A lot of information
I have the Lite version, and I've found it to contain a wealth of information. From the multiple images and detailed descriptions, recipes, and glossary to the highlighted red indicator of dangerous/poisonous lookalikes, this app has it all. I live in Colorado and, though some entries may be geared toward plants that grow more easterly than here, it did help us identify garlic mustard growing in our area...something we didn't think had made it all the way to our location. This app doesn't replace quality field ID books, but it's a fantastic supplement that goes a step further by offering uses and recipes for your properly identified finds!
Great mobile tool!
I have gone on several tours with Wildman and brought groups of students with me. This app is well organized and full of great detail. I have used it to remind my students of plants we learned, to bring up images and to learn more about these tasty wild edibles! If only it would teach how to do the Brill phone.
This app is great for me as a newer forager. It have multiple photos to help identify plants, includes seasonal information, and even recipe suggestions! A must for new foragers and experts alike who want more info or new recipe ideas!
