Wow!! New hobby! LOL

Ok I was skeptical but I am a real person and this app really works. LOL Like most people, I buy plants then forget what I bought. I have used it to identify 5 personal plants and one camera roll pic that I took while traveling out of state. I was able to say with confidence that the app gave me an accurate result on each. The fern was a little tricky but that’s a tough one. My fiancé also tried, failed and gave up. Haha I tried to inform him (without gloating) that he simply didn’t give it a chance. Here are my tips:
1.) Feel free to lift branches/reposition flowers to put the plant in an ideal position. That way you are sure to get flowers and leaves in the same shot.
2.) Do not expect the result preview to be the same color/size as your exact plant. (My fiancé’s mistake. Hehe) Keep in mind that plants come in several varieties. A quick google search can help you narrow results and find your exact variation for confirmation.
3.) SAVE!! Once you find your winner, don’t forget to save the result. I plan to use mine to make plant name tags so my visitors can enjoy knowing more about the beauty they are seeing.
Happy Trails!

It’ll get you close!

I docked a star for rarely getting the plant correct as the first option but usually having it on the list of other options somewhere down the line. More on that and the reason for the second star I docked. One identification told me my plant (my fault for not knowing my own plants 😅) was a zamioculcas zamiifolia. But then I found in a google search my specific ZZ is a zenzi. So I searched zenzi in the app and found that it’s not anywhere in the app. So while this is an excellent start and well worth the $1 a month (first 3 months) some more info needs to be entered from the farmer’s almanac. 😁
Actually I’m gonna add another star because it is super helpful. Eh. To hell with it! 5 stars! Hahaha I’m a push over! This app is amazing actually. I wouldn’t know what I had in front of me without it. Fair’s fair. Thanks so much!

Mediocre app, atrocious developers

I was excited to first use this app and even looked at tutorials to try and get it to identify plants better but in the end I have to agree with almost everyone else and say that this app doesn’t work as it should even when “used properly” the developer team just copies and pastes responses to the reviews and are very passive aggressive, and claim to be here to help but in reality they just want to appear like they are ready to help, but in fact have no desire to fix their mediocre identification app OR to help people “properly use” the app, they are all about appearances and want to give the illusion that they are doing -anything- the bad reviews are right, and if you take a look at the developer responses to them, you’ll see a pattern of rude deflection without tackling any real issues it’s basically just “our app works, you’re not using it right, we can’t help you use it right if you don’t taaalk to us” well people have tried, left their reviews, and done their part, the only problem left is the actual developers not thinking they did any wrong and telling others it’s their fault. This app and the makers are NOT EVEN WORTH THE TIME. Move along to ‘picture this’ at least that one can’t identify simple herbs.

Hello Nerdwolff! Very sorry for your trouble, but we are here to help! PLEASE write to so tech support can help you.

PlantSnap has no trouble with herbs, or any other kind of plants, when used properly. Here is a video showing PlantSnap identifying herbs:

PlantSnap covers every country on Earth with 585,000 species in our database, translated into 35 languages, and is 96% accurate when used properly. We have a 4-star+ rating in all countries (most people simply give a star rating rather than write reviews), which means 4.5 out of every 5 people have great success with PlantSnap. We want YOU to be in that group!

If you are having trouble with identification, this is probably a framing issue with your photos. As with all technology, it is very important to follow directions, especially when the app is trying to distinguish between the 585,000 species in our database. PLEASE watch the instructional video and read the directions inside the app: (Instructional video) then write to if you still need help. Our tech team is there 24/7/365 to help with any issue you may have.
