  • Not impressed

    By BITEradiome
    I take a lot of plant and flower pictures. Looked forward to app identifying plants. I carefully follow the instructions provided and this app fails most of the time.
  • Not identifying as they should.

  • Don’t waste your money

    By nonajens
    I tried on plants I knew what they were and it was not even close.. I took the snapshot correctly ..
  • Has Never identified anything correctly

    By Sidekick48
    I’ve tried to use this app per directions, not per the directions and any which way possible but it has yet to identify even the most common weeds and shrubs correctly. Huge disappointment.
  • Super particular

    By divinewill
    This app sounds great - until you try it out. I had photos (cropped and zoomed per the demo) of 4 plants, out of which it properly identified only one - the pansy, because of its particular shape probably. The rest had more of the round traditional shape with lots of petals - and no matter how many angles I tried all I got was “rose”... in the case of kalanchoe, I sent in the photo of my plant to the customer support and they were able to get it identified - yet it took me 7 tries (!!!) of all different angles, zoomed in and out, foliage or not , to get to their result - and even then I had to take a pic of the EXACT same flower cluster at that same angle to do it. None other clusters seemed to be the same plant I guess?? Then they tell me it’s user error and it’s not eligible for refund - which at this point it’s not about the 4 bucks at all, it’s about the customer support and understanding. They were quick to get back to me, but the answers just were not helpful at all. Super frustrating.
  • Where do we request refunds?

    By Kedamour_
    Save your money! This app has failed to name nearly all of the plants in my yard.
  • Doesn’t work

    By Jonplasencia9906
    All the reviews are so wrong. 0/10 plants and trees 100% wrong. Don’t waste your money.
  • Don't buy

    By unhappytreelover
    Why do I need to make an account to use this app. They're looking for email, phone number, dat of birth...and allow cookies????? I'm sorry I didn't read the reviews first. I paid for the app but I refuse to give the information.Don't buy it's a total scam.
  • Pain in the butt

    By HelterL
    I gotta agree with the other negative reviews. I used a FREE app to identify a house plant that this app wasn't able to identify for me using the same pic. Not easy to use and DOES NOT include info on how to care for the plants you're looking up. Really annoyed and dissapointed.
