Ratings and Reviews
Best mushroom guide
I like this app as it’s has the best information all in one place regarding fungi in Australia. I would like some more photos with specific identification highlighted on photos. But overall a excellent easy to use app for every fungi enthusiast.
It's a good start
I was able to identify one out of about eight mushrooms I found near my place. The app needs a lot of work but it has good potential.
It would be great to be able to filter the database by colour, spore print, habitat, etc. I really hope the developers keep working on this app.
Incredibly detailed and useful
I'm new to the world of fungi hunting and this app has made my adventures easy to look up mushrooms I find. Saves me purchasing a book
