PlantSnap Plant Identification Reviews


Not identifying  natureteacher  1 star

I purchased this app hoping to help me educate when our in nature however so far it has not correctly identified any of the photos I posted to test it out :(


Plant ID  CrazyJenna343  3 star

I understand the identifying may not be correct most of the time, but I have yet to get a correct identification on plants. I took a photo of milkweed for example and came up with an edible banana. I give it three stars because I believe it has potential.

I have always loved taking pictures of plants and flowers that interest me, but I never know what they are. I have the most beautiful flower bed this year, and I want it back next year. This app makes it possible. No searching through nurseries trying to find the same plant. I can just look at my phone and ask for my plants, and be in and out planting in no time. You can also look at other beautiful plants and find out the information about them. The help area is great! YouTube videos to get you started and help you along. And if the search can't find the name of what you are interested in, you just push a button and they will research it for you and notify you when they know. It's just an awesome app. I have never seen anything like it. I̥ͦT̥ͦ'S̥ͦ ḀͦM̥ͦḀͦZ̥ͦI̥ͦN̥ͦG̥ͦ


Happy with results  gfy4mag  5 star

Snap has always got an answer, may not be totally correct, but gives a map of beginning research.


Performance of App  DerekMaul  1 star

Consistently inaccurate- I’m testing it on trees I know. I have no confidence this far that it will help when I don’t know... and isn’t that what the app is for??? Disappointed

New recruit  MarieB63  4 star

Have only been on this site all of 2 days at this stage and loving it 😊 A plant I’ve had for a long time I finally know what it is hahhaha 😁

Yea ol' me

Not good enough yet  Yea ol' me  2 star

First and foremost the concept is a great idea. I just purchased and took 5 pictures of fairly common plants in my garden, it failed to recognise one good quality picture, correctly identified one plant, and incorrectly identified three plants. That’s not good enough in my opinion.


Very Impressive!  NowMrNormal  4 star

I am cynical about most AI apps, and was hesitant to purchase this app. Most over promise and under deliver. However I work in IT and I was once a botany major... so the curiosity got the better of me. I have been testing this app on species I am familiar with and have been very impressed with the accuracy of the app. It suggests the correct genus 95% of the time! It will get the correct species about 60% of the time. Which is really high for such a complex task. For species I am unfamiliar with I can use the suggestions provided by the app and search online or reference a plant book to reach a conclusive identification. I am really impressed with this app. It is a really useful tool. It currently does not have the accuracy to solely rely on without other references, but with more people using this app the accuracy of the AI will only improve... then I will give it 5 stars. Even without 100% accuracy, it is a very valuable tool and has become one of my favourite apps!


Not accurate  coffenotcoffee  1 star

I took a photo of 4 common plants and it didn’t get any of them correct so I wouldn’t trust it on something I didn’t know


Mildly accurate but well made  Pippy2018  3 star

I was hoping this app would surprise me with its accuracy, but it didn’t. On its first outing it was correct maybe 50% of the time and crashed twice. Apart from that its well made and easy to use. I enjoy the explore option and look forward to seeing other’s contributions in AR mode. Hopefully it improves over time. I would love to see it expand to include bark identification as it is not always possible to snap leaves of high trees.

Irma Dellucci

Easy to use  Irma Dellucci  5 star

It is so easy to use. You take a shot of the plant part surveyed, it shows you what it found and you vsn save your findings on the gallery.


Good idea.  Erin_Zboncak  5 star

Such an awesome idea. You just don’t know!!! Thank you and may god bless you and your garden!!!

Tyree Orn 22

Very fast and accurate  Tyree Orn 22  5 star

I had a plant given to me which I planted in my backyard. It blossomed this year. Six inch blossoms! It’s a Hawaiian Hibiscus. I used iplant to get more information on how to treat it through the year. Very fast and accurate.

Jasmin Holmgren

Helpful for me  Jasmin Holmgren  5 star

It’s simple but well executed. It’s easy and logical to filter your search for an unknown plant.

Malik Svensson444

Good  Malik Svensson444  5 star

So far a great app and it has correctly identified my house plants. I would love to see this app with a small amount of gamification. For example giving stats on how many people have snapped the same plant, following other users, collecting rare and common plants.

Wizard of odds 1 &2

So easy!!  Wizard of odds 1 &2  5 star

This is the easiest way to identify any plant. I just love it, and love being able to help out my neighbors when they don’t know it’s growing in their yard. Highly recommend it.


Good concept  Farhad.Azarbakhsh  1 star

This app does a really poor job identifying anything, even the most common range, don't spend your money until they can get it right


Unsatisfied with this app  ShellyBill  1 star

This app has only found information on one plant I have submitted a picture of. Plus the information it provides is not on care or plant information that is useful to someone wanting to know how to care for typical plants.


Not accurate  Ssherry2018  1 star

I had flowers on my phone that are clear pictures. I know what they are (from reliable books and other confirmation) yet this app could not identify them correctly.


Works, occasionally!  Robmcsched  2 star

Agree with another reviewer. I think they are gathering data to improve the app—which needs improvement. I have taken lots of very clear close-ups of plants and with very clear and zoomed in flowers and it, more often than not—doesn’t even come close. I have tested this on flowers in planters that I already knew absolutely what they were as I bought and planted them myself. Multiple photos tried in various light and angles. Good luck with weeds and wildflowers as it is almost impossible to get what they deem to be the perfect photo for an ID. Thrilled when it does work. On a recent weed I was trying to ID, I sent them a query. Staff is responsive but be prepared to be severely reprimanded for not following instructions. I will say, I had a hard time (due to proximity) getting a good closeup of flowers and there were lots of leaves and buds. However, zoomed in close it was a very clear photo with leaves, stems, one flower and buds. I did try zooming in even closer with same lackluster results. There should have been more than enough to id the plant. Very argumentative. They sent me back a photo that I had sent them. They zoomed it a tiny bit more and claimed that it worked for them and implied that I am apparently not smart enough to submit a proper photo. I copied the (returned) photo into plantsnap, and still not a good ID. What? I then updated the app and resubmitted the same exact photo (you know, the one that they claimed worked, which was my photo). First time, no good. Second time (same exact photo unaltered) it came up as the third (but low) possibility. As another example, I tried to get it to ID poison hemlock awhile back (I knew what it was) and it did not even come close. That was with very close-up flowers, leaves and stems. Multiple close-ups, multiple tries. It didn’t even come up with the standard look-alikes—wild carrot and Queen Anne’s Lace. Looks like they are improving but definitely needs more work. Could be downright dangerous to somebody who might not know the difference as many plants are medicinal and many are highly poisonous. I would not rely on this app for a positive ID. I think I do remember a disclaimer somewhere. Since I bought it awhile back and it wasn’t expensive, I may continue to frustrate myself with it, hoping for improvements. It is somewhat entertaining. It can only improve. While they do have responsive support (I gave them a star for that), be prepared to be shamed for not being smart enough to take a perfect picture. I am not sure how I will be able to continue to drag my sad self out of bed and face the day, now that I know how truly stupid I must be! I will, however, find the energy to search for a better plant ID app.

Garbage app with great marketing  qy gh  1 star

Cannot identify a maple after a couple tries. Do not waste money on this. I have NEVER been able to identify a single plant or leaf with the app. Use google. It is free

Leslie L. Little

Works very well.  Leslie L. Little  5 star

Was able to identify some of my trees.

Selma R.Peake

Helpful  Selma R.Peake  5 star

Incredible app for anyone interested in nature or spend a lot of time in nature and want to know what flora surrounds you. Great to find out if the plants around you are dangerous or not.


Really useful app  MarcellaManning  5 star

Great for getting the kids into nature.

Rhonda D.Deangelis

OK  Rhonda D.Deangelis  5 star

I have verified that this works to identify peanut plants.


JMcC review  Tusnua2  5 star

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.


Good photos are key, but worked well  0044512  5 star

Taking good pics is key as it does machine learning and comparing to a database of known photos to correctly identify plants. But worked well for me on my tests.


2 out of 3?  SimonD71163  5 star

I’m a keen gardener in Dublin Ireland. Snapped my first 3 plants. It got my foxglove completely wrong with no other suggested matches near it. It got my Datura wrong but gave me an option to match it. The third it called blue daisy. Hmm.
