Ratings and Reviews
It’s a great start
I really enjoy this app. I have recently gotten interested in gardening and collecting houseplants, and have inherited several plants made from cuttings from family members, or bought discounted plants with no name from the hardware store. I’ve been trying to carefully choose appropriate plants for my home, and this app has helped me identify every no-name mystery plant I’ve stumbled upon.
I will say the app has only worked on the first try maybe once or twice. When I’m trying to identify a plant, I usually have to try snapping a photo from a few different angles before eventually it gets me the correct suggestion. It also has rarely given me the right plant name as the “most likely” suggestion, but I usually find it by viewing the other possible plant types.
I’m assuming that as more people use the app and the database grows, that the app will get smarter. At least I hope it will! Either way, it has been really useful for now and I’m happy to support the developer in the hopes that they will keep making the app better and smarter.

Thank you for being a part of PlantSnap, mouseling! Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can help you learn how to get the top result in your first try every time!
What a wonderful app, and a wonderful concept! Its not 100% accurate 100% of the time, but you honestly can’t expect it to be with something as diverse as plants. So far almost all of the plants I’ve tried this out on have been accurate (and I’ve been doing it on plants that I already know) and most of the ones where the best guess wasn’t correct had the correct plant in the “if it’s not this, then it might be one of these” area at the bottom of the screen.
For those of you that are salty about the app not being perfectly accurate every single time, you have to understand that with something like plants, many species are extremely similar to each other, and you can’t forget that these are living things with their own diversity amongst their own kind. You might have two red clovers side by side, but they’re not going to be *exactly* the same. The fact that this app is accurate more than 50% of the time is phenomenal, let alone the fact that probably 20 of the 30 something plants I’ve snapped have been correct.
The more people that add photos and data to this app, the more accurate it will be! Do not expect perfection, but expect to be wowed at how wonderful it is. I highly recommend the tutorials on how to take the best photos for the app to best “read” the picture as well, they’re very helpful.

Amazing App for any plant lover!
I absolutely love this app and cannot say enough good things about it. I love walking through different botanical gardens, greenhouses, or even just hiking, and now when I’m curious about a plant, or just think it looks interesting I can use Plant Snap! Not only does this let me look back on the plant later, but I also learn a lot of information about it. However I do have one improvement that would make the app even better. Because I love plants so much, I own several and was so happy that I could organize them online on Plant Snap. However I wish there was a section that talked about plant care specifically for that pant you take a picture of. I know this is a monumentally huge task given how many plants are in the system, but my primary use for the app is for organizing plants I grow myself. It would be really beneficial to learn growing technics (how difficult, how much water/sunlight, etc) for the plants you snap. Often times I’ll snap a plant in the wild and want to buy it from a nursery but I’ll have to leave the app and google the information instead of it being presented within the app. Overall though this is an amazing app and I am very happy with my purchase! Thank you so much for creating this app and continue to release amazing updates 🌱

Hi djkdjk2, thank you very much for being a part of PlantSnap! We are currently working to provide more information for each species on our database. It might just take some time and effort because of 585,000 species that we need to work on our database. But most of it have lot's of information about the species.
