Much like wine, the flavor of oysters changes based on weather, region and method of cultivation. Oysterpedia, created by The Mermaid Inn restaurants in NYC, was designed to take the guesswork out of ordering oysters as well as to provide a reference tool for the oysters you have already tried.
This application will teach you the difference between a Bluepoint and a Kumomoto and give you the flavor, size, location, photos and notes of over 200 oysters from the coasts of North America. You can also rate the oysters you have eaten and save them in My Oysters. The next time you go for seafood, you can reference the list of oysters you have already tried and either re-order the ones you like or you can be adventurous and continually experiment with new ones. As you try new and different oysters, you will realize that no two oysters are alike. Enjoy.

Lovely App for Oyster Fans
This is a very handy and nicely-designed reference guide containing pics and info on the most popular oysters from the East and West coasts of the U.S. To the users complaining about there not being enough oysters in the database -- firstly, this app has all the major oysters that a diner will likely run into when eating out; secondly, the app is a promotional tool for the nice little NYC seafood restaurant that produced it; and, lastly, it's free. So, instead of complaining, let's be grateful that someone created a useful free app.
Promising but needs fixing
App is Promising but needs fixing & updating. There's nothing like it anywhere on App Store but I wish instead of just "rating" function, developer could 1) add button/ counter to keep count of how many times you have a specific oyster; 2) at which restaurant where you had it; 3) date of tasting; 4) notes section; 5) most importantly, update w/ info of new oysters & others around the world!!
This app has possibilities. You just need to widen them. Ever think of including clams & other seafood in the mix?
Great but not spectacular
This app is amazing for anyone who loves, or wants to love, oysters. Very attractive design and easy to navigate.
The largest issues I have with this app is the database needs to be updated. The oyster lists need to be expanded to include the numerous other oysters of North America. Also the fact that you can rate an oyster more than once and duplicate it in your 'my oysters' is just annoying.
