Boat Ramps from TakeMeFishing.org is an exciting new app that lets you quickly locate and get directions to more than 35,000 boat ramps throughout the U.S.
Boat Ramps from TakeMeFishing.org has an easy-to-use interface and provides a list of ramps close to your current location or any zip code or city you enter into the application. Once you’ve found the boat ramp you’re looking for, the app can even provide you with directions to the ramp.
What's New in Version 1.51
Great idea, horribly done
The idea behind this app is good, and it would be very useful if the information were accurate. I tested it looking for ramps near where I live (Olympia, WA). Virtually every location had some major problem. Addresses were wrong, lat/long locations off. Some locations are not even near a body of water. One mini storage facility, miles from water, was listed as having a ramp. Some ramps were duplicate entries, with different names. I don't know where they got the data, but it obviously hasn't been checked. The features of the app are fine, but the information is so wrong as to make it useless. I can't see myself relying on this app to find a ramp, it is totally misleading, at least in my area.
the concept behind the app is pretty good and provides fairly decent information, i really like the feature that allows you to supply information about an existing ramp, looks like it takes a couple days but the data seems to get updated. i would like to see the app add additional information about the ramps and marinas including fees and amenities available at the different locations. also if you could search by moving the map that would add a definite improvement over the app the current search mechanism. overall fairly well done and by fair the best among apps that provide marine related poi information.
great idea, great execution
Great app. This app seems to get better with each release and now there's no reason not to download since its free. locates all the ramps and marinas in my area plus some I never knew existed
