Have you ever been ‘stumped’ when trying to identify a tree in your garden? Or have you ever discovered a delicious looking fruit and wondered whether or not it’s edible? Well thanks to this futuristic phone app, PlantSnap, you can now identify any plant in a matter of seconds – from flowers and trees to succulents and mushrooms, cacti and more!

Get the app at iTunes if you’re on Apple, or at Google Play if you’re on Android.
