Useless in important ways.
SEE UPDATE BELOW! I wrote to them about this but did not hear back. This App thinks everyone lives in Vermont. When you register the only state you can chose is Vermont. When you want to report a siting of a fungus it automatically gives you towns in Vermont. There is no way to change anything from the Vermont location. Others have reviewed saying the same thing. We paid for a good app from a trusted source and got something else.
UPDATE!!! My fault! You need to physically move the pin from Vermont to your location in your profile. You also need to do that to enter a sighting. A bit tricky to get the exact location since the map zooms around a bit. But now I know I should have read the instructions first.
a lot of people have complained about the location issue- while it's true you can manually drag the red pin from Vermont, hundreds of miles to wherever you are (in my case Virginia), this is time consuming, frustrating, and very inaccurate (hard to pinpoint your actual county). moreover, it needs to be done every time you list a mushroom sighting. why this app doesn't use smartphone location services is beyond me. not only would it save users trouble, but it would collect excellent and accurate data about where people are seeing different mushrooms. until this issue is resolved, I definitely don't think this app is worth paying for.
It’s not really a field guide. The imagery is somewhat limited… which is HOW you get help identifying mushrooms, PICTURES PICTURES PICTURES. Some species have, literally, one photo… some from the underside. I guess the content just seems a little thin. There’s no info really on poisonous or not. Most times is says “Edible: With Caution,” And there’s no explanation.. like you’ll ONLY bleed out from your eyes if you eat this one. Not a comprehensive app.
