Don't Waste Your Money--Boring and Dangerous!

:
I bought this as part of a review of similar apps for a mycology publication that I edit. As this is currently the mushroom app with the highest price-tag ($6.99) my expectation was that it would offer the best information and user experience. I was sorely disappointed.

The interface is totally static--users scroll-through content, just like a very basic webpage. There are also content errors (their "Hedgehog" pic repeats in several odd places). The species list is also very short.

The content here is also rife with self-promoting plugs for their web site, products, tours, etc. I think that's extremely lame considering the high price of purchase and the dearth of information.

Most critically, this is bad information. The creators only use common names, offer no regional context for their specimens, and provide no identification warnings about poisonous lookalikes for species like their "Shaggy Parasol" or their "Horse Mushroom Cap". This is irresponsible and very dangerous. There are seriously toxic lookalikes in the Lepiota and Agaricus genera.

There are better fungi apps out there with better information. Better yet, join a mushroom club to meet people who know their mushrooms and buy a few ID books with thorough information and examples to learn from.

Terrible book

:
This book looks like a mechanical conversion from some other source. There are lots of errors. Sentences left hanging. References to pictures that are way down the page which makes it difficult to identify the mushroom being discussed. Very poor quality pictures that make it difficult to identify the mushrooms. No descriptions of look a likes that could be mistaken for the edibles with possible dire consequences. Not disclaimers of any sort about the consequences of mistaking an edible for a toxic mushrooms. Adds for products and crafts in the middle of the book. Very disjointed presentation. Its obvious that no one looked at this book after the mechanical conversion was done.

I want my money back!

I hate to agree, but...

:
I wish I had read the reviews before carelessly wasting my money!!! The app is VERY amateurish to say the least. At some points the sentences abruptly end, without even finishing. I had emailed the website a week earlier asking if the app listen when the mushrooms were in season and the email promised that they were. I am very disappointed-please make this app something to be proud of. I had such high hopes!!! Don't let us down!
