Best foraging app on iTunes
I teach a natural history course that includes a foraging section in the curriculum. There are a lot of good foraging/wild edibles books out there, none of which a teenager is going to read or carry around in their pocket. The ideal solution to that problem would be an app for their phones that is comprehensive, easy to navigate and use, and has great photos. This app has all of that!! I have tried all and I mean all of the other edibles/medicinal herbs apps on iTunes and this one has all of them beaten by a mile! Well worth the purchase. The one and only thing that would make it better is adding a favorites button so you could add certain plants to a favorites list that you either like, encounter a lot, or would like to be on the lookout for while foraging.
The only good foraging app
As someone who has purchased pretty much every single app on plants, trees, and mushrooms, this is probably the only one worth buying so far. That’s not to say that it’s perfect — almost all of the species could use more high res pictures, and many aren’t really possible to identify from this app alone because of this. But I understand that this is still a work in progress, and it’s still actually very useful as is. It’s the only field guide where I actually find myself sitting on the train going through it all the time.
Wild Man Steve Brill is the man!
As a chef, I absolutely love the Wild Edibles App. I'm a beginning forager and this mobile app allows me to identify wild plants w/ photos + supporting background information. I am thankful for the awareness of toxic plants and what not to harvest. Wild Edible is incredibly easy to use, it allows you to base your foraging off of the season + region you are in as well as what you are looking for seeds, weeds, fruits + etc. Thanks Steve for creating such a wonderful foraging app! This is #1. Chef KPE
