Looking for app just like this !  Aoi Yuuka  5 star

I actually like to plant many trees and flower and looking for some handy portable app that search name of flower and tree and just found it !!

Waiting for more better UI with good search option to come on next update , Other than that Thanks for making this nice portable plant search app ! 🌲🙂


Amazing and accurate  MyMaui77  5 star

I just downloaded this app and it’s such an amazing tool for me as I photograph mostly plants and flowers. I had no idea the names of them. Now I not only know the names I know the story behind. I recommend this app very highly. Wish I knew about it before.


dont buy  Jorg546  2 star

Very low success rate. Have used on several plant I know and app either doesn't identify it correctly, or is offered as the 4th or 5th option. Waste of money.


Room for Improvement  11danh  3 star

Super cool concept, but I find it uses a lot of battery and that its identification capabilities are not what I expected.

Not for trees. OMG

Capt. Howie

Incredible!  Capt. Howie  5 star

I’m a landscaper specializing in tropical horticulture in Hawaii. The accuracy for even rare and arcane species is phenomenal.


Incredible!  Tetelestai87  5 star

This app is simply amazing. I have never seen anything like it before

Caribbean Jim

Easy to use and informative  Caribbean Jim  4 star

But hardly any plants from the tropics, except for ones that are commercially popular. So if you live on a Caribbean island, it won’t help you much as you traipse around your yard full of lush but unknown plants.


No Thanks  ggfgfgfgd  1 star

According to the fine print the developer wants to access the camera, copy and store all the photos and track my whereabouts. Why would i pay someone to do this? i would rather just not know the identity of a weird plant. Thanks anyway.


Paid app makes you sign in with personal info  HP4Lyfe2018  1 star



Disappointed  LaurzaM  2 star

Only seems to identify the most common plants (mint, lavender, rosemary) in my garden where I tested it. Didn’t get dandelion though! Other garden plants were very wrong.


Not enough success  Colin1955  2 star

Of all the times I’ve used this program, I have only had a couple of items identified, even for very common plants that I have used to test it.

Barry Homestead

So helpful  Barry Homestead  5 star

Just bought a few acres in Brisbane, Australia and the old bloke spent the last 40 years planting random plants everywhere. So far the app has nailed 5 out of the 5 flowering plants I’ve tried. Couldn’t identify a big-leafed plant but not too worried. This app will save me hours on the web trying to self identify. Would recommend!!


Theives!!  JJ0802m  1 star

I purchased this app for a cost of $5.99 and within a week they have taken $4.49, $4.49 and THEN a whopping $34.99!!! App support button does not work and i have no other way to complain. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS APP!


Doesn’t work in Australia  Grandman2  1 star

This was very disappointing. Heard great things but the app had been unable to correctly identify a single plant I have tried. It may work in other countries but don’t waste your money if you live in Australia.

botany potts

Be prepared to try many times!  botany potts  1 star

Took literally 20 attempts to find the correct name for the carrotwood tree! I will those 30 mins of my life back! 😩


Plantsnap  igrowplants  2 star

Unfortunately this app is often wrong when I’ve snapped something I 100% know the name of, just to see how accurate it is


Overall decent experience.  Smoothdrummer29  4 star

Armeria Maritima (Seapink). We’ve had these in a narrow strip of our garden for over 8 years. We’ve also had around a dozen queries as to what they are - and I now can confidently forward an answer thanks to this app. Initially, I followed the developer’s instructions to a T; framed the flower correctly, perfect focus, good natural light, but then... as I attempted to initiate the zoom function, it proceeded to crash. Not once, but EACH (and every) time. Still does. I’ve found if the original photo is of a good enough quality, PlantSnap functions at its claimed accuracy. I would recommend this app for the novice & seasoned gardeners alike; however, bear in mind the enormous database the algorithm must filter through (over half a million) to match to your photo, so prepare for a consistent 5-15 seconds prior to its result (& subsequent other suggestions). The ‘Rate Me’ pop-up was quite annoying as I’d liked to have test-drove it for an hour first without the constant annoyance. Overall, a 4-star rating until the zoom function is rectified.


Great job!  MokimSo  5 star

Needs more community involvement though, it seems like not many people are using and engaging in this app, but I’m sure no one can miss out this wonderful app, so I encourgae you guys to share more pictures and your findings, make the app more lively!

Phoebe Foott

Very, very nice!  Phoebe Foott  5 star

I was not expecting to see the image recognition so effective. Took me only the first try and got the correct name right instantly. Gotta say I’m impressed

Juanita J. Grenier

Comes in really handy  Juanita J. Grenier  5 star

Very informative. It can name many of the plants I encountered while walking along the riverside. Great pocket app for tree lovers.


What can't this app do?  ScottBalderas  5 star

At first, I thought this app only works with trees and flowers but it eventually recognized the strange melon in my backyard this morning :o Amazing!


Amazing!  Someoneloveme007  5 star

Just downloaded this app last week and now my photo library is full of trees can’t stop taking pictures


More instruction would be great  coolboy221191  5 star

Suppose that you compose some tutorials on how to take the best photos for the app to best “read” the picture, it would be much better. Anyway, nice catch! Keep up the good work~


Love the app  badboy0091  5 star

Could you add a Favorite button or a tree pocket something like that to PlantSnap functions to save all the trees I have searched for? I find it difficult to look back all those trees. Thanks.


Room for improvements  SpencerBoy_123  5 star

I really like the feature of submitting my photo for someone to actually look at because sometimes I could not recognize the tree even after seeing several PlantSnap suggestions. Hope you will improve it.

Darrell J. Bell

Love everything about it  Darrell J. Bell  5 star

I liked the whole concept of this plant identification app. The capture, the sharing, all those tips about planting flowers, its large collection of species… There is nothing to dislike about it. My flora life is getting better than ever! Love it!


This is so good  CampbellNoval  5 star

It’s surprising that this app could recognize my tree within one shot. I have tried taking several different angle to see if it miss the spot but no :o this is insane :ooo

Amanda Anh

More than an identification app  Amanda Anh  5 star

Really useful app. I am having trouble with my little cactus and the people up here help me a lot. It’s alive now <3 thanks guy, keep up the good work

Patrick S. Phillips

Keep going <3  Patrick S. Phillips  5 star

My children love it. It’s lovely seeing them running outside looking for tree instead of sitting in front of the TV for hours. Perfect, 10/10! Hope you get more feature for the kids.


90% accurate  jimpo50  4 star

I have tried this app on known plants and have found it to be accurate 90%of the time. it does a great job for the casual Gardner

We moved house this year and we have a wealth of plants in our new home and PlantSnap is vital to our enjoyment of the experience. Thank you.

Not impressed  TabbyBrute  1 star

I got this on the understanding that it would identify plants that I came across and liked the look of, and maybe wanted to buy later. So far I’ve snapped about 40 flowers, and it has successfully identified about 10-12. Some of the suggestions have bordered on ridiculous. However, as a plant encyclopedia it’s very good, hence one rather than no stars. UPDATE: Based on developer feedback, lowering rating to one star. As I say it’s still a very good plant encyclopedia, but to accuse your customer of jumping to conclusions and to tell them numerous times to read the instructions, reviews and watch videos is condescending in the extreme. Writing to support to highlight inaccuracies is something I’d expect to do in development or testing phases or for a beta release, not once the product has been released for sale. It’s marketed as something to use on a hike to identify plants in seconds and it does identify plants in seconds, my point was that I had found this regularly quite inaccurate, making ridiculous suggestions on more than one occasion. I see that anyone who has given this a poor review gets the same response pasted to them, essentially saying it’s the customers fault for not reading instructions or showing a video of the app identifying something. We can’t all be wrong developer!


Having to log in using Facebook or gmail  Timmyr100  3 star

The app will not give you full access to all its features after paying for it unless you sign in with Facebook or gmail. There is no other option. Had I realised the app needed to gather info I would not have bought it.

At end of back garden.


Waste of time and money  berxyz  1 star

It really does NOT work. I have tried it so so often, even on plants I actually know. I have never gotten a correct identification. Time to delete this app and try and find one that works


Great app  Ciovan  5 star

Took a few mins to work out how to take decent images, first took pics of the ones I knew, 100% accurate


Not good  Harleyrrab  1 star

Has never Identified a plant correctly


Plantsnap  Mar955848  5 star

This is rubbish. It does not identify anything. I tried tens of snaps but none is identified.
