The Mushroom Book app review: your guide to mushrooms


The Mushroom Book

Price: Free

The Mushroom Book by Dominik Warszewski is meant to be your one-stop mushroom guide. In case you didn't realize when it comes to mushrooms there is a massive amount of varieties all of which look, taste, and react differently. This app is meant to give you information on all the different types so that all your questions are answered.

Instead of searching around online for answers, use this app to find all the information you'll ever need. The user interface was designed to be simple and quick to use so that you can find the exact specimen you're looking for. What's great is that all the information you'll find within the app has been verified by mycologists. The mycologists even suggested what pictures should be used based on what people will typically find and have questions about.

This app is great for determining which mushrooms are protected by the law and can't be picked, and which ones are safe to eat. Even if you fancy yourself somewhat of a mushroom expert you’ll still find new and interesting information here.

The Mushroom Book was released on June 6, 2013 and currently has no customer ratings at the time of publishing.

Although it bills itself as a one-stop shop for mushroom information I didn't find the information particularly easy to find on specific ones. As well the information is not all free.
