best app?

I am sure this has been discussed before, but what is the best app to use for identifying plants, thanks in advance.

  • I am sure you are and I am not a techie but I thought it would be fun to experiment!

    I have experimented with a few and found them all hopeless.

  • Picture This is OK. I used it a lot earlier this year, and cross referenced some of the more dubious IDs on this forum. 

    Don’t get sucked into the paid subscription though, it really doesn’t give you much more. Just hit the ‘X’ on the page when it comes up

    I find Google Photos quite helpful to identify plants that I snap @naomi.gaffney which is a nice extra on top of its main functionality. It works great on Android...but can imagine it must be equally fine on iOS

    I just downloaded plant net which seems to be accurate so far with what I've asked on already.

    I've never found one that works well.
