You’re in the woods… looking for mushrooms or just on a walk. You know your porcini, chanterelle, parasol mushrooms, ok, but all the other species you may find? What are they called? What do they look like? Are they edible?
iFunch helps you with a fast identification system based on morphological and color features. You’ll be able to immediately recognize the mushrooms you find on your walk using a procedure that simplifies their identification and minimizes the possibility of error.
In addition, a new powerful recognition function based on Artificial Intelligence(*) is now available. Take a photo of the fungus with your camera and the app will find matches in the database.
You can browse the over 420 selected species wherever you are, viewing the photos, illustrated tables and detailed information providing more accurate identification and fun facts. You can even find single mushrooms by their names.
The mushroom photos were taken by fans throughout the world. You can even have yours published by following the instructions on the support site. The best photos and photographers’ names will be added to future updates.

Ratings and Reviews
Nice interface and icon, but...
I'm looking forward to a broader library of mushroom species. Much broader, hopefully. Couldn't ID the two types in my Seattle backyard (I know damn well that one of them is P. Cyanescens, a very popular and much-discussed species). But don't change the icon! It's the only reason I chose this app over its cartoonish-looking bretheren.
A very nice app. Well thought out & executed with gorgeous photos, intuitive interface, & accurate species info. Two issues preventing a perfect 5 rating: 1) the relatively small database, & 2) the consistant tendancy to crash after 5 minutes or so of use. I'd like to see names with the "results" pictures, but this is minor. I have two other mushroom id apps, one costing $15, & the other costing $4. With the right update, this app could easily trump them both.
