One of the best apps about mushrooms in the AppStore, now available in free version, with a limited database, but with all the functionality of the full version.

You’re in the woods… looking for mushrooms or just on a walk. You know your porcini, chanterelle, parasol mushrooms, ok, but all the other species you may find? What are they called? What do they look like? Are they edible?

iFunch helps you with a fast identification system based on morphological and color features. You’ll be able to immediately recognize the mushrooms you find on your walk using a procedure that simplifies their identification and minimizes the possibility of error.

You can browse the 60 selected species wherever you are, viewing the photos, illustrated tables and detailed information providing more accurate identification and fun facts. You can even find single mushrooms by their names.

The mushroom photos were taken by fans throughout the world.

Application features:

- selection of 60 mushroom species (among the 424 of the complete database)
- 123 photos
- 45 illustrated tables
- glossary of mycological terms (with pictures)
- multiple-choiche quiz to test your mycologic knowledge

the following is listed for each mushroom:
- the scientific name, any synonyms and common names
- edibility
- sporocarp shape and color
- habitat and seasons when found
- fun facts and notes

you can search by:
- morphology and color, with a wizard

The database is integrated in the application and can be browsed without connecting to the Network and at no extra cost.

Warning: Mushroom identification and edibility should be determined by expert and certified mycologists or competent health control centers. Incorrect or incomplete information could cause serious injury including intoxication or deadly poisoning.
