only for very common plants / no customer service even for payed licenses

I was at first very excited about this app, because it gave me a shortlist of plants , that included the right one. But after I started using it for less common, wild, plants, it turned completely useless. The shortlist contained pants that were not even close. Plantsnap claims that one can send the pictures of unidentified plants to them, to be identified by their botanists, but that is a huge lie. They never reply. Even emailing to customer support is a waste of time. One only receives an automated reply that they are working on it, but really never answer.

not accurate and..

I also feel you should do some due diligence before downloading this app into your mobile for security/privacy sake - that's all I can say.
