With PlantSnap, you can reconnect to the natural world around you and learn about nearby plants, or browse our gallery to discover new and exotic plants all across the globe. PlantSnap also comes with a map of plants nearby to help you get out and explore.

Ratings and Reviews
Can’t identify basic trees
I don’t know how this app has so many 5 star reviews. I tried it on 2 very basic tree leaves of which I was 100% certain of their identities just to test it - a sugar maple and a silver maple. These were pristine samples, part of a leaf collection book. The sugar maple it identified as a Douglas maple which I’ve never even heard of and the silver maple as a Japanese maple. The correct identities were not even in the suggestion list. iNaturalist is much much better. It almost always correctly IDs the plant or at least has it in the suggestions plus it can ID animals and fungi too! Really do not see how anyone has success with this app.
Loved it from the very first time I tried it. The app will suggest plants that it find to match what you have taken a picture of. For me it gave proper suggestion to everything I have tried. I've tried a few other apps but they just didn't work that good. Keep the good work developers.

The best app
Being a novice gardener this app is just ace. Being able to choose from your own gallery is great because a few other apps don’t have this feature and being able to search right away.
