Cool Seek App - ID plants/bugs/etc.

Hey all. Just a PSA for those interested to download the Seek app (link), It's truly amazing how great and instantaneous (real-time) the app can identify everything from trees/flower to insects. Sadly it sucks for fish, but it's pretty cool to be certain of a particular species you are looking at. Here's a relatively crappy pic I took of a spider that cruised just above my head on a previous mountain biking ride.

I really like this, have you tried it on any plants or trees yet?

It excels at those! Even better, it correlates through a regional database, making it fast and relevant.

I just loaded it onto my wifes phone, maybe now she will quit asking me if every leaf is poison Ivy. Thanks for the heads up.

Default Missed most of plants

Except for my mango and jackfruit trees, it had no idea what most of the plants in my yard are.

Couldn't I'd a lime tree or kumquat but did get housecat on the second try!

Gonna keep trying, I've been looking for an app like this for a while. Probably just need to learn how to work it.
