PictureThis - Plant Identifier App User Reviews & Comments

Best plant app - highly recommendThis app works extremely well at not only identifying the plants you find (even in low light) but also gives you very detailed information on the plant. I’ve found that after a few months of regular use, this app has been correct 99% of the time. If you don’t have LTE while hiking, etc, you can take a photo and upload later for identification. The app will save all of the plants you upload and you can either leave them on your main list, add them to “your garden” or delete them. If you’re a nature lover and find new plants often, I highly recommend paying for premium as well. So much extra information and even some poetry. On a personal note, we can also thank this app for solving a skin problem mystery. My husband had unknowingly weed whacked some poison ivy on our new property (not far from woods and a river). The doctor misdiagnosed him. We downloaded this app and identified that we did in fact have poison ivy on a the property and he was able to get the correct treatment..Version: 3.7.3

Almost worth paying for...First, note that I only use the free version. I don’t pay for apps. That being said, I do love this app!! It’s almost perfect... The plant identification tool seems to be spot on. I totally dig being able to find what most everything I check for really is & love that I can then save it to my own ‘plant gallery’ where I can refer back to it if need be. Very rarely do I leave the app still not knowing what something is. My only issue has been the diagnosis tool. It is either too vague or lumps several issues into the same diagnosis. More often than not, ‘it’ obviously doesn’t really know, LOL. Basically, I’ve never gotten a definitive diagnosis. Maybe if I paid this would be more helpful but I’m not willing to risk spending the money to find out it’s no better. Thanks for the ability to identify without insisting I spend money. I really appreciate that!✌🏻💞🌿 PEACE, LOVE & PLANTS.Version: 2.1.2

Frustrating!I was so very excited about this App after seeing my friend use it. But when I looked it up it gave me no information on the features of the free version or if there even was a free version. It just spoke of the premium. So I thought premium was all there was and I took the 7 day free trial of premium. I finally read the reviews and looked it up on the web and learned that there is a free version that gives me all I need, and now I’ve just spent an hour trying to figure out how to cancel the premium before it charges me for a year. It’s impossible to find! I finally found the instructions buried in the HELP page, but I followed them - went into settings, Apple ID, subscriptions - and it’s not listed the way it’s said it would be. So I’m stuck: no information on when I started my free week trial or how to cancel the premium before it charges me. And no information on who to contact or how to get help. And I just wasted over an hour. Is there a deliberate attempt to make it hard to get the free version and impossible to cancel the premium? Have no idea what to do next to not get charged..Version: 1.32.3

Great app with little disturbanceI love this app It’s so easy to just whip out the app anywhere and snap a pic of any plant and get almost instant results with nice information to annoy your family with! There is only two problems I have encountered. The most pressing problem is that if no WiFi is available you obviously must use data to get results. This isn’t much of a problem as everyone now a days has data or some form of connection. I have a solution for this but first I will say the second problem I have with this app is that it’s constantly pushing you to purchase the subscription. You can easily press the x at the top right corner but I think it’s very easy to accidentally buy it. Now back to my solution for the data thing. I suggest that the app devs make an option to download the entire database on your phone. This would obviously take up some space on your phone but I think it’s worth it. Also I feel that this feature should only be available for subscribed members. Don’t raise the price or anything because I think it’s quite pricey as is. Other than that this app is great! I’ve seen a few apps like this where you take a picture and it takes like 12 hours for results. I think that’s ridiculous. This app is instant. 10/5.Version: 2.1.2

Picture this I love itI just downloaded this app a month ago and I’m really impressed. I can take A walk down a woodland path and come up with names of any plants I’m curios about. I’ve been able to take pictures of flowers I’ve planted in outside pots and I now have a picture and name of what I’ve planted so next year I can duplicate it. I’ve never been able to remember the names of plants I’ve planted. I wish I had this 39 years ago I had this beautiful hanging basket and I don’t know the name of the plant so I can’t duplicate it. The only thing I wish this app did that it doesn’t do, is that I would love to be able to group my plants by use. Plants in my planters, bushes, house plants, wild flowers from my walks, weeds etc. that would make it a lot easier to find the plant I’m looking for. I can’t wait to go shopping next year for my garden plants. I’ll have such a good reference on what I planted on the previous year..Version: 2.6

Impressively UsefulI downloaded this app to identify a plant that I suspected was a skin irritant. It gave me my answer and I subsequently deleted it. A few weeks later I became curious about another plant and resubscribed. Since then, I have found it useful in so many applications. I can identify flowers I find to be beautiful, determine which to stay away from, quickly access how to care for ones I already have, determine likely diseases, and much more. My family recently received numerous potted plants in sympathy of a relative’s passing. The app has proven vital to identify each plant and determining the appropriate sun, soil, and care for each. I have even discovered that my tap water my be leading to the demise of some of my indoor plants. This is an app that I don’t mind paying for, and is one of few that isn’t just taking up space on my screen..Version: 3.6.2

Use PictureThis to annoy your friends and familyDuring the pandemic, I walk 1.2 miles to and from my office. The streets remain largely empty, even in September 2020. While working my way to the office a couple of months ago, I became intrigued by the identity of the trees I passed. I bought a tree identification book, but that did not help at all. After I acquired PictureThis, I felt compelled to ID just about every tree I encountered on my way to work. This compulsion has spread to other areas of my life. While visiting my daughter and her family for a home picnic (maintaining proper social distance, of course), I document the ID of the plant life in the garden while the rest of the family engages in small talk. My wife no longer enjoys evening walks with me ... you can figure out her complaint. I guess I can honestly say PictureThis has changed my life ... but I’m not sure family and friends appreciate the change. 🙂 A great app!.Version: 2.1.8

First Impression... this app is awesome!I had an idea to make and send a leaf/flower book to my friend who lives very far away. We write handwritten messages, and I wanted to gift her something. The book was going well, but I picked random flowers in my backyard. They looked very pretty and I wanted to put them in the book along with the leaves. I was trying to google the flowers based on characteristics, and I did not get any progress done. I thought, “There has to be an app out there that can find out what flower this is,” and I went to search for it. This app was the first option, and I couldn't be happier with what the description and the reviews were saying. So, I downloaded it, and I have to say. Wow! I was so impressed and it blew me away. I found everything I needed in a snap, and I can finish my book now! Thank you, Developers!!.Version: 3.6.1

Good for identifying, not so much for plant careSeems to do a pretty decent job of identifying plants, although I did take 10 pictures of one of my houseplants and got 4 different answers for what kind of plant it was… I wish the plant care was better with the premium version. The app knows the watering frequency and fertilizing frequency for each plant you save, yet if you want reminders for when to water or fertilize you need to manually enter the information! Other plant care apps have this built in using only the free version..which is pretty disappointing. The AI diagnosis doesn’t offer specific tips for the problems identified, but rather a basket of tips for all possible cause of certain plant problems - which isn’t very helpful. I don’t think the technology is really there yet to provide this kind of information, but the App definitely oversells the promise of the plant problem diagnosis… I missed the deadline to cancel my free trial by a day and am now stuck with a one year paid subscription to PictureThis premium that so far is not very useful..Version: 3.2.1

My favorite appThis app is wonderful. I have the annual membership because I bought a new home a year ago and there were many things planted already that I had no idea what they were. I use this app all the time just to see what kind of weeds I have too, it helps me identify the nasty ones before they go to seed and spread. Some plants that are similar like peaches and nectarines may show up as the same plant but they’re in the same family so that doesn’t bother me and I guess I’ll know which one it is when they give me fruit! I will probably be a lifetime subscriber to this app as I find uses for it everywhere. Oh, even in stores and at plant nurseries I use this if something doesn’t seem right, just to confirm it looks like what the tag says. A great tool! If I had one suggestion it would be specifically for grapes, to be able to tell the different types apart, but this is a tough one you can’t find many resources on this anywhere, so I can’t take away points for that, it’s just perfect !.Version: 3.1.3

Great app worth $30 subscription feeQuickly identify any plant. The app provides basic care instructions and diagnoses environmental issues and disease. It does not do soil analysis of course. Your device needs a decent camera and you need basic photography skills (point and shoot) to use the plant identification feature. Your hand needs to be reasonably steady. I am a 67 year old man so average or fair steadiness works. Using an iPhone 12 Pro. You have to grant the app access to your camera. Should be a device that you can hold and carry easily. You have to have Internet access. The app does not access location or voice but is compatible with Siri. You have to take a picture of the actual plant, not a picture of a picture. You can identify plants in pictures you have taken previously with your device or imported to your photo gallery..Version: 3.6

Amazing app!This app is amazing! You can easily take pictures of any plant or tree, and it will give you the closest plants to it. I think it gets it correct 95% of the time! It isn’t absolutely perfect, but this is probably as close as it gets! It has a super useful Diagnosing option, that can let you figure out what is wrong with a plant, and describes in detail how to fix it, wether it is bugs, sunlight, water, or pests. Now that we are quarantined at home, I have been spending a lot of time in my garden, and this app is teaching me so much that I didn’t know. The only complaints that I have are the expenses of the premium level. I understand that the app designers have to make money somehow, but it is still too much for me. I am not a serious gardener, I just do it for fun. Maybe they could have different levels of premium, like a level for gardeners who are just curious, for gardeners who are very serious, and for garden professors, or photographers who need to learn about plants for their job. Anyways, I love this app a lot, and would totally recommend it for anyone who loves to grow plants. While it has some flaws, it is better than anything else out there..Version: 1.31

Potential, needs moderatorsAs a plant enthusiast, this app has helped me identify a number of mystery plants own or have seen. It’s fun to scroll through and help others identify their unknown plants too. However, I’ve come across a number of identifications that are suggested incorrectly (wildly incorrect!) and even some “accepted” identifications that are incorrect (you can add your identified plant to the gallery - however there’s nothing stopping you from adding your misidentified plant to the compilation of existing images). there are also a number duplicate identification options, since you can add your own if you don’t find your plant but know what it is (misspelling or an added space won’t bring up the existing entry, so some people add their own). I think this app has tons of potential and appears to be one of the more accurate and user friendly apps for this niche. I’d love to see community moderators (think stack exchange) and some work preventing dups and inaccurate information..Version: 1.15

Do you ever see a flower, plant, or fruit and wonder “what is that?”I walk the neighborhood for exercise and would often see beautiful or weird-looking plants, and say to my walking partners, “what the heck is that?” Now, I just pull out my mobile phone and snap a picture with this app. It’s great for identifying all sorts of trees, plants, fruit, and fungi. I am curious by nature and it is so much fun to be able to quickly and easily answer my “what is that?” questions. My daughter and I planted a garden and I’m starting to use the app to photograph and add the plants to my digital garden. My only complaint is that for a few plants in my garden, the app identification is somewhat generic. For example, we’ve planted collards and kale and the app identifies both as cabbage, but neither collards nor kale are included in the list of varieties. I’m not sure what that’s about. I use the free version of the app but I know there are still many more things I can do with it..Version: 3.6.1

Not even close on identificationDownloaded this app and tried it on 5 bushes I planted and know they’re name. This app was nowhere even close to being correct. At most, it will give you a general group of plants, but if you’re trying to match something at a nursery, it won’t help you. You need more than 1 picture to identify a plant. Besides the flower, you need to look at leaves, and the stem. My false cypress mop was identified as a juniper. There is a delineation further up in a broader sense is the taxonomy but won’t help you at all at a nursery. This app just isn’t specific enough. My firepower nandina came closest as heavenly bamboo but there is a significant difference in the types of heavenly bamboo. I chose the firepower nandina for its dwarf nature, less spreading, no flowers and colorful winter color. So a 3’ species vs. heavenly bamboo that can get over 10’ and spread terribly. If you want to know, your better off taking pictures or better yet a branch to a nearby nursery or use your local government extensions to help you for free and save the $30/yr fee. Canceled my free trial in less than 10 minutes..Version: 1.34.4

The best identification algorithm on the market!Thank you to the developers! Gone are the days of carrying field guides and flipping through pages while hiking. One snap from this app and I have instant reliable results. If I feel a discrepancy in the result I can reach out to a botanist directly through the app for further investigation. I was weary to allow AI to think for me when building maps of the local plant life, however my concerns were put to rest when I discovered this app. I have been using this app extensively and daily. As of now I have absolutely no complaints. The identification database and algorithm are unmatched when compared to other available platforms on the Apple App Store. One feature I would LOVE to see in this app (and I think many customers of my likeness would feel the same).. PLEASE add a map and utilize metadata from photos for GPS coordinates so I can more easily build plant maps. I can use Google Photos to do something similar but that requires juggling apps, copy/ pasting multiple times and is quite the hassle. If there was a streamlined method I would happily pay a premium for access. Perhaps you could pull from Googles API and pass the charge to us? I’m sure there’s a way. Please do consider. TLDR: the app is fantastic and does exactly as advertised better than anyone else on the market. I would like to see a map feature added ASAP. Thanks again. Cheers!.Version: 3.2

Amazing tool for any farmer or forester !This app is totally amazing. When you find a plant and you don’t know what it is simple pull up the app point camera and shoot. Most likely in 5 seconds you have the answer right before you. It doesn’t stop there it gives alternate names the plant properties what kind of conditions the plant needs to flourish. If it’s a plant you enjoy and wish to keep healthy this app actually analyzes the plant and provides information you need to know to improve the plants health. I actually had the agriculture extension agent out to help me identify a plant I was unfamiliar with. I wanted to know if it was poison or anything bad you wouldn’t want in your hay. The agent couldn’t tell me anything about the plant so I would not use for hay. With this app open point shoot and there’s your answer right in front of you. I could have used this app hundreds of times during my lifetime. Oh well as they say “ Better Late Than Never”.Version: 2.5.1

“Update to: In-app purchases” translate “subscription required “In fine print below the subscription advertisement that comes up EVERY time I open the app, there is an option to use the “limited” version for free. It is in fine print and a very faded font and there isn’t an X visible anywhere to exit out of the paywall, but it does work without paying. I still dislike the feeling of an attempt to trick me into a subscription on an app that is in the App Store as free with in-app purchases available. I thought I would give this app a chance. Who forgave a couple of plants that they can’t identify? I saw “in app purchases “ listed in the App Store and assumed some basic plants for free and a charge for more complexity. As soon as I opened the app, it asked me to subscribe - with a 7day free trial that I would then, of course, have to remember to cancel. I thought I’d come to the description and see if that was clear and I had just missed it. It isn’t. What I did find were other reviews showing people had trouble canceling at the end of the free trial. No thank you..Version: 3.1.1

Fabulous and usefulIncredibly useful app. Does an awesome job identifying plants and shows great photo examples so you can be sure you’re getting the right results! Has care tips, tells you if a plant is potentially hazardous, shows commonly asked questions and their answers, and so much more. Love that I can “save to my garden” and look back at what I’ve scanned and reread the info anytime. Love the “diagnose” feature as well!! Had helped us identify different diseases and root rot and gives advice for care. Turns out we planted some (hardware store purchased) basil that had some infection in the roots that seeps into the soil, so now we can’t plant basil or mint or anything in our garden for several years. Would never have known without this app! Would have just thought the stalks were turning black because I have a black thumb 😂 My only critique is the cost of the “full version” of the app. I would be *happy* to pay the developers for their hard work on this app because it’s really so incredible, but $30 a YEAR is much too steep for me. What happened to apps being a couple bucks at most? What’s the deal with this whole yearly subscription thing?? I personally feel like the creators would make more money by charging less and having more buyers, but I’m no accountant. I’ll just keep clicking “continue with free version” til the cows come home..Version: 3.5

Semi accurate and beware of “free trial”I used this app for some succulents and cacti and it was mostly good. It could not differentiate between different echeveria types, which was disappointing. It also has blurry pictures for some of its plants which makes it hard to tell if I’ve got the right ID. It did well with a cactus and another succulent, though. Many people have been upset about the free trial thing. It is very misleading unless you read prior reviews. When you first open the app it will ask if you want to sign up for premium or use it for free. One would think that using it for free just means using it for free, but that actually starts a free trial which apparently is a pain to get out of. If you really want to use the free version you have to click the X in the top right of the screen. You will not have to enter any information and you will have 6 free IDs. I used those up and don’t need more, so I will be deleting the app. I’ll figure out my echeverias on my own..Version: 2.7

Amazing!!!I rarely leave feedback or a review, but this app is one that everyone should have on their device. I do a lot of nature photography and am constantly coming across unknown flowers. When I post them they have to of course have an informative description along with tags. This process was very time consuming as I would have to research every individual flower from that day, sometimes having twenty plus. I’m now able to take a quick photo of the flower with my phone which gives me all of the information at my fingertips. No more spending hours searching! I’m now able to spend more time out in the field thanks to this app. If only they’d come up with something similar for birds and other wildlife and insects :) This app definitely deserves a ten star rating! A huge THANK YOU to the makers of this app!!! You nailed it!!.Version: 1.22.2

Just what I was searching forThis app is exactly what I hoped for. For several years I bought perennials, planted them, enjoyed them, then the following spring accidentally uprooted them thinking the small shoots were weeds. I tried several plant identification apps and none were able to identify seedlings. This has helped me differentiate perennial seedlings from weeds as well as identify several unknown flowers in my garden. While it is not perfect (I have had at least one plant unable to be identified and one mis-identification) overall I’d say it has been 95% accurate and far outweighs the competition. I signed up for the one-week free trial thinking I would identify all the plants I needed and then cancel. However it has worked so well that I decided to sign up for the year. If you are looking to identify plants in your garden or differentiate seedlings from weeds I highly recommend it..Version: 3.3.1

Best Plant Identifier Out ThereI downloaded this app, hoping to know the name of some wildflowers in my woods. But I had some doubts. It looked so cool, which meant it looked like it cost money. I was shocked to see that identifying plants was free. Almost everything was free, and most of the time, it is very accurate at telling you what the plant names are. It only sometimes gets the plant wrong, but that’s if you get too close or far away. It’s really good at detecting diseases in your plants and tells you the best way to take care of them. It tells you how much you should water a type of plant, how big they get, what colors they can be, pests they could get, when they bloom, and more...All for free!! All in all, I would strongly recommend getting the app. There is a premium you can buy, which really helps the app out. This is the best plant app ever!!.Version: 3.3.1

Professional biologist thumbs-upI’m an environmental consultant with a wildlife ecology background, but in the last year have been finding myself in more of a botanist role. It’s been an interesting (frustrating) transition, there are literally thousands of plant species in California alone, and learning lesser-known family characteristics has been challenging...gotta love asters and poaceae...but it’s so gratifying when I can finally ID a plant that’s been bugging me. I only just discovered this app about two months ago, on the recommendation of a fellow professional biologist, and it performs way above what I thought it would. I thought maybe it would identify common horticultural plants like tulips or almond trees. I’m sure it can, but it’s also very good at identifying naturalized plant species. The suggested species identifications are usually in the correct family and sometimes genus, and after checking afterward I usually agree. Plant keying is still very important in order to determine species and subspecies when rare and endangered [sub]species are being considered. A qualified botanist should conduct surveys during the appropriate survey periods..Version: 2.0.3

Updated: Love it, but I’d add one thing..Update: I’m THRILLED to see the integration of the ability to add progress photos!! Thank you, developers!!! 😁 This app is exactly what I was looking for in being able to take a picture of my plants, and keep library that could help me remember watering schedules and also provide useful information when my plants look unhealthy. One thing I really wish I had the option for is adding progress photos of my plants without having to add an entire new entry to my garden. I hope to see an “album” feature with each garden entry. Even now I can’t see the full photo of my own plant without pulling the screen down, and once I let go, it goes back to the half photo at the top of the page. I’d even pay to have such a feature, lol. If I see this integrated in a future update, I’d instantly change to 5 stars. Other than that, great job in design and ease of use! I don’t leave reviews often, but I love this app enough to hope that this review might be seen and taken into consideration with future updates. 😁.Version: 3.1

Use it all the time!$30/yr (only $2.50 month!) & it is well worth it. I have a couple of other plant id apps and used them all during the trial periods but paid for the subscription on this one. I use it at friend’s, on walks & trails, in my neighborhood & in my yard - it’s been so helpful. I dig wildflowers by the roadside for my indigenous wildflower garden. Now I know what each one is & how to care for it. It’s not a scam or “shady”. The developers just let you try it to see if you like it and then if so, buy the subscription. Just like many other apps. Don’t give them a bad rap for it. If it misidentified a plant, let the developers know. It’s the only way to improve the Artificial Intelligence Interface. For me, it’s been a game changer & many friends who saw me use it have also subscribed. Thanks guys for helping me improve my plant/gardening knowledge!.Version: 2.6.3

Save the animals!I really like this app, but I think it would be greatly improved if a simple “toxic?: yes or no” would be added to the plant info. Sometimes it will tell you if it’s toxic in the “frequently asked questions”, but most of the time I scroll through, find nothing, and go to google. It is mildly annoying and takes up some extra time, so if the app design homies would consider changing that it would be wonderful! Besides that, the app is pretty lit. I wasn’t going to pay for the subscription, but ended up doing it anyways because of how many cool extra features the premium subscription has. The 360 plant identifier has been nothing but accurate so far. The diagnosis feature seems to be not working so well, though. I have used it twice and both times it said my plant had root rot, which was not the case. Overall, I would recommend it. The $30 subscription is a little pricey, but nice to be able to forget about that for the rest of the year..Version: 3.3.1

Best App Ever!!!!!!!!This app has been the best app I have ever used! This app has made my job 100x easier 😁 I work for a construction company that does property remodeling. I’m a permit runner, this means that I’m the one who goes to the city and gets the permit to do the work on the property. Some cities have a thing about trees; I have to go to a customer’s property and take a picture of every tree within the area of work. After I have gotten all the pictures using this app, I have to print up all the pictures and I have to mark trees on the survey showing where they are located based on the pictures. Since I have been using this app it’s made processing permits a little easier because now I go in advance to the customer’s home before a city will ask me to do so. Also, I have been showing this app to everyone in the cities I go to and they are amazed. I really am so happy that I found this app and I’m continuing to use it!.Version: 1.23.1

Shady payment structureThis app functions fine. However, to use it you’re required to enter payment info for a 7 day free trial. Rather than give the user a heads-up that their trial is about to end, the user needs to proactively remember to go cancel before they’re charged. I can live with that (though it’s not great, from a UX perspective). What really grinds my gears is that when you go to downgrade, you need to enter the email address you used to sign up (shouldn’t this info presumably be stored in my account??), and wait to receive an email with further instructions (?!) BUT WAIT, there’s more... below the email field, in the lightest text imaginable, a tiny little note... This cancellation must be initiated “at least 24 hours before the trial ends”—which, likely, is not the case when a user has gotten to this point. MIGHT have been nice to communicate that, oh I don’t know, when ya took my payment?? (Also, pretty nifty that they don’t have any issue storing THAT info—I can’t find/edit/remove my payment details anywhere in my account. Clever/sneaky.) Stop using dark patterns..Version: 1.34.2

Definitely 2 happy thumbs up!I just downloaded this app almost 2 weeks ago and 3 of my friends have already downloaded it and sent me texts telling me how much they absolutely LOVE this app! It is incredibly helpful and fun for all shades and levels of green thumbs! It’s especially great when you’re browsing the nursery because with one picture you have every bit of info about the plant you are interested in 🪴as well as all the tips and tricks to taking care of your new leafy friend 🤗💚 The only thing that makes me extremely sad is that I cannot afford to upgrade to the pricey premium app (which is also the only reason I gave the app 4 stars instead of 5) which I would love so so much to have! Do you foresee the monthly subscription payment going down even a little bit anytime soon? Thank you so very much for creating an amazingly brilliant app, and allowing me to get outside and feel like a human being again, I don’t know what I would do without this app! Two thumbs up and tons and tons of congratulations on a much well deserved app!.Version: 3.5

It works - no, really, it does!We just bought the house we’re in and moved in this past winter. It’s an older home, but we could easily tell that at least one of the previous owners spent huge time, and money, on the landscaping and gardens. Being an amateur gardener, I didn’t know what to expect come the Spring when everything starts to grow. I found PictureThis as I wanted some kind of plant guide app. I’ve been blown away by it’s ability to identify the plants, shrubs, and trees that are in this yard. I did notice early on that, on rare occasions, it struggled to accurately identify some trees and shrubs that didn’t have leaves yet and no clearly unique bark or other features. However, once everything started to bud and sprout, it has been 100% accurate. I have a close family member who is a master gardener and confirmed that it’s spot on. I’ve identified and cataloged over 80 different varieties of flowers, ground covers, shrubs, trees, etc. Its exciting to see something new come up and instantly know what it is..Version: 3.2

Great but not perfect. Some plants not in databaseI bought some plants for my garden and went to add them to “my garden” in the app, but the app does not have a plant matching that of the label from the garden Centre. And I could not find an option to self-add a label myself... just make a comment. So the plant identifier called it a petunia based on photo identification, but the plant itself is a Calibrachoa hybrid. Similar, I know but it would be nice to have the option to be exact. When using a text search, there was a single type of calibrachoa in the app database but it didn’t seem to be a good match for the plant I had... for one thing, according to the app, the color of my flowers didn’t exist for that plant family. I’m no plant expert (which is why I am using this app), so things got confusing quickly. For the meantime, I am keeping it incorrectly labeled as Petunia based on photo identification but will note the exact details from the label that came with the plant supplied by the garden Centre. And I’m guessing that will be sufficient to keep it alive and thriving..Version: 3.1.3

Genuinely grateful for this appThank you to whomever conceptualized, designed, and produced this app. I love plants but often feel overwhelmed when trying to care for them because I don’t know what they need or what different physical manifestations mean. I desperately want to be a good plant owner, and this app is the reason that for the first time in the ~5 years I’ve been trying to raise healthy plants, I am able to. All the information you could ever need (and more) is in the app, from watering FAQs to sunlight, etc. Taking a picture and having the app identify the plant and/or its ailments has been mind blowing to me. You truly do not need any information outside this app, it’s so concise and easy to comprehend; far easier to use than trying to google every plant question you have. I cannot recommend this app more highly, it is and will continue to be a game-changer. ☻𖥎𓆸☀︎.Version: 3.7.3

#1 among all education apps? You’ve got to be kidding!A plant identification app has one primary purpose: to accurately identify plants. This one doesn’t. I live with a plant professional with over 35 years of experience. I purchased the app two days ago and since then have taken 48 photos of plants in our yard. Of these, Plant Identifier has accurately identified 20 of them. I took photos a second and third time at different angles and distances. In several cases, the app would come up with a different identification of the plant in the photo each time the photo was taken, but with another wrong identification. In some, the IDs were not even close to the correct name of the plant. Not only that, but few of the plants I’ve photographed have been identified by variety—the most important way to compare plants within a particular genus or species. But with Plant Identifier, every snake plant is identified as just that, “snake plant,” no matter how different the many different varieties look from each other. For those of you who thought you were purchasing a great plant identifier app, think again. Many of the plants you have identified using Plant Identifier have been misidentified, if my average so far of less than 50% accuracy has any merit at all. Unless you are fortunate enough to have a professional who knows the plants you are adding to your collection, as I have, I am sorry to have to tell you that you have purchased a bum steer..Version: 1.34.2

Not very accurateSo I tried this app, and some things weren’t correct. I took a picture of some lichen and needed some help identifying what type of lichen it was. I found this app and I thought “huh I’ll give it a spin”, and used the picture of the lichen. It said that the lichen, though completely covering the stick, was a Black Cherry Tree. I thought, “well, this isn’t right.” So then I was skeptical so I tried a picture of some Star Moss I had found to see if it could be trusted,(I’m a huge moss lover!). So I entered in the picture of the Star Moss and it said Moss Campion. So not 100% reliable, but it did say that the Star Moss was moss, but it wasn’t the right type. I entered in another picture of a mushroom I had found. It said it was a type of tree that stood about 98 feet tall, A MUSHROOM! So I wouldn’t try it. I also saw that the ad was showing the wrong plants for poison oak and ivy and the other plant, but I know poisonous and dangerous things when I see it, and those weren’t dangerous on the ad they were showing. I live in the middle of the country out in Ohio, and I go into our woods a lot. So I know most plant species, like say an oak tree for example, a sycamore, different types of moss like badge moss and star moss and fern moss, etc. I am pretty skilled at it except for the lichens, and fungi, and epiphytes. So I do NOT recommend this app. Consult an expert for how to tell what type of plant it is, not this lying piece of garbage..Version: 1.32.3

App is beyond limitedIf I could rate this app with less than one star I would. I started getting into houseplants about a year ago and I was looking for something to help me keep on top of all of the different types of plants and their needs. Since paying for the lifetime subscription, $50, I have lost more than four plants because this app tells me to overwater them. The identification aspect of the app isn’t accurate and I have had to do just as much online research on my plants than I did before I had this app. The app does not take into consideration the size of the plant or your own area, and I live in a very Ehret environment, and just gives you generic watering instructions. There isn’t even a function to skip watering you have to just ignore it if you know your plant doesn’t need water. It took all of the personal and emotional investment I had in my plants and made it technical and disconnected. I could not be more displeased with an app. I have written them feedback and will update this review once they get back to me; based on the other feedback I have read my hopes are not high for their customer service..Version: 3.4.3

AmazingI manage an academic greenhouse and this app has actually helped me to narrow down the taxonomy for a few specimen that have been left unidentified or completely misidentified for years. The newer feature that identifies plant stress has also been an extremely useful teaching tool in helping my students understand the signs and symptoms of plant pest and pathogen infestations. The invasives warning has been especially useful for my students to understand and identify invasives on the campus ecological preserve too. I will be downloading this app on all devices for students in ecology to use this upcoming semester. Love it and frequently recommend to everyone even off campus. It’s obviously not perfect (not sure why some would think a plant ID app would work on mushrooms haha) but it is accurate in providing the correct genera or at least family which can then be used in conjunction with a field guide. As someone who has built multiple phone applications myself and lives a life centered around botany and computer science, I honestly am beyond impressed. I just hope most of the features remain free (if that changes possibly provide a university bundle subscription?) :) **note: I have not tried the app on unidentified specimen in the herbarium yet but am very curious.Version: 2.1.3

Great looking app, but...I recently have gotten into plants and am expanding my collection. Lo and behold, in trying to identify one that I got as a present, this app was advertised. It easily identified the plant. I was impressed, so I decided to add all my other plants as well which were also easily identified. The presentation is admittedly very nice. But that’s were the good ends. In reading the care instructions for my cat palm, it says it’s easy to take care of, prefers shade, and is great for beginners. That is the exact opposite from everything else I’ve read and my own experience in that it is a high maintenance plant. It prefers bright, indirect light and high humidity. It likes moist, not wet or dry, soil. It also doesn’t like to be moved. It most definitely is not for beginners. On top of that, you guys want me to pay $30 annually for this app? You are out of your minds. Even if I was a plant enthusiast, I wouldn’t use it more than a few times a month, maximum. $30 is very steep. $10 maybe. Don’t waste your time with this expensive app that gives wrong info..Version: 1.28.1

Essential tool after moving cross country!As others have mentioned, this app is fantastic at correctly identifying plants, and I love that it can give indications of issues before I even notice them - like when the edges of my ti plant had just started to turn brown (I hadn’t even noticed yet) and it told me what to do to take care of it :) Since I’m new to this area, I’ve used it to take pictures of plants in other people’s landscapes to figure out what will and won’t grow for me here. There are some plants that it’s had difficulty with, though. Taking pictures of the same plant from different angles has resulted in different identifications, but I’ve been able to figure them out with the additional information the app provides. Interestingly, it’s also identified several mislabeled plants at the local garden centers, as I’ve used this app to save pictures of plants I’m considering, and have the care needs easily accessible..Version: 3.0.3

Don’t do itLatest update: after reading countless other reviews, this has happened to SO MANY people who have downloaded this app. Whoever writes the “developer response” doesn’t seem to care. I have already emailed support with no response. This company is a scam. I have tried every way possible to end my subscription but any way I access my subscriptions, it does not allow me to cancel or end this membership. At this point I am forced to work with my bank about removing the charge. I just wish more would be done so that this can stop happening to other people in the future. I guess that’s how this company makes their money.... *** I have been attempting to end my membership for a week now after accidentally signing up for a premium membership. Seemed like I just picked up my phone and suddenly it was signing up for a subscription I didn’t want. I believe this app made it too easy for that to happen. I immediately attempted to end my membership and after checking my email - it forces me to manage the membership through iTunes. In order to do this properly, I’ve had to remove iTunes and re download it on my computer just to even get to the page they are trying to open from the link in the email. Overall, what I am trying to say is this app is NOT user friendly and I strongly believe they designed it in a way to take money from their customers and make it difficult to get it back..Version: 1.34.5

THIS APP IS A MUST HAVE TO HUMAN WHO VENTURES OUTSIDEI 110% agree with every single thing libbby213 said- I’d have said the same thing verbatim. The only thing is that I am so profoundly grateful for this app that I DID purchase the membership. $30 was well worth the information this SUPER SIMPLE app provided me. It may be a little steep, but I spent countless hours trying to figure out what the trees were in the jungle of a house I bought. I downloaded this app-went straight outside and snapped a picture. Boom. Honeysuckle Amur incredibly invasive. Awesome. Oh crap. Plus I have poison ivy growing alongside Virginia creeper all over my 1 acre woodland property. I whip this app out regularly when I’m out with the dog. It’s helped me identify bare bushes that have toxic bark…. I have a German shepherd. Bark branches to fetch and chew…. I removed all plants that posed a threat to her. Thankfully she doesn’t chew hostas. Anyways THIS APP IS A MUST HAVE TO HUMAN WHO VENTURES OUTSIDE..Version: 3.7

Too many bugsI did the free week trial of premium access, and loved the plant identification part. I loved that part so much i subscibed to the yearly. And canceled the next day. The problem, is that the premium is supposed to give unlimited plant identification. But the free week has only has three or so free, before you have to buy another by watching an ad or sharing it on face book or something. Even though i bought a subscription, i still could not access the ident, because my subscription didnt start until the free week ended. And the “free week” forced me to watch ads to get idents. This was yesterday, so i sent them an email about the problem. Today, i still hadnt received a reply. So Today i had to earn an ident. I hate ads, so i tried sharing to fb. i tried sharing to earn a free ident, but it couldnt connect. It asked if i wanted to automatically connect when available, i said yes. Then the screen went dark and i could get back to other features of the app. 45 minutes later, it was still dark. Total bs. I canceled, since they didnt even bother to reply to my email. Wish i could give it a 5 star, but the bugs and bad customer service forces me to give only a fair rating..Version: 1.16.2

Mostly greatI’ve tried several plant ID apps and Picture This is by far the best. It’s easy to use and I often get a match for the plant I am trying to ID. I like that the common and Latin name are often both provided. It’s very helpful that there are pics in the database of plants at different stages of growth—some flowers look very different as they move through the stages, which can make identifying them difficult. It works best for me if I take pics of plants and then go in the house and have my laptop handy as I use the app to ID them. I can see everything better and if I am unsure of the ID provided I can hop on the computer to do a search. One frustration: once you add a pic, if you can’t ID it right away but figure it out later, you cannot update the listing—you can only add a comment, so it always shows as unidentified. I also wish there was a way to sort the listings in your collection rather only having them listed in reverse chronological order. If there can only be one sort order, I would prefer alphabetical so I could easily see and delete duplicates and have pics of the same plant at different stages grouped by together. I love being able to see pics from gardeners all over the place and make comments and read the comments of others..Version: 1.17

To the developers.....Keep a history of the photos I take like a scrap book. That’s what I want for this app to do for me also... I take pictures and I like knowing where I take them that way I can go back and find them again with the info about the plant under my picture I have taken, maybe with some other example pictures from app sources. Then all the plant info so I don’t have to look them up again and have the app re-identity the plant I’ve already looked up once. I also want a map of only my plants, not just the ones that other people and I have loaded onto your public map. Maybe I just haven’t found some of these features that I have described yet, I’m not saying some of them don’t exist within the app, but I would like to see it do more personalized things too, other than just five different frame styles. THIS APP DOES EXACTLY WHAT I EXPECTED FROM IT AND WAS SURPRISED AT HOW WELL IT WORKED IN THE AREA OF IDENTIFYING PLANTS..Version: 1.20

Misidentifies plants despite premium accountFor a non-free and pretty expensive app, it consistently misidentifies plants in CA. For instance, it has no idea what safari red leucandendron is and with clear pics, thinks it’s crimson bottlebrush or a form of asparagus. It also is terrible at knowing subspecies of plants (it can barely identify my lime tree and gets the subspecies wrong—sometimes even thinks it’s a plant from another genus!). There are even a few plants in my yard that are yet Unidentified because it wrongly identifies them every time. CA plants and plants common to this area aren’t picked up by this app well at all. I only know its identifications are wrong because of the accompanying pics of the example plants look NOTHING like my plants and a google search confirms this. Really disappointing and I won’t be renewing this app. The plant has to be VERY common and widespread for this app to be correct. Also, tried to use the diagnose feature but because of the disease on my plant, it wouldn’t even identify my photonias correctly! What a mess. Is okay at identifying SOME trees and worse at shrubs/vines/flowering plants. Waste of money, unfortunately..Version: 2.1

Picture This!Recently, there has been some sort of fake strawberry in our backyard. We knew it wasn’t a real strawberry since it wouldn’t produce flowers and fruit. So I installed picture this and made some experiments. I realized that picture this could not only identify a plant from its flower - it could also do the same from a photo with leaves! When I took A picture of a tomato, picture of this immediately identified that it was a tomato. When I took a picture of what I need to be a real strawberry’s leaf, Picture this accurately identified it as well. Then, came the real experiment. I took a picture of the fake strawberry, Picture this was able to accurately tell me that the fake strawberry was what it said to be a tall buttercup, which is different from a normal buttercup since it’s leaves are bigger. And that was very correct. About why I said that the tall buttercup didn’t produce flowers, I was wrong. Later, small yellow flowers grew. But that didn’t matter. I just pulled the fake strawberries or tall buttercups out and away. All thanks to the amazing Picture This, and rate it 5 stars for its incredible accuracy and help. So, thank you Picture This. I strongly recommend this app to you. Enjoy!.Version: 3.3.1

Good interface but accuracy not great and too hard to cancel before being chargedThis app seemed great to start with but based on my experience so far it is running at about 30% accuracy. Some ID’s are just obviously completely wrong. For others I’ve taken 4 pics of the same plant and been given 3 different results, for others I’ve googled to confirm the id based on the initial result and have worked out that the correct answer is a similar but different plant (e.g. a yellow flower was identified as a yellow trout lily - the leaves were wrong, and that plant was not consistent with my location - but that was enough info to lead me to the correct id of yellow avalanche/glacier lily in the same family). There seems to be no way to either report the incorrect identification or amend the record to the correct plant, which is annoying, and also makes me worried that the app is accumulating a library of misidentified images. Finally, I tried to cancel the subscription several days before the end of the free trial (because I was underwhelmed by the results), but was charged anyway..Version: 2.0

Horrible instructions, great identifierThis is EXCELLENT for identifying plants, but their instructions are WRONG & INCONSISTENT! I have a brown thumb so I spent the extra money for premium and almost killed all my plants with their instructions!!! Sunlight & water are practically the two most important instructions for plants and their sunlight is TOTALLY OFF & water is often wrong!! For example: When the plant first pops up listing the care in a graph form, every single one of my 15 plants says something like FULL SHADE and it’s not until you click deeply into the professionals care tab that is a written booklet form that you get the correct care like BRIGHT INDIRECT LIGHT. Every single one of my plants is off!! One says BRIGHT LIGHT then the pro page says PARTIAL SHADE. Not one single plant is correct and even watering care is often wrong!!! I was caring for my plants by the initial & secondary page coming up and almost killed all my plants I got from my mother's funeral…which have so much meaning and sentiment to me. I want to keep these in her memory because she was a beautiful Gardner. I would give 0 stars for their inaccuracy on care but it definitely deserves the 3 stars for identification..Version: 3.4.2

Picture This VS. “Key to Vascular Plants of N.America “I was a Biology major in college ( Vert Zoo ) graduated with a BS degree in 1976. I took a couple of Botany courses to round out the the Bio Degree, and one was “Local Flora”. The class consisted of lab work and a ton of field work. Quizzes and major tests were in the field and the professor would pick out a particular plant and ask you to identify it , by head knowledge of Common Name and Genus and species. If you did not recognize the plant , you could use the book Key to Vascular Plants of N. Am. And you had a standard allotment of time to accurately key out the unknown plant. The “ Picture This “ App would have been a very useful tool in identifying and learning all the required information to hopefully get an A in the Class. My Biology days are long gone, but I still have a very keen interest in identifying and knowing what is out in our local environment, in both Zoology and Botany. If everyone had this App, then there would be no excuse for anyone not recognizing Toxicodendron radicans “Poison Ivy”in the field. Sincerely, JST.Version: 1.34.5

A truly excellent app!I recently found myself with some time on my hands to hike the trails of Balboa Park in San Diego. I practiced herbal medicine for many years under my acupuncture license in several states, but it's been a long time since I identified and collected plants in the wild. So, I thought it would be fun if I could identify some of the local plants. Spoiler alert: most of them do not appear to be of any medicinal value, but they're still fun to look at. This is the second or third app of this sort that I have tested, and it is infinitely better than any of the others. When you first open the app, it looks like you need to buy a subscription to use it, but that is not the case. You can dismiss the subscription prompt and open the camera to snap a pic. I'm not sure exactly what you get with the subscription, but it looks like it would be useful for a serious hobbyist and awesome for serious home gardening enthusiasts and organic farmers. In fact, an organic farmer friend of mine says that he regularly uses it to identify weeds in his crops. The only thing I've run across so far that I can't do with the free version is save the photos. There may also be a limit to the total number of pictures per day, but I am not sure and definitely have yet to max out on one of my hikes. Enthusiastically recommended with no conflict of interest..Version: 2.0.6

Do not sign up!Don’t sign up for the free week unless you intend on paying the whole year fee! Even if you cancel during the free period, they will still charge you. I signed up and cancelled on the very same day and I got charged the full year 6 days later. No notification or anything, so if you have cancelled, check that your money has not been taken. So disappointed as I liked the idea (even though it was not exactly what I was after, hence the cancellation) but I will never go near this app again..Version: 2.0.5

Wow??I had this plant that i found just vibing on a public path down a few streets completely out of the dirt (probably dragged out by a feral rabbit) and i took it home not knowing how to care and save it at all, and i saw someone recommended this app so i used it and it was recognised and gave me heaps of tips and tricks on how to save it! i’ll reccomend this to my friends.Version: 2.5.5

Not one correct identificationTo test this app, I photographed four Australian natives from our garden. None were identified correctly. While it did a good job with general classification based on plant shape, everything beyond that was very wrong. For one plant, it suggested plants with completely different flowers where the flower size, grouping (photo had clumped flowers, suggestions all had single flowers) and colour (white submitted, coloured suggested) were all wrong. It is impossible to adjust the focus within the app, so I used my photo app to ensure that each specific plant I was identifying was in focus. I also made efforts to ensure plant shape, leaves and flowers were all in frame (plus one where the image focused primarily on the flowers). So with clear, in focus, photographs the app was unable to correctly identify any of the plants submitted (all were falsely identified as European species). Perhaps it will work with Asian, European or North American plants but it is no good with Australian natives..Version: 1.14

Great app. Very informativeI am a Florist and am still studying so it’s really helpful to have access to this app. It is fast and informative, I had one similar to this app although was not as informative and accurate. This app it great for general knowledge about your own plants in your garden not just florists etc..Version: 2.9.1

Good informations but wrong plants, wrong matchingGood informations but never get the right plants, try 22 plants which I known all their name, corrected only 4 try 13 roses, non of them correctly. But if you get the right plants, you will get the useful details and easy to share on social. Photos looks nice, app is easy to use. I understood that this app have an option for change the results....but if you do not know the name of plant and you hope this app can help you the right name....what is a reason to change the results for? Unless you know the right name and they gave you the wrong name...and when I corrected the name, no results. This app identified my Iris to Indian wood oak! And recommend that iris plants are roots rod! If your photos are common plants such as marigolds, thyme, lavender, mints, azalea..mostly you will get the right answer. Please keeping update...this app will become an useful app. Also a great guideline for the gardener..Version: 2.8.1

Apps Great, Company is a parasiteSure, download the app, you probably have a curious flower or tree that you’d just love to find out about. Points where they’re due the user interface is great, the app is easy to use and identifies just about anything, even down to the the condition of the plants you’ve pictured. Unfortunately, the free weekly trial becomes a real pain in the bum when they sting you with an automatic annual subscription without a “are you enjoying the app, would you like the paid version?” Sure, I’m not blameless, I could have set reminders, but these people thrive on people forgetting and then it being too late. They know that some percentage of y’all will forget and they grub up those tasty auto-subscribes like roaches in the night. Screw em, send a photo to your grandma and ask her instead..Version: 2.6.3

ImpressiveThe free version appears to work well. I am just wondering what the limitations of the free version are. It only appears to accept 3 or 4 plant photos per day. Is this correct or do I need to edit something in settings? What is the extent of the diagnostic service for the free version? Is there a limit to the number of photos I can save in “my garden?” A list of the limitations of the free version would be most helpful in deciding whether to retain that or go for the pro version..Version: 3.0.3

Stuck in camera modeI had downloaded the app today and after taking 50 odd photos to identify and save to my garden folder, I took another photo and the app got stuck in the camera setting and I couldn’t get out of the camera so had to delete the app and reinstall it. I was quite disappointed. I will continue to use the app in the hope this won’t happen again before whilst in the 7 day free trial period before making the decision to purchase the app..Version: 3.7.3

A mustHey, this game is so genius, everyone should have it. If you see a plant in someone else’s garden, and you want to see what species it is, you can just take a clear and specific picture and it will identify it! Then you can see all the info on how to care it It also has info on things for your garden, like how to identify weeds and how to get rid of each. You can also check out other wacky plants people posted! Get it now!.Version: 1.27.1

Pretty good. Not super accurate but it’s learningI paid for a couple months gold+premium on this app, it definitely taught me a lot of things. After my subscription expired and I could no longer afford the prices, it is asking me to pay $12 for a succulent and cacti pack , I now realise why it always identifies the plants in the same couple of categories..... but hey, it’s better than pretty much all the other apps out there I’ve tried. Thanks PictureThis.Version: 2.9.1

Refunded me straight awayI signed up for a 1 week free trial and forgot to cancel at the end of the week. The app was great for identifying a tree, but I only needed it to identify 1 tree then no longer had a use for the app. I contacted customer service and Phoebe said she would refund me the money, she replied on the same morning. Thanks heaps. Such good service I want to sign back up!haha Or will recommend to friends who would actually use the app more frequently. Thanks !.Version: 2.6.9

AccurateLoving this app. It’s very accurate and very easy to use. Would be great if there was some sort of discount if you also purchase/subscribe to the Picture Bird and Picture Insect apps. Would love to use all three but $40/year annual subscription each is a bit ridiculous. Maybe there could be a price for subscribing to all three? Regardless, highly recommend this app..Version: 3.7.2

Great App to have on your phoneThe app info is accurate. The information is really useful. You don’t have to pay to use the app, there is that option if you want all of the features, but it’s still great without spending money. Use it for nature walks with your kids, bushwalking, travelling, gardening, you’ll enjoy this app!.Version: 3.6.1

Picture This MagicI love this app, it’s the most useful app I have purchased and highly recommend it to anyone who loves flowers and trees. I use it whenever I see a plant that I love and whenever I need information about the care and needs of my plants. The photos and information are excellent..Version: 3.0.1

What a SCAM!This is the worst app I have ever tried...apart from the fact that I didn’t want nor need this app, I ended up being charged $30 for something that doesn’t work. I contacted the developers to say that I had been charged for a subscription but they still insist I be charged. I had a horticulturist check some of the plant photos in Australia and he confirmed that they were wrong!! WARNING...this is an app that does not work...the way they charge you after a 7 day trial is a SCAM... Please read all the other negative reviews before you even consider trialling this app...what a joke! Don’t trust my review, read all the other reviews by people that have been SCAMMED by this app as well..Version: 1.24.1

“Free” trial trapI (like others, now that I’ve read the reviews) were automatically set up to be charged the full year’s subscription (AUD$30😱) after downloading the app as what looked like a free 7 day trial. This is a trap for young players😡! How does Apple even allow this?🤷🏻‍♂️ Surely you should be asked at the end of the 7 day period if you’d like to pay for the subscription. There’s even 6 subscription options from $2.99 all the way up, but I wasn’t even asked which one I’d like - of course it put me on the most expensive one. I had to look up online how to find the place to unsubscribe (under my Apple ID in Settings), which I did immediately! This was NOT a good user experience 😞.Version: 1.17

Such a lovely place to lose hours onThis is the first app review I’ve written, but I feel I owe it to you guys for giving us such a lovely free app! It has given me lots of accurate results, and my ‘nature walk’ is not interrupted by ads and pop-ups. There’s lots of opportunities for different ID’s - you can always get a second or third option just by taking a different photo - maybe change the angle, close up on a flower or leaf etc. And if you still aren’t quite satisfied by that, you can always offer up your plant to the community for some other ideas. I spend a LOT of time here and always come away feeling calm and happy 🌱🤔🌿😌.Version: 1.9

Awesome AppWhat I really love about Picture This app is that it tells you so much about the plant/tree. If Pictures This doesn’t tell you about it, it is probably not worth knowing! Well done and I definitely think it is worth paying to use the app for detailed info by subscribing to the small annual fee..Version: 2.6.12

Could be betterWhilst the app is correct maybe 60% of the time - it is often wrong and does not give you the opportunity for you to tell it it is wrong, or to ask for it to try again. Also I think it would be useful for the app to take note of where you are. It often misidentifies Australian natives as exotic plants. I feel sure it could improve by taking feedback on every plant it ‘identifies’ and collects info on what you think it might be if you believe the app to be wrong. There are so many plants in the world the app can never have enough training!.Version: 2.6.10

FRAUDULENT In App Subscription CancellationBEWARE !!! I have previously requested to end my trial account from within the PictureThis application on the 16th of January and have been charged a membership fee. I submitted a support request to have the account charge reversed as I clearly did not authorise the payment, I requested my subscription to be canceled, and my account and data deleted and to contact me when completed. Here is the unacceptable response I received... ——— * START EMAIL RESPONSE * ——— If you were charged for PictureThis by Apple after purchasing a subscription on an iPhone or iPad and would like a refund, you could contact Apple directly. Please note we don't sell PictureThis directly and therefore are unable to do refunds. Ours is like a manufacturer - distributor kind of relationship. It's the same as you buying something from your local grocery store but asking for a refund from the manufacturer of the product. Therefore, only Apple can process refunds for purchases made on iPhone or iPad. ——— * END * ——— I am furious this has occurred..Version: 2.8.1

Deceptive subscription tacticsSubmitted a cancellation request after trialling the app (which identified two different plants as the same thing), to receive an automated response and then a follow up email titled ‘request updated’ and saying they were sorry to see me go. Follow a whole pile of rubbish marketing about the app (which I ignored) and I NOW find that at the very end of the email there’s additional information about how to actually cancel the subscription... that you’ve already requested... a request that they’ve noted as ‘updated’. Absolute sham..Version: 2.9

Absolutely Amazing!I love this app a lot! So far all of the plants that I have scanned are right, I know because my mum knows a lot about some plants in my garden. This app even tells you other suggestions if the first one is maybe wrong. It is SUPER easy to use because all you have to do is take a picture of the plant! I recommend this app to everyone who wants to know more about their plant..Version: 2.6.8

Top appFor ages I’ve been trying apps that supposedly id plants, I finally found one that did! I was amazed it knew what a utricularia was, its amazingly accurate. Well done whoever made this, absolutely love your work. Get this app, you won’t be disappointed. One suggestion though, if it’s possible consider a change of name for the app, I only found this because someone told me about it, I probably wouldn’t have otherwise, and going by the name I would have thought this was a picture framing app. It’s just a suggestion, this is a fantastic app and it would be a shame to keep it hidden from the world.Version: 1.7

Identifies CorrectlyThis app is really good because it is free, has almost no ads(maybe even none) and quite easy to use. The only two things I don’t really like about it is that it sometimes doesn’t identify correctly and it need internet. I also use 3 other apps from the same developer : picture bird, picture mushroom and picture insect.Version: 1.34

🌿🌱The best plant identification app ever! 🌱🌿Just snap a photo, wait for the app to identify and BOOM! Select the one that matches out of 3, and instantly there’s care instructions, facts and just about everything you need to know about the plant. I have all my indoor and outdoor plants identified plus I know how to properly care for them now! I’m super satisfied with it and I’ve even told a few of my greenthumb friends about it (believe it or not, I got really excited about this app aha) I wish I could rate this higher! 🥰💖.Version: 1.28

Totally Deceptive PracticesIf you need to be so deceptive to sell your incredibly overpriced subscription ($30 per month? Seriously? Twice the price of a basic Photoshop subscription ?!😂😂😂 Who do you think you are?!🤨) your product is obviously not good enough to sell itself. User be warned: this app is a classic money grab. Regardless of the functionality of your product, your sales tactics are despicable. You deserve no stars. Unfortunately, I have to give at least one☹️ Response: For an app, $30 per year is still way too expensive. Comparative and significantly better developed apps cost half that to buy outright. You’ve over valued your product. Further to that, trying to sneak in the most expensive of your subscriptions is just deceptive. This is blatantly clear from the feedback. Aside from all that, you probably have a decent app, but it gets lost in the cash grab, which builds a chasm of distrust with your potential customer..Version: 1.22.1

Absolutely awesome!I downloaded this app to help try and identify some weeds and vines that were growing in the yard with all intentions of deleting it before the end of the free trial, but honestly, this app rules! Not only did it give a almost constantly accurate identification for most of the plants on my yard, but also has tons of information on said plants and how to deal with them. Only unfortunate downside to this app is that some times it will miss identify plants or give different identification to the same plant if different photos are provided. There is, however, the option to ask a botanist to help identify or diagnose your plant. Overall I am very impressed with this app and will be keeping it around. Cheers!.Version: 2.10.2

Fabulous APPI’ve tried most of them and this is definitely the best. I particularly love that it identifies if the plant needs tlc and a separate section allows me to get a specific issue ‘diagnosed’ along with solid advice. It offers a great history of the plant too which always manages to surprise me. Love this app and was more than happy to pay the annual fee of $36 a year (something like that!) to upgrade as I’ve used it so often, even walking along laneways and at friends..Version: 2.1.6

A good tool for identifying common plant varietiesAfter doing a test run of this app at the botanical gardens in my home town - I’ve found this to be a good tool for identifying common plant varieties and derivatives. It however is hit or miss on some of the more obscure native species (Australia) - but it may come down to the app not having as large of a user base in Australia as it does in other countries. As such, it’s a good starting point but needs some work before I’d consider this to be a comprehensive plant guide..Version: 1.23.1

FantasticI have spent years trying to educate myself about plants and plant diseases and all I have to show is unsuccessful gardening and a bad taste in my mouth in regards to planting and gardening. This app is incredibly knowledgeable in plant identification and disease diagnosis. I am beginning to refund myself loving planting and garden maintenance. This takes the hassle out of my lack of knowledge and allows me more time to carry on in the garden . Thank you.Version: 2.1.2

Not all ID’s are correctI think this app. Is great. However about 2/10 times the pictures supplied in the ID given dont match up with the plant I am trying to ID and I know it is wrong. It would be great to have a ‘this doesn’t seem right, have another search’ option where the app has another search using the same image, whilst ruling out the original ID so that it can’t come up again..Version: 2.5

Excellent plant app!I’ve been looking for a decent plant care app for a long time now that doesn’t have a massive pay wall. Sure the premium subscription ad pops up often but it’s easy to exit out of without closing the app. That being said though, I’m heavily considering the subscription because it’s a cheap yearly option with good benefits. The free option it’s still fantastic though and my plants are looking better than ever. Definitely recommend 😊.Version: 3.5

They priced me outFirst I want to say I think the app is great. Is it perfect? No, of course not, how many apps are? But I really like the app and found it very helpful. When I originally got the app, you had the option of essentially buying credits. Pay $X and you get so many identifications. This worked for me because I’m not someone who would usually use it enough to make a yearly subscription worth it. If I found I was using it enough, I’d have happily bought a subscription. Since it’s gone to a yearly subscription model I’m going to be, regretfully, deleting the app. As I said, I think it’s great but the sub system doesn’t work for me and since they no longer offer the system where you bought credits, it’s been rendered useless to me..Version: 1.29

Great app😁This app is GREAT! i would totally recommend it to anyone of all ages, i use it on plants and flowers in my garden, on bush walks and basically everywhere. it tells you what the plants called, gives picture examples, tells you where it’s from and even if it’s edible or not! it’s completely free too (it will come up with a subscription thing but just press the X in the top corner).Version: 2.5.5

DisappointedAfter reading many reviews on this app, I was disappointed with the overall performance. There doesn’t seem to be consistency with the basic information presented ie- plant height can be displayed clearly and easy to locate sometimes, where other times you have to read paragraphs of information to find this information. There are also tabs for ‘more’ which leads to a subscription that I’m not interested in, rather than displaying the additional information. Unfortunately I’ll be deleting this app and trying a different one..Version: 1.30

Difficult to unsubscribe - BEWARE THIS APP!!I wanted to trial the app and now can’t seem to unsubscribe. This is super dodgy especially when you consider how expensive it is. When I go to unsubscribe, you have to enter an email address (why?? Nobody else seems to need that) and then a message says “we’ll get back to you within 24 hours”. What???! Just cancel my subscription now! I’m shocked Apple have let this one into the App Store when unsubscribing is deliberately made difficult or not working, or whatever is going on there. Apple, remove this app now please.Version: 2.5.2

Fantastic appThis was so simple to use, fast and accurate. In a matter of seconds just identified a plant I’ve been trying to identify for 10 years. Will get so much use out of it. I’m just a home gardener in Australia. But has just bought a moment of joy and I now have the knowledge of a horticulturist at my finger tips. Thank you so much, brilliant effort..Version: 1.7.4

Bad Apple ...do not download this app...I cancelled this app 2 days into my 7 day free trail, and received a message saying I would be contacted within 24 hr to confirm my cancellation. Email recieved, confirming cancellation, but still charged $30 au after the 7 day period. Apple should not allow there app developers to get away with having cancellation conditional in 24hr via email. I am very unlikely to ever download anymore apps from the App Store, all trust gone in a company who allows their loyal patrons to be ripped off in scrupulously. I used this app twice, not that impressed, demand my money back..Version: 2.5.4

SaviourThis has just potentially saved the lives of my dogs!! Or at least hefty vet bills!! It identified a plant I didn’t know as”Highly Toxic, could cause death if eaten!!” My great danes and little dogs often eat plants and grasses but luckily theses weeds were in an area they can’t go to unless with us, but when I found out what the plants were I ripped them out to prevent them being eaten!!!! So app has already paid for itself!!!.Version: 1.30

Deceptive sales tacticsSo disappointed with the way in which you get caught paying the full subscription! They send a beautiful email with great superlatives in the first paragraph thanking you for giving them a try but then they have at least 6 paragraphs of waffle about their app before they get to the all important information of how to cancel! It is implied in the first paragraph that they have received your notification and I believe it is reasonable to believe that that is acceptable notification! Deceptive and sneaky! I too would have not even given 1 star!.Version: 2.8.1

Very reliable even in AustraliaTried several other apps that claimed they could identify plants and was disappointed in them all with no better than 50/50. But PictureThis gets about 80 to 90%even correctly identifying many uniquely Australian plants. As well it has very useful plant health identification and management features..Version: 2.7

Best free app, fast and accurate!I absolutely love this app! I am always saying that I wish I knew what that plant was, or I wish I knew how to care for that plant but I just don’t know where to start looking. With this app, I only have to take one picture and within 10 seconds it matches me to the right plant, showing clear photos and information. It really is just amazing how it knows out of the millions of plants out there, and the best part is it doesn’t cost you a cent to find out and it doesn’t take you hours searching through google to find the right one. I really recommend giving this app a try and have fun sharing with your friends and others around the world..Version: 1.9

Helpful & informativeI only downloaded this app a few hours ago after discovering it by ‘accident’! As a novice flower/plant photographer & enthusiast, it has already proved useful & worthwhile. I posted a photo of a miniature type orchid and requested assistance with its identification. I received a reply within the hour! I now look forward to learning about flowers both familiar & rare, & to sharing my amateur photographic skills. Well done PictureThis!!!.Version: 1.9

It’s good!I’ve recently started photographing a flower each day and posting to Instagram. I wasn’t feeling confident about posting the flowers names so I searched for a plant app and found this one. I’ve just tested it with a dozen flowers, some of which I already know the names of. It is quick, user-friendly and seems spot on in terms of the results. Thank you!.Version: 2.1.6

Best app of its kindThis app is so much better than the well known plant snap (which costs $6, can’t identify anything, has an ugly dated interface, and after deleting the app it cost $6 if for some peculiar reason I did want to get it back, and it won’t let you write a review or rate on the App Store.. such a waste of money) Download this app instead for FREE. The interface is beautiful, you can connect with people on the map in your area and see what others are snapping and the database is pretty solid. I like that you can view multiple photos and unlike plant snap it’s not just a basic internet search, but rather a community contributed database with lots of information! Room for improvement : in regards to plants not yet added to database, I wish they would reply (the feature lets you ‘suggest’ a plant) and find a way to add the plant straight away.. and there is some tidying up that could be done such as when a plant is added and you suggest the name for your own feed it still shows as ‘unknown’. I wish there was a place to add a wishlist!! No plant app seems to have this feature yet! You can ‘heart’ (like) the plants you like, but then there is no place where all the likes or rather ‘hearted’ plants show up in a group together?! I hope to see these improvements and to see this gain better ratings, as it definitely deserves it over its terrible competitor!.Version: 1.7.2

Wow. It just works.I had a photo of a flower and spent hours trying to figure out the name. I tried reverse image searching online and got nothing. I decided to download this app and see what happens.... a few seconds later the exact flower was identified! The user experience was great! Nice jobs developers!.Version: 1.19

Lots of Room for ImprovementThe plants recognition is not as precise as I like it to be! Thanks for google finding me the correct name for my plants and at least the system allows me to rename my plants. I can understand the photo taken for the the plant recognition system to work depending on light, angle, distance of the shot ect but it could be better. I also understand lots of people have their ornamental plants or succulent mostly indoor or anywhere that suit the plants. I wish this app also provides guidance on deterrence from stopping animals eating my plants! As most of my plants are outside of the house, some succulent get fully decimated and consumed by Deers or Wallabies. Also understand this may only applicable to some cases to some households. Just a thought.Version: 3.4.1

My most used app everI absolutely adore this app and use it every day. However for some reason it has stopped working and won’t open. Maybe I’ve worn it out :) I don’t want to delete and reinstall as I will lose all the data I have accumulated so far. Is there someone who can help me?.Version: 1.24

Love the appI am a born again plant carer starting my new green family in my freshly built living room and the plants are becoming an addiction to fill out the area with green liveliness. With this amazing app and its accurate diagnostics, references and information on plants I’m sure I’ll be on track to restarting an old hobby my much loved partner got me into and impress her with how much I learn and develop with the help of this app. Great stuff!.Version: 2.6.10

Misleading and sneakyReally like this app but hate how sneaky it can be to try and sign you up to the incredibly over priced premium membership. Often a screen just pops up that gives misleading information as if it’s part of the normal use, meanwhile it’s actually a page signing you up to premium and there is no obvious ‘x’ or close button. I have on many occasions nearly signed up to the membership, it’s incredibly frustrating. If this doesn’t get fixed I’ll delete the app because I don’t do sneaky..Version: 2.1.5
