User Comments:
Astonishing accuracy
“Very impressed. While not perfect, it can distinguish with high accuracy between different species in our collection of rare plants. It can even recognise down to cultivar sometimes - amazing. Amazed how it can work with any photo and it will give recognition a go - with impressive accuracy.”

Very useful for more generalist natural historians

I have used this app over the past week for identifying plants in France - some I already knew, others I didn’t. It is remarkably easy and quick to use and gives accurate identification for many plants. It seems to hit its limits with grasses and sedges, but even some of these it managed. So, whilst it can’t be relied on 100% it gives some fantastic pointers for further checking in books etc. And often I have been able to confirm the identification simply by comparing with other images within the app’s gallery. Highly recommended!

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this review. It’s always good to know people are out there, enjoying our work and finding it useful. We will work harder to improve the app. And we really appreciate it if you could recommend the app to others. For any question, comment, concern in the future, please feel free to contact us at

For a free app, this is exceptional

I’ve tried other plant identification apps before, usually the cone with a few free samples, then you have to purchase the app to unlock it. The fact that this app is 100% free, no in app purchases or anything makes it stand out from the pack. The identification of plants has so far been spot on, and the speed in which it does this is very impressive. An extremely useful app and one that is likely to move to a prominent spot on one of my home screens very quickly.

Good but.....

This app does what it says on the can and quickly and accurately identifies the few plants I tested. Unfortunately, the app is not free as suggested in a headline review. I would be more than happy to make a one-off payment in recognition of the hard work the developers have put in. But I have been caught out with pay plans before and over a length of time find they work out very expensive unless you use the app almost on a daily basis which I would not expect to do. I have therefore deleted it in favour of a less costly alternative.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. We're sorry for any confusion and inconvenience. PictureThis provides free version and subscription plans with all users. There are a few reasons we now offer 2 options:
We're a team of developers who are specialized in artificial intelligence (AI) and we all love plants. We created PictureThis app 2 years ago out of passion, with an aim to help users identify plants that they meet on trips. As the number of user keeps increasing, we have heard more and more encouragements as well as various requests for new functions and content. And as we know more about plants, we find out there's so much more that we can deliver to our users for a richer experience of the beauty of nature, such as HD wallpapers of beautiful leaves and flowers, gardening tips and reminders, and literature, poetry, and art plants have inspired throughout history. Thus, we have created different plans for users with different needs. For users who find the extra content and features beneficial, weekly and yearly subscription plans are available; and for users who feel good enough with the basic features, they can access to smart plant identification, share their plant collection and discover plants around on the built-in Flower Map.
We're sorry that we didn't make you feel that the price of our app matched its value. Our team will be continuously working on optimizing our identification accuracy and developing more features to promote our users' experience.
Just want to let you know, you can still enjoy many features with the free version, such as identifying plants, checking plant info, and discovering plants around. If you would like to upgrade the service again in the future, a weekly subscription plan is available at a low cost, which you may start and cancel anytime. We'd really appreciate if you'd like to give us another try or just share more thoughts and comments with us.
Have a good day!
