  • Won't download

    By DanC164729
    I can't even get this app to download after trying for several weeks. I hope Apple will refund my money.
  • Decent, but needs some additional features

    By martin123458
    Frankly I’m confused by some of the other reviews that claim it doesn’t have whole-tree photos. Mine certainly does. My complaints: 1. It needs a glossary. There are many specialized terms in botany, and having to google them is a pain. 2. App doesn’t remember my selected US state from one launch to the next. It always goes back to NY.
  • Rip off

    By Nursewise
    I wish I would've done a bit more research before purchasing and I wish I could get my money back. If you don't already know the name of the tree, you're out of luck with out a lot of clicking around. A tree outside the window at work, common around town, isn't even in the app. Very disappointed. Feel ripped off
  • awesome

    By vantiendatusa
    This app is very easy to use. if you want to learn about the tree in the world, Tree ID USA will help you. Recommended!!!!!!
  • Awesome learning tool especially for camping

    By tlahpallimaster
    I have been using this with my scouts and kids to learn about trees and recognizing them. It's turned hiking into a fun game. They spot the types of colors and leaves and other factors to compare with what they see listed in this app. So many photos and details are provided through this app to help learn to spot different trees and bushes and shrubs. I'm glad I found it!
  • Perfect tree knowledge!

    By Rulanv
    Super nice app! Have all those tree data all over the country! Perfect for gardeners to choose the right one!
  • Useful app

    By fanshentou
    By this app, I get to know many kinds of trees and shrubs nearby, I've always been interested in these so I like this app. Great work.
  • Horribly designed, marginally useful

    By Socasurf
    This app is terribly designed. He pictures are okay, but overall it's not worth the money. The first problem is that you can't set your profile as the area you are in, each time I login it places me in NY, which I'm not, and then have to properly set it. The next issue is that the app doesn't run in the background, so when you go to another app and then come back it reloads from the start screen, meaning I also have to set my location....again. The third and biggest problem is the organization of the trees. Once you get everything set and pick what type of tree you get very little prompting to help you decipher what tree you are looking at. It basically just shows you all of the trees within that type (deciduous, conifer) and doesn't allow for any type of sorting (literally no sorting!!!!). So, you are left to look at tiny pictures of a bunch of trees with their names listed and hope you can tap the right one (there are more pics of the trees once you click on the specific tree type and I do like the descriptions). There are so many types of trees that it's hard to know exactly what you are looking at. A peripheral issue is that people transplant lots of trees from other areas. But it's not clear if this app sorts the trees you are viewing based on general areas (like all trees in the Pacific Northwest) or only trees that are wild and native to each state (like Oregon...remember I mentioned you have to set your state). There is some better organization for some of the deciduous trees but it's limited and should be available for all. Basically this app should ask you to identify distinguishing characteristics of the tree you are looking at and then display all possible trees that meet the description (or it should offer filters that allow you to do this). Just to be clear, this app doesn't offer any of this and is clearly just a copy of a tree encyclopedia with little coding work done. It should not cost more than ninety nine cents. Weak sauce.
  • Missing Washington State

    By Traaxe
    If you're from WA this app is not worth the price because you can't use the state as a filter.
  • Don't bother - seriously do not

    By bbushner
    Absolute garbage. I had more luck with a 60 year old Golden Guide to trees than I did this app. Can't even put in map location other than state, and the photos are quite pathetic. Save the $5. Most definitely not buying an app from this dev again. Also, takes FOREVER to download and is HUGE space hog. Garbage, garbage, garbage.
