    Not all woods are there. Hard to identify one by one. Navigation is hard. Very simple app. Just look it up on google.

    Great app. Just wish it was easier to use.
  • Miss-named App

    By Brother CS
    I’m greatly disappointed. I wanted a tool that could help me ID a piece of wood in hand. If this app isn’t worthless from a practical use standpoint, then it deserves the low rating simply on poor instruction and functionality. For example, I performed a search and got 75 hits, but the app only lets me see 50 of them. Way too many, but still, why can’t I see them all? And why can’t I narrow my search further? If you are looking for a simple wood ID tool, this isn’t it.
  • Wonderful Tool

    By MountainManiac
    This is an outstanding reference app for anyone who works with wood or wants to learn about the wood in our lives and worth every cent. It would be very cool to be able to take a picture of wood and have the app identify it, but that may be next to impossible to do, given the complexity in identifying wood. This is the next best thing, and you get to learn about other similar woods along the way. Nicely done, and highly recommended.
  • Totally useless

    By Baxter10987
    I thought this app identified woods from a photo taken with my phone. This is not the case and if you have no idea what type of wood you're looking at this app isn't going to help. Plus, there is a lot of searching and scrolling to find information. I'm annoyed I paid $5 and now I'm just going to delete it from my phone because I'll never use it.

    Great product❗️ Tons of reliable info in 1 (1️⃣) Place 👏. Great Pix of wood (Very Necessary for Wood ID). If only 1 critisim it would be, no easy way when looking at wood sample to get back to list, & ability to 'order' wood differently, Otherwise Great ‼️
  • Awesome

    Tons of information
  • Moderately useful, but not $5 useful

    By Odysseus BF3
    It's a decent help, for a moderate amount of woods. The problems would largely be a lack of images for the woods. If anything, there might be an end grain picture, and one other image. The addition of a back function, a full list of thumbnails, without needing to select a letter category first. The last update being more than a year ago isn't confidence inspiring, either
  • Overpriced and incomplete

    By FabianSanchez47
    A very abridged and and lightweight compendium of wood species. Not much specific information over species. It's more of a "common wood at a glance" than a complete ID tool. Many species left out or lumped into groups even when they are distinct woods. Photos are often not representative or are difficult to identify even with common woods like Douglas fir. More complete info available online wood ID sites and in books. Probably an ok app for the occasional woodworker or curious. Pretty disappointed as a professional. As it stands this is a $1 app, not $5. Save your money and get a book.
  • Great App, great developers

    I love the app and all of the features... The BF calculator is indispensable, the glossary is just what any craftsman needs. Developers are very responsive with any help or questions that may arise. Thanks!
