If you’ve ever been on a countryside jaunt and fancied a bit of light foraging only aren’t so keen on the death that may follow if you make a bad decision, then this app is for you. It lists hundreds of mushroom types, featuring a clear photo of each alongside seasonality, likely spots to find it, a comprehensive description and all the classification details you could ever desire. It even links each one to its relevant Wikipedia page, though we’re not sure we’d like to put our lives in the hands of user generated content. Those mushrooms that have the potential to look like others which are poisonous are clearly labelled, so there is an emphasis on safety, but the info page’s inevitable warning that, “the developers are not responsible for any sickness or problem due to the consumption of any mushroom” is still a little off-putting. Especially when the ‘problem’ being referred to is generally instant suffocation and seizure.
