Karlskrona, Sweden – Adduce Studios today are pleased to announce the release or their latest app, Mushy 1.0, the new must-have application for anyone who enjoys mushrooms and foraging. Using the iPhone’s GPS, Mushy makes it simple to mark your mushrooming spots on a map so that you can find them year after year. It’s pre-populated with a list of the most popular mushroom species, so you can record and date the find as well as add your own notes and photo.
The joy of foraging for mushrooms is hard to beat – a relaxing day out in the woods can be followed by a delicious meal of free “wild food” on your return home. Most of us have a few favorite spots and there’s always the chance to stumble on a new patch, but the true mushroom fanatic needs a way to mark and return to their mushroom sweet spots.
Using the iPhone’s GPS, Mushy makes it simple to mark your mushrooming spots on a map so that you can find them year after year. It’s pre-populated with a list of the most popular mushroom species, so you can record and date the find as well as add your own notes and photo.
Once a spot is marked, Mushy lets you search for it and shows what is around you on a moving map display. If a spot has been particularly kind to you, add it to your favorites so you can easily return to it. And if you’re feeling really altruistic, use the built-in sharing features to share it with your nearest and dearest via e-mail.

While there are many varieties of delicious edible mushrooms, there are also varieties that can cause sickness or even death. Even some varieties that are edible can cause adverse reactions if not properly prepared and cooked. It takes study and experience to be able to distinguish between what is edible and what is poisonous, especially since they may look quite similar.
It’s best to start off picking the easily recognized varieties and then build your knowledge from there – many experts recommend that you practice collecting and identifying mushrooms for some time before you even consider eating what you pick. You should also get a good identification guidebook, take a course on recognizing edible mushrooms or learn from an expert – maybe there is one among your friends, family and acquaintances. And the golden rule – if in doubt, don’t eat it!
