Needs some search functionality


This is fine for a real basic location app - user-added descriptions of launch sites are helpful. I am not seeing, however, a way to search for other locations - I can't find a search icon (I can set my current location and I can add a location to the database - but can't see a way to search in another state or country). How about adding some search functionality - search by distance from current location, by type of environment (ocean/flat water/etc.), free or fee, etc.?

Developer Response

Thanks for your feedback, we are working on adding new features such as a search function. For now, the best way to search is to pan and zoom on the map.

Not as good as previous app this replaced

Classic Arcade Maniac

I had a great boat ramp app, I believe called Launch Sites. It gave great info and feedback. I updated to OS 11 recently, and I noticed that app wasn’t working 100% so I updated it. It replaced the entire app with this paddling one, which has far less features. The icon and name of the app changed, in the same location where my old app was. You got to wonder what some of these developers are thinking. Why update a great app with an inferior one? I’d love to get my old one back.

What happened?!


Used to be able to make notes and mark favorites in launch sites. Need to be able to mark the runs you have done and rate them as well as enter details you find important. I really like the new App and the detailed info it provides but massive loss of functionality that makes it much less useful. And also shocking there is no search function..that’s just basic good sense.
