Plant identifying apps

Was wondering if anyone had recommendations for these things? There seems to be a lot of them so any notions what's best and what to avoid would be fabulous.

If you have Google Lens on your phone it does a reasonable job of matching plants. Can't quite remember how you do it but it wasn't hard!

There was another thread about this about a week ago.
Plant apps have no botanical knowledge and are only as good as the pictures they are matching to. Don’t assume they will always give the right answer, check all their suggestions against other info.

Picture this. I’ve paid for it but it seems there is a glitch and if you down load the app and go to the right hand corner you can use it without paying.

I use the i function on my iphone photos. Yes to double checking elsewhere when it's important but generally I have found it very accurate.

I use Seek, it's been quite good so far as I've tried it on species I know to check accuracy.

I've paid for picture this. However have recently come across a couple of very supportive plant threads on Reddit, so won't be renewing as I can get all the help from some lovely Redditors for free!
