This is the only app covering wildflowers on the British Isles with photo recognition. Works like magic: Simply take a picture and the app will identify the found flower.

*** with Automatic Photo Recognition *** in this stunning guide to identifying Wild Flowers of the British Isles. Identification can be enjoyed by the whole family and will bring you closer to the natural world around you. For the enthusiast there is anatomical, ecological and taxonomic information too.

Wild Flower Id can be used to keep a log of your flower sightings making it easy to build a record of all the flowers you've seen. Wild Flower Id has been created by professional published ecologists, and uses a propriety image library created with the specific aim of aiding wild flower identification with images of the flower, leaf, stem and plant.

Wild Flower Id is great fun to use.

Flower ID

Fantastic app with clear images and a comprehensive data base. Really enjoying the quiz feature with option for flower leaves or plant content. Only drawback is not enough time on the quiz if the wrong answer is selected to fully read and absorb the right answer information. A slight delay until the change to the next question would improve this aspect.

Great concept for an app and reasonable and honestly priced, Howver, I couldn’t get any of my photos to be recognised by the app. I tested this against Bing’s on line photo recognition app. Photos that were recognised by Bing were not recognised by this app. I also tried to list all the flowers that are Yellow, and then again by other colours. The app only gave a few of the right colour and a large number of flowers that were no where near the colour. Admittedly it gave low percentage recognition for these.

On the plus side, the photos of the flowers on the database are excellent. So if you know the plant the information is great. I use it for verifying flowers that I think I have identified.

The developers need to improve the data retrieval algorithm as well as that for plant recognition.

Just been for a walk....

I've just been for a walk, excitedly taking my app with me, to see what it would add to my knowledge. The answer was, I'm afraid, nothing.
On this walk I saw fragrant orchids, lesser butterfly, and pyramidal. We often see burnt, common spotted, early purple, readymade and bee orchids. So it misses out fragrant, lesser butterfly and burnt.
I'll continue to see what we have on walks around us, and will report back.
If there is a way of reporting back to the designers, it should be made more prominent. And since some of the photos are better than others, it would be good to be able to send in photos.
