Ratings and Reviews
What a wonderful app, and a wonderful concept! Its not 100% accurate 100% of the time, but you honestly can’t expect it to be with something as diverse as plants. So far almost all of the plants I’ve tried this out on have been accurate (and I’ve been doing it on plants that I already know) and most of the ones where the best guess wasn’t correct had the correct plant in the “if it’s not this, then it might be one of these” area at the bottom of the screen.
For those of you that are salty about the app not being perfectly accurate every single time, you have to understand that with something like plants, many species are extremely similar to each other, and you can’t forget that these are living things with their own diversity amongst their own kind. You might have two red clovers side by side, but they’re not going to be *exactly* the same. The fact that this app is accurate more than 50% of the time is phenomenal, let alone the fact that probably 20 of the 30 something plants I’ve snapped have been correct.
The more people that add photos and data to this app, the more accurate it will be! Do not expect perfection, but expect to be wowed at how wonderful it is. I highly recommend the tutorials on how to take the best photos for the app to best “read” the picture as well, they’re very helpful.

A little bit of patience is all you need!
This app is truly amazing, despite it not always providing an EXACT match every single time. No two plants look exactly the same, but this app provides more than one result, and from the other options, you can find other plants in the same family, look that up in the search icon, and you can narrow your results down quite easily and soon find your plant! It’s almost IMPOSSIBLE to get your exact match by just snapping a picture and that’s not the apps fault necessarily because the diversity in plants is just too wide for any database to pinpoint an exact match first time around, but it does give you many different approaches to finding your plant in the end. All it takes is a little patience:) As for a suggestion towards the future update to improve the app’s function, I wish that there was a way that you could add plants to your collection from what you search in the search bar. I would love to document all of my plants in my collection, even the ones that I already know the names of, but I have to go through the process of taking a picture, suggesting a name, and then finding my plant and adding it that way. It’s not the end of the world, but I would still love for that to be a new feature!
Hello NSK! Thank you very much for being a part of PlantSnap! We love the suggestion about adding from the search bar. Great idea! We will definitely add that to our list! Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org if you need help or have questions or suggestions in the future. Tech support is there 24/7/365!
Great reference app!
I was kinda skeptical at first... I got this app after a bad two weeks of poison ivy. The videos and tutorials have helped me make sure my success rate with the algorithm stays high- big thanks for that! As I continue to “collect” new flowers and plants that grow on my property, I’m really enjoying the fun info and feeling like I have a botanist in my pocket at all times. I would recommend for future updates: 1) mushroom and fungus descriptions to know if it’s safe for eating raw, cooking, is hallucinogenic, or deadly. The idea of knowing what’s edible out there from dandelions to whitecap mushrooms would be really cool to capture and enjoy. 2) augmented reality... live video collecting various plants and flowers, and the algorithm can be focused to know its a location based collection, so there’s no overseas plants, etc which could aid in faster live identification. This could also help see where poison ivy, poison oak, or various toxic plants are. I could see some sort of game of collecting or helping identify could help you collect points, and redeem them to have someone plant a tree... idk. Great app! Thanks!
