App Reviews

  • Great resource!

    By Magic Rainbow Doctor
    This app is awesome. A must have for being out in the field. In one of the more recent updates, as other have said the warning info pops up with no way to exit. Quite annoying especially because it was not so in earlier versions. Would be great to see this fixed.
  • Better in some ways, worse in others

    By Ericdcompton
    This is still a great app, considering the information you get with each plant and the hi res photos of different species at different seasons, growth stages, roots, etc. It has become glitchy though with the latest updates. The biggest one that gets to me is when you click the warning symbol to see what could be dangerous or maybe a poisonous lookalike, it shows the warning and there is no way to get out of that warning screen. You have to force kill the app and open it back up again, starting over from the beginning. This is annoying, but it’s still the best thing I have come across in either an app or physical book. There are other books on ethnobotany that are more extensive in species (I think one is even mentioned inside the app somewhere), but those books don’t have near the amount of usable information or various photos as this app does. I’m still very happy with this app and hope it never becomes unusable due to iOS updates without app updates. I just hope the little bugs are fixed sometime.
  • No Huckleberry!?!

    By wendybee
    I plunked down $6 specifically to help ID huckleberry in this area, which I believe is abundant (but I need to be sure before wildcrafting), but there's no info! Plant selection for West Coast is weak at best. Wanted to love this, but I'm really disappointed.
  • No southeast region!

    By Dwolfwd
    This includes all regions except southeast, wish I would have been told before spending $$$
  • Buggy

    By M*dragon
    This used to be a great app but recent changes have made it nearly unusable. It spawns errors at random times and locks up when you try to read warnings. The new navigation makes looking at pictures cumbersome and it lacks a basic search function.
  • Excellent app that keeps improving

    By 1userofthisapp
    Like carrying a foraging book in your pocket Great personal support to improvements and issues
  • A Great Reference for the Field

    By A BlueBird
    This app is a very handy guide to have if you are getting into foraging. Mobile yet detailed, it has a lot of great features that will help you learn and record your findings. I have had little trouble so far with the minor bugs mentioned. I am looking forward to social media being added so users can share info. If you get an opportunity to join one of "Wildman" Brill's foraging walks, for goodness sakes, don't miss it! It is a great experience.
  • Lots of info, but could use more organization.

    By vibeichi
    I live on the east coast of Florida, north of Jupiter. I try to look up edible plants in my area and can't seem to narrow it down to my region. There is no database for the southeastern area of the US. I am nervous about trying the plants here, except obvious ones like clover and dandelion, because it is hard to find ways to match them to this database and then to my region. What would be good is to avoid the plant pages to what states they are seen in, and perhaps their characteristics so people can search by adding tags that match up. For example "Florida, spiky leaves, hairy stems, dark red berries", which would return any results featuring those tags, while filtering out the rest. For the money paid to own this app, which is great by all other standards except filtering, it would really increase its value immensely, especially in the field. For goodness sake, after all this time, please send someone to the south east to study the plants here and add them to your database.
  • A fabulous field guide for foraging in your pocket

    By Sabrina Raspberries
    I love this app, it's worth every penny! The plants listing is huge and growing. I love that you can search by region and season! There is a tone of pics, info and listings and warnings about poisonous look-alike species. It ALSO lets you add your own field notes. You can add pics, notes and location markers to keep track of plant locations. If you are lucky enough, take a walking tour with Wildman Steve Brill. He's not only a wonderful teacher but also a real NY character! His entertaining tours are full of history, myths, culinary & medicinal uses, and family friendly cornball humor. It's a guaranteed good time!
  • Good information but small bug

    By ColouredTea
    Has good information on wild edibles and how to prepare them as well as information on poisonous plants but for some reason I can't get all of the images to be downloaded. I reset the download fully and other times just rezip it but I can't get all of the photos. It's never the same photos either. Only around 6 or so though so it's not too bad.
