No substitute for my National Audubon Society book but not too shabby as a quick ref, for most common fungi. I like the favorites, the indexing of edible/non edible, and seasonal hunting index. A page with index of physical identifying characteristics of mushrooms would be helpful as would an customizable journal to record your own discoveries, maybe even with a template to enter specific characteristics, seasonal info, location, substrate, notes and pics.
It needs to have a look-a-like part in each description. For example how can I tell a false morel apart from a yellow or are there other non-edible mushrooms that look like the one I am reading about and how can I tell them apart.
The UX is poor. Think about the user. Why did they download this? Most likely they would like to know what mushroom varieties are growing around them. For these users there is no way to filter mushroom types by geographical location and range. Another thing to really look into is utilizing computer vision and machine learning tech that Google has developed to create a function which allowed the user to photograph a mushroom and the app would be able to identify it with a high level of accuracy. This function must be built extremely well to discern the smallest differences/details because people's lives depend on it. Also I read some negative comments on how certain mushrooms were not even included and some mushrooms are labeled wrongly edible or inedible. Must positive ratings don't even have written reviews which means those are probably not passionate users
Great app. The only thing that would make it better is, if there was a way of setting the zones to where people would be mushroom hunting
Some of the fungi in the inedible list state that they are edible, others state nothing - not sure why. The pics & descriptions look almost exactly like those in another app too.
Great field guide. Best I've seen and I spend a lot of time in the forest and have downloaded scores of field guides.
