Wild Edibles Lite
It's amazing how much natural food is out there that most people never know it's edible. Knowing what edible plants are safe to eat when in a survival situation can determine how much food you will consume, and how much energy you will have to get out alive. Wild Edible's is the easiest food source to find IF you know what you're looking for and what to do after you harvest them. The Wild Edibles Free App covers a wide range of edible plants and making sure you have correctly identified them before you eat. This App also covers the best way to harvest edible plants and how much nutritional benefit's you can expect.

Wild Edibles Pro
This App is an extension of the Free Version Wild Edible's App above which goes into even more edible plants. All the edible plants covered inside the App come with a professional photo to insure you're correctly identifying the question. Many edible plants and mushrooms have similar lookalikes but can be harmful or deadly if consumed. The Wild Edible's App goes to great lengths to point out these similar, but very different plants and edible's found in nature. This App costs $7.00 to download so it's not for everyone, but if you're like me and know how important it is to correctly identify anything you eat, and the actual benefits from doing so, then its worth every penny if it helps me find even one additional food source when I need it most. Besides, its kind of fun and gives you something to do while backpacking or hiking in the Great Outdoors.
