  • Nice for hiking

    By derwood1954
    Latest version is an improvement. I’m still learning what pictures work best. I’ve been taking several angles etc for later identification. Haven’t found any luck with fungi - yup I knew it was a “mushroom”! It would be nice to see if the plant is native to the area it was found.
  • Overall it’s good

    By thatcaliforniacold
    It takes good pictures to get it to work. Watch shadows in pictures and don’t get too close.
  • DO NOT BUY!!!

    By Con company aura
    I implore every person who is interested in this app not to purchase it. My disappointment is not just in the fact that this app can’t recognize even a simple house plant but rather the patronizing, rude correspondence with the so called support team. Many attempts were made following the exact instructions explained in their videos and written ‘how to’ literature, to no avail. If it can’t recognize a simple house plant I have no faith it will recognize anything more complex. The staff refused to give a refund after many attempts and continued to patronize me. I am sure this sort of AI has a bright future but this is nothing more than snake oil.
  • Works great
