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!

Good Basic App Great to have an app on the phone. Roger is a good source for identifying mushrooms in the field. No substitute for a field guide (yet). Needs more tolerance in matches (using known species i have to sometimes "tinker" with the characteristics in order to get correct ID). Perhaps a "see also" list? Biggest complaint: edible should be its own heading and not be buried in the description.

No decent searching possible You can't search on scientific names only on 'symonyms'! That just doesn't make sense!
