Turning over a new leaf: A new app for iPhones and iPads allows you to identify trees and other plants by taking a photo of a leaf. Leafsnap searches its library of leaf images and within seconds provides the species name and other information.

A related app now in development will search its database of political officials and tell you which Congressman sent you a photo of a body part.
