A lot of what I photograph does not come up in the subsequent search. Most recent was an oak acorn with not a single oak suggestion in the plant list. It's a good hit or miss, sometimes it works great, sometimes not so much, but for me when I go to contribute the photograph after having confirmed the species elsewhere, it hasn't been taking my identification. Not sure whether it's just to submit photos for others to identify or what. Could be a very useful app one day, but right now, field guides and google seem to be getting better results, albeit at a slower pace.
Love it. Many, many years ago a friend and I were enjoying an afternoon, drinking wine under my arbor, admiring my hard work done throughout my many gardens. I said it would be nice to have something like this app, that you could instantly identify a plant that you find in your garden. Sure, I know the basics, like the poisonous ones to stay away from. But, to be able to identify plants, that pop up in your garden, would be a wonderful thing. Thanks for providing such an app.
Terrible!!! I want to identify plants around my new home... I have kids and pets and there are berry trees and bushes on my property that I want to know if they are dangerous/poisonous... followed the instructions and upon uploading the image this dumb app makes you choose the right one from a list... I do not know enough to know that information and is why I'm using the app in the first place!!!
Uses a lot of data! I was first amazed how well this app could identify flowers and plants but when I received a data usage warning from my phone showing this app alone took 70Mb of data in less than an hour, which is what I must use in one day... Ouch! I cannot afford to use a data eater app like this!
Unfortunately, this app does not do what it's advertised to do. I bought a plant, tag fell off, forgot what it is. Took a photo, can find no way to upload. I tried searching the database, typed in the word Mum, nothing comes up AT ALL. It was not my understanding that it was "specifically" for wild plants. As a budding gardener, I had high hopes but although the app shows beautiful pictures and names a lot of flowers I won't ever plant, pretty sure I just chose the wrong application. No very intuitive either.
Works very well, but contribution images really shouldn't be saved "client-side." If my phone breaks, then all contributions disappear entirely. A small server would handle small pictures really well.
