A simple way to make it more useful


It’s a useful app but would be even better if it had a field where we could store our
fishing licence number so we can find it easily when fisheries officers come calling. It would be especially useful for fishing on Sydney Harbour where they are very... diligent.

And it would be extra awesome if you could scan the fish with your camera and have the app tell you what species it is and any limits that apply.

Doesn't work


Great idea but doesn't work. Crashes as soon as it is open despite multiple installs. Running latest IOS and iPhone 6.

Not good on my phone drops out


Drops out before I can search on my phone with the latest update.
