Excellent Excellent range of fungi. Best content of all the fung ID guides I have tried.

User unfriendly Doesn't allow searches of synonyms I can't get it to work often

Disappointing The images in this can be enlarged but in my version they first appear as such tiny thumbnails that it is almost impossible to tell if it looks like what you are looking for. The result is that I end up having to enlarge dozens of photos trying to find what I am looking for. Also every time I do enlarge an image I get a message telling me of an easier way to enlarge which simply does not work. On the plus side there are at least many many fungi though perhaps chosen more for America.

It really needs a zoom function, the text is only just readable with my glasses on.

Awesome app, room for improvement I've found the app v. useful as a way to check details on mushrooms in the field. It would be useful for the user to be able to write personal notes on each species entry as additional info where info is lacking and a place to note relavent links. The synonym search function can be frustrating; frequently latin synonyms aren't all included so I come to a dead end. It might be useful to be able get results when searching for a mushroom which you only know the species name but not genus. Great app, thanks!
