Much like wine, the flavor of oysters changes based on weather, region and method of cultivation. Oysterpedia, created by The Mermaid Inn restaurants in NYC, was designed to take the guesswork out of ordering oysters as well as to provide a reference…..

No Longer Functions
As a server unfamiliar with the many different oysters that keep landing on the menu I found the lite version helpful and a talking piece amongst the staff. Informative and good looking, the software's form and content melded near perfectly. Now that I've bought the paid version and upgraded to 1.02, the app just hangs, never opening. Don't forget those of us that have actually paid and please fix the problem.
Good, but plenty of room for improvement
Oysterpedia hits the spot for oyster lovers, but there is plenty of room for improvement. The database contains information mostly regarding oysters in the Northeast US and Canada, but has some data on West coast oysters and a few varieties in the Southeast US. However, there are dozens of oyster varieties in the Southeast that cannot be found in Oysterpedia, and I fear this might be the case in other regions as well. Mermaid Holding is based out of the Northeast, so it makes sense that they know the most about this area's harvest. However, the app could have so much more depth, it just saddens me to imagine them not broadening the database with more varieties. There's also a few varieties of West Coast oysters that are misfiled in the East Coast list. I'd recommend that Mermaid Holding also include a map (or incorporate Google Maps) so users can browse oyster varieties by location. Just mark the origins of each variety with a "tack" and have a pop-up with the oyster variety's name and maybe some supplemental information. Overall, I can only award the current version 3 stars out of 5. Plenty of room for improvement; I love the premise and I hope we see it happen.
