  • It has not gotten one plant right, yet.

    By TeriTgr
    I've taken pictures of four plants that I know. Not one of the answers back were correct. Tried a few different angles, according to the instructions and still not correct. Not a big fan of this app at the moment.
  • Praise Jesus amen

    By billy meade
    Praise Jesus amen, hallelujah that this app has finally been made. Can I get an amen?
  • Omg I can’t believe this app exists!!

    By Quackygirl33
    I am having so much fun confirming my plant suspicions. This app is my new favorite!!
  • Don’t bother!

    By suz.lewis
    Couldn’t identify the most common of plants in my backyard!
  • Relatively worthless

    By Person that eats pies
    I tried it on two very common plants, just to try it out and figure out how it worked. The first was a bing cherry tree. Wrong two out of two. Next I tried a Laural bush; again a very common plant. Wrong again. It identified it as a southern magnolia, which doesn’t even grow in this area so far as I know.
  • Rip off

    By svhzr
    Don’t buy this app. I am a horticulturist and thought this would be a good tool. It is not. I took two test photos of known common household plants. It failed miserably on both accounts. It didn’t even come close to identifying the plants. It even identified one as poison ivy. So much for their claim of 92% accuracy. Read the reviews. This app customer support replies are all the same. “Customer didn’t use right, didn’t take good pictures, failed to follow instructions or video etc etc.
  • Waste of money

    By AUB4ME
    I should have read more reviews, this app is a total waste of money! It gives guesses, like “Most probably.......” and “Could also be......”. And sometimes you get “There was an error identifying your image, please try again”. Buy a book instead. So you guys give refunds? I would like a refund please.
  • Not good for succulents

    By Debbie33Casey
    I bought this app to ID my succulents but it hasn’t been able to correctly ID them. Even if I know the ID and test the app it still can’t ID correctly.
