This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

PlantNet is an application that allows you to identify plants simply by photographing them with your smartphone. Very useful when you don't have a botanist on hand! Pl@ntNet is also a great citizen science project: all the plants you photograph are collected and analysed by scientists around the world to better understand the evolution of plant biodiversity and to better preserve it.

Pl@ntNet allows you to identify and better understand all kinds of plants living in nature: flowering plants, trees, grasses, conifers, ferns, vines, wild salads or cacti. Pl@ntNet can also identify a large number of cultivated plants (in parks and gardens) but this is not its primary purpose. We especially need Pl@ntNet’s users to inventory the wild plants, those that you can observe in nature of course but also those that grow on the sidewalks of our cities or in the middle of your vegetable garden!

The more visual information you give to Pl@ntNet about the plant you are observing, the more accurate the identification will be. There are indeed many plants that look alike from afar and it is sometimes small details that distinguish two species of the same genus. Flowers, fruits and leaves are the most characteristic organs of a species and it is them that should be photographed first. But any other detail can be useful, such as thorns, buds or hair on the stem. A photograph of the whole plant (or the tree if it is one!) is also very useful information, but it is often not sufficient to allow a reliable identification.

At present Pl@ntNet makes it possible to recognize about 20,000 species. We are still a long way from the 360,000 species living on earth, but Pl@ntNet is getting richer every day thanks to the contributions of the most experienced users among you. Don't be afraid to contribute yourself! Your observation will be reviewed by the community and may one day join the photo gallery illustrating the species in the application.

The new version of Pl@ntNet released in January 2019 includes many improvements and new features:
- The ability to filter recognized species by genus or family.
- The differentiated data revision that gives more weight to users who have demonstrated the most skills (in particular the number of species observed, validated by the community).
- The re-identification of shared observations, whether yours or those of other users of the application.
- The multi-flora identification that allows you to search for the photographed plant in all the flora of the application and not only in the one you have selected. Very useful when you are not sure what flora to look for.
- The selection of your favorite floras to access them more quickly.
- The navigation at different taxonomic levels in image galleries.
- The mapping of your observations.
- Links to many factsheets.

The web version of the application is also available at the following address: identify.plantnet.org/

Apples are really easy to identify, I don't think anyone needs an app for that?

Just be aware that the database\recognition isn't held locally so it'll use your data to upload your image\identify the plant.

Been a while since I used it... But if the app gets it wrong or can't identify a plant I believe you can ask the community. It's really quite slick.

But good knowing about Google lens.. Will try that next time.

Damnit don't call my bluff
not really a deal since the app is free to begin with
I use this app it's been the best of the plant (tree)identification apps. Just tried Google lens and it worked on the garden plants which did suprise me.

Just tried app, really useful actually. Thanks!
What do you get hanging from Apple trees?


Sore arms.
Been free for years.
Thank you
Weirdly I was in my garden yesterday and wondered if there was an app that did this !! Downloaded for iPhone, will try tomorrow.
So what plant is the logo?
I've used this for ages and its always been free. Another one of theirs is birdnet which is really good as well for identifying bird songs

What about plums?
I really like this app, I downloaded it a couple of weeks into the Corona lockdown (so a couple of months ago) as I have been using the time at home to try and get on top of the jungle that is my garden. It's been really helpful in identifying what those random bushes are and then the RHS website is very good about telling you how to look after them. Also excellent for identifying wildflowers out with the kids.
I was tempted to post this after someone posted birdnet. I've also got one called floraincognita. Since people are posting all the nature apps on my phone which is nice.

Can someone help identify the plants growing in my friends attic?
Note 10 plus can do it as well but good for someone who doesnt have top phone

Don’t need an app for that. Just good sense of smell, I suspect.

What? It can do it without the app? Sounds good, what is this note 10 that identify plants by itself that inferior phones/tablets can't?

When You snap the photo, on the upper right corner you should have Bixby Vision sign. Click on it. It helped me many times but not every time

Wow I actually didn't realise Google lens did all that, I just tested it on my Mrs and it loaded up loads of information on dragons... It really works!!

Best guesses: red delicious, gala, pink lady, smitten? (or gala again?), cox, jazz, bramley, braeburn
I assume it isn’t used to identify poisonous plants, as I imagine that could create quite a liability should it identify a poisonous plant as a plant that isn’t!
