Description

NOTE: THIS IS THE 'LITE' VERSION OF ROGER’S MUSHROOMS. IT OFFERS THE SAME FUNCTIONALITY AS THE PRO VERSION OF THE SAME APP, AND THEREFORE ALLOWS YOU TO TEST THE APP BEFORE UPGRADING TO THE PRO VERSION.

THE LITE VERSION OF THE APP STORES A MUCH SMALLER SELECTION OF MUSHROOMS WITHIN ITS DATABASE THAN THE PRO VERSION DESCRIBED BELOW AND ONLY GIVES YOU A TASTER OF THE SOCIAL FEATURES AVAILABLE TO PRO USERS.

Roger’s Mushrooms is based upon the best selling works of Roger Phillips, author of Mushrooms, the worldwide best-selling mushroom and fungi book. The app uses high resolution, zoomable photos that can be accessed in the field with no internet connection. PLEASE NOTE THAT, FOR THIS REASON, THE APP SIZE IS LARGE AND TAKES SOME TIME TO DOWNLOAD. This Lite version is limited to 63 species and can be unlocked with an upgrade to the Pro version containing over 1,600 species.

The Roger’s Mushrooms App is the perfect tool for learning about and identifying mushrooms, and for networking with other mushroom hunters. The app offers the most complete catalogue of wild mushrooms and fungi across Europe and North America, featuring over 2,600 photographs of 1,650 fungi species that have been collected in the wild by renowned mycologist and best selling author Roger Phillips and other senior mycologists from America and Europe. Roger also introduces users to cooking mushrooms and shares some of his favourite mushroom recipes for users to try out.

Users can personalise their experience by adding comments and images throughout the app, and by recording details of the mushrooms they spot on a satellite map. Multiple social features are integrated including being able to engage the wider user group in helping identify mushrooms, and inviting other users on mushroom forays.
No internet connection is needed to access the mushroom database enabling you to identify mushrooms in the field.

Classic Resource, ruined by social media developers

CDTobie

I've owned the "Pro" version of this app for years. I could pull my iPhone out of my pocket in the middle of nowhere and check a mushroom ID; which is what this app is for. But it has now been updated by social media zealots, and will not let me access my app (which I bought and paid for) without creating a user name and password, signing in, and providing tons of required information. Even after all that, I must sign in to use it (not possible in the woods, social media geniuses), and the app is broken, not allowing a user to read the actual information, but instead constantly jumping back to the top of the list. This app has gone from a standard resource to a miserable failure, all due to useless, annoying, unrequested social media concepts. Fire the social media team, let your old developer fix the broken app, and save yourselves a class action lawsuit. In the meantime, if I poison myself from a mushroom misidentification, my heirs know who to sue.

Worst update I have ever seen

I really liked this program when I first install it, but since the latest update that required a sign-in through social media it is an absolute PITA. I don't want everything connected to Facebook. I finally broke down and created a user name and password, but now it won't accept it and the error messages are only half visible on the screen. It required a reboot to get back to the initial screen and I STILL can't get in. I give up. They took a great app and made it completely frustrating. I am DELETING it.

Frustrating to use

bodyworklife

Freezes up and when you scroll to read the descriptions it keeps bouncing to the top and you can't even read the description. Not only that, but I'm not sure why an account is needed to look at pictures and descriptions of mushrooms. I installed this 10 mins ago and I'm uninstalling it now. How can I be asked to upgrade when the free version is so crappy and non-user friendly?
