Will highly recommend this app

this is the first time I have ever found something as interesting as this app. My first impression with the app was pretty good, the green color of its interface was really eye-soothing. All the features are organized in a way that I can easily explore them the first time I ever used it. I didn't know how to take a proper photo with the in-app camera at first, you know, to make sure all the features of my roses are recognizable. but then the app automatically point out that I needed more lights, and I did just that. The picture turned out to be a perfect fit and the app identified it right away. Now you guys might say roses are way too easy, you can find them everywhere and can never mistake them with anything else. So I tried it on our Bougainvillia tree in the backyard, on its leaf only, to be specific. and you know what? correct results in a few seconds! only by a small little leaf.

I’ve tested this app on a pretty wide range of Scottish wildflowers. I’m impressed. So far it’s returned an impressive success rate, far better than any similar app. This looks like a technology close to being really useful for a range of users. The better the image, the more accurate the result. The price is surprisingly low.

Continuing to test this app and the more I use it the more impressed I am. I have lots of experience photographing flowers for identification so perhaps I’m capturing more salient features than other reviewers. So far, I’m delighted with not a single instance where the app hasn’t returned the correct family at the very least and most often an accurate id. I don’t know whether the app uses location info as part on the process, if not this might make it even better.

Works wonderfully

Love the idea so I downloaded it right away. I used to have this app that can identify objects of all kinds, but not plants like this lovely app, so I was curious to know if it could actually identify anything. The first try took me more efforts than I initially thought, as I didn’t know from which angle should I take the picture, but still worked out fine after a few snaps. The following tries were a lot smoother and faster as I already got the trick of it. I also love the fact that this app allows me to share my identifications with others by sorting them by their locations, it’s like a small victory map of my own, and I’m really proud of it. Highly recommend this for anyone who wants a long-term hobby or entertainment during the weekend
