FlowerChecker, plant identification
By FlowerChecker s.r.o.
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
This app provides plant identification service. You simply take a picture of an unknown plant (or moss, lichen and even fungi) and get it identified by international team of experts.
The identification process is not computer-based, it requires human involvement. Therefore each identification is paid using in-app purchase. One plant identification costs 1 USD / 0.7 EUR. If we can't identify your plant, you don't pay anything.
Everybody gets three identification credits for free as a trial.
Our team will respond as soon as possible, but the identification usually takes minutes or hours. So far, we have been able to identify 90% plants in average.
What's New in Version 1.09
- fix messaging with botanists
Pay and then pay again
So I figured that for 99 cents even if I didn't like the app I wasn't out that much money. I am out 99 cents. Perhaps this is a new tactic in making money on apps. I am suspicious of every "free" app and I check the "in app purchases" list very carefully. I'll call it my bad on this one for being taken in by all the five star reviews and not reading over the details in detail. On the other hand this app should have been free, with "in app purchases" via buying coins.
So--Note first that this is not snap a picture and find out what the plant is. Your photo will be analyzed by someone (time frame?) Not what I was expecting.
Second is coin payment. I run away as fast as I can from this.
In short, it's not snap and identify. Plus coin payment on top of paying for the app. I'm not saying it may not be worth it, but learn from my mistake before you buy.
I wish I could give this app more than 5 stars! I have been racking my brain and blowing up Google trying to identify 2 trees that popped up in my backyard. I sent a picture of a leaf for one of them and a wider shot for the other. I checked after a day or two and there were my answers. I am perplexed as to how a Mulberry & Edleberry tree ended up in my yard but glad I know due to growth habits. The cost to identify my two trees was only $.99 each (2 coins). What a deal! Thank you so much for developing this app, it's a winner!
It takes less than 24 hours to get plant recognized. Never got wrong answer. Glad that botanist get paid for their service. Way cheaper than having botanist coming to your place and start identifying random plants.
