This App Uses Smart Technology to Let iPhone Users Identify Flower Species

If you've ever found yourself looking at a beautiful flower and wishing you knew what species it was, you can now call upon help in the form of the Smart Flower Recognition System app, an innovative new smartphone app that lets you identify flowers by simply taking a photo of them and uploading it into the app.

Created as part of a collaboration involving the Microsoft Research Asia Lab and exclusively available for download through the iOS mobile platform, the Smart Flower Recognition System app simply requires you to take a photo of a flower or upload an existing image that is then analyzed before details on the species are revealed. You can then go about sharing your discovery on social media.

Currently only available in Chinese, this app is set to be introduced in English soon, and will surely make for a great way for people to better appreciate the beauty of flowers and expand their knowledge.
