Ratings and Reviews
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. Please write to email@example.com if you need help or have questions or suggestions in the future. Tech support is there 24/7/365!
A little bit of patience is all you need!
This app is truly amazing, despite it not always providing an EXACT match every single time. No two plants look exactly the same, but this app provides more than one result, and from the other options, you can find other plants in the same family, look that up in the search icon, and you can narrow your results down quite easily and soon find your plant! It’s almost IMPOSSIBLE to get your exact match by just snapping a picture and that’s not the apps fault necessarily because the diversity in plants is just too wide for any database to pinpoint an exact match first time around, but it does give you many different approaches to finding your plant in the end. All it takes is a little patience:) As for a suggestion towards the future update to improve the app’s function, I wish that there was a way that you could add plants to your collection from what you search in the search bar. I would love to document all of my plants in my collection, even the ones that I already know the names of, but I have to go through the process of taking a picture, suggesting a name, and then finding my plant and adding it that way. It’s not the end of the world, but I would still love for that to be a new feature!
