Brill's foraging app is topnotch
Wildman Steve Brill covers all the bases in this wild edibles app. Not only how to identify the proper plant, but where confusion similar plant might occur and how to avoid the confusion. There are tips on how and when to harvest the edible parts of the plant in question and even recipes. The several photos/ drawings of each plant are for the most part very helpful, though occasionally a close up leaves room for improvement.
My one complaint, aside from the fact that the app is not optimized for the ipad, is that all this information is separated, which can be helpful if there is only one piece of information you are looking for, but really needs to be integrated better to be useful. At present, little bits of text without an explanatory photo about how to harvest a plant, say, on a different page from which parts are used for food just seem to take up space and time when both and more could fit better on one page without trouble, and be both helpful and be more aesthetically pleasing.
Nevertheless, as a longtime, amateur field botanist, i went through this manual and was quite pleased with the choices Brill has made and his knowledge of the field. Looking forward to app updates and further additions to the guide.
Fun and exciting app!
I absolutely love this app. Soooo much useful information, plus beautiful photos and artwork. It is especially useful if you go on a foraging tour with the Wildman himself-- you can look at the pictures as he talks about each plant's identifying features. I also love all the unique and creative wild food recipes. I have many books on foraging and wild foods, but this app is my go-to, first choice reference. Thanks Wildman Steve!! :)
Best Wild Foods App
Steve Brill's Wild Foods App is the most comprehensive App for identifying and using wild foods. I love that for each plant there are identification keys and information that helps differentiate the plant from similar-looking plants.
There has been many new plants added since I started using the App. Also, there is now medicinal information and recipes.
If you want an App from one of the most respected wild foods teachers, this is the way to go.
