Good simple app-Even better if...

Should have the ability to add multiple licenses. For example, I was not able to manage my dependants licenses or catch with the app.

Fishing bc needs much improvement

I found the app just "ok", the species pictures are too cartooney and the artist drawings are not so accurate. I wouldn't want to bet loosing my boat because of the poor species descriptions to the DFO.

You should be able to swipe back to the previous page instead of starting all over again to view the species list. The ability to have a map list is also needed as you may cross two boundaries, as it is now you have to change it in settings every time.

The app has a long way to go to be good to really good,oh and when you pick a map from the bottom choice the app crashes.

Don't bet on winning a discussion with DFO with the salmon species shown here, close is not good enough.

I'm looking forward to some huge improvements.
