PlantSnap is no doubt a revolutionary application – revolutionary because it helps you to quickly identify plants merely by taking a photo. In their own words, the producers of this app claim that it can identify at least 90% of plant species under the sun. It is also claimed that the app has at least 316,000 plant species with descriptions and photos in its searchable database.
In your day-to-day endeavors, you must have come across plant species that you don’t know what they are – not once, not twice, but on several occasions. With PlantSnap, you won’t find yourself in that situation anymore. All you need to do is take a photo of the species, and the app will use its database to tell you the name of the plant.
Powering PlantSnap application is artificial intelligence and deep learning. This means that every time you feed the app with an image, it keeps on learning and improving.
Although you may sometimes experience issues with PlantSnap (which is actually normal with most apps), the fact remains that it is revolutionary. After all, innovations go through evolution, which leads to improved innovations, and PlantSnap is no exception. So, as the app gets better and better with time, chances are that it will be even more effective and seamless as there is still room for improvement – a lot of room, as a matter of fact. As good news, you will be in for free future updates once you have purchased the app.
Using PlantSnap is a breeze. Once you have the app installed on your smartphone, here are the steps you can follow to use the app:
- Locate the app in your phone menu and open it.
- Take a photo of the plant in question. You could take a photo of any distinguished part of the plant, including leaves or flowers.
- Upload the photo of the plant and wait. The app will scan through its database to identify the plant and display choices depending on similar results.
Once you make a choice, the app will give you the relevant information about the choice. PlantSnap allows you to catalog plants in its database for easy access in the future so that you don’t have to scroll through the whole list of available plants in the app.
