EarthSnap - Nature Identifier

3.9

EarthSnap is an app for discovering flora and fauna elements using your smartphone’s camera. With AI help, you can instantly identify over 2 million plants, animals, bugs, birds & more! Snap a photo to learn about a new element, its background, and fun facts about it. You can store all your findings in the app’s gallery and create your own natural libraries. Additionally, you can discuss them with other members of the EarhtSnap community.

This app provides a fun way to learn about nature, so our team of seasoned QA engineers joined in to see what was happening in the gardens and parks in their area. In the process, they found a couple of bugs. Not the ones they can photograph with EarthSnap, but those you should get rid of.

EarthSnap uses your smartphone's camera to identify animals, plants, and more. The application has several bugs, including delayed reconnection after returning to a stable internet connection and several minor UI glitches. I recommend using strong validation and performing regression testing.
