Wild Edibles Forage Reviews
Good information but small bug
Has good information on wild edibles and how to prepare them as well as information on poisonous plants but for some reason I can't get all of the images to be downloaded. I reset the download fully and other times just rezip it but I can't get all of the photos. It's never the same photos either. Only around 6 or so though so it's not too bad.

This app used to be one of my favorite apps but recently it has stopped being updated and no longer works on the new versions of iOS.
I downloaded this in the fall and had a great time looking for edible plants in my hood. I can't wait to go out looking again in each season. The plant photos are really helpful in ID'ing things, and I love that you can search by region (helpful when I travel). Fantastic app!
Crashes anytime I try to get new plants or photo's. Poor design needs to be more like identification key format. 😑😐 I should have learned my lesson any app that I have paid for has been a flop. 🙄😣
After one month and a promiss to fix it. It's still broken. I have the feeling I got took. Kind of like someone just scammed me. Oh wait, they did.
Still doesn't work, and no action to correct the error. What a waste of money.
Update: as of this date, this app does not work. I contacted the seller and it seems they don't care. It won't load on my iPad Pro, iPad Air or iPhone properly. Be warned. If it's the sep 2016 update it probably won't work. I don't see them fixing it. If they do I will update the review.
I bought this based on the one review. This app gives an error message over and over saying the domain is not valid when it try's to download the database. Nothing works without this.
I tried to get it to download for an entire day, even uninstalled the app and reinstalled it several times. The app does have a "reload" the database option in case of error. Like this may be common.
As of now it's just a waste of money. I will be requesting a refund. I tried to contact the seller with no luck..
App is broken.

Steve Brill is an incredible guy and forager. This application is a great way to learn to identify plants in an area and use them to make recipes, psych out friends, and just enjoying nature.
Don't forget to take a tour, it's a great a"experience. He is hilarious!
Best App to Use out in the Wild
The app is so informative, easy to use and really packs tons of usable knowledge! I use it on all my hikes, camping and anytime I even sit in a park. You will be surprised to discover plants you usually paid no attention to! Steve Brill is the best teacher and definitely the best person to take advice from on all things nature. Get this APP! Take his Foraging classes! One of the best hobbies I ever picked up :)
This app is great for identifying local plants for forage and keeps getting better! Wildman is also a great guide in person!! I recommend this app to everyone!
The only resource you need
“Wildman” Steve Brill has created a foraging app for both the serious and weekend forager. He is the author of many books on foraging and has been giving foraging tours since the 1980s. His books are incredible in its detail and information, but really hard to carry around during foraging hikes. This app has all that information at our fingertips. His focus on details is evident in all his drawings. The app stands out by giving us the tools we need to identify all parts of the plant and in every season. He describes each plant, uses and medicinal values, harvesting instructions and even recipes. He is careful to advise us of any possible poisonous look-alikes. I think this is the best foraging app on the market.
The free app to this is better than the paid ver. The menu system is missing, information is harder to find, and no south east filter.
A must have!!!!!
If you are at all interested in foraging you need to download this app! Written by the foremost authority on all things wild and edible!!
