Worth every cent I paid (I paid nothing) A total disappointment. I own eight of Roger Phillips' books and I was expecting that level of quality and detail. There are very few mushrooms included, just one species of Boletus, one Lactarius, and three Amanitas. It looks like less that 50 mushrooms total. And it crashed the second time I used it. After trying this program, I'm convinced I don't want to buy the full version.
Almost useless. Hopefully the paid version is better, but I won't try. I tried MULTIPLE searches, and didn't have a single success. I described at least a dozen common mushrooms, that I later found by browsing for them, so I know they are in the database. I also entered several common names. Neither was successful. The only positive I have is the descriptions and pictures are well done. That's the only reason it did not get one star.
Not happy with app. Have the book which is excellent. But the app is awful. Will assume paid for app is exactly the same as free app. Why when Fungitron can get it spot on you cannot ???? Have bought subscription to them purely due to their search options. I look forward to re reading a reply to this.
Roger Phillips mushrooms I agree Joshua, I live on a narrow boat cruising the canals of Britain,see lots of fungi on my way. Love this app but does need photo identification
Only shows 3 species of hallucinogenic mushrooms There are over 180 species of mushrooms which contain the psychedelics psilocybin or psilocin. The paid version of this app only shows 6 of them, the free version only shows 3 of them. I would have uninstalled and gotten a refund but it was over the 15 minute limit. I will change my rating if more species are added.
Nearly useless Does not contain many of the common choice edible mushrooms of the US. Crashed on first search. Clunky user interface.
