To keep user costs to a minimum, Gaia Guide charges a small amount per MB of data downloaded to mobile devices from the servers. New registrants on the Gaia Guide website get a 250MB data download allowance for free: more than sufficient to try a variety of complete field guides.
For downloads beyond the initial 250 MB, an in-app fee is payable for additional download allowances. An additional 1000 MB of downloads costs less than $2 (Australian). A typical data download will consume less than 100MB of your download allowance.
By charging for bandwidth usage we can ensure that costs are minimised for infrequent users while heavy users are not constrained and our services are not compromised.
Best of all, if you are or you become a major content contributor to the website, your download costs will be waived. Make the Gaia Guide better for everyone and you will be making it much better for yourself.
Finally, if you find and report a problem with Gaia Guide Mobile, you will also be thanked with a one-off 5 GB increase in your download allowance.

✦ its content will be updated regularly (available after subscription!),
✦ medicinal and edibility information with icon badges,

✦ there is a list for similar mushrooms, which are available one click away,

Fungitron is unique, because you can filter mushrooms using countless parameters, there are plenty of good quality, own photos and the app is very detailed and can be used completely offline.
