    Leafsnap is a tree field guide for iPhone and iPad from Columbia Engineering, University of Maryland and the Smithsonian Institute, who have come together to create the world’s first plant indentification mobile app, that uses visual search. Leafsnap enables users to identify a tree’s species simply by taking a photograph of the tree’s leaves. The app will also provide high-res photographs and information about the tree’s flowers, fruit, seeds and bark, as well as the species name.

    The app has had some not entirely favourable reviews in the app store, but I would imagine it’s only a couple of updates away from living up to its potential, and it is free after all. A nice idea, and perfect timing for those spring and summer woodland walks.

    Click here to download the free app: Leafsnap for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

      Leaf snap

      I tried leaf snap. It sounds like a great idea, but it doesn't work too well. Tried 3 different leaves and it Didn't identify any of them correctly.

      I managed to get it to identify one out of several leaves. However, even without the identification feature this would still make a nice replacement for a printed tree identification book. The photos and other information can be helpful - and the price can't be beat.

      I'm downloading right now! My science teacher and I had a problem identifying one of our school trees. I think it's a tree Cotoneaster and he doesn't agree! So we could settle this argument tomorrow! Thanks Maura! And it's free too!

      I never have problems identifying trees, I look in the direction of a tree and say to myself "look, it's a tree".......positive identification without need for an app.

      I never realised that the iCloud is working already? I downloaded the Leafsnap app and it downloaded to the iPhone 4 as well as the iPad 1. That is so cool.
