- WildEdibles, by "Wildman" Steve Brill

Going foraging? Whether you will be setting out to cautiously explore your own lawn or lead your 100th field trip into the wilderness, WildEdibles, by "Wildman" Steve Brill, is a terrific take-along resource. Novice foragers will find its clear photos and detailed plant descriptions a real confidence-builder; experienced wild foodies may discover tasty edibles they have yet to sample; and those of us who teach can suddenly acquire the ability to show students close-ups of the plant before us in flower, fruit, or in its autumn glory. As with any app or book, it's wise to cross-check safety information with another reliable resource (such as the Peterson Guides to Edible Wild Plants and Wild Medicinal Plants.) With that understood, wherever you stand on the foraging path, have no doubt that Wildman's wonderful app will enhance and enrich your experience. As a lifelong forager and teacher of wild ways for 30+ years, I highly recommend it. --Terry-Anya Hayes, writer, herbalist, wild foods educator

- Love the new look!

I purchased the app a while back before the update. There was a lot of great information, but it was a little buggy. The new version seems to work much better and looks great! Definitely was worth waiting for. Would recommend this app to anyone with an interest in foraging our culinary uses of wild edibles.

- It’s back and again my go-to source for wild edibles!

This app has been my trusted go-to for 10 years! With Apple updates breaking past versions, it now works seemingly and is rock solid and full of valuable info , i.e., identification, harvesting guidance, recipes... I highly recommend this app for beginners and advanced foragers. Happy hunting. :-)

- Amazing App

The app was recently updated and I love it. It’s so easy to use and a recipe feature was added...hundreds of delicious wild food recipes. I recommend this app for beginners as well as advance foragers. Happy foraging!!!

- Update doesn’t work

I’ve enjoyed this app for sometime but since the recent update it just doesn’t work. Disappointing.

- Not working!

This update did nothing but make the app worse! Doesn’t work AT ALL!!

- Wild Edibles Full

Wildman Steve Brill has done an incredible job with this excellent app bringing years of research and personal experience into the palm of your hand for only $8. Steve is an extremely well respected expert on foraging and I would highly recommend you check out his website and books, I've been a keen forager for years in the UK and having moved to the US have been on a number of foraging courses over here. All the experts always recommend Steve's texts because he really knows his stuff. It's not just a hobby for him, it's a lifestyle, and he wont send you wrong. I've been out with the guy in the field and I can assure you he's the real deal. It's a great app for the expert and beginner alike with a great introductory section on foraging if you are new to it. Ignore the negative reviews, they have really done Steve an injustice as the app doesn't crash, it's not a mushroom foraging app and it never claimed to be, and if you think the pictures are bad you need glasses. As for the edibility of epazote- Steve clearly states it's poisonous in large quantities but fine as a seasoning, the negative reviewer simply didn't read the text properly. Well done Wildman and thank you for producing this excellent guide!

- Superb foraging app

WildEdibles is truly an outstanding resource for anyone interested in identifying and using wild foods that grow in Northeastern North America. The app is impressively comprehensive. It packs in a lot of helpful information on plants and foraging generally, as well as provides a very useful glossary. The meat of the app is found in the very detailed description of each of the wild plants/foods: for each entry one can learn a plethora of information, ranging from the optimal growing seasons and habitat, how to identify the wild food, what it can be used for nutritionally and medicinally, and there are even great recipes for most entries. Extremely valuable are the descriptions of how to positively identify the plant/food, as well as the important descriptions of what confusing factors might be, and what similar plants look like. The numerous photographs of each plant/food are very clear and helpful for making a positive identification. What I love is how organized the app is. I would recommend this app to any novice or experienced forager - it is a super aid to have out in the field, as well as at home in your kitchen. Buy this -- it's a super deal!

- Best one out there

You are not going to find a more reliable person when it comes to helping identify wild edibles. Steve Brill is not just someone making apps -- he has been out in the field, teaching kids and adults hands-on for 30 years. You can rest assured that the information within this app is the most accurate you will find because Steve's experience is unparalleled. Plus, he's out there every day, doing what he loves, refining and expanding on his already vast knowledge. This app is chock-full of information, from the pictures to the drawings to the multiple identification options. No need to waste your time trying out other apps -- this is the one to own. *** Just adding on to my previous review here, but this app has only gotten better over the years and it is still the one to own. You would be hard-pressed to find someone with more knowledge out there than the Wildman. He lives and breathes this stuff. As he might say, using this app will make you die…of happiness! ***

- Better in some ways, worse in others

This is still a great app, considering the information you get with each plant and the hi res photos of different species at different seasons, growth stages, roots, etc. It has become glitchy though with the latest updates. The biggest one that gets to me is when you click the warning symbol to see what could be dangerous or maybe a poisonous lookalike, it shows the warning and there is no way to get out of that warning screen. You have to force kill the app and open it back up again, starting over from the beginning. This is annoying, but it’s still the best thing I have come across in either an app or physical book. There are other books on ethnobotany that are more extensive in species (I think one is even mentioned inside the app somewhere), but those books don’t have near the amount of usable information or various photos as this app does. I’m still very happy with this app and hope it never becomes unusable due to iOS updates without app updates. I just hope the little bugs are fixed sometime.

- Very user friendly and handy.

I started with the light version and was pleased and now full and very pleased. Steve Brill is very knowledgeable about foraging and best that he is always accessible. Whenever you have a concern or question he is there for you and will do whatever it takes to find an answer for you. This app was made from experience and passion. It contains multiple photos and accurate drawings, and written information to safely guide through your forage experience. Even if not a forager this app would be informative for someone who appreciates nature. The recipes are plentiful and though I'm not a vegan or vegetarian it adds to variety of more healthful and unique foods that you can't find in any store yet are right under your nose and feet. I sense Wild Edibles will still grow like the weeds so I look forward to its progress. Hope to see more plants soon Thanks Steve!

- Lots of info, but could use more organization.

I live on the east coast of Florida, north of Jupiter. I try to look up edible plants in my area and can't seem to narrow it down to my region. There is no database for the southeastern area of the US. I am nervous about trying the plants here, except obvious ones like clover and dandelion, because it is hard to find ways to match them to this database and then to my region. What would be good is to avoid the plant pages to what states they are seen in, and perhaps their characteristics so people can search by adding tags that match up. For example "Florida, spiky leaves, hairy stems, dark red berries", which would return any results featuring those tags, while filtering out the rest. For the money paid to own this app, which is great by all other standards except filtering, it would really increase its value immensely, especially in the field. For goodness sake, after all this time, please send someone to the south east to study the plants here and add them to your database.

- Warning - do not initialize unless you are on wifi

I didn't open the app until I was on my way to the park for a walk this morning. I then did the normal "agree" to location services, and waiver, then had to go. I ended up leaving my iPad in the car during the hour walk. When I came back, I saw I had 3 notices from my data plan. Now two days ago, I'd just purchased the 3G/$25/3month add on to the 10% I had left of the previous 3G. This usually lasts me quite a while (6-8 wks) without LTE being turned on. I was quite surprised to see 3 notices popping up to me about data volume exhaust. 9:36am - 20% data warning 9:44am - 10% data warning 9:53am - 2% data warning There are 266 high def pictures which need to be downloaded. I paid $8 for the app and I just finished paying another $25 for these surprise pictures I had no idea existed. Sheesh!! I guess my bad, but I thought the app was already downloaded at home. And absolutely a warning while I wasn't on a wifi network about this data volume would have been nice. I don't really know how to rate the app itself. I haven't used it yet. This has just got me really annoyed at this point. Even on my wifi- the downloads just finished now, 2:17pm. The app will consume 2.5G of memory. So, this is a pretty hefty program. I'm sure it'll be beautiful. I'll come back & up my stars if it's fun to play with but right now, I'm just irritated.

- A "Must Have" Foraging App

I purchased this app in late summer 2011, so I am fairly new to foraging and have found this app extremely useful. The photos and illustrations are great and the detailed information is even better. The app is brilliantly designed as it breaks down the large amount of information Steve has on each plant into very clear and easy to understand sections. Being new to foraging, I am extremely cautious and triple check every feature. Having information like "Positive Identification", "Confusing Factors", "Cautions", "Poisonous Lookalikes", etc ... has been invaluable in making sure I have the correct plant. As with all of Steves content it is entertaining and easy to read. I love the personal take and not just dry facts. I highly recommend this application to anyone who is getting into foraging. You wont be sorry.

- Wild Edibles-Steve Brill

This app is fantastic. I have Steve's books and this app is the perfect compliment. I sometimes gets confused on some of the greens but these pictures make me feel so much more confident that I am selecting the right plant. I actually used this app on my daugther's Itouch on a sunny day and the pictures were phenomenal! I thought that I would need an Ipad but realized I don't need to go that far. Using it on the Itouch was easy and so clear especially when walking. It is so comprehensive. I have a Masters in Nutrition and am amazed at Steve's knowledge of science--he has taught me a few things. I love the folklore and recipes. And if you haven't been on his walks, I have to tell you that they are so much fun. I have been on a few as there is so much to learn and plan to go on more. Every school teacher should make learning this fun and easy.

- Your friends will start calling you a hippie.

I can't walk down a sidewalk without checking the cracks for lambs quarters, or seeing which trees have edible parts. Which makes this app handy for all the other flora I might miss. The app is second rate to actually taking a tour with "Wildman" Steve (which I highly recommend), but in a pinch, you'll get a lot of useful information with great photos and identification. My only complaint is sometimes it's tough to get the arrow buttons to scroll. Maybe I just have fat fingers from eating so many wild edibles?

- Best foraging app on iTunes

I teach a natural history course that includes a foraging section in the curriculum. There are a lot of good foraging/wild edibles books out there, none of which a teenager is going to read or carry around in their pocket. The ideal solution to that problem would be an app for their phones that is comprehensive, easy to navigate and use, and has great photos. This app has all of that!! I have tried all and I mean all of the other edibles/medicinal herbs apps on iTunes and this one has all of them beaten by a mile! Well worth the purchase. The one and only thing that would make it better is adding a favorites button so you could add certain plants to a favorites list that you either like, encounter a lot, or would like to be on the lookout for while foraging.

- Great foraging app!!!

The information is laid out clearly in easy to navigate sections, there are several pictures of each entry with captions to help you identify each plant, there is even information on harvesting and cooking. This is better than any field guide I've read, and much more portable. It's almost like taking your own expert out in the field with you. Well worth the money, it will more than pay for it self with what you'll save in groceries! Wildman Steve brill is also very active on Facebook and more than willing to answer any questions I've had. The latest update has made it easier to navigate and more comprehensive. I've been using it for almost 2 years and I'm still thrilled with it and use it all the time.

- 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.

- Wild Edibles

This app from the famous (or infamous, if you are a NYC Central Park official) Steve Brill is my favorite app ever! Incredibly comprehensive and easy to use, with clear and detailed photos for precise identification. It is a field guide, a cook book, and everything in between. So much information that even an experienced forager will find wonderfully juicy tidbits. (Like Brill's commentary that hairy bittercress is neither bitter nor hairy, enabling me to put a name to the unknown brassica that I've been eating enthusiastically for years!) The quality of his information and research is impeccable, and the tone is relaxed and friendly, (Brill being famous/infamous, depending on your perspective, for his jokes as well.) If you have a passing interest in wild edibles, or a full-blooded obsession, get this app!

- Excellent App!

I have been on several foraging tours with Steve Brill over the past few years and he is someone whom I trust to provide detailed, accurate, safe and easy to understand information on edible plants. While there is no substitute for learning hands on from an experienced forager, this app is simple enough be great for the beginner as well as to serve as a field guide for the veteran forager. After either lugging Brill’s book around with me or often wishing I had it with me at times I did not, I am exited to now always have this handy field guide in my pocket ready to use whenever I may encounter some wild edibles. This app also pays for itself in saved grocery bills after your first time out using it to help you forage!

- Wild about Wildman Steve Brill's App

The thing I love about his book I own is the absolute wealth of information and wide scope of plants it covers. The things I didn't like was the book was too large to be conveniently toted around in the woods to help me ID on site and it lacked color photos. His app has remedied those issues wonderfully for me! Now I can carry all his wonderful plant knowledge with me out into the field taking up no more space than my pocket! And with all the beautiful color pictures to boot! I'm just starting to use this app, but it's already apparent to me that my money was well spent and that the app is a true travel-ready treasure trove of wild foraging knowledge! Thanks for a great App Wildman Steve Brill!

- A fabulous field guide for foraging in your pocket

I love this app, it's worth every penny! The plants listing is huge and growing. I love that you can search by region and season! There is a tone of pics, info and listings and warnings about poisonous look-alike species. It ALSO lets you add your own field notes. You can add pics, notes and location markers to keep track of plant locations. If you are lucky enough, take a walking tour with Wildman Steve Brill. He's not only a wonderful teacher but also a real NY character! His entertaining tours are full of history, myths, culinary & medicinal uses, and family friendly cornball humor. It's a guaranteed good time!

- Food Freedom

Wild edible forage helps free me from buying, planting, fertilizing, watering, and weeding much of my food. If people ever catch on to this they will look back in wonderment that they nearly poisoned themselves to death using chemicals to grow inedible landscapes and genetically modified organisms- and furthered the problem with toxic fossil fuels for packaging and transporting them. If we are to survive as a species we absolutely need to create and share with all good creatures a diverse perennial food forest, from coastline to coastline, continent to continent. When that happens we will all be a long way toward being truly free. I praise Steve Brill for his contributions. Sylvia Williams RNBA Wood Fawn Community Food Forest

- Can I be Refunded?!?!?!

If I could give this app zero stars I would. After paying for the app, I can’t even use it. I try to open it, and the content has some error downloading and an email screen pops up to send an error email to support. I try to press the send button, but it won’t even let me do that!! And when I try to press cancel on the email tab, it won’t let me!! I have to force close the app to get out of the screen. So not only can I not access the app AT ALL, but I can’t even send a support email!! What a WASTE of money. This is the first ever app review I’ve actually written because I am just livid for throwing money in the garbage for this buggy app. I pray someone on your tech team reads this and issues me a refund if they can’t at least fix this. Straight up practically stole my money.

- Very useful & informative, best foraging app available

I have referenced this app nearly every day at some point since I got it. Great pictures, descriptions and even recipies are provided with each wild edible in the library. Even when I am just looking for a specific plant, I like to thumb through the whole list first to try to glean some new knowledge each time. A lot of time and care went into the creation of this app. I have other apps on the subject that are horribly organized, only have one picture per plant, and possibly the worst... have erroneous information.

- Bought the app, now I have to pay extra for upgrades?

I bought the app and felt it was a very useful resource. I appreciated the note in General Info about the Future of the App that indicated that the author would support the future of the app by offering free updates with more information, so you can imagine my surprise when Steve charges us $1 to add two new plants plus 500 recipes. TBH, I didn't buy the app for Steve Brill's recipes. I bought the app for his knowledge on identifying wild edible plants, and to charge $1 to update the app with two new plants after claiming to support the future of the app with free updates seems disingenuous. I was considering purchasing the $10 iPad version but I would anticipate more of the same half-truths.

- Very very informative

My daughters class just had a field trip with Wildman Steve Brill that I was fortunate enough to chaperone. He is an incredible fountain of knowledge. When I got home I downloaded this app and began picking through it. It is endless! Full of all the information and answers to things I've always wondered while wandering through the woods. From historical native medicinal uses to very tasty recipes this app is one for the ages. I can't wait to go into the woods this weekend to gather garlic mustard and onion grass for a fantastic spring pesto! Highly recommend this app!

- I won't leave home without it!

This is a must-have for anyone interested in exploring the outdoors. Filled with not only culinary uses of plants, but also the medicinal uses. Easy to use, great pictures throughout, and much more. Growing up, we always had a copy of reference books for the household (plants, birds, home remedies) and now this is a go-to reference "book" for everyone in my home. Highly recommended, especially if you have children -- they will love exploring the outdoors and being a helper with this handheld reference app.

- A great source of info!

I started with the light version to check it out, make sure that I liked it, before buying the full app. No regrets! It is a great app with plenty of photos, descriptions, possible plant look alikes, regional and seasonal info, harvesting, food and medicinal uses, and even some recipes! Wild man also throws in some humor and personal experience, which keeps it from being dull. I would recommend this app for anyone who is interested in foraging and plant identification and uses. An all around great app! Check it out.

- Mostly works on iOS 13

App mostly works with an iPhone 11 Pro and iOS 13. When you launch the app you get an error and an email pops up to send an error log to the developers. Hitting send or cancel on the email doesn’t work. BUT if you just leave the app open for a minute or two the email goes away and the app works, and most of the images even download successfully. (You probably need to be connected to WiFi the first time you open the app to get all the images.) Basically just ignore the error and be patient, the app still mostly works, albeit badly needs a bug fix update.

- It's ok, but..

What I really wanted this for was adding pictures to geographic locations, so I could look up what plants I found and where I found them. I just wanted to be able to add a pin with a note and picture attached. It seems I can only add a note when I'm in a plant entry. I like the idea of being able to look something up, yes I too use my phone, there's not a lot of plants from my western, scrub-oak environment on the ap anyway. It's already too big, though. I had to delete a ton of stuff (I have 16gb) just to get the ap to finish. I just don't think you can fit enough on there to be able to do that offline.

- Right from the Source

I bought this app from Steve the Wildman Brill for one reason; it was created from first hand knowledge and he is accessible to meet and talk to. He offers first hand accounts of all the plants he speaks of. I am using this on a 4th gen ipod touch. I like the categories that each plant entry offers (uses, recipes, warnings) and the ability to take your own notes. There also seems to be good vision for future enhancements. My kids and I are already out gathering and cooking great stuff!

- Update problems

I’ve been using this app since it first came out and have always enjoyed it. This current update sounded promising until I found out the app used up the rest of my drive space and it showed as 3.75 GB usage for the app. Yikes! Also it is extremely slow and glitchy on a 4S. Trying to view image resulted in images loading slowly in chunks (and that was with my very high speed wifi connection.) I can’t imagine trying to view an image in the field. Unfortunately I had to delete the app because it is pretty much unusable for me now. It will be easier to carry Samuel Thayer’s foraging books with me in the field than try to use this new version. I do hope they resolve this problem soon.

- Master Herbalist

Shortly after graduating from the School of Natural Healing as a Master Herbalist, my desire to explore all of nature's green treasures grew. Although skilled in utilizing medicinal plants, it became increasingly clear to me of the necessity of tackling the vast, somewhat frightening subject of wild edibles. Fortunately, with "Wildman" Steve Brill's new, and easy to follow app, my journey had become much easier than expected. Whether a die hard plant enthusiast or just a curious onlooker, you'll be amazed by the information this remarkable man has garnered over the past several decades.

- Great job on this app

This app goes into great detail about many facts about the harvest, truly interesting. Each plant has recipes to medicinal purposes if applicable. I like the color pictures, I like the part where you put the type of environment you are in help you identify if you are not sure. ( I do have this on my iPhone too) The comparisons between different look alikes is important. In fairness I must say I bought his book first, but wanted something even more handy..

- Thorough, very useful, even if slightly buggy

There are a few foraging apps in the store, but from an informational standpoint, this is among the best. The descriptions of the plants and trees are thorough, the hand drawn and actual photos are wonderful, and the info on preparing, using and/or consuming the foraged material is excellent. It also has a place to make and keep notes. 4/5 only because it’s slightly buggy, but money well spent. Highly recommend.

- The best resource for wild edibles!

This app is definitely worth the cost! With so many pictures to help you identify plants, it's better than a guidebook when out in the wild. Steve Brill is extremely knowledgable, I would consider him a top expert in the field of wild edibles, and also in a way, a pioneer in this field. He provides so much information on each plant, with recipes and ways of preparing and eating them. I look forward to learning about more plants in the future!

- A Great Reference for the Field

This app is a very handy guide to have if you are getting into foraging. Mobile yet detailed, it has a lot of great features that will help you learn and record your findings. I have had little trouble so far with the minor bugs mentioned. I am looking forward to social media being added so users can share info. If you get an opportunity to join one of "Wildman" Brill's foraging walks, for goodness sakes, don't miss it! It is a great experience.

- Critics Are Misguided

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.

- Expert, accurate, user friendly, foraging guide

This is a Wildman Steve foraging tour in the palm of your hand! Tons of photos and very detailed descriptions for each wild plant make it easy to identify them and learn their nutritional and medicinal benefits. Lots of yummy wild food recipes too! This app is the next best thing to joining Wildman for one of his live Foraging Tours, but don't stop with the app. Treat yourself to a very affordable invaluable live tour. You will laugh, and learn sooo much while enjoying an afternoon in the great outdoors.

- Great, trustworthy, useful information!

More than 30 years ago, I used to go on ‘weed walks’ in New York Central Park and Brooklyn Prospect Park, led by Wildman Steve Brill. I haven’t lived in NYC for 15 years and I’ve often wished I could get him to do another ‘weed walk’ where I live now. I am so pleased with this app! You tell it what region and season you’re in and it tells you what’s growing. You can also search for a plant by name. There are recipes and also the humorous asides I fondly remember.

- Wild Man Steve Brill is the man!

As a chef, I absolutely love the Wild Edibles App. I'm a beginning forager and this mobile app allows me to identify wild plants w/ photos + supporting background information. I am thankful for the awareness of toxic plants and what not to harvest. Wild Edible is incredibly easy to use, it allows you to base your foraging off of the season + region you are in as well as what you are looking for seeds, weeds, fruits + etc. Thanks Steve for creating such a wonderful foraging app! This is #1. Chef KPE

- Are great reviews here by Brill’s friends ?!

This app has more bugs than a stagnant pond and despite reviews stating the existence of wonderful photos, none are downloaded that my iPhone X could access and the last time I could actually use the app(3 years ago) Brill lauded the usefulness of his black and white drawings. I do not share his enthusiasm. While I grew up on Peterson’s guides, which are indeed drawings, the inclusion of color was essential, as was a very accurate and life-like rendering, which Brills drawing skills are not alas up to. Not worth the money ! I threw out this app a week after I paid for it and re-downloading it again has not shown it to have improved an iota.

- Great Resource

Starting my voyage into learning more about wild edible foods and I've really been enjoying this app...it's laid out nice for an easy interface with clear pictures that help to identify different edible plants....it gets into harvesting, medicinal uses, the nutritional constituents, recipes, and more!......that's a lot of bang for the buck...plus I like supporting people who are on a mission to educate others with healthy and useful information...cheers! Get this App !

- Awesome app!

As a botanist, herbalist, and forager, I can highly recommend this app. It's not meant as a field guide, but works great, once you know what the plant is, to teach you what to do with it. I like that it offers cautions, explains which plant parts are poisonous, and offers great recipes. Also the option to pick a season to filter your browsing is great so you know what to look for when. This app is loaded with information! Well worth it!

- Great Update!

Not sure what the other reviewers have been talking about, this runs fine and looks beautiful on my iphone4. Love the interface upgrade. Love the new plants. And Steve’s info is solid. OK so there are a couple crashes but there’ve been several updates in the last month so it seems like the developers are on it. Totally worth what I paid for it I take this on all my walks.

- Dr of Chiropractic

Good start but needs a table of contents an/or a alphabet bar down the right side a little hard to find a plant. Also when u open say general info you have to go out or back to view the next section habitat or season. I would rather be able to scroll down thru all the sections and enter at any point ie. Medicinal etc. Only 3 poisonous plants! Need to put more in like Jimson weed/datura or foxglove. Foxglove/digitalis can easily be mistaken for comfrey/symphtum officinale. Thanks for the app look forward to upgrades an more plants

- 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 :)

- Awesome

This app is amazing but there are a few issues. One is that in the search bar, if you type in 4 letters or more and search it, it crashes. But other than that there aren't any things that make it crash that I know of. Recommend for app designers: if you could have more details for the poisonous plants, like where it can be found or symptoms if you eat or touch it, etc. That would be great. Thanks😄

- Wasn't worth the $

I purchased the app and wish I didn't waste my money now. The search tab just freezes the app and to find something you have to select a region. My region isn't on the list. It says West Coast or South West but they are not inland BC.

- Excellent Tool For Outdoor Enthusiasts!

This is an excellent app with lots of useful information for anyone that spends time outdoors! Very nice layout with an excellent search function. Mainly based on wild edibles in the East but many of the same grow on the western coast as well. Money well spent! Thanks!!

- Bad App

This App sucks. Cannot do anything with it. Should be totally refunded by AppStore.

- Classy Job with a sense of humour

Great app! I use it often. Educational and reliable. More northern (north of 50) plants would be great but there's enough here to get me started. This guy is a pro.

- Too bad...

Sadly, the app doesn’t work and crashes.

- Disappointed

This app is broken. It opens with an error report email which will not send, you must click cancel to get into the app. If I am even able to get into the app there is so much information missing. There is only one berry posted for the west coast and it’s a black berry. There are no photos available to help with identification. This app has high hopes but is very disappointing. I wish I could return this and get a refund

- Good detail, too much space

I love the design and the amount of information in the app, but the photos take up so much space! It takes about 2 GBs of room on your device. If an update comes in the future where you can selectively download plants based on your location, or some other solution to the space issue, then I’ll be happy to leave 5 stars.

- Excellent!

A lot a detail, easy to use. The only downside is that it had only info about plants in NY state(and around). Would be nice if expert people contribute for other regions in USA and Canada!

- Very impressed!

This app is 100% worth the money. It is easy to use, full of great information, and, of course, a superb way to identify local edible plants! :D

- Impressed

I had the lite version for awhile and was hesitant in purchasing this no reviews and expensive. After purchasing 2 other less expensive edible apps and being disappointed. I payed for this app and have never been more impressed with an app it is undersold in the description and the lite version does not compare to this full version.

- Learn and laugh!

Great app, packed with useful infos wrapped in a great sense of humour.

- 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.

- Pocket Size Wildman on The Go

I finally downloaded Wildman's new app, and SOO excited to try it out on the field to identify some edible plants. The pictures are fantastic and the content is very well organized into "food uses", "nutrition", "recipes" "cautions" and much more. I've gone on at least 5 Wildman adventures over the years and he did a great job translating his nature walks into this app, even his humor!

- Excellent Foraging App

This is a very detailed but easy to use app for both experienced and novice foragers. Especially useful are the options to filter searches for plants by criteria such as habitat and season, and the cautionary sections on poisonous lookalikes, etc. As always, Wildman Steve Brill's information on the identification and uses of the plants is accurate and based on extensive personal experience. Well done!

- Useful database

I use this app for all my foraging excursions in the northeast US. The setup is user friendly and you can filter results in various ways. It has helped me identify many plants, and also inspired new plants to search for. It even has recipes and recommended uses. I would recommend this app for anyone that wants an offline pocket database of wild edibles.

- Helps me forage on my own

I took a class with Steve Brill in central park a few weeks ago and afterwards bought the app. Since then, it’s helped me to confidently identify a handful of wild plants that I’ve brought home and cooked with. It’s also got great directions on how to prep and store and cook. Definitely worth the price, considering the potential to save on simple groceries like garlic, greens, tea, etc.

- Most useful app out there!

I use this app on an almost daily basis and it has helped me learn so much more about wild edibles! With the recipes included, this is almost the most perfect app out there. My only gripe would be the filter function doesn't seem to work very effectively. Other than that, this is the perfect app for anyone and everyone!

- Not as great as other reviewers said, but ok.

This app has several things going for it, the excellent color photos, warnings about poisonous lookalike plants, cross references. The thing that bugged me was the disclaimer popping up each time the app was opened. Once at time of purchase is ok, not each time the app is opened. Also, a little pricey. But still ok.

- Great App

Wildman Steve is the best. I learned more about foraging in 3 classes with him than in 2 years spent using guidebooks. The problem with books is that information is limited: descriptions, images, etc. Wildman's app seems specifically designed to avoid these flaws, with detailed descriptions of the most salient identifiers, awesome color pics, and Steve's articulate drawings. Worth it!!

- excellent addition to the field

This well-designed app is an engaging and practical tool for those interested in learning about useful (and some not so useful, even downright dangerous) plants. The information is well presented, with concise, interesting text (often spiced with Wildman humor), helpful photographs and even more helpful--and very handsome--drawings. It's fun to browse in as well.

- Fantastic

Wildman Steve Brill is "The Man" when it comes to foraging wild edibles and this app should be considered "The App" for anyone serious about learning in the field or on the couch. I've been gearing my iPhone more and more toward an outdoors tool and Steve's apps (I purchased this one and all the flashcard apps) are invaluable in positively identifying greens, nuts, roots, and fruits. There is so much information included in this app that I am continuing to dig and dig. The "Poisonous Lookalikes" is fantastic to prevent an "oops" in the field by identifying plants that may resemble the one you're looking at with pictures and descriptions (and a red skull and crossbones.) If you can't shove Steve in your pack, this app is a good alternative. :)

- An amazing foraging and recipe app

This is a beautifully designed app with an incredible amount of useful information and delicious recipes. It's worth every penny. The recent update of 500 recipes and additional info was a steal at 99cents. If you're looking for a foraging app, get this. If you're also interested in healthy, vegetarian/vegan cooking, this app is a godsend.

- Fantastic app!!

Went on a foraging tour with the Wildman and bought the app that same day. I love it!! High quality photos, super easy to navigate, and lots of reliable information. If you're going to learn, learn from an expert. And if you can, definitely take some of his foraging classes. There's no substitute for the real thing!!

- Wild Edibles

Super informative and easy to navigate . Multiple pictures and illustrations of each plant. All the info you need. How to spot, harvest,cook,etc. So much easier to pull out your cell phone than lug around a book or two and search through them dirty hands. I highly recommend this app!

- Life changing app to have fun in nature.

I am a city boy, I give tours of Central Park. I took one of Steve's tours then got his App. Worth every penny as I can now go out and harvest my own teas, berries, salads, for free, pretty much where ever I travel. This app teaches you to see and actually taste the world in a new way. Practical, great pictures and Drawings to help identify plants from a true master.

- Very bad experience

I bought the premium version, but it did not work for me. The pictures failed to download. The app seemed to originate an error report, but it was impossible to have it actually sent to the deliver. Moreover, I am not able to use the app at all because the error report blocks my access to all the other features. I think there is a lot of useful information and the app could be very helpful if it weren’t so buggy. I had to delete the application after paying $6 for it.

- Great app

I enjoy this app as a go to for identifying plants for multiple uses with Scouts. As always I do keep a hard copy reference guide in my gear as I believe in redundancy. Like with diving you never have just 1 when you go out for a dive trip, you always want a backup that doesn't rely on a battery.

- Seriously lacking many common edible plants in the western US

This app needs to be region specific. If you live in the Western US then this app is of limited value. It lacks basic western plants like camas, arrowleaf balsomroot and many others. There needs to be away to add new plants and multiple photos as well as add additional photos and information to existing entries. There needs to be maps that show the regions that each plant grows as that is way more useful then a written description.

- Must Have App

Excellent, thorough app. Downloaded the lite version first and could not resist getting the full version. Went on one of "wildman's" guided hikes and found this app extremely accurate. Definitely recommend you get this. Also highly recommend going on one of his tours if you can.

- Way to go!

Hey this is Sergei Boutenko, the author of another wild edible iphone app. I think these guys have done an awesome job with their app and our apps complement each other nicely! I would recommend this application because it pulls from the knowledge of Wild Man Steve Brill, whom I greatly respect! It's nice to have support in educating people about plants! Thanks for your work! Sergei

- Ok

The descriptions are good, however, the images that are used, many times, are not helpful. They are either too close up or too far away. The images do not show variation on what the plant can look like. Images seem like they're taken from stock photos without consideration the user. Overall, just too few images to be helpful in identifying plants accurately and assuredly.

- What I'd expect from Steve Brill

These apps are excellent. The pictures are clear and make identification easy. The descriptions are easily understandable. The scope of plants covered is excellent, although of course I hope with time more will be added! This is a great field guide on my iPhone and even more gorgeous on my iPad. Way to go, Steve!

- Great useful app

Let me just say this app to wild edibles is great. If you want to learn what you can or cannot eat in the wild, this is the app for you. Worth the cost. He gives you identification and warns you about poisonous look alikes. The best part he gives you recipes on how to cook the item. Thumbs up the best app yet

- Josh

Nice work Steve. You are on the cutting edge of foraging. I took a look at the lite version and knew I had to get the real deal. I particularly enjoy the ability to sort the results by season. I use an iPad, so a less fuzzy iPad friendly update would be much appreciated. Thanks for all your hard work!

- Fantastic Reference Tool

I'm learning that our yard near the woods is a veritable salad bowl of wild greens thanks to this app. I've also learned which plants to steer clear of, which I'd say is pretty valuable. Lots of photos, interesting information here and I appreciate the warning symbols that pop up to alert lookalike inedibles. Thanks, Wildman!

- Excellent Ap

This ap is wonderful. It takes all the guess work out of foraging. I think the best part is the detailed information about the edible plant as well as it's poisonous look-a-likes. If you liked the lite version like I did, support this company and buy the full version!

- THE Forager's App!

Great app! Multiple photos of each plant, scientific names, common names, look-likes, cautions, toxic warnings, recipes...it's complete! Steve is working hard to make this app grow into an invaluable reference for foragers. He is open to suggestions and comments, and I'm eager to see how the app evolves. I highly recommend this app!

- Great edible wild plant app, worth the money...

This is a great app for plant lovers and foragers I teach ethnobotany at University of San Diego and am always looking for good digital resources describing plant use, edible plants, ext. I put this app on my phone about a month ago and have used it quite a bit since then. The interface is easy and the level of information is about what I'm looking for, as a field companion. Great photos and handy 'nutritional' and 'harvesting' information for each plant. Look forward to learning more about foraging plants through this app. Definitely worth the 5 bucks. Dr. Kevin Curran USD

- Pictures way too small!!

Would be a great app if the pictures didn't become pixelated when expanded to fit an iPad screen. The small interface designed for an iPhone is a big disappointment for iPad users. A foraging guide is next to useless if the pictures are too small!! This app should have nice, LARGE, pictures that can fill an iPad screen without becoming blurry! An update is desperately need already to remedy this... Please fix!!!

- Beautiful and Useful

Magnificent app. Best for use in the NE and Midwest From my experience, but perfect for anyone in those regions (and there are some plants from other regions in it). Clear and useful photos, descriptions that show and tell you everything you need to know about the plant!

- Handy and Detailed

I love this app. It's a great way to learn about the greenery that exist anonymously beside the more familiar cultivated plants. The pictures are indispensable and the recipes are useful. Great great details! I actually wish there were more pictures showing the every plant throughout the seasons. I'm also looking forward to more plants!

- Great !

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!

- Fabulous resource!

Great resource to have in hand. ( Way easier to carry in the field than the books. ) Way better photos than I can ever take. Never have any problems with the app. And I recommend going out foraging with Wildman if you are ever in the NYC area!

- Great wild foraging app

Great app, features I especially like: -Multiple photos and botanical drawings to help ID plants, really captured the key features to help when I was out in the field - ability to filter by region and season - uses for plants medicinally and culinary included (with tasty looking recipes!)

- Great app

I have tried multiple field guides for edibles and this is by far the best created. It is well laid out and comes with actual pictures to help identify as well as telling you about poisonous lookalikes. Plus it details how to harvest. I highly recommend this app!

- Great app

This is by far the most comprehensive foraging app of the four that I have used. Large beautiful pictures and diagrams and a volume of quality information unmatched by any other app all formatted in a functional, easy to navigate, easy to digest manner.

- Excellent

Great to see Wildman Steve's extensive knowledge distilled here, with a touch of humor. Suggest making the glossary hypertext. Also, the "my notes" section didn't allow me to type in, at least on my iPad. A small bug, that doesn't affect the value of the app.

- Enjoying wildness in the city

Love this app and the idea behind it. Creating an awareness of just how much is edible and growing in the midst of NYC is terrific not to mention actually breaking out of the city and foraging elsewhere. Regularly updated with new discoveries and all sorts of tips and recipes, this app is reliable and thoroughly researched.

- All the essentials!

I use this app in Central Park. It describes all the common edibles in detail and makes it easy for the novice to start foraging. The recipes are an added bonus. A GPS addition would be nice so you could go back to that berry bush you found last year.

- Best phone app on the market

Steve Brill is recognized as one of the foremost authorities in the New England area of the United States. His app is a brilliant piece of work and his expert knowledge shines through. I highly recommend this app for your in field quick reference and as a supplemental study guide to a live mentor. Proper in every way.

- Great resource

The many photos of each plant plus descriptions and look-alike info make it really easy to identify what you are looking at. The stories make it a fun read. Having it as an app means it is easy to carry in the field.

- Unable to use

When I open my app, it does this update/download thing, then an email pops up, wanting to send an email to winterroot with all the install/failed install details. I push the send button, and nothing happens. I save the email to my drafts, and have sent it directly from my email app...several times with no response...and then, I have to force close the app, because it is literally unusable. If I can’t use it, I want my money back!

- Not worth the money

The upgrades that you need to purchase with this app do not have nearly the amount of information they say they’re going to have. They’ve missed lots of plants that are good edibles, at least in the New England area. They don’t seem to have a lot of information that could help you in a survival situation even after paying for all the downloads. Very unhappy with the purchase of the extras and not getting what they promised.

- Brilliant!

Wonderfully comprehensive app with all the info needed to ID wild edibles (including photos of each plant across the seasons or at different stages of maturity). Awesome as a field reference while foraging, and also great as a resource in the kitchen (includes great vegan recipes). Great value for the content.

- Great App! A must have for any forager!

I can't speak highly enough of this app. Very well put together. Super helpful while out in nature. Whether in your backyard or deep in the woods this is the must have app for anyone who enjoys nature and all it's bounty! PS Regardless of the description this app looks AWESOME on the iPad!

- User friendly and lots of fun!

Very handy reference for foragers, herbalists, and anyone with any natural curiosity about what's growing around them! Great pictures make safe identification easy. Lots of focus on safety. A definite must if going on a foraging tour with The Wildman, and a great companion to the books!

- FORMERLY Great resource!

Please fix this app. It used to be great. Unfortunately, it is now out of date and completely unusable. My old review when the app worked: This app is awesome. A must have for being out in the field. In one of the more recent updates, as other have said the warning info pops up with no way to exit. Quite annoying especially because it was not so in earlier versions. Would be great to see this fixed.

- Great resource!

Only downloaded the app a few days ago, and I've already used it successfully several times. Takes up a lot of space, but it's well worth it!

- Missin' nothing!

This app is amazing! Honestly I prob wud have paid atleast 10$ for it, cause it's soooo helpful in so many ways!! Thank u app maker! :-) One thing : I know there r a lot of plants in the database but u can't have too many keep adding plants please :-)

- Avoid and Move On

This app was always glitchy but provided wonderful information and images for foraging. But it hasn’t worked AT ALL for years and each of the many, many message I’ve sent to the developer has gone ignored and unanswered. Every six months or so, again, for years now, I test the app and hold my breath hoping, just hoping it will work. But it never works. Don’t waste your time and money. Zero stars.

- Amazing Application

I was referred to the application by a friend and can safely say that it was a great purchase. The recent update was well planned and thought through. I am unsure about the previous reviews regarding the version - but I got past the disclaimer screen without the problem on my 5S. The one caveat I have are the image sizes. The application does take up a fair amount of space. I would be willing to have lower quality images for the app if it took up less space.
