PlantSnap – An App for All Your Plant Identification Needs


When you walk outside, do you ever wonder how many plants there are to identify? Honestly, the average person can’t name many plant species, but did you know that there are over 400,000 species of plant on this planet? Yeah, we’d say there’s plenty of room to learn there.

Well, you guessed it, we have an app for that.

With PlantSnap, all you have to do is snap a picture of a plant, flower, or tree to find out exactly what it is. Instantaneously, PlantSnap will identify vegetation using powerful A.I. technology and a large resident database.

This database is ever-growing as it’s added by users who photograph and upload the plant species to the platform. Currently, PlantSnap recognizes 103,000 species of plants and trees that cover most of North America and Europe. About 50,000 species are added every month to the algorithm in efforts to help recognize more exotic plant life.

PlantSnap functions by a powerful learning and artificial intelligence, meaning it actually learns and improves with every image you provide so it can better grow its Plant Database.

This app doesn’t only offer an educational experience, but an active one. You’ll learn the name of plants, flowers, and trees with just a snap of a picture – thanks, technology! – while also getting your exercise on.

PlantSnap hopes to fully cover nearly every known type of plant on Earth by the end of 2017. We’d say that’s a pretty achievable goal since identification can be easily made in just a matter of seconds. Did we also mention that the app is ad-free? Yep, it is. So when you’re on a mission of knowing your plants, you can do so without the interruption of pesky ads.

Once you access the Plant Database, you can stay up-to-date on newly identified plant species. So, for all the plant enthusiasts and aspiring botanists, download PlantSnap today for $3.99 in either the Google Play or App Store today.
