  • Never correct

    By Songbyrd140
    I can’t get this app to give me correct info. I have even taken a photo of a plant with the iID tag on it and the app brings up things that are bot even close! Horrible!
  • Not impressed

    By melvin hickelby
    I attempted identifying several plants. I tested each plant with several pictures and the plant was missidentified at least half the time. I'm sorry I didn't get better results.
  • Not great

    By M1X2Y3Z4
    Many identifications are inaccurate
  • Meh

    By HornGal88
    I tried it on a plant that I knew and it gave me five wildly different suggestions. If I didn’t already know the plant, the app wouldn’t have helped me one bit. Deleted.
  • Clunky

    By Investedistrict
    I found that this does not work as well as some other apps I’ve tried in identifying plants. Also, I understand the need to monetize, but watching several ads and not getting the extra snaps promised was a pretty frustrating experience
  • Not helpful for caring for plants

    By MegEMcD
    Am I missing something...? It took me a while to identify my first plant. It would be nice if each suggested plant had several pictures, one of a leaf, then one in full bloom or in a pot, instead of just a close-up of one leaf. I actually ended up googling to find my plant. I want to use this to care for my plants but under planting and watering instructions it says the same thing for each plant. Things like, “Consider if they will receive enough sunlight and moisture, is there space for them to grow to their full size, what type of soil do you have and how exposed it will be to the elements?” It doesn’t actually tell you what kind of soil the particular plant you have should have. I don’t get how this is helpful.
  • Misidentified and no way to correct

    By Hopula
    Why have I subscribed? Maybe because it was correct on one pic I took. Now mainly Mis identify and no way to correct. By the way, the site gives a 404 site not found error.
  • Disappointed

    By Farrnorth61
    I live in northern Wisconsin and, sorry to say, it hasn’t gotten one right. I tried it on plants I know. It called a birch tree a poplar, it called a burning bush a poison sumac, etc. After reading the other reviews I was excited but now I can’t trust what it says. Sorry. I was hopeful.
  • Beware of fraudulent practice

    By Music_Kritick
    I got the app to try it out. I was willing to subscribe but wanted to see if it would work for my purposes first, so I initially used just the free features. When I ran out of my daily allotment of snaps, it offered 5 additional snaps for a price or 3 additional snaps in exchange for watching ads. I chose the ads. After watching, it still said I was out of snaps and made me the same offer. I watched their ads four times and never received additional snaps. This app is enticing people to watch ads and receiving ad revenue without providing the promised benefit. That amounts to fraud in my book. For that alone they deserve no stars, but I did give two stars since it seemed to work okay during my limited trial.
  • Totally Inaccurate

    By db1126
    To test it out I took two pictures of trees I know the names of (2 different colored flowering Crepe Myrtles) and it didn’t even come close to identifying them correctly. Obviously I can’t trust this with the plant I’m trying to identify to purchase and plant. Deleted!
