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.
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 🌱
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!
This app is absolutely phenomenal! I am currently working on my first year of plant studies in my high school botany-prep class, and this app works wonders! Yes, of course it is not 100% accurate, but then again, it removes all instances of human error, so the ONLY ways that it could mistake a plant would be that, for one, the photographer could be doing a not-so-great job at capturing the plant, or that the database has little instances of the plant. The only way to cure that? Continue to use the app! As thousands of people continuously take pictures of plants and post them here, looking for an answer to their questionable identification, the software will only get better! Practice makes perfect, of course, and no human botanist can start off naming every species of haworthia, so why expect that from a machine MADE by humans? Not everyone is perfect, nor is every software. No offense to the creator(s), of course, as I am sure they will agree. I am very grateful that this application was taken time on, perfected, and released in a finished state. Some apps of this nature cannot state the same, sadly. Again, thank you for spending the time to create this app, and, to all of you that doubt or slander this creation, give it a chance. It might just surprise you. 😉
So I read the reviews and thought maybe this app would be a great idea but I take pictures of very simple common plants and the majority of the time it does not read it properly. I’ve had the app for 15 minutes now and I’m extremely annoyed I have to constantly take pictures over again because the app is not processing the plants and if it does process the picture it brings up plants that are not even in the same species. I shouldn’t have to take a picture of one plant five times to get the name it kind of feels like I just wasted my $20 purchasing this app. I’ve already had to send two plants to them to be identified because the app cannot identify the plant which to me is annoying this app is supposed to be a plant identification app it’s supposed to be as simple as snapping a picture of the plant and you being able to receive all the information your seeking on the plant it is your searching for but that doesn’t seem to be the case. I have over 150 indoor plants I’m not gonna sit here and take five pictures of each plant just to get the name I’m hoping the developers will read this and fix these issues.
