This is harder to rate than I thought…

… what I mean is, I try reserving 5 stars for apps that are close to flawless in providing the service I bought it for.. this came very close, I like the concept, the app is user friendly however it lacks a glossy of bugs I tried to identify. Without knowing just how tough if not impossible it is to acquire everything! You may want to rate it with less! However, the fact that this app knows this, explaining this and other great facts inside, helps you realize this app just hasn’t been finished! It’s constantly asking for new material or correct what you believe it is.. (if you don’t know, don’t add it. There is this place called a library which hold so much information, I’m sure if your a true hobbyists, you’ll find your answer there, then add it!)
So basically this app needs our help to fill this apps glossy up! If this app is globally placed, we may even find a new species of arachnid or insect if we’re lucky! So that is why I want to give it a 5 but maybe as we add more constant, it’ll change.

Very great app even without subscription!

Although without buying a subscription, you get many popups, you can easily press “continue with limited version”. I’m considering buying a subscription because I use this app so often as a gardener! For example, today I was able to identify some green lacewing larvae that were helping my garden rid of aphids. I’ve successfully identified many insects on this app and it even helped me realize that the butterflies I was finding weren’t painted ladies, but a different species. I really love using this and learning more and more about bugs. I’ve been able to identify so many spiders including crab spiders, orb weavers and a species of harvestmen I didn’t even know existed! This app also has all ladybug identifications and has helped me identify many different species. I cannot recommend this app enough.

For those saying this app doesn’t give enough information about species- you can always look them up and learn more as well as how to deal with pests. (It’s what I do!) I use this app to get my identifications and then do further research.

I also love how you can look back on all your identifications and pictures you have. It really feels like you have your own little collection made by you.

Needs Work

An ok app. Like many ID apps, it will often try to identify to a level not possible from the photo, resulting in misinformation. For example, if I post a photo that is only identifiable to family level, it will always attempt a species ID anyway. As far as accuracy goes, it is hit or miss. I was pleasantly surprised with the accuracy of some ID’s such as a least skipper photo I posted, but it also gets other obvious and distinctive insects such as the Coral hairstreak wrong (I study butterflies so that is largely what I tested). For many insects this probably isn’t a big deal, but it would be best to leave ID’s at a higher taxon level like family or genus if it is just going to make inaccurate species ID’s. It would also be good to have a comment system of sorts since correcting the ID is confusing if the photo isn’t identifiable to species and the app put the insect in the wrong family or order. Information about the insects themselves is usually fine but some entries are about the wrong organism (Ex: Mormon fritillary description talks about Tortoiseshell butterflies which are in a different genus). I can’t see a reason to use it over other ID apps unless accuracy improves.

Developer Response ,

Sorry to hear you are unsatisfied with the identification accuracy. Please try changing the angle or distance to make sure the camera is focused on the species. If it still doesn't work, please email to support@pictureinsect.com for further assistance.
