Wild Edibles Lite



    Wild Edibles Lite's review

    Published: 2015-08-06, by .

    An info-packed reference tool for how and what food to forage

    • Tons of detail
    • Glossy photos
    • Easy to navigate
    • Loads of filtering options
    • Crappy design

    "Forage your own food"


    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.

    This app Desperately needs a section on the south east from the Mississippi River to the gulf to the Atlantic. I live in Tennessee, I've lived all over the country and spent time living in state parks and on city streets. I'm a classically trained chef and guides like this have allowed me to not only take care of myself but assisted in saving lives while awaiting medical aid or getting people to the hospital myself. Every region is well defined, except the south east. An app for this region is necessary

    tiny white lettering on a transparent background is practically unreadable. Will buy the full version if this is improved.

    Please make text bigger and change text back ground color. I want to use this but reading this is going to give me a migraine. Make it easier to read and I will happily buy full version.

    wouldn't get the full app if this is considered the demo... If you can not use the demo (reading the text), what makes the paid version any better aside from my money!

    The lite version is what it promises and is easy to maneuver. I never thought I could cook with flowers but daylilies turned out to be delicious. This guy knows what he's doing!
