Leafsnap Field Identification Guide

I just downloaded the free Leafsnap app but haven’t tried it yet. It’s so foggy in Chicago right now that I wouldn’t be able to see any leaves. Apparently the app acts as a field guide to identifying plants via visual recognition software. Just take a picture of a plant leaf on your phone or iPad and Leafsnap will instantly identify it. Pretty amazing if it works. Anybody else tried it and care to comment?
