The Mushroom Book

Have you ever wished you had a mushroom book after noticing a mushroom?
From now, everything you need will be right in your pocket, on your iPhone, iPod Touch or even iPad. You will have all the information about mushroom offline (no web connection necessary!).

The app allows you to search a mushroom by the name or characteristics which can be very helpful to identify exact species.
  • Brief descriptions of 84 most common edible, inedible and poisonous mushrooms.
  • No Internet connection needed.
  • Very friendly user interface.
  • Available in English, German and Polish.
  • You can get it for free from the AppStore and Google Play.

Background
The Mushroom Book was launched in June of 2013 with the goal of providing a useful tool on which people can rely on. Many people accidently picks species which are inedible for humans or are protected by law making a big damage to the environment. This app was designed to prevent this kind of situations.

The decision of building an app first occured when we noticed that there is a lack of good apps for mushroom hunting. The mentioned apps were simply ugly, the descriptions were very poor and contained serious mistakes which could be fatal.

After launching, The Mushroom Book quickly became the 7th most downloaded app in Poland.
