  • Great idea—poor execution

    By Ndean10016
    It just doesn’t work. I tried a few times, even after upgrading to handle iOS 11, but the app couldn’t ID any of the flowers I photographed.

    Attempted to identify 6 basic plants and flowers I purchased at Home Depot, but it was only able to identify one. Using the most current version of IOS. This app would be great if it worked. Update: Prior to posting the original review, we followed the instructions in the welcome email, watched the video, and even tried it on multiple devices. Maybe the developer should take the feedback as an opportunity to improve the app instead of becoming defensive. Clearly, with 3.5 stars and after reading the reviews, many people are having issues. So, if there are more secrets to getting the app to work, make the information public instead of asking people to privately email support.
  • I should not have to register to use the app.

    By Terminal Junkie
    I paid for the app, that should enable all features to use the app unless indicated or expressed elsewhere. I don't want to register. I don't want to give you my email. I don't want email from you. I don't want you tracking me. I don't want you sharing my information. Requiring users to register for a paid mobile app is a basic antipattern for app-development.
  • Works great

    Needs good pictures which isn't always possible
  • Disappointing

    By sgtlnd
    I literally just downloaded the “updated version” and every image I took was not identified correctly. I followed all directions and watched the video. I grow a lot of vegetable plants and none were identified. I tried to see if it would recognize an image of a peony in my photo collection but no luck. Wish I had read all the reviews before downloading.
  • Fail

    By C Stovall
    I just downloaded and followed instructions trying multiple pictures. One successful identification only. Seems to do a poor job when just identifying with leaf on a tree.
  • Science fiction come to life

    Amazing app! iPhones are getting closer and closer to being just like Star Trek Tricoders! PlantSnap works incredibly well, and I was very skeptical. Highly recommend! *UPDATE* I needed this update because 11.0.2 iOS version had caused problems. Marsh grass that I had trouble with previously is now identified! I think they must have added more species because I got a result on a hike yesterday on a mushroom that wasn't identified before. Seems to work well on succulents and cacti, and now seems to work with mushrooms, too! Just saved me from poison ivy!
  • Not as advertised

    By Tswaims
    Tried it on 5 common flowers, it identified 1,
  • Doesn’t work

    Does not work
  • Gimme a break

    By Mug620
    I’ll be getting a refund, I wanted to take pictures of a plant not give out all my personal info. This doesn’t even allow you to open the app without mining your email address. UPDATE- developer responds telling me that they want all that info so they can “help me”. Help me by not making me give out my info, I have enough cialis I don’t need more spam about cialis.
