only that, but few of the plants I’ve photographed have been identified by variety—the most important way to compare plants within a particular genus or species. But with Plant Identifier, every snake plant is identified as just that, “snake plant,” no matter how different the many different varieties look from each other. For those of you who thought you were purchasing a great plant identifier app, think again. Many of the plants you have identified using Plant Identifier have been misidentified, if my average so far of less than 50% accuracy has any merit at all. Unless you are fortunate enough to have a professional who knows the plants you are adding to your collection, as I have, I am sorry to have to tell you that you have purchased a bum steer.
  • Don’t do it Jun 29, 2020

    By sarahsourit
    Latest update: after reading countless other reviews, this has happened to SO MANY people who have downloaded this app. Whoever writes the “developer response” doesn’t seem to care. I have already emailed support with no response. This company is a scam. I have tried every way possible to end my subscription but any way I access my subscriptions, it does not allow me to cancel or end this membership. At this point I am forced to work with my bank about removing the charge. I just wish more would be done so that this can stop happening to other people in the future. I guess that’s how this company makes their money.... *** I have been attempting to end my membership for a week now after accidentally signing up for a premium membership. Seemed like I just picked up my phone and suddenly it was signing up for a subscription I didn’t want. I believe this app made it too easy for that to happen. I immediately attempted to end my membership and after checking my email - it forces me to manage the membership through iTunes. In order to do this properly, I’ve had to remove iTunes and re download it on my computer just to even get to the page they are trying to open from the link in the email. Overall, what I am trying to say is this app is NOT user friendly and I strongly believe they designed it in a way to take money from their customers and make it difficult to get it back.

    Not working for the plants I downloaded it for, try to force you to give credit card information for their free trial. Sketch AF. if a friend hadn't recommend, I'd have immediately deleted it.
