NatureGate enables you to identify species in nature easily! No internet connection is needed. Create an account, download free Flower Identification Tool and begin identifying over 700 species. But don’t stop there – take advantage of our other flora and fauna identification tools for a nominal fee. Be sure to use the free Observation Diary to record your findings, which you can accompany with a picture and text. Share your observations and check what others have seen near you. It’s all there. Start observing nature near you today!

The other species groups now available are birds (almost all species accompanied by a vocal sample), butterflies and fish. The identification process is made easier with detailed photos. Several bird and butterfly species are accompanied by pictures based on an age, a gender or a season.

The application is a part of the popular and multi-language NatureGate pages. Connected to the internet, you can click on a link and see the species you have identified in more detail, including additional photos.

The species offered are common in the Northern Europe and the whole Northern Hemisphere. Future updates will provide an even wider selection of species groups, regions and languages as well as many additional interesting features!

Using the application makes species identification easy: simply choose selection criteria in the order you prefer. While observing a plant, you can, for example, define its height, flower colour, or leaf shape. The list of possible species is refreshed and refined each time you select an additional criterion. In most cases, finding the correct species takes only a few easy selections. The identification works the same for all species.

- With In-App purchases, it is possible to identify almost 1,200 species!

    It has potential for spotting and identifying wildflowers. But as other reviewers have said, your region of search is limited to Finland. Also it's slow to load, uses up a lot of memory, requires you to create an account and repeatedly enter a password, and has problems with its interface that make it hard to enter just two or three characteristics about a flower instead of every single detail a

    Managed to open account, buy and download birds and butterflies only to find that the flower section seemed to have not downloaded properly, which was the free side to this.
