Ratings and Reviews
It appears as though the developers have abandoned this app or they are entirely dependent on the users to do the identification? The UI could use improving. It would be nice if once you enlarge the image you could swipe or click to the next image enlarged. Creating that function would probably make it more likely that users would interact and identify at least the plants that they knew since the view if the image would be easier to view on a smartphone!
Needs update for phone platform optimization
I love this app, the community has helped me identify so many plants! But the most recent update made it not very compatible for my iPhone, causing half the buttons to not be on the screen, thus my app is stuck in Dutch because I can only select the Netherlands region although I live in the US. Please fix this glitch with another update so that I may enjoy using this app once again! I’d give it 5 stars if this glitch was fixed!
Very helpful if not perfect
I'm not a horticulturalist, just a garden-variety plant lover, and this app is fun. I saw an unusual tree/bush on my walk that looked a little like a dogwood but not quite. It got identified quickly as a dogwood. Good enough for me.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
