  • 9 out of 10 wrong

    By camlittl
    I got the app for my cactus collection to identify and teach me more about my plants. Not just on cactus but on common landscaping flowers it could NOT get it right. I watched the how to videos and have it literally 20-30 tries and it got one right on the second true on the same plant and the other it got only the genus. Only 2 correct.
  • It has no Idea. The app is not worth the money.

    You can take a picture knowing what it is and it will say it is something completely different. It will even call it something that wouldn’t grow in your area.It called poison ivy Hydriastele cariosa which will not make you itch.
  • Worth it

    Very good!
  • Fun but...

    Only got 1 out of 3. The most hilarious was identifying a California Poppy as a tulip. You know I am using it properly I followed directions carefully or at least I believe I did. That being said the average is getting much much better. Also I can’t imagine just how difficult this must be when a simple change in ph can completely alter a bloom’s color. I’m having fun with it even when it makes a mistake and when it gets it (l check with more knowledgeable people if necessary) I learn something like a primrose can be a really ugly plant.
  • Absolutely terrible

    By Mjssjiff
    This app is a horrible ripoff. It told me that a strawberry plant was poison ivy. Do not buy does not work.
  • Ansolute crap

    By reviewer#4873545
    Couldn’t identify - sunflower ! - jalapeno pepper plant - rosemary Wrongly identified calendula (marygold) as buttercup, that looks completely different. At this point I gave up. Really angry about wasting $4 on this completely useless crap. On the other hand - free app iNaturalist correctly identified all 4 at first attempt I demand refund !
  • It’s ok

    By flowerwold
    I wish the care of the plants was included in the details. Only 2 of the plants have been easily identified
  • Inaccuracies

    By AnnFog
    It either doesn’t know or inaccurately identifies. Disappointed.
  • I could send a photo of bread and get the same result

    By NatGuido7
    This app has helped me identify only one plant. I take clear photos everytime, I get the most random looking results back that have zero similarity.
  • No help at all

    By momsy3229
    I submitted a bright pink flower that turned out to be a common sweet pea growing in a wild location; the app’s response was a small pale yellow orchid...not a close enough guess to have paid $4 for, in my opinion.
