  • Awesome App May 24, 2020

    By Davidwtd
    I’m a total novice so I can’t follow all the Family/ Genus stuff. It’s over my head. But the app lends itself to basic use too by listing the common names. My favorite part though is when you search a plant, the options offer pics of the flower, leaves, bark, etc.. There’s even a Wikipedia tab so you can read about the plant which can help in identification. Because it’s user driven, there’s good and bad. The good: TONS of submitted photos. The bad: Not all the submitted pics will be of the advertised plant (just means someone made a poor identification and “contributed” it to the database). This can fool you into thinking it’s something it’s not. It’s also up to the user network to “validate” everyone’s observations. Sadly there’s no flora-genius overseeing the thousands of contributions to determine the accuracy. That’s just wishful thinking. You’re relying on someone plant-savvy to stumble across your contribution and choose to validate you. Overall a kickass app. And it’s free! I’m learning slowly, but learning a lot.

    Awesome app. I own landscaping business and it's amazing and helps me with clients plants to identify when I don't know. Just need to put Australia in the list of themes. Thanks Regi of wynnum.australia

    During covid-19 sheltering and shutdowns, my plant love has rekindled ever brighter on my neighborhood walks. Of all the 4 plant apps i downloaded to help me identify the abundance of flaura here, PlantNet is my #1 go to. It makes me happy and is extremely user friendly to navigate. So much so, i want to interview these awesome developers to learn from their mastery and see if maybe there is a way to work with them develop an ocean app that keeps percolating for me. It involved coral reef restoration - art, sci, tech, international community involvement. I'm not an avid app user, yet this app inspires and delivers. I am an artist working with ecology; so grateful for PlantNet. Thanks for creating this wonderful world of fun and discovery to keep me engaged with beautiful aliveness during the pandemic.

    I love this app. I use it all the time to try and figure out the volunteers growing in my garden, or out in the wild. Sometimes I get multiple options for what might be in my garden but I still use it. I just figure the choices that repeat themselves are probably the most likely.

    I’ve always been in love with the natural world and this app has opened a whole new door to it for me. It’s only the 2nd app like this I’ve tried but Plantnet has exceeded my expectations. Only a couple small deviations I’ve found so far that if worked out could help take away one of the ?’s when trying to identify a plant and improve the over all quality When I search a identical picture of a plant from my LG phone and IPad I get two different results. For example, I had 5 results on the LG and 11 on the iPad. I believe the lesser number of results is always the same to the larger but why two different results? Also little more detail about the environment where they originated, uses, lifespan, are they threatened or endangered and a short summary how to care for would be amazing! It’s a great app though. Well done Plantnet! Can’t wait to continue growing my collection and discovering more of this near secret world of botany around us all.

  • Good app Jul 24, 2020

    By Bindybox
    I use this app together with another app. This helps me narrow down or confirm this app’s identification. PlantNet seems to be right most of the time, which cannot be said for some other apps... I wish, however, that the app makers would amend a feature: under the information section that comes in the plant’s description, the “Uses” section would be more accurate and scientifically based. It is not valid to state that a plant is a “weed”, particularly if it is native to an area, possibly experiencing decline in numbers due to habitat destruction, and essential for ecosystem function. Even if a plant is successful and aggressive (sometimes obnoxiously so), it is not a weed if it is native.

  • Awesome 👍 Nov 17, 2020

    By showstopper891
    I love this app. It is a great app! I highly recommend this app for plant identification. But there are a few cons... I don’t love how you are not allowed to say you don’t know what category it is in. When the option is there?! But it is a great app. I also don’t like that even if you get a clear picture it says unidentifiable. I get you can get everything but say sorry the app does not know. If I could I would give this a 4 and a half. Overall great app

  • The AI is great, other details... Jun 24, 2020

    By This nickname was taken2
    It’s amazing to watch the ID happen moments after uploading one pic. Other details of the app are not great. I kept trying to add a pic from my camera roll and then supplement w a newly taken photo of the same specimen. Not possible, plus renders the first set of pics unsubmittable. Also adding pics from camera roll causes them to be duplicated in the roll. Annoying. Barebones explanations generally. Not at all clear what the stars mean.

  • Not sure it’s trustworthy Sep 16, 2020

    By AGMontclair
    I don’t know whether to believe the results I’m getting from this app. I found pictures of my ice plant but they called it a Hottentot Fig! Figs, really? Then I found pictures of a cactus I have which it called Long Spine Cactus...but it has almost no spines, certainly not long ones. And mixed in with those photos was one of a prickly pear...a very different shape! So if the app allows users to misidentify a plant but still upload their photo (into the wrong place), isn’t that just going to cause chaos & confusion?

    Identification of plants by flowers or leaves different and confusing. Your stock of plants is so encyclopedic.
