I did the free week trial of premium access, and loved the plant identification part. I loved that part so much i subscibed to the yearly. And canceled the next day. The problem, is that the premium is supposed to give unlimited plant identification. But the free week has only has three or so free, before you have to buy another by watching an ad or sharing it on face book or something. Even though i bought a subscription, i still could not access the ident, because my subscription didnt start until the free week ended. And the “free week” forced me to watch ads to get idents. This was yesterday, so i sent them an email about the problem. Today, i still hadnt received a reply. So Today i had to earn an ident. I hate ads, so i tried sharing to fb. i tried sharing to earn a free ident, but it couldnt connect. It asked if i wanted to automatically connect when available, i said yes. Then the screen went dark and i could get back to other features of the app. 45 minutes later, it was still dark. Total bs. I canceled, since they didnt even bother to reply to my email. Wish i could give it a 5 star, but the bugs and bad customer service forces me to give only a fair rating.
I’ve tried several plant ID apps and Picture This is by far the best. It’s easy to use and I often get a match for the plant I am trying to ID. I like that the common and Latin name are often both provided. It’s very helpful that there are pics in the database of plants at different stages of growth—some flowers look very different as they move through the stages, which can make identifying them difficult. It works best for me if I take pics of plants and then go in the house and have my laptop handy as I use the app to ID them. I can see everything better and if I am unsure of the ID provided I can hop on the computer to do a search. One frustration: once you add a pic, if you can’t ID it right away but figure it out later, you cannot update the listing—you can only add a comment, so it always shows as unidentified. I also wish there was a way to sort the listings in your collection rather only having them listed in reverse chronological order. If there can only be one sort order, I would prefer alphabetical so I could easily see and delete duplicates and have pics of the same plant at different stages grouped by together. I love being able to see pics from gardeners all over the place and make comments and read the comments of others.
Keep a history of the photos I take like a scrap book. That’s what I want for this app to do for me also... I take pictures and I like knowing where I take them that way I can go back and find them again with the info about the plant under my picture I have taken, maybe with some other example pictures from app sources. Then all the plant info so I don’t have to look them up again and have the app re-identity the plant I’ve already looked up once. I also want a map of only my plants, not just the ones that other people and I have loaded onto your public map. Maybe I just haven’t found some of these features that I have described yet, I’m not saying some of them don’t exist within the app, but I would like to see it do more personalized things too, other than just five different frame styles. THIS APP DOES EXACTLY WHAT I EXPECTED FROM IT AND WAS SURPRISED AT HOW WELL IT WORKED IN THE AREA OF IDENTIFYING PLANTS.
I used this app for some succulents and cacti and it was mostly good. It could not differentiate between different echeveria types, which was disappointing. It also has blurry pictures for some of its plants which makes it hard to tell if I’ve got the right ID. It did well with a cactus and another succulent, though. Many people have been upset about the free trial thing. It is very misleading unless you read prior reviews. When you first open the app it will ask if you want to sign up for premium or use it for free. One would think that using it for free just means using it for free, but that actually starts a free trial which apparently is a pain to get out of. If you really want to use the free version you have to click the X in the top right of the screen. You will not have to enter any information and you will have 6 free IDs. I used those up and don’t need more, so I will be deleting the app. I’ll figure out my echeverias on my own.
As a plant enthusiast, this app has helped me identify a number of mystery plants own or have seen. It’s fun to scroll through and help others identify their unknown plants too. However, I’ve come across a number of identifications that are suggested incorrectly (wildly incorrect!) and even some “accepted” identifications that are incorrect (you can add your identified plant to the gallery - however there’s nothing stopping you from adding your misidentified plant to the compilation of existing images). there are also a number duplicate identification options, since you can add your own if you don’t find your plant but know what it is (misspelling or an added space won’t bring up the existing entry, so some people add their own). I think this app has tons of potential and appears to be one of the more accurate and user friendly apps for this niche. I’d love to see community moderators (think stack exchange) and some work preventing dups and inaccurate information.

“Very impressed. While not perfect, it can distinguish with high accuracy between different species in our collection of rare plants. It can even recognise down to cultivar sometimes - amazing. Amazed how it can work with any photo and it will give recognition a go - with impressive accuracy.”
