4.0 out of 5 stars A good guide to the Mushrooms of NA January 16, 2012
Verified Purchase
Edit: Ive been using this app for a month now.. they have fixed most of the FC errors. Costumer service is friendly and quick to respond.

It is not a complete database... I have several mushrooms locally that are not in the guide, but a quick email to customer service, and I was able to 'request' some species to be added in. Hopefully I will see them with the next update?

No change in star rating, as it still has some FCs and could use a facelift through certain aspects.

Also a quick note: after downloading and installing the app, it requests to download and install all the data and photos for the mushroom, and this takes up room! Make sure you have the memory!

---original review below---

I am a budding mycologist. I enjoy mushrooms, fungis, slimes, and molds!
I wanted an app that was a guide for Mushrooms. And so I downloaded this!

There are many good, and some negatives..... I have the app open as I am reviewing!

The good:
-Has lots of mushrooms, many of which I have never seen or heard of. (Most likely a regional thing...)
-The Search allows you to search by any number of properties (Habitat, region, size, color, month, cap shape/texture, stalk shape, etc etc)
-You can browse their full database by name, shape, or order.
-It links up to the Audubon's "My Content" database, so you can upload/download your lists and whatnot. (Not something I am familiar with, so I will assume it is good and works well).
-Has lots of photos, great for comparing finds in the field with the photos on the app.
-Each mushroom's page has "Photos" and "Description" easily accessible.
-Glossary included for terms you may be unfamiliar with.

4.0 out of 5 stars Now, a tip of the cap.... (mostly) November 5, 2012
Verified Purchase
**** New Update ****

It looks like the most recent release has fixed the wrong icon issue! YEA!!!

Two quibbles/suggestions:

- Still lacks "Range" information and "Similar" (as can be found on the more 'evolved' Birds).

- Would love it if the data could be put on my SD card.

Either would bump this up to 5 *****!

Thanks for the fix.


I want to be a fun-gi, really I do.

But this app suffers from the same icon issues as the buggy "Insects & Spiders" and feather brained "Birds". Fixing this problem is the yeast that NatureShare can do, but they again fail to rise to the occasion. I am not a stalker and don't want to get anyone in truffle, but this is just so sad.

I do not think that this app is a pile of shiitake, as many of the photos are good (but most only have one view per species) and it lacks the range maps that are so tasty in "Birds".

At the full retail price of $4.99, this is not going to make someone s'pore, that they can't feed their family, but in the app world, that is a lot of Mycelium.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dumb app with potential in search of smart programmer. October 9, 2012
I have a Motorola Droid X. I am new to both the phone and this app, so some of my issues will likely be resolved as I learn more about both phone and app.

In common with the other mushroom guides for droid, the Audubon app is opaque. Is there a user's guide somewhere? Why is there no way to BROWSE by letters in the name? It is simply stupid to expect the user to scroll through 570 species to find the one at the end of the list. You have to use advanced search to browse by name intelligently, and it doesn't say you don't need complete names - you have to discover that.

Sometimes a message comes up telling you that you need to be connected to the internet to see photos, and suggesting that you sync your phone. To find out how to do that, it tells you to look in the Help in the More section. Unfortunately, it doesn't tell you just how to find More. (I looked at the website and learned the answer, but why not put it on the phone?)

"Advanced Search" Just how advanced is a search function that finds 344 species when one searches for white mushroons, a great many of which are certainly not white? The 344 "white" species have one or more of the following white characteristics: cap, gills, stalk, spore print. Ye gods, how helpful is that?

Finally - for the moment at least - it would be nice a way to move backwards AND forwards quickly. While the Droid X seems to have only a reverse gear, the app should have both.

Nice photos and informative text, but not nearly as useful as it could and should be!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Audibon Series is Ok but Not Spectacular June 20, 2014
Verified Purchase
The Audibon series does feature some search and navigation tools that far exceed anything else that I have tried. Most other nature apps have plenty of great photos, but the search features require you to have knowledge about what you are searching for. Audibon is a little easier in that regard. Audibon series does not have a remarkable journal feature, but its ok, and its pics are OK, but not overwhelming.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mushrooms May 17, 2014
Verified Purchase
Audubon field Guides are always a 5 star win. Mushrooms contains info about how to find them, how to cook them, which ones are edible and other facts. The pictures are excellent for identifying each individual mushroom. There are also species names and general info about mushrooms.
