Mushroom Identification made easy!
Quick and easy to use, you simply select the characteristics of the fungi you would like to identify and the in-app algorithms work out the most likely matching mushrooms.
You can also view the 'Top 20' of the month which lists all the common Fungi you can find in the month you are in.
If you are a keen mushroom forager / hunter then there's lots of useful info, including the edibility of all mushrooms listed and a list of good edible mushrooms that grow in your country.
The app comes pre-loaded with over 400 common Fungi and over 1000 images.
When you open the app your position is used to load a relevant dataset to show just the mushrooms that occur in your country or region. Graphs and country ranking are also shown for each individual fungi to help you see how common it is and when in the year it is most common.
Added several new fungus species.
Various bug fixes and improvements.
Ratings and Reviews
Shroomify can be your buddy!
This is not a “point, shoot, and here’s your answer” app. I’m delighted to have found Shroomify. The devil is in the details as with many things. In this case, misidentification that can lay you low. Shroomify requires careful examination of physical dimensions, features of the stem, to characteristics of the underside of the cap!
Knowing this, along with other distinguishing traits, not only helps with the name of the one in question but teaches the user to be observant when identifying the next mushroom. Clear indications of ones considered edible/desirable versus the ones that are poisonous, even deadly, sets a proper tone.
Because of slight variations between the good, the bad, and the ugly, Shroomify stresses getting final confirmation from an expert before loading up your spaghetti sauce with a killer!
Good not Perfect but what is?
I can tell this one is by genuine people and it doesn’t try and clobber you with expensive subscriptions. It didn’t get my Boletus perfectly but it was close enough to help me narrow it down. I like the multiple options and the fact it said edible or not edible.
I appreciated knowing the Devils Boletus isn’t in my area. I used to mushroom hunt in Czechia as a child and the same ones grow here in NJ so I want to eat them again. Never eat anything if you aren’t sure especially if it has gills. Keep activated charcoal in the house for any mistakes or food poisoning as it can save lives.
I also think picture ID is hard - as mushrooms are identified by characteristics best. That’s why I liked that this asked a number of questions about each fungi. Doing it just by pictures could be dangerous so I used this along with a common ID app.
I LOVED that it has which ones are available in which month and location which the Chinese subscription apps won’t have as they weren’t created by people with experience.
Would also love if they did a state by state most common but I know that’s a lot of work.
Best app ever download NOW!! 🍄🍄🍄
This is the best app ever since the apps that you scan require an iOS update or 13, Whatever old phones can’t do that and can’t have those apps so you can’t identify mushrooms this one you can! And you can even learn more in this app than those other ones and completely ad-free and even if you don’t have the premium you can still learn so much! I love this app when I got it this is my favorite app! Please download this app you will not regret it!🍄Stay healthy and don’t eat poison mushrooms!🍄 :) (and creater, don’t let anyone make you feel bad,i know how that feels and it does not feel good so be nice and stay healthy thank you for making this app. :)🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄🍄
