Libbby213 - Fabulous and useful
Incredibly useful app. Does an awesome job identifying plants and shows great photo examples so you can be sure you’re getting the right results! Has care tips, tells you if a plant is potentially hazardous, shows commonly asked questions and their answers, and so much more. Love that I can “save to my garden” and look back at what I’ve scanned and reread the info anytime. Love the “diagnose” feature as well!! Had helped us identify different diseases and root rot and gives advice for care. Turns out we planted some (hardware store purchased) basil that had some infection in the roots that seeps into the soil, so now we can’t plant basil or mint or anything in our garden for several years. Would never have known without this app! Would have just thought the stalks were turning black because I have a black thumb 😂
My only critique is the cost of the “full version” of the app. I would be *happy* to pay the developers for their hard work on this app because it’s really so incredible, but $30 a YEAR is much too steep for me. What happened to apps being a couple bucks at most? What’s the deal with this whole yearly subscription thing?? I personally feel like the creators would make more money by charging less and having more buyers, but I’m no accountant. I’ll just keep clicking “continue with free version” til the cows come home.
Slumbertime101 - A truly excellent app!
I recently found myself with some time on my hands to hike the trails of Balboa Park in San Diego. I practiced herbal medicine for many years under my acupuncture license in several states, but it's been a long time since I identified and collected plants in the wild. So, I thought it would be fun if I could identify some of the local plants. Spoiler alert: most of them do not appear to be of any medicinal value, but they're still fun to look at. This is the second or third app of this sort that I have tested, and it is infinitely better than any of the others.
When you first open the app, it looks like you need to buy a subscription to use it, but that is not the case. You can dismiss the subscription prompt and open the camera to snap a pic. I'm not sure exactly what you get with the subscription, but it looks like it would be useful for a serious hobbyist and awesome for serious home gardening enthusiasts and organic farmers. In fact, an organic farmer friend of mine says that he regularly uses it to identify weeds in his crops. The only thing I've run across so far that I can't do with the free version is save the photos. There may also be a limit to the total number of pictures per day, but I am not sure and definitely have yet to max out on one of my hikes.
Enthusiastically recommended with no conflict of interest.
NC1 - Not specific Enough, Had trouble identifying Pine and Crab Apple
Overall, I like the App. I didn’t have time to try the ‘diagnostic’ part of the App. I used it to identify some trees, flowers, bushes and vegetables in my yard and my neighbors’ yards. It did pretty well, identifying about 80% accuracy. It had difficulty identifying the pine trees and it never got the Crab Apple correct (which is small right now, and has no flowers). It identified Rose of Sharon plant, but could not tell me which color flowers were on each plant. Similarly, it got the Garden Dahlia correct, but could not further differentiate the type of flowers on the plant. The nice part is that you could send instant feedback if it identifies a plant incorrectly, and you know what the plant should be! If you don’t know, you can still send feedback easily. I couldn’t find a way to categorize my plants into Trees, bushes, flowers or vegetable garden plants. That improvement would be awesome! I could not create a separate tab for another person’s yard plants. That would make it better for people who might want to use it for their gardening business. This App shows promise, but I don’t want to pay $30 a year for the App. Nice App, but needs better plant differentiation and customization into Trees, bushes, vegetables, etc… I like that they have some gardening books in the App, but you can’t download them and read in another reader App. You must read them in the App.
AvocadoWizard - Great app with little disturbance
I love this app It’s so easy to just whip out the app anywhere and snap a pic of any plant and get almost instant results with nice information to annoy your family with! There is only two problems I have encountered. The most pressing problem is that if no WiFi is available you obviously must use data to get results. This isn’t much of a problem as everyone now a days has data or some form of connection. I have a solution for this but first I will say the second problem I have with this app is that it’s constantly pushing you to purchase the subscription. You can easily press the x at the top right corner but I think it’s very easy to accidentally buy it. Now back to my solution for the data thing. I suggest that the app devs make an option to download the entire database on your phone. This would obviously take up some space on your phone but I think it’s worth it. Also I feel that this feature should only be available for subscribed members. Don’t raise the price or anything because I think it’s quite pricey as is. Other than that this app is great! I’ve seen a few apps like this where you take a picture and it takes like 12 hours for results. I think that’s ridiculous. This app is instant. 10/5
Plaid11 - Great app
This app does wonders. I may not use it all that often but it is great when I do. The only downside, like a couple other posts, I thought they changed it to where you had to pay to use it. They have it to where the subscription comes up right away and it looks like the only way to do anything is by purchasing the subscription. There a “restore” in the top left and a “cancel” in the top right. The issue with those, they are grayed out so much that they aren’t the easiest to see. I saw the restore one first and it still took quite a while to see the cancel. Where most may not have an issue with finding the cancel so you can advance without purchasing the subscription, some may have a harder time locating the “cancel” and just delete the app and give a bad review. I had this downloaded for quite a long time and have used it before and don’t ever remember the subscription thing being there when you first open. I noticed it months ago and figured it was because I was using iOS 15 beta. Clearly that’s not the case anymore but I didn’t notice the “cancel” in the top right. I would suggest not having it grayed out but making both of those completely white if you’re going to have them so small. 5 star app aside from that issue.
Goobwar - Amazing
I manage an academic greenhouse and this app has actually helped me to narrow down the taxonomy for a few specimen that have been left unidentified or completely misidentified for years. The newer feature that identifies plant stress has also been an extremely useful teaching tool in helping my students understand the signs and symptoms of plant pest and pathogen infestations. The invasives warning has been especially useful for my students to understand and identify invasives on the campus ecological preserve too. I will be downloading this app on all devices for students in ecology to use this upcoming semester. Love it and frequently recommend to everyone even off campus.
It’s obviously not perfect (not sure why some would think a plant ID app would work on mushrooms haha) but it is accurate in providing the correct genera or at least family which can then be used in conjunction with a field guide. As someone who has built multiple phone applications myself and lives a life centered around botany and computer science, I honestly am beyond impressed. I just hope most of the features remain free (if that changes possibly provide a university bundle subscription?) :)
**note: I have not tried the app on unidentified specimen in the herbarium yet but am very curious
爱棋魂的人 - Picture This!
Recently, there has been some sort of fake strawberry in our backyard. We knew it wasn’t a real strawberry since it wouldn’t produce flowers and fruit. So I installed picture this and made some experiments. I realized that picture this could not only identify a plant from its flower - it could also do the same from a photo with leaves! When I took A picture of a tomato, picture of this immediately identified that it was a tomato. When I took a picture of what I need to be a real strawberry’s leaf, Picture this accurately identified it as well. Then, came the real experiment. I took a picture of the fake strawberry, Picture this was able to accurately tell me that the fake strawberry was what it said to be a tall buttercup, which is different from a normal buttercup since it’s leaves are bigger. And that was very correct. About why I said that the tall buttercup didn’t produce flowers, I was wrong. Later, small yellow flowers grew. But that didn’t matter. I just pulled the fake strawberries or tall buttercups out and away. All thanks to the amazing Picture This, and rate it 5 stars for its incredible accuracy and help. So, thank you Picture This. I strongly recommend this app to you. Enjoy!
Annuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu - Not very accurate
So I tried this app, and some things weren’t correct. I took a picture of some lichen and needed some help identifying what type of lichen it was. I found this app and I thought “huh I’ll give it a spin”, and used the picture of the lichen. It said that the lichen, though completely covering the stick, was a Black Cherry Tree. I thought, “well, this isn’t right.” So then I was skeptical so I tried a picture of some Star Moss I had found to see if it could be trusted,(I’m a huge moss lover!). So I entered in the picture of the Star Moss and it said Moss Campion. So not 100% reliable, but it did say that the Star Moss was moss, but it wasn’t the right type. I entered in another picture of a mushroom I had found. It said it was a type of tree that stood about 98 feet tall, A MUSHROOM!
So I wouldn’t try it. I also saw that the ad was showing the wrong plants for poison oak and ivy and the other plant, but I know poisonous and dangerous things when I see it, and those weren’t dangerous on the ad they were showing. I live in the middle of the country out in Ohio, and I go into our woods a lot. So I know most plant species, like say an oak tree for example, a sycamore, different types of moss like badge moss and star moss and fern moss, etc. I am pretty skilled at it except for the lichens, and fungi, and epiphytes. So I do NOT recommend this app. Consult an expert for how to tell what type of plant it is, not this lying piece of garbage.
Hashbaz Ben - Great Content, Worst Business Model Ever
The app does a fabulous job identifying plants. I tried to trick it with a slightly wilted two-week-old bunch of cilantro in my fridge, but the app nailed it. It also identified the ginger I planted last month and which hasn’t fully developed its first leaf. Impressive. Yet the business model is the stupidest and sneakiest ever. I’d happily pay for the app to reward the hard work. But I’m never going to subscribe for $30 every year—much more than other apps I use daily. So instead of getting paid for a sale, the developers end up with nothing. And at every turn the app tries to trick you into subscribing. Click on the innocent “Continue” button as you identify a plant and you suddenly find yourself being asked to confirm your subscription. That happens perhaps a half dozen times every session — with only a faint grey “cancel” link in barely legible 3-point type to save you.
Why the developers, who clearly are smart folks, think that they’re like Microsoft (my Office subscription isn’t all that much more!) and that folks will want to subscribe for a substantial amount is a mystery. If I’d had the option just to buy the app with a one-time purchase I’d have paid and given it 5 stars (and they’d have gotten my money). As it is, I’ll give 3 stars and they get no payment. Mystifying.
Blanket Beauty - #1 among all education apps? You’ve got to be kidding!
A plant identification app has one primary purpose: to accurately identify plants. This one doesn’t. I live with a plant professional with over 35 years of experience. I purchased the app two days ago and since then have taken 48 photos of plants in our yard. Of these, Plant Identifier has accurately identified 20 of them. I took photos a second and third time at different angles and distances. In several cases, the app would come up with a different identification of the plant in the photo each time the photo was taken, but with another wrong identification. In some, the IDs were not even close to the correct name of the plant.
Not only that, but few of the plants I’ve photographed have been identified by variety—the most important way to compare plants within a particular genus or species. But with Plant Identifier, every snake plant is identified as just that, “snake plant,” no matter how different the many different varieties look from each other.
For those of you who thought you were purchasing a great plant identifier app, think again. Many of the plants you have identified using Plant Identifier have been misidentified, if my average so far of less than 50% accuracy has any merit at all. Unless you are fortunate enough to have a professional who knows the plants you are adding to your collection, as I have, I am sorry to have to tell you that you have purchased a bum steer.
Itsthatgurl1 - It’s ok - UPDATE!!!!!
Update: Not sure what’s going on since the recent update but I’m getting no internet errors when I try to complete the tasks. Everything else works as normal. But now I have overdue care tasks on all my plants. I’ve reached out to for help and it has not been fixed. Very disappointing. I paid for a full year so I’ve been trying to stick it out but I’m having to use other apps to track the care of my plants. I’ll most likely cancel my subscription and subscribe to the premium version of one of those instead.
Original: Its the best app I’ve found for identification and tracking but it’s far from great. It’s ID’d almost all of my plants as Jade Plants at some point and none of them are Jade. And most of the information provided is the same but has whatever plant you’re looking at inserted. So once you’ve read it a few times you’ll recognize it immediately on each new plant. That wouldn’t be terrible but the same pictures are used for every plant so they’re not really helpful at all. If I’m looking for propagation instructions for an aloe plant, why would I want to see pictures of the process for a crassula? Would also be helpful if you could combine results. I have some that were ID’d as one thing when I first got them but found out they were actually something else recently. It would be nice to combine those results to have an accurate record of those plants.
Ddthntstheus - Too many bugs
I did the free week trial of premium access, and loved the plant identification part. I loved that part so much i subscibed to the yearly. And canceled the next day. The problem, is that the premium is supposed to give unlimited plant identification. But the free week has only has three or so free, before you have to buy another by watching an ad or sharing it on face book or something. Even though i bought a subscription, i still could not access the ident, because my subscription didnt start until the free week ended. And the “free week” forced me to watch ads to get idents. This was yesterday, so i sent them an email about the problem. Today, i still hadnt received a reply. So Today i had to earn an ident. I hate ads, so i tried sharing to fb. i tried sharing to earn a free ident, but it couldnt connect. It asked if i wanted to automatically connect when available, i said yes. Then the screen went dark and i could get back to other features of the app. 45 minutes later, it was still dark. Total bs. I canceled, since they didnt even bother to reply to my email. Wish i could give it a 5 star, but the bugs and bad customer service forces me to give only a fair rating.
JEMMjams - Mostly great
I’ve tried several plant ID apps and Picture This is by far the best. It’s easy to use and I often get a match for the plant I am trying to ID. I like that the common and Latin name are often both provided. It’s very helpful that there are pics in the database of plants at different stages of growth—some flowers look very different as they move through the stages, which can make identifying them difficult. It works best for me if I take pics of plants and then go in the house and have my laptop handy as I use the app to ID them. I can see everything better and if I am unsure of the ID provided I can hop on the computer to do a search. One frustration: once you add a pic, if you can’t ID it right away but figure it out later, you cannot update the listing—you can only add a comment, so it always shows as unidentified. I also wish there was a way to sort the listings in your collection rather only having them listed in reverse chronological order. If there can only be one sort order, I would prefer alphabetical so I could easily see and delete duplicates and have pics of the same plant at different stages grouped by together. I love being able to see pics from gardeners all over the place and make comments and read the comments of others.
Sophie Owl - Amazing app!
This app is amazing! You can easily take pictures of any plant or tree, and it will give you the closest plants to it. I think it gets it correct 95% of the time! It isn’t absolutely perfect, but this is probably as close as it gets! It has a super useful Diagnosing option, that can let you figure out what is wrong with a plant, and describes in detail how to fix it, wether it is bugs, sunlight, water, or pests. Now that we are quarantined at home, I have been spending a lot of time in my garden, and this app is teaching me so much that I didn’t know. The only complaints that I have are the expenses of the premium level. I understand that the app designers have to make money somehow, but it is still too much for me. I am not a serious gardener, I just do it for fun. Maybe they could have different levels of premium, like a level for gardeners who are just curious, for gardeners who are very serious, and for garden professors, or photographers who need to learn about plants for their job. Anyways, I love this app a lot, and would totally recommend it for anyone who loves to grow plants. While it has some flaws, it is better than anything else out there.
Sarzeut - Don’t do it
Latest update: after reading countless other reviews, this has happened to SO MANY people who have downloaded this app. Whoever writes the “developer response” doesn’t seem to care. I have already emailed support with no response. This company is a scam. I have tried every way possible to end my subscription but any way I access my subscriptions, it does not allow me to cancel or end this membership. At this point I am forced to work with my bank about removing the charge. I just wish more would be done so that this can stop happening to other people in the future. I guess that’s how this company makes their money....
I have been attempting to end my membership for a week now after accidentally signing up for a premium membership. Seemed like I just picked up my phone and suddenly it was signing up for a subscription I didn’t want. I believe this app made it too easy for that to happen. I immediately attempted to end my membership and after checking my email - it forces me to manage the membership through iTunes. In order to do this properly, I’ve had to remove iTunes and re download it on my computer just to even get to the page they are trying to open from the link in the email. Overall, what I am trying to say is this app is NOT user friendly and I strongly believe they designed it in a way to take money from their customers and make it difficult to get it back.
AmyKMcIlwain - Tremendous Aide but needs a tiny ergonomics tweak…
App has been a wonderful help and identifying our very extensive garden that we recently acquired via a new home purchase. We have been able to identify dozens and dozens of flowers, weeds, and vegetables in our glorious verdant garden.
However with one tiny tweak to help with one-handed operations on an iPhone 13pro…If the app designers could add a back button at the bottom of the screen after taking a photo. When I take a picture aka scan a plant, I don’t necessarily want save it to my garden but just see what the results are mostly to determine if it is a weed. I usually take a picture with one hand and have a glove or tools in the other. My thumb can’t reach to the top left corner of my screen because of my larger size phone.I then have to let go of my tools and remove my glove so I can use two hands to hold the phone and hit the back button on the plant results page. Having a back button to go back to the scanning option at the bottom of the results screen would be ergonomically super helpful! I am constantly using this app to scan plants.
Baking in Bako - Professional biologist thumbs-up
I’m an environmental consultant with a wildlife ecology background, but in the last year have been finding myself in more of a botanist role. It’s been an interesting (frustrating) transition, there are literally thousands of plant species in California alone, and learning lesser-known family characteristics has been challenging...gotta love asters and poaceae...but it’s so gratifying when I can finally ID a plant that’s been bugging me.
I only just discovered this app about two months ago, on the recommendation of a fellow professional biologist, and it performs way above what I thought it would. I thought maybe it would identify common horticultural plants like tulips or almond trees. I’m sure it can, but it’s also very good at identifying naturalized plant species. The suggested species identifications are usually in the correct family and sometimes genus, and after checking afterward I usually agree.
Plant keying is still very important in order to determine species and subspecies when rare and endangered [sub]species are being considered. A qualified botanist should conduct surveys during the appropriate survey periods.
Y_ panda - What a great way to pass the time
Such an amazing app. Learning the trees around me from the roof top. cant wait to get a leaf sample to far and label. This is making learning fun. Being a student means having a question about something and learning about it to satisfy the thirst of learning . This is what I try to inspire and em ole in my students. This is why I opened a virtual school so students can have fun learning again, online. Things they are interested about, exposing your self to new knowledge and information. Let me show you how I think.
Every-time I come from the roof I start sneezing a lot. I know I have allergies from an allergy test, but couldn’t remember the name of the tree pollen. So I googled pollen index in my neighborhood. Then I realized apples weather app wasn’t proving me the information I needed. And I need to outsource. Downloaded a reputable app that gives me daily allergy notifications about the pollen count and learned the 3 types of pollen and how to reduce sneezing. Then I used this app to go a step further to figure out what trees surround me as they are the culprits of my allergy. Haven’t done the analysis but I will .
All and all, we like this app!
Cwoo1111111 - Updated: Love it, but I’d add one thing..
Update: I’m THRILLED to see the integration of the ability to add progress photos!! Thank you, developers!!! 😁
This app is exactly what I was looking for in being able to take a picture of my plants, and keep library that could help me remember watering schedules and also provide useful information when my plants look unhealthy. One thing I really wish I had the option for is adding progress photos of my plants without having to add an entire new entry to my garden. I hope to see an “album” feature with each garden entry. Even now I can’t see the full photo of my own plant without pulling the screen down, and once I let go, it goes back to the half photo at the top of the page. I’d even pay to have such a feature, lol. If I see this integrated in a future update, I’d instantly change to 5 stars. Other than that, great job in design and ease of use! I don’t leave reviews often, but I love this app enough to hope that this review might be seen and taken into consideration with future updates. 😁
Jenniv77 - Best plant app - highly recommend
This app works extremely well at not only identifying the plants you find (even in low light) but also gives you very detailed information on the plant. I’ve found that after a few months of regular use, this app has been correct 99% of the time. If you don’t have LTE while hiking, etc, you can take a photo and upload later for identification. The app will save all of the plants you upload and you can either leave them on your main list, add them to “your garden” or delete them.
If you’re a nature lover and find new plants often, I highly recommend paying for premium as well. So much extra information and even some poetry.
On a personal note, we can also thank this app for solving a skin problem mystery. My husband had unknowingly weed whacked some poison ivy on our new property (not far from woods and a river). The doctor misdiagnosed him. We downloaded this app and identified that we did in fact have poison ivy on a the property and he was able to get the correct treatment.
CraftyInAZ - My favorite app
This app is wonderful. I have the annual membership because I bought a new home a year ago and there were many things planted already that I had no idea what they were. I use this app all the time just to see what kind of weeds I have too, it helps me identify the nasty ones before they go to seed and spread. Some plants that are similar like peaches and nectarines may show up as the same plant but they’re in the same family so that doesn’t bother me and I guess I’ll know which one it is when they give me fruit! I will probably be a lifetime subscriber to this app as I find uses for it everywhere. Oh, even in stores and at plant nurseries I use this if something doesn’t seem right, just to confirm it looks like what the tag says. A great tool! If I had one suggestion it would be specifically for grapes, to be able to tell the different types apart, but this is a tough one you can’t find many resources on this anywhere, so I can’t take away points for that, it’s just perfect !
BellaBuckeye - Horrible instructions, great identifier
This is EXCELLENT for identifying plants, but their instructions are WRONG & INCONSISTENT! I have a brown thumb so I spent the extra money for premium and almost killed all my plants with their instructions!!!
Sunlight & water are practically the two most important instructions for plants and their sunlight is TOTALLY OFF & water is often wrong!!
When the plant first pops up listing the care in a graph form, every single one of my 15 plants says something like FULL SHADE and it’s not until you click deeply into the professionals care tab that is a written booklet form that you get the correct care like BRIGHT INDIRECT LIGHT. Every single one of my plants is off!! One says BRIGHT LIGHT then the pro page says PARTIAL SHADE. Not one single plant is correct and even watering care is often wrong!!! I was caring for my plants by the initial & secondary page coming up and almost killed all my plants I got from my mother's funeral…which have so much meaning and sentiment to me. I want to keep these in her memory because she was a beautiful Gardner. I would give 0 stars for their inaccuracy on care but it definitely deserves the 3 stars for identification.
DevRecruiter - It works - no, really, it does!
We just bought the house we’re in and moved in this past winter. It’s an older home, but we could easily tell that at least one of the previous owners spent huge time, and money, on the landscaping and gardens. Being an amateur gardener, I didn’t know what to expect come the Spring when everything starts to grow. I found PictureThis as I wanted some kind of plant guide app. I’ve been blown away by it’s ability to identify the plants, shrubs, and trees that are in this yard. I did notice early on that, on rare occasions, it struggled to accurately identify some trees and shrubs that didn’t have leaves yet and no clearly unique bark or other features. However, once everything started to bud and sprout, it has been 100% accurate. I have a close family member who is a master gardener and confirmed that it’s spot on. I’ve identified and cataloged over 80 different varieties of flowers, ground covers, shrubs, trees, etc. Its exciting to see something new come up and instantly know what it is.
WazerCraze(r) - Definitely 2 happy thumbs up!
I just downloaded this app almost 2 weeks ago and 3 of my friends have already downloaded it and sent me texts telling me how much they absolutely LOVE this app! It is incredibly helpful and fun for all shades and levels of green thumbs! It’s especially great when you’re browsing the nursery because with one picture you have every bit of info about the plant you are interested in 🪴as well as all the tips and tricks to taking care of your new leafy friend 🤗💚 The only thing that makes me extremely sad is that I cannot afford to upgrade to the pricey premium app (which is also the only reason I gave the app 4 stars instead of 5) which I would love so so much to have! Do you foresee the monthly subscription payment going down even a little bit anytime soon? Thank you so very much for creating an amazingly brilliant app, and allowing me to get outside and feel like a human being again, I don’t know what I would do without this app! Two thumbs up and tons and tons of congratulations on a much well deserved app!
MicrowavedSoda - Great App!
I love this app! It’s been very accurate with most types of plants that I’ve encountered so far and has lots of information about them! I also love the feature of being able to add and suggest plants that you cannot find cataloged. The insect identifier also works surprisingly well! There have been a couple times where the photo I took wasn’t very good or the insect was very small but both times it quickly and accurately identified them! I personally have found that it has difficulty identifying mushrooms. When you do try to search up a mushroom, it only will get as specific as a family or genus of mushrooms (at least in my experience). Though a lot mushrooms are very difficult to identify even for knowledgeable people, so I understand that and even just getting a possible family/genus with the app has helped me to more quickly identify mushrooms with other resources! I’d recommend this app for anyone with a curiosity about the world around them! Thank you!
VonRothbart - One of my top apps
I’m an avid gardener but often go beyond my sphere of knowledge in botany, especially with identifying plants and trees. PictureThis has become my go to app for plant and tree identification. Whenever I’m unsure if I’m about to pick a weed or my recently planted sprouts PictureThis is there the help. It is very accurate even when the picture is crowded with other plant life and gives the option to correct if you know better.
Another feature I love about PictureThis is the organization options. Recently I’ve expanded my gardens and I’m easily able to group everything together in the app. This is where the care information is great because I can see all my plants in a particular garden and figure out the best care schedule for that garden.
If you have a small garden and you already know everything in there then this app may be more than you need. But if you have anything beyond that or want to identify that cool-looking plant on your next hike then this is a must have.
GuitarD-42 - Picture This VS. “Key to Vascular Plants of N.America “
I was a Biology major in college ( Vert Zoo ) graduated with a BS degree in 1976. I took a couple of Botany courses to round out the the Bio Degree, and one was
“Local Flora”. The class consisted of lab work and a ton of field work. Quizzes and major tests were in the field and the professor would pick out a particular plant and ask you to identify it , by head knowledge of Common Name and Genus and species. If you did not recognize the plant , you could use the book Key to Vascular Plants of N. Am. And you had a standard allotment of time to accurately key out the unknown plant. The “ Picture This “ App would have been a very useful tool in identifying and learning all the required information to hopefully get an A in the Class. My Biology days are long gone, but I still have a very keen interest in identifying and knowing what is out in our local environment, in both Zoology and Botany. If everyone had this App, then there would be no excuse for anyone not recognizing Toxicodendron radicans “Poison Ivy”in the field.
Jajahdhsbh - Broken login but still charging me.
Update: Notice how the developer response doesn’t solve a single problem in my original review? And just directs me to the folks I said I’d already been talking to? I really want to like this app but their developers suuuuuuck.
Original Review: I thought this app was great until I tried family sharing. Everything about this experience has been bad. I used an apple-generated email to create an account. But I needed to log in on the other family-member’s phone for it to work. I used the apple-generated email to request a password reset so I could use the email on my partner’s phone for family-sharing but PictureThis has not registered their email servers to send to apple’s email-routing. So I unbound the auto-generated email so I could use my email. Whoops. My account is bound to the Apple-generated email that no longer exists. I’ve been talking to “support” for a month and they keep suggesting solutions that don’t apply to this app or to my situation. Now when I open the app it says my subscription expired. But, guess what? If I try to subscribe it fails because I already have a subscription. Deleting this and will go directly to Apple to refund my 1-year family plan.
Dreammidnite - Suggestion for Developers!!!
i love this app. it’s wonderful. works great, accurate, and a clean design. Although there is one thing that could make this app much better and more enjoyable. I was using this app for a school project to find certain species of leaves. I needed to quickly identify every different species of tree I walked by. I wanted to be quick. But after you scan you have to hit a tiny little button to get ready for another scan. This gets frustrating when you have leaves in your other hand and your trying to hit a small button across the whole screen with the same hand your holding your phone with. It would be great to see the back arrow button much bigger or have it in the lower corners so you don’t have to reach as far with one hand. other than that this app is fantastic and i highly recommend downloading this app for fun or for knowledge OR if you trying to do a school project like me.
Shaydylady77 - Great but not perfect. Some plants not in database
I bought some plants for my garden and went to add them to “my garden” in the app, but the app does not have a plant matching that of the label from the garden Centre. And I could not find an option to self-add a label myself... just make a comment. So the plant identifier called it a petunia based on photo identification, but the plant itself is a Calibrachoa hybrid. Similar, I know but it would be nice to have the option to be exact. When using a text search, there was a single type of calibrachoa in the app database but it didn’t seem to be a good match for the plant I had... for one thing, according to the app, the color of my flowers didn’t exist for that plant family. I’m no plant expert (which is why I am using this app), so things got confusing quickly. For the meantime, I am keeping it incorrectly labeled as Petunia based on photo identification but will note the exact details from the label that came with the plant supplied by the garden Centre. And I’m guessing that will be sufficient to keep it alive and thriving.
Nds1963 - “Update to: In-app purchases” translate “subscription required “
In fine print below the subscription advertisement that comes up EVERY time I open the app, there is an option to use the “limited” version for free. It is in fine print and a very faded font and there isn’t an X visible anywhere to exit out of the paywall, but it does work without paying. I still dislike the feeling of an attempt to trick me into a subscription on an app that is in the App Store as free with in-app purchases available.
I thought I would give this app a chance. Who forgave a couple of plants that they can’t identify? I saw “in app purchases “ listed in the App Store and assumed some basic plants for free and a charge for more complexity. As soon as I opened the app, it asked me to subscribe - with a 7day free trial that I would then, of course, have to remember to cancel. I thought I’d come to the description and see if that was clear and I had just missed it. It isn’t. What I did find were other reviews showing people had trouble canceling at the end of the free trial. No thank you.
ThatFluffyBotonist - The best identification algorithm on the market!
Thank you to the developers!
Gone are the days of carrying field guides and flipping through pages while hiking. One snap from this app and I have instant reliable results. If I feel a discrepancy in the result I can reach out to a botanist directly through the app for further investigation. I was weary to allow AI to think for me when building maps of the local plant life, however my concerns were put to rest when I discovered this app.
I have been using this app extensively and daily. As of now I have absolutely no complaints. The identification database and algorithm are unmatched when compared to other available platforms on the Apple App Store.
One feature I would LOVE to see in this app (and I think many customers of my likeness would feel the same).. PLEASE add a map and utilize metadata from photos for GPS coordinates so I can more easily build plant maps. I can use Google Photos to do something similar but that requires juggling apps, copy/ pasting multiple times and is quite the hassle. If there was a streamlined method I would happily pay a premium for access. Perhaps you could pull from Googles API and pass the charge to us? I’m sure there’s a way. Please do consider.
TLDR: the app is fantastic and does exactly as advertised better than anyone else on the market. I would like to see a map feature added ASAP.
Thanks again. Cheers!
GothamGargoyle - Really love the app- but PLEASE add an Invasive species indicator!
Really good and useful app. I Rated 4/5 because it REALLY needs a simple, clear indicator of invasive classification. The app does have invasive status notes on some plants, but it’s generally buried in the Q&A or the plant description, and many invasive plants have no indication at all. I have use both the app and Google to double check status of species we’re unfamiliar with as invasive status varies across regions. Would really appreciate an icon that indicates if the plant is listed as invasive anywhere. I wouldn’t mind researching the specifics on my own- but a simple indicator of invasive classification- no matter where- is very much needed. Especially for a paid subscription app. Everyone in my volunteer conservation group uses this app to manage invasives on community projects and our own property. We also use it to identify and cultivate Native, threatened and endangered species and we all love the app. Overall, it’s really great. But this one, very important area needs attention.
Wolverine 1984 - Kinda of misleading
I came upon this App by a short video add. on Instagram. The misleading part comes @ the very start of the add/video!! It shows A picture being recorded threw the App of what is known as a “Tree Cookie” AKA Circular cross section cut of a Log/Tree. Showing every growth ring in the tree from center out. App then tells #1 Age of the tree #2 Type of Tree/Wood thats scanned, & #3 all the things from its Latin name ect. It’s not a far stretch I feel to make an App that does #1 & #3 But I have not found a decent app on the store that does a identifier of Wood sections like there (video) claims. As for the other identifying features in the app like plants, pets etc. I can’t give any feedback on because I did not try after no luck in identifying any “Tree Cookies” I photograph. Still the user interface was very well done and for the most part I guess their advertising was well done because it got me to get the app even though it might be misleading that’s my only negative I guess lol
Kinda reminds me of a sports car that looks really good but doesn’t even start up! Lol
Einnalee - Do you ever see a flower, plant, or fruit and wonder “what is that?”
I walk the neighborhood for exercise and would often see beautiful or weird-looking plants, and say to my walking partners, “what the heck is that?” Now, I just pull out my mobile phone and snap a picture with this app. It’s great for identifying all sorts of trees, plants, fruit, and fungi. I am curious by nature and it is so much fun to be able to quickly and easily answer my “what is that?” questions. My daughter and I planted a garden and I’m starting to use the app to photograph and add the plants to my digital garden.
My only complaint is that for a few plants in my garden, the app identification is somewhat generic. For example, we’ve planted collards and kale and the app identifies both as cabbage, but neither collards nor kale are included in the list of varieties. I’m not sure what that’s about.
I use the free version of the app but I know there are still many more things I can do with it.
Capitol Riot MeeMaw - Save the animals!
I really like this app, but I think it would be greatly improved if a simple “toxic?: yes or no” would be added to the plant info. Sometimes it will tell you if it’s toxic in the “frequently asked questions”, but most of the time I scroll through, find nothing, and go to google. It is mildly annoying and takes up some extra time, so if the app design homies would consider changing that it would be wonderful!
Besides that, the app is pretty lit. I wasn’t going to pay for the subscription, but ended up doing it anyways because of how many cool extra features the premium subscription has. The 360 plant identifier has been nothing but accurate so far. The diagnosis feature seems to be not working so well, though. I have used it twice and both times it said my plant had root rot, which was not the case.
Overall, I would recommend it. The $30 subscription is a little pricey, but nice to be able to forget about that for the rest of the year.
Frogmtman - Amazing tool for any farmer or forester !
This app is totally amazing. When you find a plant and you don’t know what it is simple pull up the app point camera and shoot. Most likely in 5 seconds you have the answer right before you. It doesn’t stop there it gives alternate names the plant properties what kind of conditions the plant needs to flourish. If it’s a plant you enjoy and wish to keep healthy this app actually analyzes the plant and provides information you need to know to improve the plants health. I actually had the agriculture extension agent out to help me identify a plant I was unfamiliar with. I wanted to know if it was poison or anything bad you wouldn’t want in your hay. The agent couldn’t tell me anything about the plant so I would not use for hay. With this app open point shoot and there’s your answer right in front of you. I could have used this app hundreds of times during my lifetime. Oh well as they say “ Better Late Than Never”
Terrilcooper - No subscription required
I’ve been reading some of the reviews and wanted to correct some misconceptions. This app is free to use. I’ve been using it for several weeks and have not entered any financial info. I’ve taken pictures of my plants. The app has correctly identified them. The app has correctly diagnosed whether they were healthy or sick. It gave me advice on what to do for the sick plants. And I’ve set reminders. All for free. This app has a lot more free features that the others I tried. So it is the one I will be using. The only negative I’ve found so far is that I the reminders are not Apple reminders, they’re only within the app, so you have to remember to open the app to see them. For someone like me who can’t remember to water my plants, this is not user-friendly. I’m hoping if I pay for the premium subscription that I will get Apple reminders. Otherwise, this is a great app and absolutely free!
60657 - Picture this I love it
I just downloaded this app a month ago and I’m really impressed. I can take A walk down a woodland path and come up with names of any plants I’m curios about. I’ve been able to take pictures of flowers I’ve planted in outside pots and I now have a picture and name of what I’ve planted so next year I can duplicate it. I’ve never been able to remember the names of plants I’ve planted. I wish I had this 39 years ago I had this beautiful hanging basket and I don’t know the name of the plant so I can’t duplicate it.
The only thing I wish this app did that it doesn’t do, is that I would love to be able to group my plants by use. Plants in my planters, bushes, house plants, wild flowers from my walks, weeds etc. that would make it a lot easier to find the plant I’m looking for.
I can’t wait to go shopping next year for my garden plants. I’ll have such a good reference on what I planted on the previous year.
Neuroproff - Truly useful and amazing
Admittedly, I had my doubts. However, the accuracy with which the app recognizes plants of all types is rather astonishing. Not only that. It allows you to catalog your plants and discoveries in various folders, making it easy to come back later to do either more in-depth research or just simply follow the progress of your own plants along. You can even name a single plant and add notes to it. This really makes it possible to create a database of your own plants and follow them through the seasons. Really cool. Additionally, I received feedback about a small issue that I raised within 24 hours by email. And it wasn’t an automated reply, it was an actual person writing back to me. So, I am completely sold on this app and I think I will be able to use it extensively both at home and while traveling, hiking in the woods or just trying to figure out what’s growing there randomly.
Nursethalia - Great for identification, but not for care: App had me overwatering my plants.
I’ve been really impressed with this app. It’s been wonderful for identifying the plants and trees in my yard, and finding out whether or not they’re poisonous to my pets. However, I recently began keeping houseplants and need to remove a star from my review because the information I received on watering schedules was incorrect.
I had several houseplants that were listed on this app as needing to be watered every 2-3 days. Within a week, all of my plants began to turn yellow and wilt. I downloaded a few competing plant apps, all of which said the houseplants I had needed to be watered far less than PictureThis had instructed. Half of my plants needed to be watered every 6-10 days, and the other half every 10-13 days.
It definitely made me rethink how much I could trust this app, especially since I am a very inexperienced gardener and need accurate information to keep my plants healthy and thriving.
Kstnd327 - Amazing App 👏🏻👏🏻👌🏻
I wish I had tried this app sooner. Some of my plants 🌱 that are still in their first - 4 stages are now dying due to their roots becoming weak and the leaves and foliage of starter plants are wilted and past the point of no return! I live in the southern region of the US and I like that we can go an abundance of fruits and veggies in different variety’s. To much sunlight and heat with no shaded space for some species of plants is a bad thing. So far I am reading up on what I should do differently next time to get our food all the way to harvest day and on the kitchen table for nourishment! It seems this app pretty much has it all. So we shall see when I come back with an update next time! Until then everyone be safe, treat others like you want to be treated, laugh until you can’t stand it anymore and love with your arms wide open! 🐝🦺🥽 » ✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 🏻🏼🏽🏾🏿 »
TRexx$ - Awesome!
I’m only two hours into this app and already love it. Not very often that I find something so incredibly useful, informative and helpful all in one place! I love the quick ID from photos; I have several “volunteers” in my garden this year and now I know what to expect! I have some obscure heirloom plants growing and the app knows what everything is, I even learned some useful care tips. A great thing about this app is the diagnosis of issues detected in the pictures you provide, and how to fix it! One of my tomatoes showed “yellow leaf” and gave me precise instructions. You can add the plants you IID to “my garden” and there is a diary to store notes on each plant. All in all, this is a great app for novice gardeners and old-timers alike, and far superior to its competitors. I appreciate the 7 day free trial. A little pricey at $30/year but I’ve already decided it’s worth the money. Thanks developers! You scored on this one.
CknoxArcher - Learning about the trees in my new state TN
I can’t believe it’s that easy! Pop a picture into the dense and not only very interesting, but absolutely a helpful tool for me to be able to identify not only the trees and their needed care, but the invasive insects that can cause havoc on your property. I was able to identify the beetle that is working on destroying a mature 120+ foot tall Shagbark Hickory 12 feet from my home and save it from the insects that would’ve otherwise killed it and it would’ve or could’ve very easily toppled over onto my home and I have a small child so that was what sold me on this app! Plus I am an avid hunter and fisherman, so I’m frequently out in the woods and I can use this app to determine not just the tree species in my areas, but which ones to prune and how to care for them.
I have a semi horticulture background, so I’m naturally interested in plant care as well!
I LOVE this app! It’s AWESOME!!
Seek you find - I don’t understand these 4-5 star reviews
Yes this app from what I’ve seen on people’s phone last that paid for it works very well.. it gives a lot of info on what I wanted which was care and maintenance of the plants, as well as soil needs, sun and zone conditions BUT ..
When you install the app you can’t even test it out before paying. Literally nothing in the app will work with out paying .. $30 a year are you kidding me. These developers have gotten insane with this subscription model crap. I just won’t have any part of it any more .. who could own a phone and sit there and pay subscriptions for every app on your phone. I have no problem paying to buy the software outright cause then what does it matter if I barely use the app. But when you have 10-20 apps on the phone and they all want to start charging 10/ month to 30 a year. Do the math no body is going to do that .. we already pay a fortune just to buy these over priced phones and seriously overpriced phone plans !!
App subscriptions have to die. I suggest no one buys one and see if we can bring these developers back into reality
Bchampitto - App is beyond limited
If I could rate this app with less than one star I would. I started getting into houseplants about a year ago and I was looking for something to help me keep on top of all of the different types of plants and their needs. Since paying for the lifetime subscription, $50, I have lost more than four plants because this app tells me to overwater them. The identification aspect of the app isn’t accurate and I have had to do just as much online research on my plants than I did before I had this app. The app does not take into consideration the size of the plant or your own area, and I live in a very Ehret environment, and just gives you generic watering instructions. There isn’t even a function to skip watering you have to just ignore it if you know your plant doesn’t need water. It took all of the personal and emotional investment I had in my plants and made it technical and disconnected. I could not be more displeased with an app. I have written them feedback and will update this review once they get back to me; based on the other feedback I have read my hopes are not high for their customer service.
LGZ👀 - If u love the woods ! Or Hiker ! Don’t leave home wit out this APP!
Thanks ! U ROCK .. easy simple , fast , keeps u & pets safe ! A five-year-old can use this for the rest of the allies anybody can use this and benefit from it so I will recommend you highly to the rest of my friends and everyone I know thank you!! tells me in plain English exactly !! what it is before I touch it or bush threw it . It’s great for keeping my kids , family , pets, safe . We live in pawling New York. On 50 acres of woods and land bears and Deas and all of the above and this too if you hike or live in the country or wanna walk through the country make sure you have this tool in hand because you don’t wanna brush by or touch something that’s going to get you poison ivy or poison your dog if he’s playing with it I got to be your children because you know kids they put everything in their mouth and this app is the best!!!! ☝️☝️✌️✌️❤️❤️❤️🪴🪴👍🧠🧠👍
Beaslyrising - misidentifies plants despite premium account
For a non-free and pretty expensive app, it consistently misidentifies plants in CA. For instance, it has no idea what safari red leucandendron is and with clear pics, thinks it’s crimson bottlebrush or a form of asparagus. It also is terrible at knowing subspecies of plants (it can barely identify my lime tree and gets the subspecies wrong—sometimes even thinks it’s a plant from another genus!). There are even a few plants in my yard that are yet Unidentified because it wrongly identifies them every time. CA plants and plants common to this area aren’t picked up by this app well at all. I only know its identifications are wrong because of the accompanying pics of the example plants look NOTHING like my plants and a google search confirms this. Really disappointing and I won’t be renewing this app. The plant has to be VERY common and widespread for this app to be correct. Also, tried to use the diagnose feature but because of the disease on my plant, it wouldn’t even identify my photonias correctly! What a mess. Is okay at identifying SOME trees and worse at shrubs/vines/flowering plants. Waste of money, unfortunately.
Dazman65 - So far, so amazing!
I am using this app during the free trial period. I was skeptical that it would actually identify anything. I assumed it would pull up similar plants if anything at all. I found myself absolutely amazed as to how accurate this app really is! It not only identifies the name and species, but it also gives in depth information regarding care and/or elimination. Also, interesting factoids are provided and you may save identified plants in your own “personal garden” storage area. I am discovering so much more as I use this. I am definitely going to be a premium subscriber and would like to set up everyone in my household with a subscription as well. I wish a family plan option were available because we all love plants and spend so much time outdoors gardening and hiking. This is so educational! I highly recommend, so give this app a try — you won’t be disappointed!
Gianni-D - Use PictureThis to annoy your friends and family
During the pandemic, I walk 1.2 miles to and from my office. The streets remain largely empty, even in September 2020. While working my way to the office a couple of months ago, I became intrigued by the identity of the trees I passed. I bought a tree identification book, but that did not help at all. After I acquired PictureThis, I felt compelled to ID just about every tree I encountered on my way to work. This compulsion has spread to other areas of my life. While visiting my daughter and her family for a home picnic (maintaining proper social distance, of course), I document the ID of the plant life in the garden while the rest of the family engages in small talk. My wife no longer enjoys evening walks with me ... you can figure out her complaint. I guess I can honestly say PictureThis has changed my life ... but I’m not sure family and friends appreciate the change. 🙂 A great app!

SarahJohannah - Saving this notorious plant killer one plant at a time….
I wasn’t lucky to inherit the natural green thumb of my grandmother and mother….. I rely on plants to boost my mood daily and enrich my sanctuary…. But I have lost countless plants that came to me healthy and flourishing.
My abilities include drying, drowning and neglecting to the point of no return. I have countless black pots scattered around my home, with no green in sight just hoping that one day I’ll see new growth…. It takes me months to accept I successfully killed another plant before I recycle the soil and pot.
Three weeks on to having this app, I’ve rescued several plants who are already thriving by providing the basic of care that takes no time out of my intense schedule at all - just the correct amount of sunlight, watering times and home made anti fungal care. It couldn’t have been easier thanks to this app.
And although I’ll never absorb all of their names, I know I can rely on this app to identify and provide the right care advice for the 100’s of different plants around me.
This app is genius, reliable and worth far
more than the small investment I made. My favourite app I have ever had.
Meerkat333 - Best app of its kind
This app is so much better than the well known plant snap (which costs $6, can’t identify anything, has an ugly dated interface, and after deleting the app it cost $6 if for some peculiar reason I did want to get it back, and it won’t let you write a review or rate on the App Store.. such a waste of money)
Download this app instead for FREE. The interface is beautiful, you can connect with people on the map in your area and see what others are snapping and the database is pretty solid. I like that you can view multiple photos and unlike plant snap it’s not just a basic internet search, but rather a community contributed database with lots of information!
Room for improvement : in regards to plants not yet added to database, I wish they would reply (the feature lets you ‘suggest’ a plant) and find a way to add the plant straight away.. and there is some tidying up that could be done such as when a plant is added and you suggest the name for your own feed it still shows as ‘unknown’. I wish there was a place to add a wishlist!! No plant app seems to have this feature yet! You can ‘heart’ (like) the plants you like, but then there is no place where all the likes or rather ‘hearted’ plants show up in a group together?!
I hope to see these improvements and to see this gain better ratings, as it definitely deserves it over its terrible competitor!
Thewaterbee - Good informations but wrong plants, wrong matching
Good informations but never get the right plants, try 22 plants which I known all their name, corrected only 4 try 13 roses, non of them correctly. But if you get the right plants, you will get the useful details and easy to share on social. Photos looks nice, app is easy to use. I understood that this app have an option for change the results....but if you do not know the name of plant and you hope this app can help you the right name....what is a reason to change the results for? Unless you know the right name and they gave you the wrong name...and when I corrected the name, no results. This app identified my Iris to Indian wood oak! And recommend that iris plants are roots rod!
If your photos are common plants such as marigolds, thyme, lavender, mints, azalea..mostly you will get the right answer.
Please keeping update...this app will become an useful app. Also a great guideline for the gardener.
Littlelukeylukifer - Absolutely awesome!
I downloaded this app to help try and identify some weeds and vines that were growing in the yard with all intentions of deleting it before the end of the free trial, but honestly, this app rules! Not only did it give a almost constantly accurate identification for most of the plants on my yard, but also has tons of information on said plants and how to deal with them. Only unfortunate downside to this app is that some times it will miss identify plants or give different identification to the same plant if different photos are provided. There is, however, the option to ask a botanist to help identify or diagnose your plant. Overall I am very impressed with this app and will be keeping it around. Cheers!
Sarahac88 - Best free app, fast and accurate!
I absolutely love this app! I am always saying that I wish I knew what that plant was, or I wish I knew how to care for that plant but I just don’t know where to start looking.
With this app, I only have to take one picture and within 10 seconds it matches me to the right plant, showing clear photos and information. It really is just amazing how it knows out of the millions of plants out there, and the best part is it doesn’t cost you a cent to find out and it doesn’t take you hours searching through google to find the right one.
I really recommend giving this app a try and have fun sharing with your friends and others around the world.
Usednicknameattempt100987 - Totally Deceptive Practices
If you need to be so deceptive to sell your incredibly overpriced subscription ($30 per month? Seriously? Twice the price of a basic Photoshop subscription ?!😂😂😂 Who do you think you are?!🤨) your product is obviously not good enough to sell itself. User be warned: this app is a classic money grab. Regardless of the functionality of your product, your sales tactics are despicable. You deserve no stars. Unfortunately, I have to give at least one☹️
Response: For an app, $30 per year is still way too expensive. Comparative and significantly better developed apps cost half that to buy outright. You’ve over valued your product. Further to that, trying to sneak in the most expensive of your subscriptions is just deceptive. This is blatantly clear from the feedback. Aside from all that, you probably have a decent app, but it gets lost in the cash grab, which builds a chasm of distrust with your potential customer.
Tim.E-H - Not one correct identification
To test this app, I photographed four Australian natives from our garden. None were identified correctly. While it did a good job with general classification based on plant shape, everything beyond that was very wrong. For one plant, it suggested plants with completely different flowers where the flower size, grouping (photo had clumped flowers, suggestions all had single flowers) and colour (white submitted, coloured suggested) were all wrong.
It is impossible to adjust the focus within the app, so I used my photo app to ensure that each specific plant I was identifying was in focus. I also made efforts to ensure plant shape, leaves and flowers were all in frame (plus one where the image focused primarily on the flowers). So with clear, in focus, photographs the app was unable to correctly identify any of the plants submitted (all were falsely identified as European species).
Perhaps it will work with Asian, European or North American plants but it is no good with Australian natives.
Harmony Sage - Such a lovely place to lose hours on
This is the first app review I’ve written, but I feel I owe it to you guys for giving us such a lovely free app! It has given me lots of accurate results, and my ‘nature walk’ is not interrupted by ads and pop-ups. There’s lots of opportunities for different ID’s - you can always get a second or third option just by taking a different photo - maybe change the angle, close up on a flower or leaf etc. And if you still aren’t quite satisfied by that, you can always offer up your plant to the community for some other ideas. I spend a LOT of time here and always come away feeling calm and happy 🌱🤔🌿😌
Tecno Nerd - Lots of Room for Improvement
The plants recognition is not as precise as I like it to be! Thanks for google finding me the correct name for my plants and at least the system allows me to rename my plants. I can understand the photo taken for the the plant recognition system to work depending on light, angle, distance of the shot ect but it could be better.
I also understand lots of people have their ornamental plants or succulent mostly indoor or anywhere that suit the plants. I wish this app also provides guidance on deterrence from stopping animals eating my plants! As most of my plants are outside of the house, some succulent get fully decimated and consumed by Deers or Wallabies. Also understand this may only applicable to some cases to some households. Just a thought
C mardy - Top app
For ages I’ve been trying apps that supposedly id plants, I finally found one that did! I was amazed it knew what a utricularia was, its amazingly accurate. Well done whoever made this, absolutely love your work. Get this app, you won’t be disappointed. One suggestion though, if it’s possible consider a change of name for the app, I only found this because someone told me about it, I probably wouldn’t have otherwise, and going by the name I would have thought this was a picture framing app. It’s just a suggestion, this is a fantastic app and it would be a shame to keep it hidden from the world
Melisinka Star - Brilliant app for nature lovers!
I just got this app and am delighted! It’s so wonderful to be able to have plants identified and also their history and information about their cultural context. There are even little poems associated with some of them! I am often out walking and see flowers or trees I love, and wish I knew what they were- now I can find out and save the ones I like in my own garden on the app. Thank you for all the research and care that has gone into making this brilliant app.
Yeah I'm Mad Bro - Apps Great, Company is a parasite
Sure, download the app, you probably have a curious flower or tree that you’d just love to find out about.
Points where they’re due the user interface is great, the app is easy to use and identifies just about anything, even down to the the condition of the plants you’ve pictured. Unfortunately, the free weekly trial becomes a real pain in the bum when they sting you with an automatic annual subscription without a “are you enjoying the app, would you like the paid version?”
Sure, I’m not blameless, I could have set reminders, but these people thrive on people forgetting and then it being too late. They know that some percentage of y’all will forget and they grub up those tasty auto-subscribes like roaches in the night.
Screw em, send a photo to your grandma and ask her instead.
01Dalekboy - They priced me out
First I want to say I think the app is great. Is it perfect? No, of course not, how many apps are? But I really like the app and found it very helpful.
When I originally got the app, you had the option of essentially buying credits. Pay $X and you get so many identifications. This worked for me because I’m not someone who would usually use it enough to make a yearly subscription worth it. If I found I was using it enough, I’d have happily bought a subscription.
Since it’s gone to a yearly subscription model I’m going to be, regretfully, deleting the app. As I said, I think it’s great but the sub system doesn’t work for me and since they no longer offer the system where you bought credits, it’s been rendered useless to me.
Yuseifudo96223 - Excellent plant app!
I’ve been looking for a decent plant care app for a long time now that doesn’t have a massive pay wall. Sure the premium subscription ad pops up often but it’s easy to exit out of without closing the app. That being said though, I’m heavily considering the subscription because it’s a cheap yearly option with good benefits. The free option it’s still fantastic though and my plants are looking better than ever. Definitely recommend 😊
Brynnin - Great app, reminders could be better
This app is really great - I use it to remind me about watering and fertilising my plants. The reminder system however could be improved. You can only see one reminder at a time, so quite often I water my plants, then tap done, and immediately a fertilising reminder pops up for the same plant. It would be great if both reminders were shown at once.
In terms of fertilising also, it would be great if there was a recommendation for fertilising in dormant periods so the reminder could be adjusted in the colder months.
Graphix girl - Very Helpful
This app is so helpful! I am terrible with plants and in the past I have killed virtually every plant I’ve owned. This app identifies what the plant is, what it needs when it’s sick and how to care for it. I wish it could put the information into a spreadsheet so I could group plants with similar needs together. I also think it would be great if you could plot each plant in a map of your own garden - for those of us that can’t remember when each individual plant flowers, or needs fertiliser etc. Overall, very helpful
Jacquieckhope - Could be better
Whilst the app is correct maybe 60% of the time - it is often wrong and does not give you the opportunity for you to tell it it is wrong, or to ask for it to try again.
Also I think it would be useful for the app to take note of where you are. It often misidentifies Australian natives as exotic plants.
I feel sure it could improve by taking feedback on every plant it ‘identifies’ and collects info on what you think it might be if you believe the app to be wrong. There are so many plants in the world the app can never have enough training!
Vgms - Impressive
The free version appears to work well.
I am just wondering what the limitations of the free version are. It only appears to accept 3 or 4 plant photos per day. Is this correct or do I need to edit something in settings?
What is the extent of the diagnostic service for the free version?
Is there a limit to the number of photos I can save in “my garden?”
A list of the limitations of the free version would be most helpful in deciding whether to retain that or go for the pro version.
Narcowoman - Fabulous APP
I’ve tried most of them and this is definitely the best. I particularly love that it identifies if the plant needs tlc and a separate section allows me to get a specific issue ‘diagnosed’ along with solid advice. It offers a great history of the plant too which always manages to surprise me.
Love this app and was more than happy to pay the annual fee of $36 a year (something like that!) to upgrade as I’ve used it so often, even walking along laneways and at friends.
RydinTheWave - 🌿🌱The best plant identification app ever! 🌱🌿
Just snap a photo, wait for the app to identify and BOOM! Select the one that matches out of 3, and instantly there’s care instructions, facts and just about everything you need to know about the plant. I have all my indoor and outdoor plants identified plus I know how to properly care for them now! I’m super satisfied with it and I’ve even told a few of my greenthumb friends about it (believe it or not, I got really excited about this app aha)
I wish I could rate this higher! 🥰💖
Wilsoah1 - FRAUDULENT In App Subscription Cancellation
I have previously requested to end my trial account from within the PictureThis application on the 16th of January and have been charged a membership fee.
I submitted a support request to have the account charge reversed as I clearly did not authorise the payment, I requested my subscription to be canceled, and my account and data deleted and to contact me when completed. Here is the unacceptable response I received...
——— * START EMAIL RESPONSE * ———
If you were charged for PictureThis by Apple after purchasing a subscription on an iPhone or iPad and would like a refund, you could contact Apple directly.
Please note we don't sell PictureThis directly and therefore are unable to do refunds.
Ours is like a manufacturer - distributor kind of relationship. It's the same as you buying something from your local grocery store but asking for a refund from the manufacturer of the product.
Therefore, only Apple can process refunds for purchases made on iPhone or iPad.
——— * END * ———
I am furious this has occurred.
SkuDen - Could not do without this app
I’m getting on in years so this app helps me to remember the Botanical names of my 250 odd fruit trees, over 50 varieties plus 8 different berries as well as many vines, it’s the best aid to identify any plant, anywhere, including pesky weeds so one has a way of dealing with them.. Realistically, I find a few errors now and then, but these are corrected quickly, really couldn’t do without this app…
Hope it’s around for a long time..
Michelle Peta - Refunded me straight away
I signed up for a 1 week free trial and forgot to cancel at the end of the week. The app was great for identifying a tree, but I only needed it to identify 1 tree then no longer had a use for the app. I contacted customer service and Phoebe said she would refund me the money, she replied on the same morning. Thanks heaps. Such good service I want to sign back up!haha Or will recommend to friends who would actually use the app more frequently. Thanks !
Supercallawalla - Stuck in camera mode
I had downloaded the app today and after taking 50 odd photos to identify and save to my garden folder, I took another photo and the app got stuck in the camera setting and I couldn’t get out of the camera so had to delete the app and reinstall it. I was quite disappointed. I will continue to use the app in the hope this won’t happen again before whilst in the 7 day free trial period before making the decision to purchase the app.
Uncatchable_Lemur - Fantastic app
Really great app. I was a little out off by the full screen ads to subscribe which I generally find indicates an app that I will not subscribe to due to the hard sell however this app is definitely worth the subscription for the extra information you get.
One thing that’s bugging me is I cannot switch from Fahrenheit to Celsius in the app and I live in Australia so wish I could find a setting for that.
BostonTheTravellingOodle - Can’t identify what is wrong.
Downloaded this app because I was really struggling with care. I thought that it would share if it’s been over watered or underwatered so I could learn. While it did tell me the name of the plant. Every time I submitted 3 photos it either told me my plant was healthy or gave me a different prediction. So for me it couldn’t tell what was wrong.
I wouldn’t have bothered with a review but when you realise that you hadn’t cancelled the subscription like thought and you paid $180 to an app that can’t even identify if a plant needs or water or not they need to do better!
Yes it’s my fault for not cancelling, but they should have a better app for $15 week!
Ajnthring - Not all ID’s are correct
I think this app. Is great.
However about 2/10 times the pictures supplied in the ID given dont match up with the plant I am trying to ID and I know it is wrong.
It would be great to have a ‘this doesn’t seem right, have another search’ option where the app has another search using the same image, whilst ruling out the original ID so that it can’t come up again.
Nickname 07639 - Amazing but annoying
The actual identification this app offers is amazing, and tracking your plants and plant care and weed identification is very helpful. However every time you try and do something a pop up appears asking you to sign up for premium membership. The cancel button on this pop up is tiny and almost invisible in the corner as well, I’m sure many people assumed this was a paid app and didn’t see it. Please improve this pop up to be clearer and at most once a month
Jess Forsyth - Accurate
Loving this app. It’s very accurate and very easy to use. Would be great if there was some sort of discount if you also purchase/subscribe to the Picture Bird and Picture Insect apps. Would love to use all three but $40/year annual subscription each is a bit ridiculous. Maybe there could be a price for subscribing to all three?
Regardless, highly recommend this app.
Cojcolds - “Free” trial trap
I (like others, now that I’ve read the reviews) were automatically set up to be charged the full year’s subscription (AUD$30😱) after downloading the app as what looked like a free 7 day trial. This is a trap for young players😡! How does Apple even allow this?🤷🏻♂️ Surely you should be asked at the end of the 7 day period if you’d like to pay for the subscription. There’s even 6 subscription options from $2.99 all the way up, but I wasn’t even asked which one I’d like - of course it put me on the most expensive one. I had to look up online how to find the place to unsubscribe (under my Apple ID in Settings), which I did immediately! This was NOT a good user experience 😞
Raaaj 007 - Absolutely Amazing!
I love this app a lot! So far all of the plants that I have scanned are right, I know because my mum knows a lot about some plants in my garden. This app even tells you other suggestions if the first one is maybe wrong. It is SUPER easy to use because all you have to do is take a picture of the plant! I recommend this app to everyone who wants to know more about their plant.
Diamondpython - Love the app
I am a born again plant carer starting my new green family in my freshly built living room and the plants are becoming an addiction to fill out the area with green liveliness. With this amazing app and its accurate diagnostics, references and information on plants I’m sure I’ll be on track to restarting an old hobby my much loved partner got me into and impress her with how much I learn and develop with the help of this app. Great stuff!
How isvtgat - What a SCAM!
This is the worst app I have ever tried...apart from the fact that I didn’t want nor need this app, I ended up being charged $30 for something that doesn’t work.
I contacted the developers to say that I had been charged for a subscription but they still insist I be charged. I had a horticulturist check some of the plant photos in Australia and he confirmed that they were wrong!!
WARNING...this is an app that does not work...the way they charge you after a 7 day trial is a SCAM...
Please read all the other negative reviews before you even consider trialling this app...what a joke! Don’t trust my review, read all the other reviews by people that have been SCAMMED by this app as well.
Heartstarter69 - Pretty good. Not super accurate but it’s learning
I paid for a couple months gold+premium on this app, it definitely taught me a lot of things. After my subscription expired and I could no longer afford the prices, it is asking me to pay $12 for a succulent and cacti pack , I now realise why it always identifies the plants in the same couple of categories..... but hey, it’s better than pretty much all the other apps out there I’ve tried. Thanks PictureThis
Jeff111go - great app😁
this app is GREAT! i would totally recommend it to anyone of all ages, i use it on plants and flowers in my garden, on bush walks and basically everywhere. it tells you what the plants called, gives picture examples, tells you where it’s from and even if it’s edible or not! it’s completely free too (it will come up with a subscription thing but just press the X in the top corner)
Todski2 - Saviour
This has just potentially saved the lives of my dogs!! Or at least hefty vet bills!! It identified a plant I didn’t know as”Highly Toxic, could cause death if eaten!!” My great danes and little dogs often eat plants and grasses but luckily theses weeds were in an area they can’t go to unless with us, but when I found out what the plants were I ripped them out to prevent them being eaten!!!! So app has already paid for itself!!!
Lizzy.0001234 - Disappointed
After reading many reviews on this app, I was disappointed with the overall performance.
There doesn’t seem to be consistency with the basic information presented ie- plant height can be displayed clearly and easy to locate sometimes, where other times you have to read paragraphs of information to find this information.
There are also tabs for ‘more’ which leads to a subscription that I’m not interested in, rather than displaying the additional information.
Unfortunately I’ll be deleting this app and trying a different one.
Karelynnb - Helpful & informative
I only downloaded this app a few hours ago after discovering it by ‘accident’! As a novice flower/plant photographer & enthusiast, it has already proved useful & worthwhile. I posted a photo of a miniature type orchid and requested assistance with its identification. I received a reply within the hour! I now look forward to learning about flowers both familiar & rare, & to sharing my amateur photographic skills. Well done PictureThis!!!
Plantilicious - Better than expected
I fully expected the free version would be identification only, but no. I was delighted with the extra information included - Plant needs, best locations, possible plant problems, similar species, your garden section, whether edible or poisonous etc.
Very happy with this app and use it on almost all my walks. Highly recommend
VivP987 - It’s good!
I’ve recently started photographing a flower each day and posting to Instagram. I wasn’t feeling confident about posting the flowers names so I searched for a plant app and found this one. I’ve just tested it with a dozen flowers, some of which I already know the names of. It is quick, user-friendly and seems spot on in terms of the results. Thank you!
Dee to the - 7 day free trial?
So let me get this right, you offer a “7 day free ‘trial’” but the consumer has to cancel 7 days before (ie on the very day they download the app) if they don’t like it, ‘not’ to be charged for a full year? That appears to be within the small print of your terms. Is that correct?
If that is correct, that is an illegal use of the term “trial” because it’s ‘false and misleading’ to consumers. There is no 7 days of trialing the app. If you don’t like it and don’t cancel on the very day you’ve loaded it, you’re charged it appears according to your terms. Right? Have I missed something?
Aunty Lissy - Love Love Love
This is one of the best apps! I love my plants so like to know everything about it so I just take a photo in the app and bang, everything I need to know in a couple of seconds, then it goes into My Garden folder of the app. Can also look up plants and help my family/friends with ID or problems. Definitely worth paying for Premium.
MattH1993 - A good tool for identifying common plant varieties
After doing a test run of this app at the botanical gardens in my home town - I’ve found this to be a good tool for identifying common plant varieties and derivatives. It however is hit or miss on some of the more obscure native species (Australia) - but it may come down to the app not having as large of a user base in Australia as it does in other countries. As such, it’s a good starting point but needs some work before I’d consider this to be a comprehensive plant guide.
@tombstone01 - Fantastic
I have spent years trying to educate myself about plants and plant diseases and all I have to show is unsuccessful gardening and a bad taste in my mouth in regards to planting and gardening. This app is incredibly knowledgeable in plant identification and disease diagnosis. I am beginning to refund myself loving planting and garden maintenance. This takes the hassle out of my lack of knowledge and allows me more time to carry on in the garden .
Alex76rugby - A must
Hey, this game is so genius, everyone should have it. If you see a plant in someone else’s garden, and you want to see what species it is, you can just take a clear and specific picture and it will identify it! Then you can see all the info on how to care it It also has info on things for your garden, like how to identify weeds and how to get rid of each. You can also check out other wacky plants people posted!
Get it now!
Lichniph - Deceptive sales tactics
So disappointed with the way in which you get caught paying the full subscription! They send a beautiful email with great superlatives in the first paragraph thanking you for giving them a try but then they have at least 6 paragraphs of waffle about their app before they get to the all important information of how to cancel! It is implied in the first paragraph that they have received your notification and I believe it is reasonable to believe that that is acceptable notification! Deceptive and sneaky! I too would have not even given 1 star!
Jonathan2927 - Identifies Correctly
This app is really good because it is free, has almost no ads(maybe even none) and quite easy to use. The only two things I don’t really like about it is that it sometimes doesn’t identify correctly and it need internet.
I also use 3 other apps from the same developer : picture bird, picture mushroom and picture insect
ChrisH00 - Very reliable even in Australia
Tried several other apps that claimed they could identify plants and was disappointed in them all with no better than 50/50.
But PictureThis gets about 80 to 90%even correctly identifying many uniquely Australian plants.
As well it has very useful plant health identification and management features.
Rippedoffbyaplantapp2020 - Bad Apple ...do not download this app...
I cancelled this app 2 days into my 7 day free trail, and received a message saying I would be contacted within 24 hr to confirm my cancellation. Email recieved, confirming cancellation, but still charged $30 au after the 7 day period.
Apple should not allow there app developers to get away with having cancellation conditional in 24hr via email. I am very unlikely to ever download anymore apps from the App Store, all trust gone in a company who allows their loyal patrons to be ripped off in scrupulously.
I used this app twice, not that impressed, demand my money back.
Channel [V] - Difficult to unsubscribe - BEWARE THIS APP!!
I wanted to trial the app and now can’t seem to unsubscribe. This is super dodgy especially when you consider how expensive it is. When I go to unsubscribe, you have to enter an email address (why?? Nobody else seems to need that) and then a message says “we’ll get back to you within 24 hours”. What???! Just cancel my subscription now! I’m shocked Apple have let this one into the App Store when unsubscribing is deliberately made difficult or not working, or whatever is going on there. Apple, remove this app now please

R@hn - Quick and super useful
Loads plants fast and results have always been accurate for me.
Cha1r234 - I love this app!!!!
Very accurate description of flowers! Good job guys! This is awesome!!!
Mnatola - Super identification
Keele Ireland - Awesome!
This app identified all my house plants with so much info on them, looking forward to using this outdoor.
Hrfromthecr - Amazing
Wow! What an awesome app, I can’t believe everything it’s able to do! So much more than just identify plants! Wish I found this earlier!
Lou14Cat - Awesome
I love this app. So helpful
Welwyfm33 - Top App
Loved it from start.
Use it lot’s around house yard and farm and wood lot’s too.
Elmanshy - Don’t go premium! Use the free IDs only...
Unlike most bad reviews here, I was actually able to switch off the premium for as long as I wanted, used the app frequently for identification, and I was really quite satisfied with that. Then I thought maybe it’s worth the annual subscription for $25 so I can get some proper advice, as I noticed some of my plants weren’t doing so well. After paying, turns out you only get *ONE* plant diagnosis for your $25/year. After that, it’s another $35 to ask any more questions. This is not explained anywhere before subscribing. I know maybe it’s somewhere in the terms and conditions or in a footnote somewhere, but these things should be properly advertised. That is just cheap and I wouldn’t recommend this app to anyone again.
Bounano - Scam
You subscribe to the 1 week free trial and it automatically subscribes you to the 1 year subscription after the 7 day trial. If your 7 day trial hasn’t expired go into your emails and look at your app purchase email. There will be a link to cancel it. Do it before the end of the 7 day trial otherwise you’ll be charged. Thought it was funny it asked for my finger ID to download the “free” version. Total crap. Saw the other review where the person got charged. Glad I got to cancel before getting charged.
Gf hf hg kg ljg luc9hdx - Scam
I did not agree to purchase this app. Very sneaky and unethical. I meant to download a free app and then it billed me almost $30. Be very careful
Thelivingcanvas - Not accurate
Took 3 pictures knowing exactly what the plants were already to check accuracy. 2 out of 3 where identified wrong. Not good.
Quanglikeboomerang - Scam! Will auto charge you a full year
Downloaded this to identify a plant.
Said it was a 7 day free trail. It did not identify the plant I wanted, so 30 minutes into having the app, I decided to delete it and went to my phone settings to cancel the trail subscription.
The next day(day 2) I was hit with a full year membership subscription without my consent. Even without the app installed on my phone.
Do not get this app, unless you are ok with being auto-subscribed and paying for a full year without your consent!
Unbelievable. Worst of all, it doesn’t work too well as an App.
Gagatibo - How to be fooled
Nice but not free....$25
Benjo19 - Way too much money
So I signed up for a free trial and it cost me 25 bucks to confirm what I thought was an apple tree actually was an apple tree. Next time I will wait till it fruits. Don’t scam people. It’s not right. Your yields will suffer from bad energy. You’ll see.
Idon'tlikenosebleeds - Nosebleed prices
The app worked fine for the introduction, about 6 photos then you have to upgrade to a paid version.
Nosebleed prices, run away, buy a book instead.
Bre789956 - Terrible
Terrible they don’t tell you the monthly cost before you download it.
Sissythatwalkheney - Warning it will auto renew even if canceled
I used the app twice. Canceled it through the app before the trial period ended. They still charged me for the annual subscription. I had to ask Apple to look into it to get my money back. Don’t waste your time and money. Buyer beware.
Noluckwithnames - To cancel before before charged
Where on earth is the cancel button on this app. I feel like I was sucked into trial run for 3 days before being charged 24.99. Now that I want to cancel the option to easily do so has disappeared.
DQuizz - Terrible.
BECAREFUL BEFORE INSTALLING!!!!
I deleted it after 1 day and was still charged $25 (which is a lot for an app w such basic functions).
Bee wall - Stole my money
Watch out it’s a scam, thought it would be fun to try. However they dinged me for $25 on the hidden subscription thing. Missing care section for many of my plants and now they’ve taken $25 from me for nothing. I’m quite upset about this. User beware!!!
Luc_ars_ - FRAUD
They will charge you immediately ever if you take the free trial. DON’T download this! + it really doesn’t work well
Say no to picture this - Scam Alert
Used once. Deleted app. Charged $39.99 weeks later. In Canada this is known as negative billing which is illegal.
Simonboa - Be forewarned!!!
The app is listed as ‘Get’ (no cost), with ‘in app purchases’, but as you sign in, the wording is unclear and the sign in automatically signs you up for a $29/year premium subscription, before you even download the app. When I emailed the company support they took no responsibility for the misleading sign in process and made me go through a whole refund process with Apple. Thankfully, I finally spoke to a human at Apple who acknowledged the issue...and hopefully a refund will be on it’s way.
Sickofchoisinganame - Trial auto subscribes you for a year
Watch out as this app will auto subscribe after a few days for a 1 year subscription. Such a scam to not choose a 1 month by default. Shame, shame and one more shame. Try PlantNet or some other one that actually gives you what you think.
TeeMcDub - Picture This
I cancelled during my “free” subscription and was still charged $27!
Shadowfax394 - Took my money before I knew what happened
The sign up flow is confusing and I tried to turn off free trial, not wanting to activate premium at all. Instead I was charged for premium. I want my money back.
Ekimw50 - How do I cancel???
I thought I had the 7 day free trial , it charged my account 24,99$ !!!!
How do I cancel ?
Tewha - Devious
PictureThis tries to trick you into subscribing. The welcome screen, for instance: the button to buy is huge and labelled Continue. The button to cancel is drawn as disabled, but still works. My advice is to steer clear. PlantNet is a lot less devious.
Happytder - Deleted. Wants agreement to pay up front
Can’t even try app without signing up for $40 a year subscription. Yeah I’ll pay $5.99 for an ad free version, $40 a year? Nah fam you’re smoking crack.
HelloLittleBirdie - This is not free & should be stated upfront.
I downloaded & then only choice was to use for 7 days or subscribe.
Suxtouse - Subscription necessary
Wanted to find the answer to one plant, but a subscription and CC are required.
Quicker to type descriptions into google.
Zack199544 - Scam
This app is a scam.
Me and the other one - Be careful
This app seems to work well but it is set up in a way to have you inadvertently subscribe to the premium plan.
Schudelowsky - Try to cancel but couldn’t
This program was not what I was looking for and deleted the App
The Bill still came
Elizabyan - If I could give 0 stars I would
This company pretends that you are registering for a one week subscription, and then without confirmation or notification charges you for a whole year at 39.99 without consent. The language they use to get you to sign up is false and in no way would I ever have clicked on a subscription for 39.99.
Anon24242121 - SCAM & FALSE ADVERTISEMENT
I downloaded the app, went ahead with it since they offered 7 free day trial before being charged. I was charged RIGHT AWAY. I wasn’t even given the chance to see if I like the app, let alone change the subscription payment method, I canceled the subscription as soon as I downloaded to avoid accidentally getting charged before deciding if I wanted to keep the app, and nope that was taken from me and was charged right away despite being advertised free 7 days. This is ridiculous and false advertisement and because of that I don’t care if the app is good or not, I had my money basically stolen from me. Hopefully Apple will refund my money. I would have given 5 stars but I don’t appreciate people who lie and steal. Simple as that.
193725792 - Took payment without notice
I installed the free app with a one week free trial yesterday, today they took $14.00 from me and I never accepted anything I even deleted the app because it wasn’t what I wanted!!! And no email confirming the subscription that I never agreed too and how do I delete the account when it doesn’t exist?
Kromee - Free Trial? Questionable at best.
First of all, I did not even get to try this app because the developers insist that you commit to yearly subscription before you are able to use the app. Yes, I am well aware that you can cancel before the alleged trial is up but I’ve been down that road before and I’ve been burned by it. So the question begged to be asked - if this app is so great, why not give the end user an unconditional trial period? I suspect that most people who agreed to this nonsense will miss the deadline to cancel the subscription which by the way must be done at least one day before the trial period ends and will wind up with a nice $39.00 charge on their credit card. Sorry if I sound sceptical but the whole thing seems to be a pretty good money grab.
Kathleen1983 - Scammed me into a subscription
I never signed up for this subscription and was charged $44.49. I downloaded a free app.
Molanator - Not Free
This is advertised as a free app. It’s not free. As soon as you download it the app says you need a subscription to use it.
I really wish app developers would just be honest. If they said up front a subscription is required I may have subscribed but since they are dishonest and claim the app is free I will not use it
Paultauzzi - Free trial is a fraud
App works great but when I signed up for the free week I was charged for a year long subscription.
Krista2345 - Charged me money without my authorization
This app has somehow charged me for a premium gold membership without my knowledge or authorization. I would like my purchase refunded and would like you to make it clearer for future users if there are charges.
Billsliu7 - Worst application
This is a fraud, it automatically deduct $39.99 from my Apple Pay, this application is a theft
Mechonix - It is kind of cheating practice
Not like the way it leads you pay for subscription and auto renew. Kind of using fine print approach. Simply delete it.
Eedaze - Opportunistic subscription design
I signed up for a free trial with this app because I couldn’t see an option for anything other than a one year subscription which I wasn’t sure I wanted/needed. Of course they auto subscribed me when I failed to remember cancel in time. I reached out hours later to see if I could adjust to a monthly option - which I was only able to view once inside the app. I had no response. This just seems like very disappointing and opportunistic service and has really tainted my feeling about an otherwise useful app. I feel like I was essentially tricked into a premium subscription I didn’t want. Generally confusing to navigate their subscription and account settings. Too bad their customer service can’t match the quality of their product.
Lolatengo - Could not cancel prior to the end of the 7-day trial
Dishonest business practices, reporting to Apple
ESaran - Very unethical!!!
It is like a scam, they charged $45 fir an app which says its free!!! Stay away! Do not download!
Arrrgggghhhhh!!!!!! - Don’t subscribe
Only a 7 day free trial, after which they charge you $39.99 for yearly subscription. I deleted it right away. They better not change me. Not an ethical way to conduct business.
J18S - Subscription????
Used this last summer a few times, great free app. Used a few weeks ago, great free app. Tried to use today and all of a sudden it’s a subscription??? Free to $39.99 just like that? Thanks, but no thanks, I’ll just search google.
Hayaeyad - Absolutely not!
If I could give zero starts I would!! They trick you by signing up for the week trial “to see if it’s worth it” and then bill you $40 the next day for a year subscription!!! I haven’t even gotten a chance to see if I want it or not! Usually when there’s a free trial you don’t get billed till after. SCAM!
