  • Customer support is slow but does respond

    By Exasperated customer 1
    Updated: I was gifted the premium version and was unable to activate it. i emailed customer support multiple times, finally received a response several weeks later and they fixed it. So I am updating the review from 1 star to 3. I haven’t used the app much yet so can’t comment on how well it works.
  • Best app

    Love this app
  • Plant ID

    By Peacock Hill
    I loved Plant Snap when I found it, but it had become something entirely different from a plant identification resource and I do not like the new Plsnt Snap one bit. Instead of a resource, it is Instagram for flowers. Oh, well, I sure it suits some. Thanks and goodbye.
  • Inaccurate app

    By Sundance Uganda
    This is the worst plant app I have ever tried. It misidentifies about 90 percent of the trees and plants in my area. I live on the equator in Uganda and the app is most definitely not suitable in this region.
  • Fun but didn’t identify my plants

    By AKcond
    I think it’s a really cool concept as I have been trying to get into propagating houseplants. Unfortunately it only accurately identified a flower from a shampoo bottle picture and one of my houseplants. I will probably try one more time but I ran out of tries for the same plants. The feature to share photos with others is interesting but there were a few that seemed irrelevant so I am unclear on if there are any rules about what photos can be shared.
  • Great app for plant lovers

    Great app for people who are interested in plants or want to learn more about plants. Accurate identification and lots of useful information.
  • Great app!

    By Emsfoodie
    I can tell this app is going to be great. I'm a huge plant nerd and love being able to share the pictures that I take of plants with others who will appreciate it. (There's only so many times your friends on social media can say oh that's cool before you get discouraged) I think it's perfect for both beginning plant enthusiasts and those.more advanced. There is never a bad time to get involved in nature and this may just be the first step in finding a new hobby! My.onlt crutique of the app is that I'm not really 100% sure what all of the advantages are for going premium. I wish there was a list to tell me.why it was worth it. But other than that I can't wait to see where this app goes!

    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.

    I wasn’t sure what to think when I downloaded this app but I love that it is like a social media platform for plant and flower enthusiasts! Take pictures of all the plants you are interested in and not only will you learn about them but you can save it for future reference! Additionally, you can see who is posting around you as well.
