Very helpful if not perfect
I'm not a horticulturalist, just a garden-variety plant lover, and this app is fun. I saw an unusual tree/bush on my walk that looked a little like a dogwood but not quite. It got identified quickly as a dogwood. Good enough for me.
Not for the knowledgeable gardener
This may be OK for someone who doesn't have a clue. But there is no expert back there figuring out the rarer things. The common plants aren't being identified. I was very disappointed. It is like asking the neighbors if they ever saw one like this. Even a good garden center would have more expertise. My suggestion is that the developer get some trained botanists and plant professionals to do the identification. This should NOT be guesses and opinion, but real scientific fact that can be backed up. That is getting harder to find in every area, not just botany. Sorry I joined.
It appears as though the developers have abandoned this app or they are entirely dependent on the users to do the identification? The UI could use improving. It would be nice if once you enlarge the image you could swipe or click to the next image enlarged. Creating that function would probably make it more likely that users would interact and identify at least the plants that they knew since the view if the image would be easier to view on a smartphone!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
