Not impressed so far...

Upon downloading the App, I instantly put it to the test using a fairly common house plant - Begonia Metallica. It couldn't find a match, despite it giving me a world of options linked to colour and leaf shape, but instead offered Coleus as the answer. However, the picture for the supposed coleus was indeed a variety of tropical Begonia!!??? So it got half of the match correct after refining the search results. It has to be said that the app is indeed easy to use and you can flag inaccuracies such as these as feedback to the app makers.

Great app

I flipping love his app. Like the way you can add your garden discoveries and find new discoveries either by searching there photo matching database or if you can't find it and really want a real person to locate the plant and get back to you there is a small fee. I've used it a couple times and really pleased with the service. It's my top favourite gardening companion app. Great stuff. I hope this app never gets neglected. If you have to add additional fees for extra services for it to stay alive in the App Store; make it so. 👍🙂

Glitchy and slow

The concept and design is nice, but it’s too frustrating to use. It’s either very slow or parts just don’t load. When I upload a photo of a plant to identify, it asks if I want a push notification or email, if you click push, it just stays idle and doesn’t load, so I have to shut the app and reload. I tried five times using the email notification and only one gave me an answer, the other four just didn’t load anything.
On the one it did load, it gave me the correct answer, but then when I went to save it, it loaded a different variety to the one I’d clicked on. Such a shame as I had high hopes.
