The databases which make up the basis of the arborist knot and fungi ID apps originate from the existing online galleries at Arbtalk. The first of these, the fungi ID gallery opened in July 2010, with the knot guide opening just over a year later. Both galleries proved to be very popular with the Arbtalk membership, and it soon became evident that people were using these galleries whenever they could, which included out in the field subject to their mobile reception at the time…….which was generally a huge sticking point. With that in mind, work began on the iPhone and android apps in the September 2011. Now some 8 months later we are extremely excited to be able to deliver these galleries to smartphone users worldwide, in a very slick, fast interface. The best part???….after the initial download you can browse the apps without the need for mobile reception, making it a truly mobile resource for fungi identification and knot tying out in the field.
