Don't be fooled by the drab and unattractive interface: Wild Edibles is a seriously useful reference guide for anyone interested in foraging their own food. the app is packed with useful information, including where and how to get ingredients from, which parts to use, how to treat them safely, and how to differentiate between poisonous petals from edible perennials.
As well as a stash of detailed photos, this well-stocked catalog also boasts harvesting methods, preparation instructions, and ripping recipes.
There are tons of filtering options: you can search by keyword or swipe through image until you find the plant you're looking for, and filter by season, useful parts, habitat, and by whether it is edible, medicinal, or poisonous.
Each plant profile includes glossy photos and info on how to spot, similar varieties, things to watch out for, harvesting, uses, nutrition, and recipes. There's also a glossary of terms, and lots of helpful and important information to get your teeth into.
The design needs a bit of an overhaul: it´'s very dated and a little off putting, which is a shame because the app itself is actually great.
