Myco is the perfect app for people who collect mushrooms.
Myco contains information about more than 300 types of mushrooms, with zoomable image. Data is structured by occurence, characteristics, edibility and possible confusions. A classification scheme helps to identify mushrooms.
Most information is taken from Wikipedia but available offline - should there be no connection while collecting mushrooms in the forest.
Store your locations with GPS position and take a picture of the mushroom and its surroundings, so you'll be sure to find the place again. For each location you can save location, date and time, several photos and a comment.
A classification scheme assists you with the identification of mushrooms.
Additionally you can learn to identify mushrooms with a quiz.
This is the Pro edition of Myco. The number of locations is unlimited, the number of photos per location is limited to 10. There is also a standard edition with less functionality and a Free edition with only 50 types of mushrooms and limited functionality.

Ratings and Reviews
The content of this app consists of information available in the public domain. Pictures and text are taken directly from Wikipedia, so often information is unchecked, incorrect or totally off-topic. Where no data is available on Wikipedia, this app is likewise blank. This is a shame as I paid for the pro version specifically for additional mushrooms/fungi and their respective description.
Essentially this app is only useful for a broad identification. A few features can be used to get close to the correct species, but there is little comparative or relevant information for confident identification.
I continue my search for an app that has at least been vetted by a seasoned mycologist.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
