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!

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

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”

#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.

“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.

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

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.

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!! For example: 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.

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.

Keeps getting better. I started using this app about 6 months ago and it did ok with identifying my plants. I recently started using it again because I found it was more accurately identifying plants (tested at nurseries and such). The love the app design putting the camera ID button in an easy to find place so I can quickly ID those useless “hi, I’m a plant” labels in the big box stores. I love the photo and note journaling capabilities so I can chronicalize my plants journey through life. The water and fertilizing tracking and notifications are great since you have the option to either use their seasonal calculations based on the plant species, or set it up manually. I’ve used some of the genus-specific soil recipes that it offers and they have worked well for my plants. The light meter is somewhat helpful and they added the ability to save your light setting when you are capturing the light. It helps to place a blank white strip of paper (about 20# or 24# paper) over the camera to help diffuse the light. Unfortunately I don’t trust the educational videos because I have seen their videos give “tips” that contradict both the information in the text as well as general internet advice. Wishlist: would love a function to set tracking and reminders for pest treatments. Would also love if you added more Hoya and orchid varieties in the picture ID catalog.

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.

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.

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.

I would never use it again ever. It truly is a shame. This app was kind of cool, but my experience is a nightmare: downloaded the free app to helping Neighbor in September. I didn’t have my cards hooked up or anything like that and I chose. I made no choice on whether I wanted a month year. Whatever after the free trial was up the free trial was I don’t know like a week or maybe 30 days I don’t know but it’s the end of November the day before Thanksgiving. I was hooking up my card to download storage and within two minutes. These people illegally took $30 for a year subscription without any consent or follow up, after the free trial had been up for more than a month probably too. I’m on disability and these people illegally took money out of my account the day before Thanksgiving. Now I am unable to afford to pay for the rest of what I need for Thanksgiving day dinner for my family. I’ve sent my request and what happened to them I have threatened legal out of my account, but that doesn’t change the fact that tomorrow I have to get up and make do without certain items or if I run out of anything because this people that run this or greedy. I’ll update as soon as I hear anything back from them.

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.

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 !

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. Enthusiastically recommended with no conflict of interest.

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.

Perhaps better than the rest?!. I’ve had the best experience with Picture This over several other plant identification apps. It’s been accurate 80-95% of the time with exceptions generally of trees and grasses that look similar to others; for example it thinks that acacia trees are mesquite trees when not in bloom. I often don’t even get an ID on some of the other apps like I-nature or I-seek even though I know a lot of my friends rave over the app. I’m just super content with this one. I’ve spent the last 3-4years using this app daily/weekly to ID plants and occasionally bugs and birds and it gives good responses and facts like regions where it’s native/invasive so I’m learning beyond the name. I’ve been working to remove nonnative invasive species that are detrimental to the Sonoran Desert so when I’m uncertain, it’s helpful to cross-reference and make sure I’m not removing beneficial species. I love it. I’m also working on a coloring book with regional plants and species so this app has been a huge part of my research process as I learn. Thanks Picture This!

Subscription. I have really enjoyed this app and used it quite a bit last year, so when it came time to renew my subscription I renewed without hesitation. I went a few months without using it and had limited storage on my iPhone, so I upgraded yesterday. I see it in my Apple ID subscriptions, and when I look for this app in the App Store it shows I am subscribed. My subscription doesn’t expire until March 2023. I had to re-install the app to my new phone, and despite my subscription still being active I am prompted to purchase a new subscription when I open the app. I have looked for a way to contact Glority Global Group Ltd. and can’t seem to find anything concrete. I am happy to change my rating when this issue gets resolved, and prompt resolution will yield a higher rating. Update: It took several days, but I did receive response with guidance on how to restore my membership. It was not until then that I noticed the greyed out RESTORE option in the top left corner of the that was pushing to sell me on an annual subscription. The app is useful. The RESTORE option needs to be more visible, otherwise users might feel as though you are tricking them into taking more of their money. Not cool.

New version, less info. Edit: had to dock another star off after the version upgrade where there’s even less info unless you pay the $30. I totally get that everyone needs to get paid for their work and time but isn’t that why you have ads? Have literally not found a completely free app for plants with all info included which kinda blows. Especially these days where everything has doubled if not tripled in price. Except pay of course. Oh and now it deletes your snap history as well unless you pay to keep it. Pretty disappointed. Everything is always about money now. Obsessed with this app! It is super accurate at identifying plant types and helps you to understand how to care for them with fun facts about plant name origins and uses along with zone, light, pest, etc. info. I have the app 4 out of 5 stars because a lot of the info is limited, especially succulent, or repetitive including the auto diagnosis. Not sure if it’s any less repetitive if you pay the $30/year upgraded price (which I thought was a little steep for a hobby app) but that’s what Google is for right?

So Helpful and Accurate!. This app is absolutely amazing! It was able to quickly and correctly identify every plant in my garden, including one I had spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to identify on my own. I almost want the premium version because the features look so, so nice. Actually, I probably would buy it except that I have very low income and I probably wouldn’t get a whole ton of use out of it anyway. 😂 Anyway, this is absolutely a five star app! The design is great and comprehensive, and it holds a wealth of useful information you would have to surf the web for hours to find otherwise. Plus, I just love the light meter, diagnose, My Garden, and seasonal tips features. So helpful. If I had any suggestions at all, it would be to include options in the surveys (such as the one in the watering frequency calculator) for non-potted plants, and to allow you to edit the diagnosis as you can the plant names. However, these things did not detract from my experience at all, and this was still absolutely mind blowing! The accuracy, while not always perfect, is truly top notch. I applaud the developers, design team, and everyone who worked on this. You are all amazing. ❤️ All you plant lovers out there, totally support these guys by getting the premium version if (unlike me) you can afford it. Five stars!

App has a lot of great features but customer service isn’t great. Update: this app drains your battery in 30 min. I really want to use this app because I have invested quite a bit of time adding all my plants but the customer service is not up to par. Features disappear after an upgrade and the only info on the upgrade is “minor fixes to improve user experience”. This is the details for every upgrade. When you contact customer service they always tell you to reboot even if you are asking a question on a feature. Features that would make this app worth $30 Ability to copy the details of an existing plant instead of adding it new Add my own reminders When changing the name of the plant don’t erase existing data - give the ‘x’ in the corner. Have a section with upcoming reminders by date so it is easy to see Search under reminders for a plant to see when it is due to be watered When choosing snooze for a reminder it should move out of items that need to be done that day. It should move to the date chosen. Ability to water or fertilize on a different date than the current reminder but have it show up as done Bring back the change head photo Being back light meter tool Thank you

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.

Very useful app, but has a lot to be improved. I love this app, it is one of my most used apps. I use it daily on hikes to help me learn plants around me or to confirm my identifications of plants. However, you must not rely on this app, it should only be used as a tool. It gets a lot of things incorrect. As for the drawbacks, it does get a lot of things wrong. The app is unable to differentiate between a lot of species of plants that may look similar, I’ve noticed this with my cacti. It has misidentified about 1/3 of my cacti, and sometimes will come up with different identifications based on the photo. This is something that can definitely be improved. The biggest drawback to this app, is the diagnosis tool. This is something on the Pro version. It’s not worth paying for. I have used it many times so far and only a handful of times has it gotten a diagnosis correct. It tends to say sick plants are healthy or say there is a pest issue when there is very clearly not. Every other time, it tells me that a plant is healthy when it is showing clear signs of stress. It is especially horrible at identifying what is wrong with cacti. It works better with plants that have leaves or trees.

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.

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.

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!

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

Not impressed. Idk what’s worse the miss identification of common house plants or the barrage of “ENJOY PREMIUM” which thx for the reminder but every 5 minutes really? Google search engine is more accurate and has more photos for common plants. In all honesty my hope on this app would have this classifying lucky bamboo as a real bamboo. It’s just a step under some other apps I haven’t had much time to look into it as I’m still confused on what plants I own now thx for that, and the frustration of being barraged by a premium add fee. If I want it then I’ll get it add it to the loading screen and settings and it be better. If you wanted the app to be “premium” then sell it that way instead of making an app hard to use. When there are free options that do it better. I initially tried this app to see if I can find something that will let me list all my stuff substrate, care routine, ect. In one app something that allows me to add all my plants aquatic, terrestrial, hydroponic, aquaponic ect. I haven’t had much time to really dive in the ui(user interface) and ue(user experience) is just lacking I had to write a review.

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.

Tremendous help in only a couple of weeks!. Due to various life events, our garden needs serious replanning and planting. I value using native plants very highly. This app not only has helped me identify those that I already have, but also those I might wish to incorporate into my plans. Now I know what I need to remove, what to add and where to put the ones I want. It also lets me know how to care for these plants as well. I’ve identified over 30 plants, possibly over 50, in only about 2 weeks. I also can find out what condition my plants are in and how to make them healthier. Further, I can tell which plants may be planted near each other and which need to be tightly controlled. As for adding new plants, the information provided tells me the best method for propagating them and the best times to accomplish this. Another big bonus has to do with our USDA Zone. We are in a unique location and our zone is one grade colder than the area surrounding us. Also, I’ve noticed that global warming has affected our area so that plants I would never have considered adding to my garden could be potential new additions in my planning. I found this out through a feature of the app which displays the plants other people nearby own. This is reassuring, because nobody wants to spend time, money and effort on a hunch. There are many other features to the app I could write about, but it would take too much time and make the review less appealing to read. I suggest you give it a try!

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!

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.

Perfect for plant lovers, but photos/records disappear. I love this app! It helps keep my plants organized, I no longer have to memorize their names or look them up all the time, and the notes are perfect for tracking progress of your plant! One huge downside I recently discovered though, after I cleaned out some older pictures on my phone. When you delete a picture from your phone, it also deletes it from the app. That means it will also delete the first time you added the plant and move the “added plant” date to the most recent photo you DO have on your phone. This is a big problem for me, I have over 150 plants (mostly succulents) and simply don’t have space of my phone for all the progress pictures of all my plants, so I was hoping these saved in the app but nope! Now it’s hard for me to figure out when I got different plants, their actual progress etc when these pictures/logs keep disappearing. One way around this would be to add a text log when you add them to keep the date, but that’s again too much work for so many plants.

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.

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. Sincerely, JST

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.

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!

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.

Great app for gardeners. This app is a must have if you love plants. It gives all the info you need for your plants along with care reminders. You can take a picture of your flowers/plants and it will add “Your Garden” where you can add notes and care notifications. Also when you take pictures this app can tell you if the plant looks healthy or not. It can give you suggestion what might be wrong and how to correct the issue. There is so much more you can do than identifying plants …. It will identify trees, weeds, butterflies and other bugs. This developer continues to update app and address requests for additions to the app. I tried the other competitor, although that’s been almost 5 years ago so the app could be different, but back then it couldn’t compare to Picture This. I have a annual subscription to this app because it is so reasonable and extremely useful. If you are not sure about this app. I say just buy it … I can’t imagine you wouldn’t find it very helpful.

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!

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.

Been using since 2020. Been using this app exclusively since its launch. I’ve tried other apps here and there just to see how they compare and this one is far superior. Still won’t identify fungus, mushrooms, mold, etc but I understand why as well. It’s very handy to have and I literally use this daily. It has given me a greater love and appreciation for plants. Thank you. Great app and it has definitely saved me from Virginia Creeper vs Poison Ivy. Gets a little quirky when there are other plants nearby. The only reason I am giving it 4 stars is it won’t identify fungi. I wish it would let me know what was safe and wasn’t. I had my dog get a hold of a mushroom and I wanted to know if it was safe or not. It would be much quicker to look it up here than Google. Also I wish this app would say it is this but if not it might be... sometimes I know it’s not a certain plant but it keeps saying it is. Easy to use and nice to have when you are hiking or gardening.

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. 😁

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.

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.

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.

Amazing and accurate. I have downloaded the trial 7 day trial and experimented with tree and plant identification and all other features. I am amazed at the accuracy of all features as I know the answers already as a seasoned grower I find the accuracy to be spot on. The app may be pricey but the in formation and features make this the best plant app on the App Store. I use the iPhone 14 pro max and the better the camera the better and more accurate the plant and tree identifier and if their is a disease or sickness a snap of the plant 3 times is all it takes so the price is well worth the info. The work and time the developer (s) spent putting this together took a lot of work. So I recommend paying the yearly fee. These guys worked hard to provide all the info and research plus the photo plant identifier is a plus. So if your serious about gardening, a farmer, a plant enthusiast even pest and bird identifier has been spot on. So I recommend above any other app and I have tried all on apples App Store. To those thsose that put all this together excellent work guys. And thank you for every feature you have put in this package app. Kevin L Hall

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.

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.

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.

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)

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

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.

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 🌱🤔🌿😌

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.

Great with exotics and helpful with native plants. This app is great for working out the general types of plant you are trying to identify. In Australia it is very accurate with weeds and exotic plants but not always accurate with native species. For example, it will work out a Melaleuca, but not necessarily get the exact species correct. I wouldn’t rely on it but find it really helpful especially when I’m in an unfamiliar area. Really helpful for working out what doesn’t belong in your garden.

So helpful. We purchased a property that had a wide range of plants and fruit trees. We did not know what most of them were, and what care was needed or whether they were toxic to animals. I’ve had a number of different plant identification apps, but this one is by far the best we’ve used, I have put the app on both mine and my husbands phones so we can identify all the plants around the place. The diagnostic tool is brilliant and has saved me killing a few of my new expensive fruit trees!!! I just took a picture out the window of a vehicle doing 100km to identify a field crop - and it worked!!!

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.

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.

Must Have App for your Planties. I love this app so much - I used it a lot without premium also, but I actually find this subscription to be totally worth it. I like the identification feature as I often take photos of plants I like in other’s gardens (so I can buy the same plant), and it has been really useful to get quick and helpful info on plants I’m growing that aren’t going so well. Really useful for finding optimal conditions and diagnosing issues for your planties. It’s like having an expert gardener in your pocket.

Perfect Plant App for anyone with a light green thumb!. This app has been a Godsend, best value for money. To help with soil health I bury veg peels and scraps regularly, what doesn’t go in compost goes back into the ground; as a result I get unknown (to me) veggie plants sprouting, so I use the app identify, add to my garden list and also provide advice on plant health. There is natural & chemical treatment info for plants needing extra care as well. Great App that I will keep yr in and yr out.

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.

GREAT!!!. I love this app I often come across all sorts of plants/trees/flowers that I would love to know the name of thanks to this I now can, I have even taken pictures of the Tv or a magazine to find out the plant name and as long as its a clear picture it always identifies it, plants in my own yard that have started browning or lacking a little you identify and it gives you the plant health what the problem could be and how to fix it, I also just want to add I’m a premium subscriber so I pay the yearly fee that could also be why I get all the bells and whistles I’m not sure as I only used it for a little unsubscribed so take that as you will but I overall can’t fault it!!

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Professional gardener here. SO SLOW TO OPEN (10-15sec) To pay a premium price for an app that has next to no investment back into its performance speaks loads about this business owner. 1 in 5 identified plants are wrongly identified. Plant care information is overly generic and Information offered on the plant: -always “unhealthy” plant -always “harmful” to human/animal consumption (remove the cya warnings for outside the USA-as we know not to eat dishwasher tablets). I can’t share the full info/data on a plant with my customer. This would be a great opportunity to advertise the power of the app. TRY BEFORE YOU BUY: it’s a trick business model that has left a bad taste in the mouth of many of my customers. 2x customers of mine have felt really deceived by this in particular. The app auto-debits your account without your explicit consent. If you can’t pay monthly, it’s because the business knows you won’t re-subscribe. The above is my individual and independent opinion as a fully paid consumer of the app over a 6 month period. I will be looking elsewhere for a similar product when the subscription renews.

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

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!

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!

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!

🌿🌱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! 🥰💖

THE BEST PLANT APP!. Arguably the best plant app on the App Store and I have downloaded them all!! So I can confidently say don’t bother with any other app because this by far exceeds all the others !!! :) Buuuuuut… with the exception and the only reason i couldn’t give 5 stars, is the fact your premium subscription can only be paid in a yearly amount (instead of having an option of paying it in equal monthly smaller amounts). Also the fact that you have made some of the features that were previously available on the free membership now only accessible on the premium version which I am hugely disappointed by :( I love the app and use it most days every week! I bought the yearly membership when I first downloaded and I wish I could renew it but financially as a broke student unfortunately don’t have the money to pay for another full year subscription atm. I have recommended this app to my friends and family, who have downloaded it and use it now too! Very happy and love the app as well!

Great App for native plants, wild flowers & city gardens. My husband & I love to walk, whether it be wandering in national parks in WA, Qld or NSW, checking out botanical gardens in city’s or rural areas, or just when admiring people’s gardens. I’ve used this app regularly now for 2 years, have found it very accurate and it’s extremely handy to have when out & about. Are traveling overseas next year and we hope it’s as good there too.

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.

App has improved a lot. The identification is more accurate than it used to be, and the additional features like the interactive plant care diary and health are fun additions. It is still unreliable for Australian native plants but I guess with more user data it will improve over time. I wouldn’t 100% rely on the identity yet, but it is pretty good, and the mistakes seem to be only made on very similar looking plants. I think this app will only continue to be great and grow. 5 stars because despite small mistakes it is the best app of its kind.

Easy to use, accurate identification and helpful info. Love this app - I am using it increasingly more and more. It’s so easy to use and the identifications so far have been amazingly accurate - grasses, pond weeds, trees, bushes, flowers and weeds! I’ve identified some bad weeds and caught them early thanks to this app before they could spread. And identified a couple of native Australian plants that we want to keep now we know more about what they are. Bravo to the team who built it and keep it updated. Highly recommended app, super useful.

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 😊

Fantastic little app.. I was dubious when I first got this app, but after having used it I was pleasantly surprised. At first, I walked around my property clicking plants/weeds that I was very familiar with and found it have a 99% accuracy rate. It doesn’t always get the exact species but it does gives you all the possibilities and it’s been pretty spot on re genus+species. I have more than enough confidence in it to help me identify plants that I do not know, unlike many other identifier apps I’ve used previously.

Best EVER Garden and Associated Application-Novice to Expert!!. This app is simply the most versatile and accurate handy go to reference tool and resource for managing and maintaining the perfect garden and environment! Amazingly useful for beginners to experts and with visual assistance from video content to chat features with subject matter experts!! Insects, birds and trees!! Weeds to pests and diseases and watering frequencies it has it ALL!! Trial unfortunately ends today but will DEFINITELY re-subscribe when actively gardening as current circumstance prevents moving freely outdoors to enjoy! Fantastic productive app for everyone to enjoy and learn about their own garden to wider ecosystems. Thank you for such a resourceful and informative app. Have shared with many friends, family and colleagues to help them grow and thrive with their gardens. 💯 😇

“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 😞

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. Thank you!!

Amazing app that really builds your knowledge. This app has been instrumental in broadening our family’s knowledge of botany. During the lockdowns we spent a lot of tome walking in our local area and learning a huge amount about the plants around us. Now we use it when travelling to learn more about different species. As you can take photos and then scan then when you have the internet. Worth the investment

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.

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 !

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.

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.

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.

FRAUDULENT In App Subscription Cancellation. BEWARE !!! 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.

Review of the app. I have found this app absolutely useful in so many different ways. I like it so much I’ve even suggested to my friends to use it. I have one question regarding watering. When I have my reminders on the different herbs that I have on our balcony at our apartment, how do we alter the watering cycle when we’ve had nearly 40 mils of rain over the past four days?

It’s Google for plants!. Even being a keen and regular gardener, hadn’t intended to subscribe to this app, yet once I was aware of its capabilities, I quickly subscribed. And sure, while not every single plant I’ve snapped is correct, it has been pretty close and most helpful in many ways-from pest identification to best soil, growing location etc for different plant species. I am a spontaneous plant buyer, as well as Doggy Mum to a big boy (who loves burying bones in my garden then moments later “unburying” them😬🤨), this app has been incredibly handy in identifying which plants are or can be poisonous to him allowing me to plant where he can’t gain access. Super impressed and I recommend it to any other plant lovers I come across. Keep up the great work! I know I’ll be continuing with my subscription when the time comes.

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.

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

Great app, have been impressed BUT... I have been keeping up with my watering and fertilising of plants since having the app, however may I suggest having some sort of weather detection in the app somehow. It had me back off on water when Autumn started for us even though it was still in the 30’s C , also so that we can monitor the rain, so we can add how many mm’s we had in rain, so the app doesn’t keep asking the plants to be watered or that I have over watered. Just I suggestion.

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..

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!

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

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.

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.

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.

Awesome!. This app identified all my house plants with so much info on them, looking forward to using this outdoor.

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!!!

Terrible. Terrible they don’t tell you the monthly cost before you download it.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Worst application. This is a fraud, it automatically deduct $39.99 from my Apple Pay, this application is a theft

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

Not Free. Not a free app. Can’t open unless sign up.

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.

Scam. This app is a scam.

Quick and super useful. Loads plants fast and results have always been accurate for me.

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.

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.

Scam Alert. Used once. Deleted app. Charged $39.99 weeks later. In Canada this is known as negative billing which is illegal.

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.

Don’t install, 7 day trial is a hoax. I am very disappointed in this app. I installed it with the understanding that there was a 7 day trial. On the 3rd day. The App would not open unless I subscribed. Also I deleted the App and installed the free version but this company has remembered that I tried the premium version and the free version opens by insisting that I subscribe. Given this underhanded behavior I will not be paying nor using this App

Rip off. Rip off - dont get it

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.

Subscription necessary. Wanted to find the answer to one plant, but a subscription and CC are required. Quicker to type descriptions into google.

How do I cancel???. I thought I had the 7 day free trial , it charged my account 24,99$ !!!! How do I cancel ?

Picture This. I cancelled during my “free” subscription and was still charged $27!

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?

How to be fooled. Nice but not free....$25

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).

FRAUD. They will charge you immediately ever if you take the free trial. DON’T download this! + it really doesn’t work well

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.

Super identification. Super satisfaite!

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.

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.

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!

This is not free & should be stated upfront.. I downloaded & then only choice was to use for 7 days or subscribe.

Try to cancel but couldn’t. This program was not what I was looking for and deleted the App The Bill still came

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.

I love this app!!!!. Very accurate description of flowers! Good job guys! This is awesome!!!

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.

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.

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.

Scammed me into a subscription. I never signed up for this subscription and was charged $44.49. I downloaded a free app.

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.

Not accurate. Took 3 pictures knowing exactly what the plants were already to check accuracy. 2 out of 3 where identified wrong. Not good.

Awesome. I love this app. So helpful

Not a free app. False advertising. 7 days free then $39.99

Could not cancel prior to the end of the 7-day trial. Dishonest business practices, reporting to Apple

Very unethical!!!. It is like a scam, they charged $45 fir an app which says its free!!! Stay away! Do not download!

Good for identifying, not so much for plant care. Seems to do a pretty decent job of identifying plants, although I did take 10 pictures of one of my houseplants and got 4 different answers for what kind of plant it was… I wish the plant care was better with the premium version. The app knows the watering frequency and fertilizing frequency for each plant you save, yet if you want reminders for when to water or fertilize you need to manually enter the information! Other plant care apps have this built in using only the free version..which is pretty disappointing. The AI diagnosis doesn’t offer specific tips for the problems identified, but rather a basket of tips for all possible cause of certain plant problems - which isn’t very helpful. I don’t think the technology is really there yet to provide this kind of information, but the App definitely oversells the promise of the plant problem diagnosis… I missed the deadline to cancel my free trial by a day and am now stuck with a one year paid subscription to PictureThis premium that so far is not very useful.

Semi accurate and beware of “free trial”. I used this app for some succulents and cacti and it was mostly good. It could not differentiate between different echeveria types, which was disappointing. It also has blurry pictures for some of its plants which makes it hard to tell if I’ve got the right ID. It did well with a cactus and another succulent, though. Many people have been upset about the free trial thing. It is very misleading unless you read prior reviews. When you first open the app it will ask if you want to sign up for premium or use it for free. One would think that using it for free just means using it for free, but that actually starts a free trial which apparently is a pain to get out of. If you really want to use the free version you have to click the X in the top right of the screen. You will not have to enter any information and you will have 6 free IDs. I used those up and don’t need more, so I will be deleting the app. I’ll figure out my echeverias on my own.

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!!!! ☝️☝️✌️✌️❤️❤️❤️🪴🪴👍🧠🧠👍

Loving this app!!. I absolutely love this app! I am a very curious person and love plants so knowing what’s the name of the plant and details about it makes this app extremely helpful to me. But what I am not so trilled about is having to pay to get little details. I would at least like to know what the key facts are, how to take care of it and if the plant is healthy without having to pay. Since I don’t take care of many plants I don’t have anything to say about other things but like I said before I don’t want to have to pay so much. When I downloaded this app I just wanted to know those little details but now that I can’t look at them without paying it makes me disappointed. I really enjoy how accurate this app is able to identify plants. I looked at many other apps and none were able to find the correct plant which makes this app very special. Even tho I don’t enjoy paying I will still keep the app.

Ugh doesn’t work! Please read!. Ok so it is not a good app. I tried it and it identified my poppy flower as a TOMATO PLANT!!!! I mean sure they both are red but It is a flower!!!!! Not tomato! I mean it is not a big deal but when I try to do something like look at the history or something and try to take another pic, a like advertisement pops up or something like on the app but like buy this and buy that the store! And it KEEPS POPPING UP!!! 😫it makes me mad! Also I had this before like 2 years ago and I forgot why I deleted it.... well this is why! I did put 2 stars but when I started I just did 1 I mean I guess I could put like 3 but it did nothing! It is nothing but lies! Like I only remember one thing from when I had it in the past.... it identified a sunflower as poison ivy! It was 10ft tallllllll!!!!! 😫 that is my opinion. If others had good experience I am glad! 😊 and hopefully it is just for me cause this seems like a good app it is just messy for me. Hope the creators have a good day and I hope you (whoever reads this) has i Great day! May The Lord Bless you! 😊🙏🏻💙 byes! 😊😊😊😊😊 (: hope this works for you!

Potential, needs moderators. As a plant enthusiast, this app has helped me identify a number of mystery plants own or have seen. It’s fun to scroll through and help others identify their unknown plants too. However, I’ve come across a number of identifications that are suggested incorrectly (wildly incorrect!) and even some “accepted” identifications that are incorrect (you can add your identified plant to the gallery - however there’s nothing stopping you from adding your misidentified plant to the compilation of existing images). there are also a number duplicate identification options, since you can add your own if you don’t find your plant but know what it is (misspelling or an added space won’t bring up the existing entry, so some people add their own). I think this app has tons of potential and appears to be one of the more accurate and user friendly apps for this niche. I’d love to see community moderators (think stack exchange) and some work preventing dups and inaccurate information.

Add Virtual Room Feature for Indoor Lighting/Plants. Improving the app's functionality for indoor plant care, particularly in regard to indoor lighting, would be incredibly beneficial. Currently, the app doesn't adequately address the use of grow lights for indoor plants. It would be fantastic if users could input information about their indoor lighting setup, including the type of grow lights used and their positioning in relation to the plants. One suggestion is to introduce a feature where users can create a virtual representation of their indoor space, complete with customizable rooms and the ability to add and position plants and lighting sources. This feature could allow users to specify the distance between plants and grow lights, as well as take measurements of the lighting intensity to input into the app. Implementing this feature could be relatively simple, with a user-friendly interface that allows users to click, drag, and shape virtual rooms and objects. Additionally, including a database of common indoor plants and grow lights for users to choose from would enhance the functionality of the app for indoor plant care. Overall, enhancing the app's capabilities for indoor plant care would make it a more valuable tool for users like myself who primarily use it for indoor plant care and identification.

Genuinely grateful for this app. Thank you to whomever conceptualized, designed, and produced this app. I love plants but often feel overwhelmed when trying to care for them because I don’t know what they need or what different physical manifestations mean. I desperately want to be a good plant owner, and this app is the reason that for the first time in the ~5 years I’ve been trying to raise healthy plants, I am able to. All the information you could ever need (and more) is in the app, from watering FAQs to sunlight, etc. Taking a picture and having the app identify the plant and/or its ailments has been mind blowing to me. You truly do not need any information outside this app, it’s so concise and easy to comprehend; far easier to use than trying to google every plant question you have. I cannot recommend this app more highly, it is and will continue to be a game-changer. ☻𖥎𓆸☀︎

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.

I love this app & where it’s going!. Favorite feature is the core identification feature. Next I love the poetry and the notes feature. We just bought some land in central Texas and the diversity is extraordinary. We are very interested in caring for the natural flora and fauna and your app really lets us investigate what we’ve got growing naturally. I’m holding off on using the diagnostic pro feature until I’m ready to introduce some fruit trees and start cultivating. Only question/wish I would make is…when my husband is out at the ranch and I’m obligated to the city I would like him to be able to investigate plants and add notes to our gallery -collaborate!!!! .I found this app, so it’s on my phone, my husband and I have cloud sharing enabled but the app isn’t showing up. If there’s a way to collab now please let me know, if there’s a beta in the works I’m happy to be part of interview or UAT or anything CX in between.

LOVE APP MUST HAVE!!!. Absolutely love it! Makes going on walks and hikes and adventures so much more knowledgeable and fun learning and teaching about the zillions of flora & fauna on Mother Gaia! The one upgrade I would HIGHLY recommend is that you either: A) Provide real information about each plant/herb/tree/flower in the descriptions vs basic and sometimes misinforming new age textbook controlled narrative info. Info all related to “weeds” and “invasive” and how to get rid of etc etc, as a opposed to taking the term “weed” out of the vocabulary instead explaining that Dandelion for example (the most heavily targeted medicinal flowering herb by Monsanto & Glyphosate) is just that, a beautiful and extremely helpful flowering herb used to cleanse our liver/kidneys systems from harmful toxins like glyphosate. Also the FUN FACT how Mother Nature is so helpful to us in that it will grow the very things in which we/life needs to survive and thrive in direct relation the environmental toxins and/or elements specific to every area! B) At least provide some links and references to make this information available if you have conflicting interests business wise so it’s accessible. I really also hope that this app is no way linked to a malevolent corporation giving them access to so much of what life is still surviving for us and Gaia. Unity Peace Love & Light, -YourKratom/KratomTherapy :) Living the Love Vibrations!

Very helpful, but needs a little work.. I enjoy growing plants and searching for wild edibles. This app is good for identifying the family of plants, but not the varieties. I took three pictures the same plant and was given a different name each time, and none of them was what I knew the plant to be. It’s not that big of a deal when dealing with types of beans or gourds, but with other plants it could mean the difference between enjoying a meal and spending the night in the bathroom or hospital. For example, I have five varieties of edible true yams, and the app identified all of them as the same poisonous type (dioscorea bulbifera). I would recommend this app to anyone just curious about weeds and plants, and to people that may want to improve what’s unhealthy in their flowerbeds, but anyone serious about identifying specific plant cultivars would have to do a lot more research on their own. I would still definitely recommend this to others.

To the developers...... Keep a history of the photos I take like a scrap book. That’s what I want for this app to do for me also... I take pictures and I like knowing where I take them that way I can go back and find them again with the info about the plant under my picture I have taken, maybe with some other example pictures from app sources. Then all the plant info so I don’t have to look them up again and have the app re-identity the plant I’ve already looked up once. I also want a map of only my plants, not just the ones that other people and I have loaded onto your public map. Maybe I just haven’t found some of these features that I have described yet, I’m not saying some of them don’t exist within the app, but I would like to see it do more personalized things too, other than just five different frame styles. THIS APP DOES EXACTLY WHAT I EXPECTED FROM IT AND WAS SURPRISED AT HOW WELL IT WORKED IN THE AREA OF IDENTIFYING PLANTS.

Also helpful in identifying what you think a weed. Besides being the best of the plant apps ever and then some, I have found it to be indispensable for identifying weeds. I’ve been looking for 5 years off and on for what is called oxeye daisy - I originally purchased at a farmers market. Up to 31” tall and slender. It does reseed so I do have a few more of them in the area but just not very many and I can’t find (in casual searching). I took a photo of some very healthy green large clumps of leaves in various spots nearby in the garden and thought it was a huge weed but something told me to Picture This and lo and behold it’s the oxyeye daisy. Hopefully I can see pretty soon if this the one! I’m so excited😊 Also, I’m trying to remember to use my app for the premium membership that I have. I was just checking it out and it could be very helpful if I apply it more often so a heads up.

Don’t underestimate this app!. So I’ll admit that I haven’t used this as much as I should be. On occasion I’ve identified my plants and as a few new ones showed up I’d use it then too. And also on occasion I would check watering guides and whatnot not even looking at the rest of the info. However I literally just noticed the sunlight checker and the absolute plethora of detail you can find in this app! It’s enthralling to actually take the time and read about a plant’s history and see scientific facts. I highly recommend getting the paid version… It’s a reasonable price and only yearly that I know of since it’s the route I personally took. If I could give this 10 stars I would, hands down. And I personally thank the developers for making such a beautifully organized and useful app that’s a fair price for us plant enthusiasts. You guys rock!

Makes it Easy. I’ve tried others, but this app is worthy of the premium price. I have a quarter acre of ‘weed’ plants, which I’m slowly but surely turning into a quarter acre of perennials and food sources for bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. Being able to identify toxic or invasive species so I can pull them prior to them going to seed is essential, as I don’t use chemicals. I’ve been able to identify just about everything growing on my property…such an abundance of small plants, which I let thrive without pulling (though many consider these weeds, as does the app, I don’t believe that any plant is a ‘weed’. They are plants growing where a person would prefer they not). I’ve learned so much…if a species is native or introduced, toxicity, growing requirements, etc., and what I might do to correct any disease or pest issues. The app may not be perfect, but for my level of knowledge, or need to know, it is.

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!

Subscription necessary. There should be a way for apps to state monthly fee when downloading the app. if its a one time fee, the amount is visible. Why cant it have a special like M or Y in front of an amount for monthly or yearly when i download it? Save us some time because i understand that for an app to have people constantly updating its information (which i hope yall do) to include plants that may not be in your records or names that may not be in your records, then YES, a monthly fee makes sense. For an app thats just already built, its just limiting access to knowledge and resources via elitism and greed. I would pay ONE TIME for an encyclopedia of plants that can be searched via photos but not MONTHLY. This issue is just incredibly irritating because these tech conglomerates have the ability to make it easier to see prices but they choose not to, and limiting access to knowledge and resources for knowledge is just messed up in general when people will still pay for extra features if you give them the choice of customization. Do better.

Great app that has increased my gardening skills!. I LOVE this app. Make no mistake, it is the best one I have seen. However there are some things that I would like to see implemented or improved upon in the coming updates. First is the most important to me -The Symbolism for each plant. What it represents, the meaning, what properties are attributed to it specifically. Those correspondences between a plant and a specific symbolism is extremely important to me and many other people out there. Not just the meanings for flowers or herbs but all the plants. *You might need to hire a metaphysical practitioner to help with some of that. They seem to have the best info regarding those specifics. I’m interested bc my grandmother was a florist and the meaning is trees, shrubs, herbs and flowers are deeply rooted in my Celtic and Norse ancestors. They used plants as part of their pagan practices but also for healing. The herbal knowledge that has been lost in history is frustrating. The second thing was adding more plants from more places. For example I tried to look up grapefruit today. None of the many varieties were lists and, in fact, there was no grapefruit of ANY kind. The plant in the southwest USA are sparse and cacti and succulents need to be fleshed out as well. Those are really the only things I can think of that could be improved. I love the anecdotes and poems and interesting facts. They make me happy.

THIS APP IS A MUST HAVE TO HUMAN WHO VENTURES OUTSIDE. I 110% agree with every single thing libbby213 said- I’d have said the same thing verbatim. The only thing is that I am so profoundly grateful for this app that I DID purchase the membership. $30 was well worth the information this SUPER SIMPLE app provided me. It may be a little steep, but I spent countless hours trying to figure out what the trees were in the jungle of a house I bought. I downloaded this app-went straight outside and snapped a picture. Boom. Honeysuckle Amur incredibly invasive. Awesome. Oh crap. Plus I have poison ivy growing alongside Virginia creeper all over my 1 acre woodland property. I whip this app out regularly when I’m out with the dog. It’s helped me identify bare bushes that have toxic bark…. I have a German shepherd. Bark branches to fetch and chew…. I removed all plants that posed a threat to her. Thankfully she doesn’t chew hostas. Anyways THIS APP IS A MUST HAVE TO HUMAN WHO VENTURES OUTSIDE.

Wow!. When you have an app that charges this kinda $$$ & has DAILY 😳 negative feedback - well, buyer beware... I never, ever, ever write reviews, but I cant keep silent any longer - something else has become endemic besides COVID: app disappointment🤬 I am fed up with programmers who design so-so algorithms & then try to make a quick hefty buck off hardworking people. This app looks to have the potential to be a phenomenal assistive app, buuuuuuut...... programmers you gotta STOP BLAMING YOUR AI for all buyer disappointment!!! We are disappointed because your app lacks the value you have placed on it. We are disappointed because we feel betrayed by you, who said they would perform a service that they are incapable of performing. Yo- If your AI continues to have " a significant learning curve," then PRICE ACCORDINGLY & PERFECT YOUR ALGORITHM!! Programmers you are double benefiting from each new app user - benefiting from their analytics & benefiting from their app payment With each new app user, AI improves (or it should if you have continued quality improvement🤔) and so does your bank account 💰 Programmer. Please Programmer, do what's right & do your best, always. Just remember - Karma's a big Bizzzztch😖

No joke - the best app I’ve ever paid for. I love this app and use it everyday, multiple times a day. I’ve gotten my money’s worth in no time and I’m so happy I did pay for the year membership. So good at identifying plants and then it provides you with so much more useful information about them than you thought was possible. And then besides plants, it’s ability to identify insects, birds, and TREE RINGS is so cool and makes me want to keep using it. I recommend this app to anyone who enjoys being outside. My only suggestion is to let me input that I have a cat so that every time I identify a plant, it will immediately tell me if it’s poisonous to cats right at the top. I know for some plants it will say if it’s poisonous to cats, but I’d like to know right after identifying whether or not it’s poisonous after I’ve inputted that I have a cat. This app has already made my yard less poisonous to my cat and for that I am grateful.

Just what I was searching for. This app is exactly what I hoped for. For several years I bought perennials, planted them, enjoyed them, then the following spring accidentally uprooted them thinking the small shoots were weeds. I tried several plant identification apps and none were able to identify seedlings. This has helped me differentiate perennial seedlings from weeds as well as identify several unknown flowers in my garden. While it is not perfect (I have had at least one plant unable to be identified and one mis-identification) overall I’d say it has been 95% accurate and far outweighs the competition. I signed up for the one-week free trial thinking I would identify all the plants I needed and then cancel. However it has worked so well that I decided to sign up for the year. If you are looking to identify plants in your garden or differentiate seedlings from weeds I highly recommend it.

Good interface but accuracy not great and too hard to cancel before being charged. This app seemed great to start with but based on my experience so far it is running at about 30% accuracy. Some ID’s are just obviously completely wrong. For others I’ve taken 4 pics of the same plant and been given 3 different results, for others I’ve googled to confirm the id based on the initial result and have worked out that the correct answer is a similar but different plant (e.g. a yellow flower was identified as a yellow trout lily - the leaves were wrong, and that plant was not consistent with my location - but that was enough info to lead me to the correct id of yellow avalanche/glacier lily in the same family). There seems to be no way to either report the incorrect identification or amend the record to the correct plant, which is annoying, and also makes me worried that the app is accumulating a library of misidentified images. Finally, I tried to cancel the subscription several days before the end of the free trial (because I was underwhelmed by the results), but was charged anyway.

Phenomenal. I cannot tell you how much I love this app. Saved my life during my Field botany course (I used it to check my identifications). It’s saved a couple of my houseplants too. I take a picture of them and it tells me “Oh that’s brown spot disease. You need to treat that.” I thought I needed to water more. (Side note: overwatering is the most common cause of houseplant death.) I’ve created a couple of collections of plant photos: plants on campus, plants at my parents house, plants I want. It gives tons of information with each plant so I can learn if it’s native or good for pollinators or easy to grow. If I could add one feature, I would like it to tell me how certain it is of its identification. Are we 100% certain this is a passionflower? (Look them up; they’re pretty distinctive.) 80% certain that is tall fescue, not perennial rye? Overall I love this app. It has fed my love for botany like nothing else.

Very useful, even when occasionally wrong. I find this so useful that I've happily paid for the yearly subscription. I have a habit of picking leaves and stems off the floor in the gardening area of stores and then trying to propagate them. This results in a LOT of mystery plants (that's the fun of it!) and I lean heavily on PictureThis for IDs. The app's ID'ing isn't 100% accurate, I'd say more like 85% of the time it's correct. That's not as bad as it sounds, however, because most of the time even the inaccurate ID's give me a place to start from to find the correct plant on my own. I think my one complaint is that I find it very difficult to change the incorrect ID's to the correct one, once I find it. I suspect I may be doing something wrong, but all I can get it to do is let me change/give it a common nickname. As I said though, I think this may be on me. I fully recommend the app, and plan to renew my sub when the time comes.

Best Plant Identifier Out There. I downloaded this app, hoping to know the name of some wildflowers in my woods. But I had some doubts. It looked so cool, which meant it looked like it cost money. I was shocked to see that identifying plants was free. Almost everything was free, and most of the time, it is very accurate at telling you what the plant names are. It only sometimes gets the plant wrong, but that’s if you get too close or far away. It’s really good at detecting diseases in your plants and tells you the best way to take care of them. It tells you how much you should water a type of plant, how big they get, what colors they can be, pests they could get, when they bloom, and more...All for free!! All in all, I would strongly recommend getting the app. There is a premium you can buy, which really helps the app out. This is the best plant app ever!!

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.

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.

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.

Impressively Useful. I downloaded this app to identify a plant that I suspected was a skin irritant. It gave me my answer and I subsequently deleted it. A few weeks later I became curious about another plant and resubscribed. Since then, I have found it useful in so many applications. I can identify flowers I find to be beautiful, determine which to stay away from, quickly access how to care for ones I already have, determine likely diseases, and much more. My family recently received numerous potted plants in sympathy of a relative’s passing. The app has proven vital to identify each plant and determining the appropriate sun, soil, and care for each. I have even discovered that my tap water my be leading to the demise of some of my indoor plants. This is an app that I don’t mind paying for, and is one of few that isn’t just taking up space on my screen.

Great for being with Grandchildren. My favorite use of Picture This is to identify plants when I’m with my grandchildren. I was able to let them know that they had sugar maples in their yard. We also foraged for elderberries. I knew they had edible blueberries at their new house, but it was useful to be backed up by the app. At the same time, as the app advises, we are very careful not to consume what we’re not certain of. It’s delightful to be able to discover or confirm the name of roadside wildflowers. I’m fighting a hard battle with Bishop’s Grout among my Mother’s lily plants. Grout grows by rhizomes. At the same time as I want to save my lilies, I’m intrigued to learn from the app that the Romans used Bishop’s Grout as a medicine. Anything that hard to kill must be valuable medicine. I don’t use many apps. In fact, this is the only one I pay for. I love learning more about what’s so close to me in the garden, and what thrives in the wild.

Best App Ever!!!!!!!!. This app has been the best app I have ever used! This app has made my job 100x easier 😁 I work for a construction company that does property remodeling. I’m a permit runner, this means that I’m the one who goes to the city and gets the permit to do the work on the property. Some cities have a thing about trees; I have to go to a customer’s property and take a picture of every tree within the area of work. After I have gotten all the pictures using this app, I have to print up all the pictures and I have to mark trees on the survey showing where they are located based on the pictures. Since I have been using this app it’s made processing permits a little easier because now I go in advance to the customer’s home before a city will ask me to do so. Also, I have been showing this app to everyone in the cities I go to and they are amazed. I really am so happy that I found this app and I’m continuing to use it!

Frustrating!. I was so very excited about this App after seeing my friend use it. But when I looked it up it gave me no information on the features of the free version or if there even was a free version. It just spoke of the premium. So I thought premium was all there was and I took the 7 day free trial of premium. I finally read the reviews and looked it up on the web and learned that there is a free version that gives me all I need, and now I’ve just spent an hour trying to figure out how to cancel the premium before it charges me for a year. It’s impossible to find! I finally found the instructions buried in the HELP page, but I followed them - went into settings, Apple ID, subscriptions - and it’s not listed the way it’s said it would be. So I’m stuck: no information on when I started my free week trial or how to cancel the premium before it charges me. And no information on who to contact or how to get help. And I just wasted over an hour. Is there a deliberate attempt to make it hard to get the free version and impossible to cancel the premium? Have no idea what to do next to not get charged.

What an incredible app!. I’ve had this app for six or eight weeks and use it so often I have moved it to my Home Screen on my iPhone. It is quick, fast, and accurate! A couple of weeks ago we encountered an Asian man harvesting leaves from a planting bed in a nearby park. He explained he was harvesting them to eat. I took a picture and instantly learned it was a Chameleon plant, believed by many to be mildly toxic but eaten in a number of Asian cultures. It has never failed to identify plants, even from newspaper photos. Any gardener or plant liver should have this app! UPDATE: I have now had the Picture This app for about a year and I am still ecstatic about it. I use it several times most weeks and sometimes multiple times in a day, in our own garden and on walks whether in a park or along a street. If you love plants, get this!

First Impression... this app is awesome!. I had an idea to make and send a leaf/flower book to my friend who lives very far away. We write handwritten messages, and I wanted to gift her something. The book was going well, but I picked random flowers in my backyard. They looked very pretty and I wanted to put them in the book along with the leaves. I was trying to google the flowers based on characteristics, and I did not get any progress done. I thought, “There has to be an app out there that can find out what flower this is,” and I went to search for it. This app was the first option, and I couldn't be happier with what the description and the reviews were saying. So, I downloaded it, and I have to say. Wow! I was so impressed and it blew me away. I found everything I needed in a snap, and I can finish my book now! Thank you, Developers!!

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!! Charles Knox

Great looking app, but.... I recently have gotten into plants and am expanding my collection. Lo and behold, in trying to identify one that I got as a present, this app was advertised. It easily identified the plant. I was impressed, so I decided to add all my other plants as well which were also easily identified. The presentation is admittedly very nice. But that’s were the good ends. In reading the care instructions for my cat palm, it says it’s easy to take care of, prefers shade, and is great for beginners. That is the exact opposite from everything else I’ve read and my own experience in that it is a high maintenance plant. It prefers bright, indirect light and high humidity. It likes moist, not wet or dry, soil. It also doesn’t like to be moved. It most definitely is not for beginners. On top of that, you guys want me to pay $30 annually for this app? You are out of your minds. Even if I was a plant enthusiast, I wouldn’t use it more than a few times a month, maximum. $30 is very steep. $10 maybe. Don’t waste your time with this expensive app that gives wrong info.

My favorite app!! 🌷🌱🌿🌳. I honestly don’t think I could love this app any more than I already do. It is the most helpful, useful, easy to use app when it comes to identifying plants, flowers, trees, etc. Not only do I use it everywhere in my own garden and yard but no matter where I am, if I see a plant or flower and am curious about it, I take a photo and plug it into this app to find out everything about it. My family and friends have even begun to send me photos of trees and plants all around the world to help them identify. I use the free version and it’s better than most paid versions of other plant identification apps. I’m so grateful to the developers of this app and all the time and effort they continue to put into it because I’ve had it for years and it just gets better and better. ❤️🙌🥰

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

Fabulous App - the best of these types of apps!. This is without a doubt the best of these kinds of plant identification apps. Not only does it correctly identify the plant, it then also provides a plethora of information on its cultivation etc. The disease/invader diagnosis feature is also excellent, again because it provides recommendations and the option of creating a plan as to how to get rid of the disease or pest and prevent it in the future. If you want to improve the diversity and health of your gardens, as well as create your own personal profile of the plants you have in your garden with the “Add to my garden” feature, this is absolutely THE app to get and use. Thank you, PictureThis! PS I have NO connection to whoever created this app - I am just a very happy novice gardener getting smarter using this app as my gardens have literally grown by leaps and bounds!

Invaluable tool for plant identification. I absolutely love this app! It's an invaluable tool for the casual as well as more serious gardener. It's also an excellent reference for anyone simply interested in botany. I love using it on hikes to id the wild flora and I learn something new and interesting every time I use it. The very best thing about it is it's diagnosis and care recommendations for 'sick' plants. It's saved my orchids and tomatoes from certain death. At just under $30/yr it's an incredible value. I've paid more than this for a single gardening book from Lowes and it only contains 1/20 or less of what you'll find in "Picture This". It's information is globally applicable too, so you can use it for plant id and info anywhere in the world you may be. I could go on, but all that really needs to be is, try it for yourself.

Extremely useful. I started this plant hobby only this year, 2021. Then after I already had a small collection of plants a friend showed me this App. I told him I saw it before but did not think I wanted to pay to use it. When he said how much he uses it and it’s only $30 a year, I realized how useful it would be to me as well. And now I can’t imagine not having it. I have more then doubled my plant collection and am able to learn about them and diagnose them on the spot and treat the issue. I love it when after that the app says “your plant is healthy”. Makes me so happy. I only wish you could sort your garden in many other ways. You can only sort by plant name and by date entered. I want to sort for example by perennial or annual. By indoor plant or outdoor. By sun needs, by water frequency needs, by plant age… When you have lots and lots of plants this all becomes very useful.

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.

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!

Not 100% but getting better all the time.. It probably goes without saying that this app isn't 100% accurate identifying plants. That would be pretty awesome. However, when you do see a mistake you can send info about what happened. You can also inspect the pictures and vote if it's the right id or not. It's an ai using a database that gets built by users. So the more people use it the better it will get. I've already seen improvements in the time I've used it. That said, if it's a rare or confusing plant to identify it might still need more data. One example in my area is mesquite trees. It id's them all as velvet mesquite. We actually have a bunch of kinds depending where you are. I'm so close to the Mexican border we get a lot of plants not considered in the books to be in the USA. Birds and animals too. Nothing is perfect but this app is good to very good and improving every day. As far as common plants it has no trouble usually.

LOVE this app!!!. I am very new to learning about plants, weeds, trees, everything! PictureThis had helped me so much not only with identification but sparked my interest more and more to go further than identifying and really learn about which plants/weeds, etc grow near me that are the most beneficial to me and my family medicinally and for our health in general. I had open heart surgery March 2, 2020 and had just turned 52 on the 16th of February. I have since been gaining more and more interest in learning about edible medicinal plants and weeds that grow naturally around me, which is about halfway between Baton Rouge, La. and New Orleans, La. We’re also in Venice, La. a good bit as well. With the state of the world, knowing the sign of the times, I want to be as wise as possible concerning my health. PictureThis has really been great!! And IS REALLY GREAT!!! Thank you PictureThis!!

Essential tool after moving cross country!. As others have mentioned, this app is fantastic at correctly identifying plants, and I love that it can give indications of issues before I even notice them - like when the edges of my ti plant had just started to turn brown (I hadn’t even noticed yet) and it told me what to do to take care of it :) Since I’m new to this area, I’ve used it to take pictures of plants in other people’s landscapes to figure out what will and won’t grow for me here. There are some plants that it’s had difficulty with, though. Taking pictures of the same plant from different angles has resulted in different identifications, but I’ve been able to figure them out with the additional information the app provides. Interestingly, it’s also identified several mislabeled plants at the local garden centers, as I’ve used this app to save pictures of plants I’m considering, and have the care needs easily accessible.

Love this app!. Very informative and easy to use! Don’t get rid of your identification and wild edible books though. This app is sometimes, but not often wrong. There are no recipes for how to use the edible plants you encounter. But…. Tons of care advice, and even a way to add your location to the app to help you care for the plants and hope and when to do different things for your plants depending on where you are located! Brilliant! So much great advice to keep indoor and outdoor plants healthy and strong! Love this app ! I bought the family plan so I could share with others, since I love this plant app so much. There are interesting facts about your plants you photograph, poems, stories, symbolism, toxicity , uses, where the plant can be invasive, where the plants come from…. Much more than I ever expected. This app saves me time by having so much info in one easy to find place!

Great app worth $30 subscription fee. Quickly identify any plant. The app provides basic care instructions and diagnoses environmental issues and disease. It does not do soil analysis of course. Your device needs a decent camera and you need basic photography skills (point and shoot) to use the plant identification feature. Your hand needs to be reasonably steady. I am a 67 year old man so average or fair steadiness works. Using an iPhone 12 Pro. You have to grant the app access to your camera. Should be a device that you can hold and carry easily. You have to have Internet access. The app does not access location or voice but is compatible with Siri. You have to take a picture of the actual plant, not a picture of a picture. You can identify plants in pictures you have taken previously with your device or imported to your photo gallery.
