  • Genius! Be patient. It’s up and coming

    If you have trouble getting the installed app to actually open and function and it shows you some sort of email containing lots of code instead, from that screen, tap your home button only once in order to return to your home screen WITHOUT fully closing the app by swiping up. Click on the app icon again, and it should take you directly to all of the great pics and info as promised :) If that does not work, let the app sit open for a while (start with about 20 minutes), and then repeat the steps above. New version (update) is said to be coming out in the spring if not sooner. This app is very useful as it currently stands, even while under construction. It beats carrying a book around anyway ha! Enjoy!
  • Won’t download. Save your money

    By Addicted to this game!?
  • iPad

    By rolobio2
    Will not open on iPad. Crashes and requests to send an email to the developer, then goes no further.
  • Doesn’t work on IOS 12. Appears abandoned.

    By Markg739
    It won’t even start.
  • Huge error log email every time

    By KellikelRN
    Cannot get the email to send or delete, images won’t load ... battle just to get the app to open and then no images ... wasted $6 and no support so far despite multiple outreaches including screenshots.
  • Great potential, poor follow through

    By Discipleforlife
    Love the idea. Love the initial launch. Disappointed in the utter lack of follow through with additional plants and info, and the issues that many have already mentioned never being addressed. Hopeful these issues will be addressed, because I paid for something I’m not getting. With a newer phone, the images don’t even download anymore. Not a single image.
  • App won’t open- database won’t load, no response from developer

    By LuneDeJune
    I downloaded this app 2 months ago and have not been able to get it to load. Multiple error logs sent to app developers as well as a personal email have received no response. I would like my money back but can’t get in touch with anyone. As far as I’m concerned this was blatant theft of my $5.99. Poor.
  • So much potential

    I was so excited to see this app and more than happy to shell out the 6 bucks. However, the app is glitchy and freezes at the drop of a pin. I can’t download the images so all I can see is the tiny banner photo, but nothing enlarged. I’m really disappointed and feel like I wasted my money. Improve the app or get rid of it.
  • Beta quality, abandoned?

    By iCrapMyPlants
    I paid for the full App. While the intent may be good, the App was poorly programmed. Many bugs, the pictures stopped loading and photo downloads has stopped working, and no updates for over a year. I’d say that this App has been abandoned. It certainly never lived up to my expectations. After contacting support I was told that the outsourced programmer is holding the code hostage, and I suspect that they will have to start over. Stick with his books for now.
  • Critics Are Misguided

    By Huckleberry Addict
    The critical notes about the technology really miss the absolute wealth of information here that guides the amateur and expert foragers. All of the images and more information that you could hope for all at your mobile fingertips while you’re out and about on your foraging adventure. Unimaginable just a few years ago, and unparalleled in breadth of information, this app is a vital resource to keep in your pocket on your next woodland hunt.
