Beautiful and simple

The artwork and information is so easy to understand and depict! It’s a near perfect app and the map is very accurate! All it needs I think is a filter for edible/not, color, and maybe even regions of the US they are common in? This would make this app the best mushroom app on the AppStore I believe.

Excellent Guide

I have been using an old app, RMushroom. It will no longer be compatible with future iOS versions. I decided to try out this app. Not disappointed. The drawings are excellent and the short descriptions include line drawings of the key Id points - type of cap, shape of stalk. What I love is the ability to get more in depth information by clicking on the menu in the right corner. The private map feature is also a great way to record history of mushroom forays. I hope the catalog is continually added to. Right now there are 105 species to choose from. Would recommend.

Not worth the money

This app is not worth $4.99. having a catalog of 105 mushrooms is useless for the serious mushroom collector and having the pictures be drawings rather than actual pictures in situ is a waste for beginners. There are other apps out there that will provide a much better experience, more realistic understanding of how the mushroom appears in it’s native habitat, and therefore, help a person to make sure it is edible. I have the book that this is taken from, and it is way better. Go buy the book.
